Collection Selection Linky - PLastic-Pretending-To-Be-Glass

This is a bit of a random collection, I know..
It's not a really collectible thing.. I just seem to collect it up!
This is a collection that I've just gathered in the last couple of years.
It's quite small..
And it's kind of daft..

But I've been meaning to photograph it because I wanted to see it together!

* SO PRETTY!

* Like stained glass windows.
These sundae bowls we had when we were kids. I pick them up when I see them, usually for 20c. I have  bought (thrifted of course!) 4 other sets that I gave to my siblings and friends who requested them..
(They are very easy to find!)

* Obviously, it's hard for the kids to break it
plus they feel posh with it on the table.
* KITSCH

At least some of it usually features on the party tables...

* It's cheap as chips. 


* CHEAP
* KITSCH
* FABULOUS
* HARD TO BREAK
* QUITE EASY TO FIND
=
My kind of collection!

I have a soft spot for these bowls too. I have half a dozen or more. I think they are super pretty, but light as a feather too. I'll be linking up tomorrow. Xx

I saw one of those bowls at the jumble sale on Saturday and immediately thought of you, Linda! Love all the different colours and shapes. xxx

I love those! I can't say that I ever see anything but the clear plastic. The colors are great. And they'd be great for displaying without worrying about kitties. Must look into this further.
