Fynes Designs Christmas Home Tour

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! Mr. Fynes thinks that I’ve gone Christmas bonkers (and I’ll probably think that at take down time) but I love everything about the season, and […]

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 […]

Fluffy Christmas wreath made from Dollarstore dusters

Last year my friend Lucy from Craftberrry Bush  (who’s style I think is the bomb.com, I actually think I want to be her when I grow up) had the most fabulous idea for a Christmas wreath. She asked her readers if her idea was Brilliant or Crazy, and she got a big huge, both hands in the air BRILLIANT from my […]

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 […]

Making your own natural wreath is a great and inexpensive way to add to your […]
