Ericast 153 - Paisley Owl Wallpaper

No, not "wallpaper" like the kind you put on the background of your computer desktop screen. We're talking about genuine "dead trees glued to house walls" here. Having sorted through my entire life in photographic form (and having successfully encapsulated it into 22 hard-to-find plastic shoeboxes that are now stacked in the basement in two piles each five feet tall), this gem is too good to pass up:

Feel free to click that picture and zoom in on the owls in all their 1970s glory. (Or, technically, their 1960s glory? The wallpaper was probably put up in 1971 or maybe 1972 so I suppose the design itself is from a year or two prior to that...)

I miss that house.

And, as I mention in the podcast, it's not like anyone ever sets out to decorate something as "weird". At the time, it seemed perfectly reasonable.

I wish I could find a photo of the bathroom...

Do you have any similar "tacky decorating memories"? Share them by calling 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) or e-mailing them to me (eric) at

Don't forget, too, that you can add in your comments about religion, war, Glenn Beck, the social gospel, Goodnight Moon, or any other form of internet hug.
