I thought I would struggle more with this theme, but I took this the day Tara at Stickyfingers announced this weeks Gallery theme
This is what my Irish mother-in-law calls a 'disheen' (I am not sure of the spelling)
It is ugly and can be found under foot, on shelves and in any available space left where no other toys reside. It comes from places like party bags and MacDonalds.
The item above is actually a pencil sharpener so more useful than most of these objects but this one illustrates the general ugliness of these things.
I seem to have millions of these little things clogging up my house and they are ugly, annoying and my children won't let me throw them away.
Don't tell them but I am secretly planning a midnight cull...Sshhhhh
