Truly?!? I've never seen such a thing. All that cold porcelain would be just what's needed to enforce Mom's admonition "Don't ever sit on a public toilet seat!"

The last rental house I lives in had the split toilet seats in every bathroom. I am a person who immediately changes out the toilet seats, on my own dime, anyplace I live in (with permission if not "mine", never been an issue). HATE the split front toilet seat. Also hate wooden toilet seats. But fabric... I think my grandmothers both had them. And they grossed me out even as a child.

Suddenly liking the idea of only white towels and throw rugs that can be bleached...

I don't think germs even were known by the general public until around the fifties and even then not everyone actually believed in them.

If you add three gold ceramic goldfish each with several separate ceramic gold bubbles coming out of their mouths on the wall of that pink bathroom it'd be a dead ringer for my grandma's bathroom. Small kid time, her bathroom was a two hole outhouse out behind the barn, so she was really happy with her fancy bathroom with everything covered with ruffly fabric with bows on it. She also adored microwaves and thought they were better than sliced bread. Which was also a new and improved item that appeared in her lifetime.

My mom had the Barbie dolls with huge skirt dresses to cover up the spare toilet paper roll parked on the back of the toilet. She had the shag rug but didn't always manage the shag seat cover. At a friend's house once, I saw a seat cover that covered the seat and not the lid. It was a zebra print or some such? Soft and fuzzy, anyway.

J.C. Penney was never really a style leader. They were one up from K-Mart and two steps up from Walmart, but they weren't anywhere we really wanted to get our school clothes from if we could help it. Same with their housewares.

Although my friend still has one of those under counter Rubbermaid pull out bins like in the J.C. Penny advertisement and it's really handy. I wouldn't mind one of those, myself. And it would be a hoot to get some different colored bath fixtures, those different colors of toilets, sinks and tubs. White gets so boring, and I don't see 'white' or 'cream' as much of a choice.

Good eye. I was fixated on the material and the color...............couldn't even get to the rest. And I think it likely is a doll house but geez, I would never put that tile/linoleum and that pink material in the same place ....or in any place actually. There should be laws against this sort of taste....I shall write my congressman today.

On another topic, I bet when you are a guest in someone's house, you notice if the trim is properly caulked, the wall paper print matches and the tiles professionally laid. I do and I marvel at the lack of craftsmanship..........................

What a great idea! My coworker, a brand new employee, is a very outgoing woman, and she has been hounding the entire office to dress up for Halloween. Her chosen theme for us is "Flapper of the 1920s." A couple of us, myself included, have no interest in wearing a costume. Dressing up the office toilet with this monstrosity would be a great substitute and would satisfy her I'm sure
