cheap trick: how to get inexpensive custom framing

I’ve held off writing this post because there’s a definite possibility that everyone already knows about this “trick” and my brain was all, “What if everyone that reads this gives their computer the side eye and thinks to themselves ‘there goes Molly again with the totally useless information’” and then I realized that’s a silly thing to be worried about because THIS WHOLE BLOG is useless information. In the grand scheme of things. But if I help one of you pull the trigger on framing some art you’ve had rolled up under your bed for eight months, or if I help…

you can go shave your couch now: how to remove pilling from upholstery

And now, for something completely different: taking a departure from room tours, currently posts, and crafty things to sit yall down and tell you about the night that I shaved my couch. Yah. Let that settle. You may remember that I mentioned in this post about how things are holding up that the couch is still as comfy as ever, but was showing a bunch of pilling on the upholstery. I totally admit fault to buying a sofa with an open-weave knit fabric and letting my 65 pound dog on it every single day, but I was stressing about what…

(Finn is way more excited about Christmas than he looks. The reality is we were losing a football game that we should have been winning as I was taking these pictures,…

Making: Progress on the study!! So excited to share when it’s finished. Cooking: Tried two new (to me) Skinnytaste recipes this month – her chicken enchiladas and this noodly dish with parsnips in place of our usual zucchini. I liked the parsnips texture better than zucchini, and it was less watery which was great, but it’s a little bit sweet which is not really my thing. The quest for the perfect low-carb vegetable noodle continues. Drinking: My usual rotation of iced coffee, grapefruit sparkling water, with the occasional green tea in the afternoon when I get sweepy. Reading: Gobbled up Harry Potter and…

Making: Some crafty type things for a close friend’s baby shower. It’s like this…the crafts are basically just a convenient distraction from the CUTE SQUISHY BABY that will be here so soon!! I’m a lil excited. Cooking: I made an old summer standby last week- Pioneer Woman’s chicken salad with blueberries, corn, red onion, and feta. So good every time. Next week my brother is coming in town and we’re cooking dinner together for his birthday. He’s a bona fide chef, so I kind of feel like he’s giving me a cooking lesson for his birthday, but my mama didn’t raise no fool so…
