aside note:
aaron, jessica and myself got together a few years back and made paper chains of all shapes and sizes. let me tell u, had these books been available then, we would definitely have used them up. they are amazing for all kinds of paper projects, the hardest part would be choosing patterns and then putting scissors to them!

cath kidston

"Cath Kidston Ltd was founded in 1993 when designer Cath Kidston opened a tiny shop in London’s Holland Park. She began by selling the vintage fabrics, wallpapers and brightly-painted junk furniture she remembered fondly from her childhood. Her clever, witty re-working of traditional English country house style meant that her shop soon became a cult success."

back in 2003 or 4, i bought cath kidston for the shop. it was, of course, a smash sensation but soon became to expensive to import and then cath kidston stores opened in mahattan and other major cites, and it just did not make sense to sell it anymore. this left a huge hole at o'suz as her goods had been such a lovely fit for so many reasons. luckily, chronicle books began publishing many papergoods created by cath herself. we have sold them all at times and wait each year to see what might crop up new in her line up of vintagey floral goodness.
