I bought more than one ticket this time because I like more than one prize.
Unlike the time I told everyone how much I wanted to win the apron, this time I won't let on what I hope to win...but I hope I don't spill any coffee from my mug onto my new (hopefully blue size XL)T-shirt while admiring my new annuals and perusing the items which may or may not be in a meadow in America. Nope, I am keeping mum on the subject.

So very true -- the time I won, I had only purchased one ticket.

Today, I bought 5. And I was so excited to see the mugs as a prize (I need one more to round out my set -- no, I really need 4 more so I have one for each day of the week Hilarious! ) ANYWAY... it wasn't until AFTER I bought my tickets that I noticed there were two prizes listed in front of the mugs.

Those mugs are rare and highly sought after! I don't like selling them because they require so much extra packaging to keep them safe in transit. Plus we don't have a whole pile of them anymore, having sold most of them a couple years ago. So, these are getting more and more valuable all the time. Big Grin

When I first saw the photo I thought I was looking at ATP flower pots - oh, how cute - but once I read the words and realized they were mugs Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

A mug is a beautiful thing. Useful for drinking one's favorite beverage, once the handle breaks it can help root cuttings Thumbs up on the window sill, later in life once it develops a crack and can no longer hold water it can still hold pens/pencils and finally it can be a useful tool for emotional release Grumbling if flung hard enough to smash against a hard surface. *Blush*

Oh, guess I might need to buy more tickets.

I'm getting in on this! I never buy raffle tickets, or gamble as I have the WORST luck ever! But I want me some mugs so I thought I would turn a new leaf for 2014 and get lucky! Move over and watch out for Beginner's Luck! Thumbs up

I once entered a contest (recipes with Perrier water); the first prize was a trip to Paris, France.
The second prize was an Oster blender. And I won! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

The trip to Paris was only for one week so I am happy that my Oster blender lasted over 11 years. You can't always win what you want; sometimes you win what you need.

Amen, @Greene, but those mugs are so useful, as you pointed out -- multi-purpose!
