Cath Kidston/Greengate Inspired Bakeware and Blanket



If you're like me and LOVE everything Cath Kidston you will understand my joy at these incredible finds!  I let out a little squeal when I saw them, in a Michael's no less!  If you are in the USA, you should have one near you.  For my overseas followers, Michael's is a wonderful craft store.


Just LOOK at these measuring cups, dipping bowls and measuring spoons!  Doesn't it scream Cath Kidston?  I was like a little kid playing with the measuring cups.....stacking and unstacking them, admiring them, enjoying their lovely colors.  I found them in the isle where they have all the bins for things costing $1 - $5.00.  Not the bins in the front of the store where everything is $1.


 The spoons were $5.....and come in two different colorways.  Red and blue.  The little dipping bowls, in the 2nd photo, were $3.  The stacking measuring cups were $5.  All are ceramic, not plastic or melamine.


Of course, I then ran over to the yarn isle to pick out my colors for a baby blanket.  The pattern is ready to purchase from my Etsy shop!






I snatched up a few of each for future presents.  They also had big spoon rests and decent sized coffee mugs with the same designs.  If you are not familiar with Cath Kidston, find her site here.

Yarn tip:
When winding yarn from a hank, snip a little piece off and tape it to the yarn band.  Mark the label with any notes from your project.  You'll have a handy reference if you use that yarn again.

Food tip:
I use lemons all the time when I cook.  I love how they look in a bowl on the counter, but that is not the best way to store them.  They last 4 times longer when I store them in a ziplock bag in the fridge.

  9. Hello Sheila, I found your blog on Susan Dougill's Wednesday What Are You Doing? and am glad I did! I was recently introduced to Cath Kidston and am quickly become addicted to her look. I'm about to embark on my own Cath Kidston-inspired large afghan and look forward to posting about it on my blog when it's finished. I absolutely LOVE those spoons and nesting bowls. I wonder if our Michaels has them. I shall have to investigate this weekend! Happy Crocheting!

    2. Sheila, thanks again for your post! I found the measuring bowls and the stacking bowls at Michaels...woo hoo! The spoons were there, too, but I opted not to get them. I also selected my yarn colors for my upcoming Cath Kidston-inspired afghan. Exciting! I just added a new linky widget to my blog and wanted to invite you to add yours. I know my readers would really enjoy your blog. If interested, you can find it here: http://gocrochetcrazy.blogspot.com/2014/03/free-pattern-friday-link-long.html Thank you again!

  10. I just love the colors of your blanket. So cheery and perfect. I gave my sister some measuring things that look similar to that for Christmas a few years ago, but they DID NOT cost that little. I'm super jealous right now. What a find!

  14. That's a big bundle of cuteness :) Such, fun and lovely colors on the blanket! Makes me happy to look at it. The Cath Kidston cups and spoons are uber cute too. Too bad there's no Michael's near me. Well, there is but its not really reachable since I don't have a car :(

  18. I really love the colours in the blanket, they are so gorgeous. You must have felt like a kid at Christmas with your measurers - I always get like that with new yarns, I have to put them somewhere that I can see them for a few days before I can bear to hide them!
