Okay, Susie had a great idea with this! Here goes.

First is the ugliest thing hanging in my house:

This is one of the lights that hangs on my wall o bricks fireplace. Ugh. We have a bonafide 70's rec room down there. The bar is solid brick. The walls are panelling. The floor is those terrazzo tiles. And the lighting fixtures are funky. Check out the homemade wood bracket! Somebody needs to tell this rec room that Alice does'nt live here anymore.

Number 2. My hair products.

I don't know what I am doing. I buy these flippy/sculpty/texture products, some of which I am sure are made of Flubber, in the hopes that I will have some fun hair. And in the end, it just kind of hangs there. It looks totally great when I get it cut. Then it is back to whateva.

Third, a material object I can't live without. Hmm. I am not a jewelry person. Mostly because I lose things. And losers like me can't keep stuff for very long so we try not to get too attached to it. I don't even have a diamond ring. Just a generic gold wedding band that I have lost and found four times. Once I lost it looking for Christmas trees outside of a garden centre. And went back and searched on my hands and knees for it. Didn't find it. So I bought a new one. Then, after Christmas, when we were taking the tree down, wasn't my old one in the tree stand water. Hey! So I took back the one I had bought. So I am not a jewlery personne. But one thing I do love very much is the quilt my quilty mom made for me a few years ago. We picked the fabric out together. It is loverly.

That quilt is beautiful - and the inscription made me want to cry!

And the ugly lamp. I don't think the lamp itself is that ugly. The 70's wood holder - I agree - Ugly. But I think the lamp is hip and retro in a good way.

It really was the great and powerful Kristine's idea! With a light fixture like that, I think you just have to go with the retro look for that room. That '70s Show!
I buy stuff from my hairdresser, and I can never make it do what she makes it do to my 'do.
Your quilt is just extraordinarily special. What a treasure.
