CK Alternatives

On my travels recently I have found some lovely Cath Kidston alternatives with a thriftier price tag so of course I have to share them with you

These wallpapers can be found here from the Millie collection and the spotted oil cloth type fabric is from The Range

And whilst on the subject of bargains if any of you love Yankee Candles and have a Home Store & More close by they are selling large jars for half price!

I have already brought 2 for Christmas presents! Yes this is the earliest I've started buying presents

I have a similar wallpaper to the white one in my lounge, it was a third of the price of CK!
Sorry to hear about your nan, I'm glad the funeral went well.

Love the wallpaper! We don't have a Home Store & More here but we do have a Home Goods store so I'll check there and see if they have the Yankee Candles on sale.

I really adore Cath Kidston, just not the price tag. So, to have an alternative at a less expensive price is a nice surprise.

Sweet wishes,
