Vintage Glassware

Last week was our 14th anniversary, so we went out to dinner.  We don't often eat dinner out (lunch, yes, dinner, no), so this was sort of a big deal.  We went to a little place called Paris Bakery & Cafe in Anchorage. We've eaten there before, and have never been disappointed. This dinner was no exception.  The owner/chef is really from Paris, so this is as authentic as you can get in Alaska.  The bakery items are to die for.

Anyhoo, we got to Anchorage a bit early and decided to go one of the few antique stores in Anchorage -- Lazy Dog Antiques downtown.  I really didn't expect to find anything because I wasn't looking for anything.  We were just killing time until dinner hour arrived. 

Wouldn't you know, I found an amazing set of glassware!  The set includes 4 tall glasses and 4 highball glasses.  They look very fancy and very Mad Men to me!


We decided to donate all of our plain, nothing special glasses to make room for these lovelies. Makes a drink of water seem like a very special activity!  Happy anniversary to us!

Happy Anniversary you two lovebirds. I have been wanting to try that restaurant for a long time. It is just not on any of my usual routes but I must make an effort to get there, everyone raves about the food and the pastries.
