Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. – Scarves on a Hanger

by Destini on January 23, 2014

For awhile I have followed a lot of blogs that had a lot of inspiration for things for my “future house”. What’s great now is that I have a house to do all those things I have wanted.  Including ORGANIZATION.

I saw this pin and thought it was perfect for myself! I have a billion scarves, and have always just used hooks on the back of my closet door to organize them. When we got the new house, I didn’t have hooks on my doors yet, and needed a solution for my massive pile of scarves!

This look fairly simple and pretty idiot proof. I felt I was ready!


I may have a scarf problem, but it’s cold here and these are a pretty practical *and pretty* accessory.

Saw it, pinned it - scarves-1This was going to be a super easy, super cheap and extremely fast to make. Perfect for my first DIY in the house. All you need is a pack of shower curtain rings

Saw it, pinned it - scarves-2

And a hanger!!

Saw it, pinned it - scarves-3

Hook all the shower curtain rings around the hanger like so.

Saw it, pinned it - scarves-5-2

Organize the order in which you want your scarves. I recommend putting the heavier scarves on each end for balance , or they will pull down on one end of the hanger.

Saw it, pinned it - scarves-4-2

And just hoop the scarves through! SO SIMPLE! Saw it, pinned it - scarves-7

I hope you liked my little DIY, thing’s have become a little more technical in the household since this. But it was a great start! What other life hacks do you love and feel like everyone should know and do? SHARE 🙂

A new journey …. gluten free

by Destini on February 23, 2013

No new recipe today, but a journey into trying to cook/bake gluten free. Recently my husband has realized that he has a gluten issue. For those of you that have followed my blog for awhile know that he also has a lactose issue (poor guy). Even with the removal of dairy he was still experiencing slight discomfort in his tummy. After a week of having NO gluten in his diet, he has come to realize that he does have a gluten issue. Just to be sure, he will be seeing a Nutrapath to have a blood test done to verify this.

When he first mentioned that he believed he had a gluten problem, my first thought was “what am I going to make him for lunch & dinner”. My husband enjoys his bread, and often will have wraps or sandwiches for lunch. With a trip to the grocery store, I soon realized that if we are going to start purchasing gluten free bread, this will be VERY expensive. When we were in Arizona, “gluten free” was something that was offered everywhere and you didn’t break the bank to eat clear of gluten. Back home, that is a different story.

This is why I LOVE Pintrest, I recently have created a Gluten Free board, and have been posting a lot of recipes that are “gluten free”. As you will notice,  there is a lot of bread recipes pinned currently. And today I just went to Bulk Barn and purchased everything I need to make a loaf of gluten free bread. The ingredients were quite costly. I think we spent $68. But we purchased other gluten free items that are more expensive or not available at our regular grocery store. I hope anyone near a Trader Joes or Whole Food knows how LUCKY they are. I bought enough flours and such that I should be able to make quite a few loafs. A gluten free loaf of the Udi’s bread here is $6.99 and its frozen.

I will keep you posted on how this venture goes, and you can be darn sure that I will be creating gluten free recipes on the blog. Also, a local Manitoba Food Blogger recently just had a gluten free book published and I just might be giving a copy away on the blog SOON!

If any of you gluten free foodies out there have any suggestions or recipes you would like to share, link them up in the comments! Any help would be wonderful!

Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
