Catherine Carton is the lady behind the award-winning interiors and lifestyle blog daintydressdiaries.com. She is a lover of upcycling, recycling and making the old new again.
Dainty Dress Diaries was created in 2014. While brain-dumping potential names with a workmate, Catherine and her pal decided to go with ‘Dainty’ because Catherine is 4’11”, ‘Dress’ because all she wore was cute dresses, and ‘Diaries’ so that the blog could cover a wide range of topics.
In the beginning, Catherine mostly blogged about vintage style, fashion and homeware, but over the years she has become known for her warm personality and the unique creative projects she shares with her online community.
Dainty Dress Diaries grew from Catherine Carton's popular blog and vlog channels, her 'floral, chalk painted, tea dress-wearing, creative corner of the internet'. Afternoon craft projects, recycling & upcycling ideas, gardening tips & sewing inspiration: the home you want on the budget you have.
