Red and Green Christmas kitchen hutch. Vintage christmas village

You may remember last year’s Christmas Decorations as being a bit over the top. If you don’t recall, let me remind you… I had 12 trees, yes 12 (see them all here).  Well this year Christmas went on a diet, like a serious don’t recognize you slim down. I put up 1 tree, and spiffed up a few […]

Making Spirts Bright FREE printable

Each year I like to switch up my holiday decor, and since this is the first year of owning a restaurant and lounge, I thought adding a Holiday Bar Cart into the mix would be the perfect addition. When I saw everything Shutterfly had to offer in this year I couldn’t resist adding pieces from their […]

Sleigh Rides, Firewood, Fresh Cut Trees, Free Silhouette Christmas Cut Files

This time of year when my crafting routine is in overdrive, I spend countless hours in front of the computer fiddling with Christmas Silhouette cut files. I love making images and fonts fit together, its a whole different creative side of me… and one that my husband doesn’t mind the mess of! My life has been a […]

Christmas village tree. Decorated with glistening houses and beautiful white bulbs

This past weekend we opened the doors of our home to welcome locals in for live Christmas Home Tour. It was an amazing experience to be able to share my home and love of Christmas with old friends and new.  I want to start my home tour off by expressing my gratitude to everyone who came out […]

We Believe vintage santa canvas- custom print from Shutterfly

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the Fynes house! First up on the decorating list was the dining room.  I had the pleasure of creating my holiday home decor with Shutterfly this year.

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 […]

Tips for styling a Christmas hutch

I love my new hutch, since giving our kitchen a makeover last month I’ve really had a great time decorating it, rearranging it, finding new little trinkets in the perfect colors to add to it (ok, I don’t get out much). But you know what has been the best part yet?  Getting the hutch gussied up for […]

glittery pink Christmas village

Next to putting up my Christmas tree(s), creating a Christmas village is one of my favourite parts of holiday decorating. This year I thought I would give it a unique spin and incorporate it into my baking pan gallery wall. It turned out so cute it has been featured in a new holiday magazine MERRY […]

Rustic Christmas decorating

Growing up in the country and on a farm one would say I’ve lived quite the rustic life. My mom had good taste in decor, but my Dad was the great white hunter type, so our TV room also doubled as big game trophy room (there are only so many ways you can fix up a […]

Handmade Christmas wreath tutorial

Last year during the holidays my most asked question was ‘How do you make a Christmas wreath?”. This year I thought I would add to my wreath making madness and share a tutorial how you can make a Traditional Christmas Wreath. Making your own natural wreath is a great and inexpensive way to add to your […]

Rustic Christmas Home Tour - OVER 30 trees, you won't believe your eyes!!

I was planning an epic holiday home tour this year, but guess what? Santa didn’t send his cleaning elves my way!! I have for you the compressed version! Meaning the clutter, unused craft supplies, heinous gift wrap mess, yeah- I cropped that out. I’d love for you to think my holiday home is pristine and […]

Christmas wreath made with garbage WOOL SOCKS!

I love wool socks but for some reason the toes seem to wear so easily. I hate to throw anything I could create with away (I might be border-line craft hoarder), so I came up with this Wool Sock Christmas Wreath to give them a cozy new life! For this wool sock Christmas wreath project […]
