Halloween Countdown #1: Nightmare toilets

Only three weeks until Halloween! To celebrate, I'm going to post pictures of utterly horrifying ephemera each weeknight between now and then as bonus Papergreat entries.

The posts won't go up until 9:30 p.m. EDT each day, so that impressionable children can be tucked away in bed first and shielded from the terrifying images.1

Tonight's nightmarish images are pair of garishly dressed-up toilets, courtesy of American Thread Co. Star Book No. 195: "Knit and Crochet with Aunt Lydia's Heavy Rug Yarn."2

1. Parents not residing in the Eastern Time Zone are on their own.
2. To see another horrifying bathroom, check out "Selections from the 1967 Top Value Stamps catalog."


  1. Oh, that zany Aunt Lydia :)

    My paternal grandmother was obsessed with bathroom accoutrements ... she would have loved these booklets.
