About

Hi there, sweet friend! I am so happy that you’re here!

I’m Katie, the maker and blogger behind Character & Charm, a home + DIY blog with an old soul, inspired by my love for the character and charm of old houses and handpicked antique finds.

A little bit about me… I’m an old soul at heart, a young newlywed, a dog mama and a wannabe homesteader. Although I’d typically consider myself to be a “planner” type, I ironically tend to dream up and start DIY projects on a whim! You can usually find me out junking, rehabbing old furniture or snuggled up with a good book – almost always with a latte in hand. And my hands are usually speckled with bits of dried paint or sawdust from a project I’m working on!

I tend to be more of a homebody, most days. I like my books, my coffee, my creative outlets, and quiet time at home with my hubby and pup. It’s those moments of simplicity that I truly cherish the most.

My hubby and I live in a 1963 split-level fixer upper that we’re renovating little by little. This is our very first home, so it’s definitely been a labor of love! I enjoy sharing how we’ve added “old house” character and charm to our home on a budget using a collective of time-worn antiques, handmade items and flea market finds. We’re learning a TON along the way, as we pour our heart and soul into every nook and cranny to make our house a home!
