WC Sitzen, Bauhaus Installation

This will be a more visual post as I have hurt my thumb and am using voice recognition software to type my blog post. It’s new software and proving more difficult to use so I’d rather post pictures.

So imagine my delight when I went to buy a toilet seat yesterday and found a virtual art gallery in the hardware store.

Now I’ve never purchased a toilet seat before, so maybe this is not that odd. But a quick glance at Home Depot’s selection tells me this is more of a German thing. Or at least not an American thing.

Regardless there’s something amusing in imagining a hologram of the Statue of Liberty in someone’s bathroom. All I know is next time I head to OBI (the other big DIY shop in town), I’m bringing my digital SLR.

And so ladies and gentlemen, I present you with WC Sitzen, Bauhaus Installation.

Not blurry mind you. It’s a hologram.

Notice the price? 85 Euro? That’s more than $100. For a toilet seat. And that wasn’t the most expensive one, either.

Can you imagine if you posed for this? “Yes, it will be on all the finest toilet seats in Germany!”

After seeing all these, it makes the previous tenant’s choice of pink seem restrained. In case you’re wondering, here’s our selection:

There are some things I just can't assimilate to.

I hope you enjoyed my art installation coverage 😉 If you’re looking for a post of my writing, I did have two publish this week on other sites. You can read 5 Reasons to Embrace Jealousy or if you’re into something lighter, how about decorating with houseplants?

I know, right? Seriously ridiculous. My hubby was bummed for a minute we went with white. He also liked the semi truck. Ha!

The Eiffel Tower one just hurts when thinking about “sitting down.”

Hugs from here, Rebecca!
