I wanted a special glass- something that spoke to me ...

I looked and looked and looked-

---This is what I found---

I could only afford one- (not that it was terribly expensive, but I am on a budget!)---
And of course, I wanted to buy wine too :)

It's colorful and feels wonderful in the hand- and the "blue" in the middle has a special meaning for me.

When I brought it home, everyone said, "It's YOU!"

I thought so too :) (The label said "Cassablanca", which made it all the more perfect :)

I know it's such a fancy glass and should probbaly only be used on special occasions, but I intend to use it every day...even if I'm only drinking water out of it.

What "special" thing do you have stored away for a certain occasion? Is there anything you use on a daily basis to remind you that YOU are special?

I hope so, because you are worth it.

A special toast here to Roxanne, who made me feel treasured this week, and for Cosmo- because I read something at his blog which reminded me of a beautiful moment, and to the Skunk- he knows why :), and to a loved "annon" blogger who I won't name. Also, one day, I do hope Lady Lux, Helene, Foamy and I will all tilt our glasses in a toast together...NYD- you are invited too! Hugs :)

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

I like the glass a lot! Good idea!

How are things with your brother?

Why lovely Mayden, you are the special thing...

Skunkfeathers said...

Yes, indeed, what Cosmo said ;)

I am pleased to be a new-found friend, to you and Pixie. Next time I tip a glass, I'll tip it your way, gracious lady, and toast one of the most precious assets of the South.

A great New Year to you, from start to finish!

Helene- more soon, with a phone call :) Hugs friend, I can NEVER thank you enough for just "being there"- what a gift you are to me

Cosmo, :) My dear- you will always be terribly special to me : ) If we can toast wine glasses one day- I will be thrilled to my core...but you must know- I think of you every time I use my new glass-- you were the inspiration :)

Skunk- any time you want to travel south and have some good bbq, or a chilled glass of wine, or just a friend to watch a movie with- I'm here :) What a sweet man you are- and I thank you for finding me :) (or vice versa :) I pity all the wild women in the Eastern Block who fall in love with you :)

Makes my lucky underwear look pretty bad by comparison.

Nice glass and the fact it speaks to you is the really important thing. The wine inside is the frosting on the cake. Just remember one rule, life is to short to drink crappy wine - splurge a bit and treat yourself to the "good stuff."

chickory said...

it IS you! i think i recognize that wine too!

And how is the lovely wine-soaked Mayden on this fine day? Fresh and beautiful as ever I'd wager.
