About Me

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. 

I am Lynn and I moved to New York in 2002 and have been married to my wonderful husband since 2007. 

I am very fortunate to be able to stay home with our 2 beautiful daughters.  It is work as they keep me on the go, but I love every minute of it.  It is truly rewarding at the end of the day.

I enjoy decorating, thrift shopping, flea markets, dumpster diving, going to auctions, just going on the hunt finding great finds :)  I love to redo furniture & find unique items for our home.  I am finding that painting & redoing furniture gives the opportunity to let some of the daily stresses to flow on away.

We recently (June 15, 2012) lost our newly purchased home to a devastating fire.  You can read all about that under The Ridge Road Rebuild.

I started this blog to journal our daily life as we began the rebuilding process.  I have let it guide me to writing & sharing more than just the rebuild.  I am hopeful one day my girls can look back & see the strength that through our family & friends we rebuilt bigger & better.  We were able to maintain & become a stronger family by seeing the love we have for one another.  We were each others spine when we felt we would crumble!

I hope you will enjoy reading!


  1. Lynn,

    Your home is gorgeous! I wanted to comment on your PaPa's bench. I have my Grandpa's that looks almost exactly like yours! He too was a carpenter who in his early career built homes in Oklahoma! I wish I had your email address and I would send you a pic of my bench.
