Artist Morgan Gesell has a knack for pointing out the absurd in charmingly crafty ways. We’ve featured some of her previous projects, such as her latch-hooked childhood cats, as well as her latch-hooked Mrs. Doubtfire, and who could forget her poignant ‘N Sync farewell wreath? Now, Gesell has set her irreverent sights on home decor with this wry series of thrift store paintings and photographs, which she’s adorned with pop culture quotes.

Utilizing snippets of rap songs, popular slang, and even dialogue from reality TV shows, Gessel breathes new life into these forgotten pictures with each witty letter she paints.

Maybe you’ve got a few pictures of your own that could use a little pop culture quote make over?
