This is my glass....

...and I love this glass. I travel with it, and given a choice I've been known to turn down (gasp!) a bourbon if I didn't have my bourbon glass.
The original set came from a jewelry store somewhere; maybe Texas and I haven't lived there for 15 years. After that, damn if the set didn't show up at TJMaxx at a GREATLY reduced price....halleleuja!

But then I got cute, and introduced it around. It's a lovely glass, y'all. It fits into your hand, all cupped and smooth and snug. It's shiny but not too cut or ornate Everyone I know bought this glass...I sold more of these than the Waterford rep. Did I mention? I do love this glass...my Marquis by Waterford.

Guess who doesn't carry it any more? Said TJMaxx. Gone. Done. Over with. So far, looking online, I haven't found it and I'm sure when I do it will be much more expensive than I'm used to. Pretty sure there are three left here. Three. Three is not good.

In the course of your life? I hope you find A Glass! It doesn't really have to be a glass...it could be a pen or a pair of boots or an amazing throw. But everyone needs a simple pleasure and damn if I don't love my glass.

Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.

I don't have a glass, because 99% of the time I will break a glass. But I do have an awesome acrylic cup which I love.

I have a small blue cobalt glass collection which is kept safely away from me inside a cupboard with glass panels. I like to look at it, and I can see it from where I presently sit. :)

As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I also add participating blogs to my feed reader.

So I’m just dropping by to let you know I’ve added your blog to my feedreader, I’m reading you loud and clear, I have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.

Looking forward to seeing your posts, and you’ll likely see me drop by again during November.

Happy NaBloPoMo to you!

I can't have nice things. I've broken the entire set of crystal - and stoneware - we got for our wedding 12 years ago. :o(
