Catalog Living

Lindsey_CA

I was in search of something I had saved on my computer when I came across a pic I had saved many years ago. There is a website called Catalog Living that was started by a woman named Molly Erdman. She takes photos from catalogs and websites and puts hilarious captions on them. The fictional couple who live in her photos are Gary and Elaine. Here's the pic I saved, as a sample of what you'll see if you check out the website. And, she apparently has books you can purchase now. Funny holiday gift for folks with a sense of humor.

I used to follow that site quite a bit. Then it seemed to fizzle out, it went months without any update. I assumed that they had moved to Facebook and I quit checking it. I can remember sitting here one night in hysterics from some of the captions.

Gary and Elaine are back? Really? I loved the old blog, but I thought the author had stopped updating....off to find them again.

Thanks, Maire

It doesn't look like the blog is back. The most recent posts are 2017. But they are still funny!
