I just thought this set was the most beautiful thing ever when I came across it on Ebay, I mean two of my favourite things - Beatrix Potter tales and Cath Kidston fabrics in one - how could I possibly resist?! I've always loved Beatrix Potter and grew up with a fondness for the tales and the beloved characters, if you're not familiar then you have to read The Tale of Peter Rabbit, it's the 10th best selling children's book of all time people! I now have this cushion proped up on my bed, I think it's just beautiful and I love that my favourite characters are on the front - Peter Rabbit, the Flopsy Bunnies, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.
I only had the quilt on my bed for a short while, I think it's too precious to have out, especially when Tyler Lee and his chocolate face usually finds his way to my bed! It matches the cushion perfectly though and I really love the patchwork on it. I've always wanted a patchwork quilt so now I finally have one of my very own (albeit it is for a little one!). What I love about the set is that it's one of a kind, it was handmade for a baby girl but never used and it makes it all the more special knowing I'm the only person with this.
I really need to stop with the Beatrix Potter collecting for the moment though, I'm seriously broke from it all - who knew that anything with the characters was so sought after and so bloody expensive! I've also gotten Tyler Lee his very own handmade patchwork quilt from the super lovely and talented Scarlett's Cozy Cottage on Etsy, so I'll be sure to show that off when it arrives from America. I can envision myself ending up with a room just for all these pretty things one day, I'm still so in awe of this bloggers Peter Rabbit room, it's so beautiful and homely! Jacek is going to kill me if I buy anything else, you can safely bet that I'm now on a spending ban, it was so worth it though, just look at the prettiness and it's all mine! My blog's tagline is 'lose yourself in all things beautiful', so if I didn't have anything beautiful things to show you all I wouldn't be really fulfilling the objective of my blog now would I? I'm seriously clutching at straws here trying to justify this purchase but I love it and that's all that matters, right?!
Are you a Beatrix Potter fan too?
