I went out with my friend Maria last week to Brand Junction and we were so excited to find a Laura Ashley store there. I went crazy and spent up big. I bought 3 of these throw rugs for my couch to match the one I already had. Got them for half price so why not.

And then we both bought for our daughters these gorgeous eiderdowns. We got them for $100.00 very cheap and they are so snuggly and warm and we couldn't resist buying the matching pillowcases which were also on sale. I would have bought one of everything if I had the money there are so many gorgeous things in that store. After all that shopping we went and had a nice lunch.

Thanks everyone with help for naming my mum's kitty. She liked the name my kids chose for her Milly. She came and picked her up on the weekend and she loved her. She is going to be one very spoilt cat.

Thanks for dropping by have a great week.

Hi Carol, how gorgeous is that little kitten she is sooo CUTE! I would love a cat but being close to a national park I am worried about the wildlife, still you have made me scheme!! Yummo on the Laura Ashley too, I have become a bit addicted to that store lately so will have to get back there and check out those throws, oh and the eiderdowns too!
