Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!!

In March, I did something I never do.  I entered a giveaway on Facebook.

Part of the reasons I never enter is because I have trust issues and usually it requires you to be American.

Anyway, a friend on Facebook shared a company's page and I instantly fell in love with the product.  The company is named Old Town Glassworks, and they are based out of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.  They create both beautiful and functional items out of recycled bottles.

The work is stunning and the patterns etched in the glass are all northern themes, which call to my soul.

They were having a giveaway for 2 of their glasses and all you had to do was comment and they would ship them anywhere to the winner.  For the first time, I took a leap of faith and entered.  I felt they would be a perfect addition to my weight loss journey and provide me with the perfect water know, the one that makes you WANT to drink water!

Anyway, the following week, I was scrolling through the newsfeed of my Facebook account and low and behold...there is my name, claiming I am the winner!  I had to do a double take, because I was still all blurry eyed from just stumbling out of bed.  It was true!  I won and I could not have been more excited.  It was announced on a Monday and it was the perfect start to a week.

Wanna see them?

The picture is from their Facebook page.  Please make sure you head on over and "like" them.  They have done more giveaways since and I suspect there will be more, so you never know, you could win your own set.

I have since received these glasses and they are even more beautiful in person.  They still have the feel of holding a bottle, with the original stamping to make it unique.  They are comfortably heavy and I can tell they are going to hold up for quite some time.  Plus, they are even dishwasher safe!  I have yet to let anyone else in my house use them and make sure I put them up on a high shelf so the kids can't reach them.  They are too new for me to not be completely devastated if they got broken.

They have a wonderful online store and their items, including vases, wine glasses and bowls would make wonderful wedding gifts!  Or any other kind of I need something for me, kinda gift!

My non scale victory is that I am a WINNER!!
