frances houseman ate the couch.
she is the best, cutest, most wonderful little dog ever (as far as i am concerned). i wasn't even looking for her, she just happened to me. her original owner could no longer take care of her and i was at the right place at the right time, and now she is one of the best things that ever happened to me.

but sometimes, she is a bit bad. like yesterday. she ate the couch. actually, she ate the couch a few days back also, which means that the cushions were ripped on both sides. the fabric was very thin to begin with, seeing as how it came from a little vintage shop.
so now both sides were eaten and could not be sat upon without having lots and lots of orange foamy bits all over your bottom. so i set to work doing an emergency DIY cushion re-covering.
a few yards of old fabric and about one hour later, here it is.
now i just have to make about ten mismatched pillows, and it will be the perfect grandma couch!
