Yep, that's what I expected. I've seen them in store displays just placed in vases, which is pretty. If the website would let you choose which styles to order instead of telling you that you had to take luck of the draw basically, I would have gotten some just for decorative objects. They'd probably sell better as decoration than waterers anyway...like gazing balls. I have Christmas tree ornaments with similar types of blown glass designs, so that's what I was actually thinking of doing with them, making them ornaments. But Greg would tell me they're ugly.I bought one several years ago because I LOVE colored glass. Its decoration only! They don't work for crap. Once I even tried absolutely soaking the pot then sticking that thing in, and it drained all the water in a short time.
