Welcome to my_ugly_crap, an offshoot community of ugly_crap made for the purpose of showing off all that nasty stuff we have around our houses for some reason. I thought I would get the ball rolling with some ugly crap from my own home.


Here is the dress my mother bought for me to sing in with my choir. Note the sparkly swirls of doom and the way the waistline looks like a sack of potatoes. Very flattering for an 80-year-old with no shape, I'm sure, but not really my style. I can't get rid of it, though. It would hurt her feelings.




A curio box lovingly decorated by a kindergartener mental patient friend of mine. I am especially fond of the tiny beads that are constantly coming unglued and littering my floor.


A small sample of the stuff I was able to find on short notice. I'm sure there will be more forthcoming.

I think the box is cute if a friend made it. I wouldn't exactly buy it though.

Oh and the dress is repulsive :) I'll have a look around my house tomorrow!

OT, but you misspelled "kitsch" in the userinfo.

LOL and congratulations at your new community. I'll grab my camera and pull out some of my own fug for others to point and laugh.

Fixed, and thanks for the heads up. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Yeah if a friend made the box, I would more than likely find it cute. But hide it away unless they are coming over.

the dress is scary.

It is so hard to get rid of crappy stuff that friends make or give us. I had a goodwill box for weeks because I kept taking stuff out, because some of the stuff were gifts from friends. The guilt was staggering.

Ah, you said the magical word with the dress: choir. Our choir dresses sucked, and I have yet to see a choir dress I like. Apparently, people think choir and equate it with ugly black dresses.

We are allowed to wear any black, full-length, long-sleeved dress. I actually already have two that fit the bill. I'm not sure why she thought I needed that horrific thing.

Because something in her brain knew you needed an ugly black dress or you just wouldn't fit in. :p

I refuse to keep anything my mom biys for me. Last Christmas is was a polar fleece VEST with APPLIQUED MUGS on it.

Because, you know, I like tea.

Anyway. Question? I bought an ugly shirt and posted to thrift_horror. Can I cross-post? (It was a month ago methinks, and I still have it.)

I *knopw*. I'm kinda sad I didn't get a picture. It was horrific.

Christmas morning is such a FUN TIME when I get to open her presents. Once I got a calendar - that was two years out of date.

Please do cross post. As long as you think it's ugly, and it's something you own or once owned, it's fine. :)
