Welcome to Las Vegas Sign

Hi friends! I’m here in sunny Las Vegas having a bit of downtime with my Mr. Fynes, my mom and step-dad. It has really been wonderful and so relaxing (seriously relaxing, as we speak I’m sitting in the shade by the pool sipping a cool drink). Sad its all coming to a close but wanted […]

How We Roll Rolling Pin sign on reclaimed wood

Just after Christmas this year I bought myself a scroll saw. It was a really exciting purchase because I wanted one for a loooong time, but I was intimidated by such a ‘big tool’. I don’t know what I was thinking, my little baby is just like the kitten of tools. Nothing to AT ALL to be […]

As you know I’m knee deep in laundry room makeover. It came together quickly once I got Captain Carpentry (aka my awesome brother) on board. In an afternoon it went from a hole in the wall to an amazing functional space. But it still needs some pretty, so I set out on the hunt for […]
