Winning Is Fun!

Just wanted to take the time to thank the incredible women behind  the TGInteriors blog which you can see HERE!…I have loved getting to know them and truly consider them to be friends! I was so excited when I found out that I had won their fun "give away" from Novica! I had never heard of Novica before and thoroughly enjoyed cruising their website to see just what I would pick out! It finally arrived today!

Funny thing is…I won this right before Christmas and New Year's and I had just commented to my husband that I had never owned any champagne flutes! Go figure! I'm a huge china, silverware and glassware junkie and I didn't have champagne flutes?

Well, now I do! And I love them! I was also EXTREMELY impressed with their packaging! They came all the way from Mexico…not one of them was broken! I have things shipped to my shop every day and there is ALWAYS something broken! These were packed by a 'Master Packer' if there is such a thing!

I think these are simply stunning and fun all at the same time! I'm hoping for another 6 to make an even dozen! You never know!

I'm also hoping to pass along some of these remarkable packaging techniques to all of the vendors I will deal with next week at Market in Atlanta! This should be a required college course or something!

 No matter, now I want to celebrate New Year's Eve all over again! Maybe, we should just have that BCS Championship football party at our house on Monday night! Hmmm….not sure it would go over well in my household of Auburn fans but atleast I could use my new glasses!

Take care sweet friends! Enjoy these last few days of "vacation"! Atleast that is what it feels like to me…reality doesn't hit until Monday…Miller doesn't go back to Auburn until Tuesday…maybe reality shouldn't hit me until Wednesday or Thursday so I can re-coup from all of the fun filled activities we have experienced this last month of Miller's first college vacation! Can't even begin to tell you how glad I am he and Jim are hunting and they both have done quite well! I'll brag later! For now, good night!
I'm so glad to have something to post about again! Can't wait to be back to normal! I may just have to do a post on "How Stella Got Her Groove Back!"
(keep in mind I've never seen that movie so if it's nothing but yuck….I'm sorry! I do love the title though!)
Good night!
