Cath Kidston Rocks iPhones...

My computer was giving me some monster trouble signing online, maintaining a consistent signal, and letting me write blog posts or answer emails. I finally made an appointment to go to the Apple store and have a "genius" (that's what they call their techs!) help me figure out what the problem was.

It turned out that my airport card had died and needed to be replaced. While I was waiting for the repair to be effected, I strolled through the store and looked at all their goodies. Tables laden with iPads for people to try; iMacs with HUGE screens; and walls of accessories.
This one was my absolute favorite!
What especially caught my attention was an area that took up about 8' x 10' of pegboard, filled with all sorts of iPhone covers. I started to look for something that might have a sewing/quilting/needlework sort of theme and came across these fabulous Cath Kidston covers.

In case you're not familiar with Cath, you can check out her U.S. webpage here. She's been a favorite in the UK for years, with her wonderful vintage fabric patterns and homemaking accessories.
Great if you're reaching for a star!
I wasn't able to make a choice while I was there yesterday, but I now know which one I want and will make a second trip to procure one. Rule Britannia...pip, pip and all. (giggle)
Flower Power is always a great choice!
If you have an iPhone 4, you just might want to find an Apple store near you to get one of Cath's phone covers for yourself.

By the way, my computer is back up and running at full speed now, so don't be surprised if you finally get an reply to all the wonderful comments you've been leaving for me!

PS. Kelly (Tag's breeder) saw my post about the Katherine's wedding earrings and sent me this link to purchase some knock-offs. I should have guessed that someone would have already copied them. Thanks, Kelly for letting me know!!

Hi! Glad your computer is o.k. How can an airport card (I don't even know what that is) cause all that trouble? Which cover did you decide on?
Warm Regards,

Oh my goodness, I couldn't live without my laptop. So glad your computer is back up and running. Those are some cute iPhone covers. Thanks for sharing.

Good morning! Now, of course, I will have to google this Kath and see if there is anything I need to buy. Blogging is an expensive hobby. Read a blog, google, paypal. So did you get the knock offs? They would look good with your new haircut!

Some day I want to actually go into an Apple store. I have no tech toys but do love them. I just knew you would pick the British cover. And how fun to find the "Middleton" acorn earrings for your collection. Now I shall Google Cath Kidston to familiarize myself with her work. Thursday Summer Smiles dear...

If I had an iphone, I'd pick the same cover you's awesome. I've been following Cath Kidston since the last time I was in England (2002). Before that, every time I went to England I was a huge Laura Ashley fan. I just can't get enough of can never go overboard with anything from Britain.
