April's orders

Great news,

I will be at the craft festival in the royal marine hotel, Dunlaoghaire on the 22nd of May, Its my first time to have a table and display and sell my work so I am really nervous but excited. 
If you are passing by please pop in and have a peep.
One of my things to do this year was to push myself out of my comfort zone and take part in a fair.  

April has been a really busy month so far, plenty of memory bears keeping me busy and I had a rush on the initial letter frames and bunting for some new babies and communion season. I am now also on a teddy bear making mission to make sure I have enough stock for the fair. 
Thank you so much for keeping me so busy. 

Here is some pics of this months orders so have a peep and let me know your fave in the comment section. 
To place an order have a look over on daintydressdiaries.com and fill out the contact form and I will email you back. 

Thanks for stopping by,
Catherine.

Spring wedding guest outfit inspiration.

Floral and fabulous.

Hi everyone. 
Today I have three cute looks to share that I think would look fab for a Spring/Summer wedding. Now it wasn't until I uploaded the pictures that I noticed that they area all floral! I adore floral, although the Mister calls it granny floral lol, men don't understand that floral isn't just for curtains. 

If you are not a floral fan you could still shop these looks but look for options in plain colors. Below I will have the link, details and fit to each outfit. 

I would love to see your Summer wedding looks so don't forget to tag me on Instagram.

My mini living room makeover.

Spring has sprung.

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by, today I just want to share some pics of my mini Laura Ashley makeover with you. 
You might of seen in this blog post that back in January I picked up this Beatrice Cyclamen wall paper from Laura Ashley in the January sales. I had seen this in the AW magazine and just loved it, I picked up a sample and decided to go for it,Now it took a few weeks of persistent nagging to get it hung on the wall but as you can see I finally got it up. 
 Some of you might remember my damask wallpaper that I had which I did love but I just wanted to inject a bit of color into the room for spring.
My living room gets daylight in the mornings so wanted some subtle color to lift the room when the lighting was dull in afternoon. 

So to freshen up the room I used two rolls of this Laura Ashley wallpaper, a meter and a half meter of the matching fabric to make some cushions and I painted my skirting boards cream, 
For a diy in skirting boards you can have a peep here.

Have a peep below at the pics and share and tag your diy projects over on Instagram and in the comments below. 

Chat soon,
Catherine. 


All of the furniture in the pic including the fireplace is all painted, if you click on the upcycle projects tab above you will find posts on each of these if you fancy tackling the job yourself.
