These gorgeous vintage drinking glasses were a Christmas gift to me from my mom. Love them!! A cute story goes along with this.
The last time were were in California together, we went to a peddlers sale. A lady at the sale was selling these. I loved them from the moment I saw them but I wasn't shopping for "me" I was shopping for things for our shop. As the day went on with all the buying we did, I kept thinking about those glasses, maybe she still had them? I walked back to her booth and yep, they were gone, I felt a pit in my stomach, I really wanted those glasses and imagined how cute they would look sitting on my kitchen counter. Plus the carrier for the glasses is all rusty and crusty with chippy paint and you all know how much I love that combination!
It was much to my surprise on Christmas Eve when we were all at my mom's house to celebrate Christmas when I opened this present. I was so shocked to see these and sooo very happy!! You see I learned something about my mom, she can be very sneaky and that's a good thing, don't ya think? My mom knew how much I wanted them so she went back to the booth (without me knowing) and told that seller she was buying them and to wrap them up and she would come back for them. My mom put them at the bottom of one her bags she was carrying and carried them to the car and I had no idea she had them.
We all had a good laugh as we shared the story about these drinking glasses with the rest of the family. And yes, they look perfect sitting on my kitchen counter!
