Quickie Crafting

I have this cute little set of picture frame bookends. I've had them for years. And for years, the picture frame area has held this stunning little drawing of Edgar Allan Poe. And tiny text that says "your 3.5"x5" photo here". Oops. 

When I organized my cookbooks over Labor day, I stuck one half of the bookend set up on the shelf to hold up our collection, and Poe peered down at me, and everything was fine and dandy.

However. I recently I saw this super cute print on Pinterest, and hunted down the downloadable version  through a series of clicks (love ya, internet). I think it's a good message for the kitchen...things don't always go right while you're in the kitchen, and sometimes you just have to go with the flow. You know? You know.

Anyway, I decided to print it out on photo paper and stick it in the frame. The ratios weren't quite right, so it's not perfectly centered in the frame, but I made it work well enough (it's not quite as crooked in real life as it is in the photo). And it's a nice reminder to stay flexible in the kitchen.



Cute, no? 


  1. Love it.

    And this is a great reminder for me. I actually debated the merits of running away from home vs. cooking dinner last week. I chose my family ultimately, but it was not an easy decision.

  2. Ah yes, it's always a tricky decision. I've been quite in the mood for cooking dinner lately, but also wanting to run away. And by run away I mean curl up on the couch with a blanket and TLC exploitation.

  3. Precious. Love it. We need to do cuter things with our kitchen.

  4. Kitchens cry out for cuteness, no? If ours had more wall space, I'd be hanging pictures of food everywhere. Or maybe vintage cheese posters or something. Cheese.

  5. You are all crafty'n'stuff! Also, I love this.
