It's no wonder the whimsical and retro looking pieces that Cath Kidston creates have caught on worldwide. There is a real comfort to the modern nostalgia she evokes.
So when came across her Chicken Kitchen Notes, I swooned. The chickens, the gingham and the colour palettes make me think of picnics, cold fried chicken and warm potato salad with a vinegar mustard dressing. It's kind of like she takes happy-go-lucky images and memories and presents them in the sweetest package.
A firm rectangular magnetic board with rounded corners is covered in pretty paint-brushed chickens of all colours - pink, green, red and blue. It's almost too adorable to handle. But don't worry, you will.
The board holds 2 small notebooks: a shopping list and a menu pad (in other words, everything you need to get dinner on the table every night with ease). A small red pencil with white polka dots fits neatly in between. It's simply divine and a fantastic gift for anyone who spends time in the kitchen or at the stove.
As much as I want to be organized, I want my papers and things to look good too. Cath delivers both. Now and always.
Cath Kidston Chicken Kitchen Notes make what used to be a chore, a complete and utter delight.
