DIY Jewelry Organizer

January 8th, 2015 | woodworking

The Fynes house is slowly getting back into the swing of things, organizing like most is on top of our list for this month. To be honest is a bit of a daunting job. I think every room has one  area that needs major attention. I decided not to overwhelm myself and start small. The bathroom has […]

The Best of 2014

January 2nd, 2015 | Review

Ahhh, a new year, Welcome 2015! FRESH, wipe the slate clean, get rid of the clutter, loose the weight that set up shop on my waistline over the holidays, prepare for new beginnings, and celebrate 2014 success.

I hope you all had a very happy holiday, I sure did! We spent Christmas at my moms lake house (where there is no phone or cell service) it was so peaceful to be unplugged, (maybe peaceful isn’t the word, there was 30 people there) a lot of fun had though! I’m still in Holiday […]

Hot Chocolate Candy Cane Float in one easy step!

We love hot chocolate around here, most often with the typical marshmallow topping, but every once in a while I go a little crazy and try something new… I think we found a winner!

Ribbon wrapped cookie jars from the dollar store

Do you give Christmas Baking gifts? Honestly I seldom do because I’m so crazy busy with catering this time of year. But when I do get the chance to whip up some yummy cookies or a tasty nuts and bolts snack I love to package them up really cute! Swing by the dollar store and grab […]

Welcome to my Christmas Home Tour, I’m so excited to show you around! I don’t have much to say other than I’ve poured my heart into my decorating this year!

feminine pink vintage Christmas

I think I’ve hit every stop on the rustic vintage train for Christmas this year. First I brought you a Rustic Christmas Cabin, a DIY Vintage Sled, a birch bark inspired Christmas Centrepiece, and knock off Enamelware Christmas tree pots, everything is red, traditional, and dosed with plaid, and a dash of rust. So when putting […]

Glittery Snowman Wreath

Today I have a fun project that I whipped together the other night to feed my wreath making addiction. I have such a miss mash of Christmas decorating style, but this year not enough bright fun stuff so I had to put together this cute Glittery Snowman Wreath! A few weeks ago Rebecca at The […]


I have a tiny obsession with Enamel Wear Vintage Dishes. I love the gloss sheen of the enamel, the color combinations, and the random dents and chips that tell a story of days gone by. I have a few pieces I cherish that I have displayed in my kitchen hutch , but I wanted some to use for my holiday […]
