PHOTO HUNTERS #15 -- PLASTIC


PHOTO HUNTERS HOME
I have one simple and one unique PLASTIC entry for this week. I was hoping to find a big plastic thing like the kid the BIG BOY restaurant used to have but now that I am looking, there is nothing. I was pretty busy this week so maybe I didn’t look hard enough. . . So I have to be satisfied with these:
These are cinnamon ornament gingerbread men wrappped in PLASTIC! Ü

This one is going to be an antique one day. Do you remember when Dairy Queen always had these spoons that looked like an ice cream cone at the tip? Now a days, they are just boring red, plain, plastic spoons. I don’t know what reason I saved this one for -- maybe it was because I wrote an ICE CREAM unit for teaching about the history of ice cream to elementary kids when I was in college. . .

Oops! I lied -- found another “plastic” photo when looking for something else. This is a Xmas ornament that I "made" at a freebie workshop at Craft Warehouse.
