My name is Catherine and Vintage Frills is my little corner of the internet. I’ve been writing this blog for over 7 years and I’ve loved nearly every minute of it. The blog has always been a place to feel creative, enjoy pretty things and celebrate everything that I enjoy. Here you’ll find lots of pretty dresses, book reviews and vintage bakes.
As well as blogging I’m a mummy to two lovely girls who are 13 and 8. Sometimes I’ll share our adventures on here, I love to take them to interesting places and share my love of old houses with them. I’m a big history geek and I make a lot of use of my National Trust membership with the kids.
I’ve always loved baking and have a big collection of vintage cookery books. I make lots of my own recipes based on original vintage ones. You can find lots of these in the baking section of the blog. I also write a monthly food column for Vintage Life Magazine. you can find lots of my food writing work in the Other Writing section of the blog.
I have loved old things for my whole life. I come from a very long line of antiques dealers, going way back to my Great Great Grandfather and only skipping my parents generation. I used to sell vintage clothing full time, travelling to fairs and events every weekend. Now I stick to selling on my Etsy shop, which is packed with pretty dresses and vintage jewellery.
I adore dresses and have way too many in my collection, both vintage and modern. On the blog you can expect to see a selection of dress reviews and pictures of my true vintage pieces in my Outfits section. I like to go into lots of detail when reviewing items as well as looking on the history of my original vintage pieces, so I hope everyone gains something from reading my posts.
I love reading, especially history books and biographies. Take a look at my Books section to see my latest reviews. I’m always on the look out for new books to read, so send your recommendations my way.
Work with me: I have worked with a huge selection of companies and brands and only choose to work with those that fit perfectly with the blog. If you think we’re a good fit, take a look at my Media Kit and Contact me to discuss further.
