Tuesday's Tip

Good Morning, Y'all! Have you ever broken the glass in a picture frame? Unfortunately, it happens at Mama Henley's house more than it should. Just last week a pillow flew across the room and broke a frame. If you take your frame to a framing store, it will likely cost you a good bit to have a new piece of glass cut. However, Mama Henley has learned a good trick. Simply go to your local Dollar Store and buy a frame with glass that is the same size that you need. You can throw away the frame and use THAT piece of glass to replace the one you broke! Brilliant, isn't it?! You will replace the glass for just $1! Enjoy your Tuesday!

Why did I not think of that? I just threw away two frames because of the broken glass. It's always the simple solutions that are the most fabulous! Thanks for this tip.
