Did you also grow up with those hideous quilted toaster covers that matched the microwave-oven cover that matched the hot-water-thermos cover and the rice-cooker cover? Thank God my grandmother didn't cover our couches with plastic like Nova Villa did in that 80's TV show of hers (was it Chicks to Chicks?).
Wouldn't it have been much prettier like this?
After all, the cover was to keep the dust away, not hide the appliance, right? And it's not like guests didn't know what was underneath with the cover that fit each appliance so perfectly. So why not put a beatiful print of the microwave on a white canvas cover?
Oh, and that cover with the dog printed on it just cracks me up! :)
