Over the weekend I had family over and found myself with not enough matching drinking glasses for everyone. I hate when that happens! In the past couple of years all of my once extensive glass collection has dwindled down to a hodgepodge of threes and fives… mainly because my husband has taken on most of the dishwashing duties since the G-Man was born.
So I hurried thru Tuesday Morning yesterday, with the toddler in tow, and found some of these La Rochere glasses that I have entered pretty much every CSN sponsored giveaway in blogtown in the hopes that I’d win. What a deal you guys!
La Rochere is the oldest glass company in France, founded 17 years before Columbus set foot in the Americas! The French bee design is inspired by Napoleon’s official travel set, which is displayed in a Museum somewhere in France.
I found these beauties for $59.99 for a set of 12 (6 tall and 6 short) tumblers. You will find a set of 6 of the smaller ones at Amazon for $48.99 or at Ballard Designs a set of 4 of the larger ones for $45.00. Needless to say I bought the two sets they had available.
In the 15 minutes I spent in the store, I snapped a couple of pictures of other great finds…
These are Juliska look alike, but they “feel” just like the Juliska hand-blown glass. I have a feeling they were from the same manufacturer, but sold here under a different label since the price is just ridiculously low. $9.99 per glass, versus $45 per glass at the Juliska distributors.
They had 4 of these huge Oscar de La Renta lamps for $90 bucks each. I though of Averill from Odi et Amo and her search for a blue and white lamp.
The coloring in this picture does not do justice to these fab Foo Dogs. Beth from Chinoiserie Chic would approve.
I am sure that Kellie from Ada and Darcy would do something fabulous with these outside cushions.
My dear Yvonne from Stone Gable would do a fabulous tablescape vignette with these.
This one is for me, when the budget allows…
$200 on clearance!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
