I won, I won!

A couple of months ago, I, (actually DH) guessed what Michelle’s (from Just Simple Joys) husband, Louie was fixing and we won a gift card to Applebee’s (sorry for the delayed thank you, Michelle – the meal was yummy!)

and just the other day…

the UPS truck pulled in our driveway and DH says to me “what did you order now?”.  Well, for once I could truthfully say that I didn’t order anything!  I met the driver at the door, saw who the package was from and remembered I had won something, a major award! 

Let me just say, I rarely, if at all, win anything so this truly is a thrill!

And no I didn’t win one of these – no “glow of electric sex” for me, no sirree!


or any of this although that would have been nice too!


but an adorable set of French (actually made in France and not in China like everything else these days) la Rouchere Historic Bee glassware from a drawing over on Chronicles of a Country Girl’s blog.  Did you know that this design, the French Bee, was originally chosen for Napoleon’s coronation and was displayed on his coat of arms?  and that la Rouchere is the oldest glass factory in Paris?  It dates back to 1475! 

It’s amazing what one can learn from glassware, isn’t it?


Aren’t these glasses fun?   Not that I have a propensity towards glassware and dishes or anything like that at all! 


Thank you Kathleen & Michelle!

  5. Love the glasses! I have a whole set : )

  6. Beautiful! I recently saw on The Farmer's Wife a dish, can't remember the name, where you dip fresh strawberries in sour cream and then in brown sugar. Those would be perfect to hold the individual brown sugars! Think double dipping. :) blessings, marlene
