My New Trophy

Hello everyone!


Not too long ago, I was lucky enough to win a fantastic giveaway from Miss Mustard Seed!  It was for $100 worth of product from Antique Farmhouse.  Holy Guacamole!  That was like the perfect giveaway for me to win because I am such a fan of theirs!  So, I immediately began searching their website to see what was available for me to order.  I quickly found this trophy to my liking.


I ended up spending $80 total with shipping on this!  Ouch!  So, that still leaves me $20 to spend on something else.  I haven't yet decided, but I have until October to use it.  No problema!!  I will keep looking and see what catches my eye. 

For now, the trophy has landed in my dining room.  It adds a nice touch of silver to the room.


It would probably look better in a grouping with other trophies.  But for now, since I don't own any other trophies, this will have to do.


I'm looking forward to using it many different ways in the future.  It would look great with feathers in it or some greenery.  So many uses!  For now, it graces my side board and keeps my candles company.

My oldest son made a funny comment when I told him that I won a giveaway and bought this trophy.  He said, "So you won a trophy then".  Yeah, in a round-about way, I guess I did!  Ha!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ooooh, what a win, Kelly! That's another one that I get in trouble with. I would have whooped out loud to win $100.00 gift certificate. Love the look of the trophy.

Great win! I love old trophy's and would love to have a grouping of them. The cost keeps me away. But to win, makes it all worth it!

Great purchase. My FIL had all sorts of silver trophies from his horse racing days. When we emptied their house most of them went in the sale. I wish now I had kept a few. I love the shape of yours...something new to collect! Have a good Sunday!

Laura said...

There is nothing better than the start of a new collection and what is better than anything silver?

Thank you so much for coming by my blog.

I want a trophy just like that, same cool lettering too, but I want it to say trophy wife just to see who laughs when they see it on my mantel.
