About me & Disclaimer

Hi Everyone!

My name is Catherine and welcome to my floral, chalk painted,  tea dress-wearing, creative corner of the internet. This is my place to share my love of all things creative. I am a bit of a jack of all trades when it comes to creativity, from drilling to sewing, to photography and videography, I do it all.  I love to transform old into new and document it along the way.

I started blogging back in February 2014. I originally wanted to blog about fashion but as I only ever wear dresses (hence the name) I didn’t really have a direction, then that spring I had attended some furniture painting workshops and then my love of all things crafty and creative was rediscovered. I then became more confident in my blogging abilities as I had a bit more of a direction. I still share my outfit posts but I stick to what I love which is adorable tea dresses and outfits with a vintage flair. I have also started to share more personal posts on my blog as I grow and learn as a person. I have added a travel and places corner to my blog as one of my favorite things to do is solo travel and I love travel photography.

Running my blog and my Youtube channel is currently my hobby and I do work full-time, however, I always aim to have a fresh piece of content for you every Thursday on my Youtube and website.

I hope to inspire you to create the home and life you want to with whatever budget you have. I believe that we can all create the life we want and that we can do this through creativity. I have tons of projects on this blog so I hope you get lots of inspiration when navigating around my website and Youtube channel. I love seeing your projects so do reach out on Instagram or Facebook to share your work with me.

As my blog grows I aim to stay true to what my blog is about so I will always disclose at the bottom of my posts if an item was sent to me or if I was paid to promote an item. As tempting as it is to take free items I always only accept items that I love and would genuinely purchase myself. However at the moment Blondie the cat gets sent way more items than I do but hey she is #instafamous after all. The past few years I have been delighted to do some collaborations with Laura Ashley, Marks and Spencer, Dorothy Perkins to name but a few, if you are interested in collaborating then drop me an email by clicking the contact form and we can chat.


From time to time I may work with brands and get paid to do so. I am also a member of affiliate networks and I sometimes use affiliate links within my site. I always declare using AD on any posts where I have collaborated with a brand on a paid basis. Where I have used an affiliate link I will mention it at the end of the blog post. As my blog grows I have been able to work with some of my favorite brands and will continue to only work and endorse brands and products I truly love and ones I know you love too. The revenue I make from my blog enables me to put the money back into the blog and increase the quality of my content so thank you for the continued support.

Feel free to contact me with any questions and you can find me over on Instagram and over on Facebook, You can also click on the contact button on the top of the site and fill in the contact form.

Look forward to hearing from you.

    So…I first stumbled upon one of your videos while looking for “DIY a tea tray” guides. But a lot of your other videos and DIY ideas have caught my eye as well; also, one of my best mates is in Bandon (we were pen friends when we were growing up, I have always lived here in the USA) and so I have that American sentimental thing about Ireland going on (blush). You always give me about ten different ideas for things to do every time you post a video.

    If you ever find yourself in Brooklyn, give a shout.
