Swanky Swigs

When we visited our  Grandma W., we always drank out of aluminum glasses (not really “glass”es, if they aren’t glass are they?)  Well, I guess they were tumblers (you can still get them..just google Aluminum Tumblers)

To be honest, they hurt my teeth (I had a lot of fillings) but they were so colorful, and it’s something I always associated with my Grandma W.

When the grand-kids started coming (our first was born three weeks before numbers 2 and 3 – twins of course), I purchased some darling glasses that reminded me a bit of my other Grandma. I just love these, and the kids love picking out their favorites. With nine grand-kids, I had to do a bit of bargaining on e-bay, but I have more than a dozen now, so I think I’m okay for the moment ….

    HI, I would love to trade you a pink pig and a green camel of a pink elephant and a blue monkey glass. I can’t find these other two anywhere. Thanks.

    Lynne which ones do you need? If I have duplicates I’ll certainly trade. I’ll be away from home for a couple more weeks, but then I’ll know what I have for sure. In the meantime, it’s nice to know there are other swanky swig lovers out there!
