....and the winner is....MOI

Hey, everybody...
hope you are having a great week.
The weather here in West Texas is just beautiful....
coolness in the early morning hours..delightful temps during the day with
cooling again in the evenings.


I just LOVE hearing my doorbell ring, going to the door and there, in my porch swing, sits a PACKAGE...

OOO, I do love me some PACKAGE.

I was surprised to get something this large in the mail
UNTIL I remembered A WIN I had a few weeks back.
Oh, yes....our sweet friend, HONEY at 2805,
(she is the friend that sent me the link for the little tins I used
on the make-over of my thrifted CANDLE CHANDY (here).
had an awesome giveaway of a HANDMADE glass cheese tray and spreader.
AND, I WON......
and, I got to choose from several different styles and the artist
made it JUST FOR ME.
Isn't it just beautiful.....
I love it, HONEY.....and Mr. Sweet likes it, too.:)

The little spreader is adorable and I can't wait to use the pretty set.

maybe at our HOME FELLOWSHIP group....

OR....

I have BUNCO at my house in NOVEMBER and  this will be perfect to serve a good cheese.

AND...
at Thanksgiving, when all our family will be here.

Yes, this came at a perfect time of year.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, HONEY.
 Well....when I went to the grocery store, I saw this new
ALOUETTE BACON  CHEDDAR
spreadable cheese....
 bought it and came home and it went right on my beautiful new glass
CHEESE TRAY.
 This cheese is EXTRA good.
I mean, BACON CHEDDAR.....
Bacon Cheddar and Extra good work great together in a sentence.....:)
 I am pretty sure the cheese wouldn't be nearly as good if it were spread
with a REGULAR, OLE KNIFE....
but, put a PRETTY LITTLE SPREADER with it and it becomes MAGICAL.
When I used the spreader, my little finger was lifted, as it is when
I drink from a beautiful tea cup....:))
 "Here, HONEY.....
I made one just for you !"
