When it came up in conversation during one of our team outings, I wasn't sure we were talking this century. As far as I'm concerned, they're dead as a dodo. But then, from the other end of the table came a humble, "what are toilet cozies?"

What we were talking about of course are the terry toilet seat shams and their matching rugs -- the ones that hug the pedestal of the toilet -- as well as anything to dress up an idle toilet paper roll and/or the toilet paper roll thingamabobber. The fact that someone on the HGTV.ca team had no idea what they were didn't point to her ignorance, but rather to the fact that they're so passe, they could be made cool again!
So I took it to the street. Surprisingly, I wasn't completely wrong, but not completely right either as most do find them appalling. What do you say, is there anyway to make toilet cozies passable? (One such example is this Hello Kitty set above. Kind of cute?)
