Here are my final entries for Chelle's Ugly Contest. First off I had to go out in the den and get this beast. Have you ever heard of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas? Well I'm pretty sure this lamp was a prop in that movie. If it wasn't, it should have been. Notice the beautiful plastic covering on that behemoth of a lampshade. The yellowed tape holding together a tear in it. Hideola at its best. And you can't tell so much here but this lamp is enormous, adding to its ugly charm.
Here's a close-up:
Next up, two torsos making out. It speaks for itself. If you've ever seen those little porch decorations of creepy looking kids- these two are their parents.
And according to the rules that would finish up my three entries (My first one can be seen in the previous post). But she did add that more could be added at her discretion. So here are my potential extra entries, depending on whether she finds them hideous enough or not.
Potential extra entry #1: Dream Pet Octopus. She was a crane machine prize.
Potential extra entry #2: The fake wood panel and gold doorbell cover in our hallway. It's been here since the 1970s obviously. See the loving details of dust and cobweb. Yeah. I haven't gotten around to ripping this foul thing down yet. (Or painting our walls something other than dingy white. We've been here two years. That's bad.)
Potential extra entry #3 is a proud canine statue. The wallpaper adds a little flair to this display, no?
Potential extra entry #4: Then there's this fine piece of jewelry I've had for years. It's too hideous to throw away. I had trouble getting a good picture of it, but you can see it says "I Got Cents." The best part is that it has a single penny in the center, so really it doesn't have cents. It has one damn penny, which is at least three times what this bracelet is worth. Cheap, ugly AND bad at math. Timeless. I like to wear it with Chanel no. 5 a tasteful couture piece.
Here's a closer picture so you appreciate the cheap tackiness.
So, that wraps up my entries for the contest. I wish I could have found some of my finer pieces of hideosity, but alas. Wish me luck.
(And Michelle- PICK ME!)
