  • I know stuff.
This is about what the bathroom looked like but the carpet was burgundy and the carpeting only went 3/4 of the way up the wall. http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/c4/17/f4/c417f4f0aa0bbf6aa4df88803afe240a.jpg

It was a rental so nothing I could do about it but shake my head.

 :o
Ha! I've never seen one where the carpet went up the wall as well as the outside of the tub.

I always associate it mentally with bathrooms which have one of  those knitted dolls as a toilet roll cozy...


Can I just tell all y'all that those dolls always totally freaked me out.  When I was really little, I couldn't go if one was "watching me".

And seriously, what's the point?  I mean, I wouldn't leave a naked roll of TP on the coffee table, but in the bathroom?  What do these people think people *do* in there?

Knit toilet paper cozies?  ;D
I searched for nothing on the Internet and got 175,000,000 hits.

The thought of having to pick up something porous and difficult to wash that other people pick up every time they run out of paper mid 'visit' grosses even me out.

(Also, I am a little creeped out in general by old-fashioned dolls, especially as I get further from my own doll-loving years. I will avoid looking at or touching them in almost any context.)

There are worse things than those toilet paper cozies.

Having one of those dolls show up wearing a birthday cake as her skirt and a strapless icing corset top....

Seriously - those freaked me out worse than the toilet paper cozies...
Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I say more?

Those dolls would suit this bathroom perfectly: http://www.wimoveis.com.br/imovel/aluguel-apartamento-brasilia-df-3-quartos-sqn-304-bloco-d-1140286 Now, what would match that orange kitchen?

I am looking for an apartment and I have plenty of fodder to revive the real estate thread, believe me. Including the person who turned a balcony into a closet.

I had one of those Dolly Varden cakes for my 9th? birthday. A friend of the family made it for me as a surprise. Absolutely loved that cake (helped that the cake bit was chocolate). Still gives me the warm fuzzies whenever I remember it.  :)

Did you think I was kidding?

Please note - I do not kid about cake. 

Although the first time I saw one of those dolls...I was in third grade and thinking about making an exception...it didn't LOOK like cake....

Combine Barbie with a toilet paper cozy and you get this:

I had one of those cakes too, for my 8th birthday. My mum made it, with pink icing.

All of a sudden, I want one.  Please be patient, I'm sure I'll get over it.   ;)
