Cath Kidston in Hither Green!

Yes that’s right…Cath Kidston had a photo shoot in You Don’t Bring Me Flowers  For anyone who has been inside this gorgeous vintage flower/tea shop, it’s not hard to understand why.  Even though they don’t try to be…they are ‘very Cath Kidston’  I feel very lucky to have this gem of a place on the same road as my shop and can’t wait to see the pictures!  I will post them on here when they’re finally printed, however when photo shoots happen it can be for up to a year ahead!

Here are some pictures taken from the YDBMF website but if you can…pay them a visit

Or if you fancy something  a little more mediterranean, visit my lovely sister in law, Laura at Hither Green Deli!  They regularly keep me fed and watered when I’m working at the shop.

In the meantime,  here are some of my favourite things from Cath Kidston, although it’s hard to pick just a few!

Prince Charles recently visited the Cafe of Good Hope on Hither Green Lane to see all the hard work Barry and Margaret Mizen do for young people in the area. I remember the day their lives changed forever.  I live on the next road up from where their family live and the tension and mood was horrible as the police did all their investigations. It’s not a day I will forget and as a mother of four children, I can’t quite comprehend what the Mizen family must have and are still going  through.  It’s quite amazing how Jimmy’s parents have turned such a tragic event into something so positive for their community.  They are an inspiration.

See you soon
