Enter to #win a 4pc Coffee Mug Set from Susquehanna Glass

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own. Click on any picture to see one place where the item can be purchased, but know too that these are sold in many places and sites online...just search Susquehanna Glass to get going.
Is there such a thing as Dragonfly Season? I should research it a bit because I don't really know, but it sure does seem like dragonfly season around here. Everywhere we go we see them, and if we venture out to the park, or take a walk in the woods, they seem to be all over the place!! We took a walk to the pond the other day and had a dragonfly follow us the whole way there. It was fun to keep spotting him (it was very unique looking, so we knew it was the same one). Fun, right? :)

So...when I came across this beautiful 4-pk. of solid glass coffee mugs from Susquehanna, with a dragonfly etched on the front, it was love at first sight. :)

Susquehanna Glass is all around you! Take a look the next time you're out shopping, and chances are high that if you're looking at glassware, Susquehanna might be there too! They make all kinds of glass items, including ornaments, pitchers, plates, etc., and most any of their items would make a great gift for the upcoming holidays (and beyond). I'll show you some examples, and you can judge the authenticity of that statement for yourself. :)


For mom (Mother's Day) this Butterflies 18 oz. Travel Bottle is pretty great. With the weather getting hot, it's the perfect time too, to stock up on these. Plus, water just tastes better when it's in glass, don't you think ? Especially true if you add ice.


For Grandma (yep, the grandmas in our family are given special treatment on Mother's Day), these Footed Coffee Mugs from Susquehanna Glass would be great for specialty drinks...you know the kind that call for whipped cream and a cherry. :) They're elegant and definitely great for using when company is over.


For Dad (Father's Day), this personalized keepsake plate would be awesome! Great for so many different uses, or just to put on display.


For Grandpa (yep, the grandpas in our family get recognized on Father's Day), this 2pc. Clipper Ship 32 oz. Night Bottle is so nice! I think this would look fantastic on the endtables next to the bed at night!


A perfect housewarming gift could be this beautifully made Susquehanna Glass Sonoma Pattern 64-ounce Round Pitcher. I know I'd love to have it in my kitchen, anad the grapes remind me of Italy (yes, I know Sonoma is in California, but they remind me of Italy just the same). :)
Or you know what...you could buy Susquehanna Glassware, just because. I love this 4pc. set, and think it would be most excellent for summer lemon or limeade. The dandelion is my fave. Who can see one and not think of joyously blowing those around a field, or in the grass, during your childhood?

Built upon a tradition of pride in craftmanship and service, Susquehanna Glass has long been in the business of making things personal. In 1910, Albert Roye installed a glass cutting machine in a small shed behind his house and opened the susquehanna Glass Factory. Two years later, Albert's brother, Walter, joined the business. The operation grew, eventually moving to its current location in Columbia, Pennsylvania, a stone's throw from the original shed where it began.

While hand-cutting glassware was the driving force behind the early years of the company, the development of new methods to decorate glassware eventually emerged, allowing the company to expand. Sand etching, color screening, laser etching and rotary engraving are all decorating processes currently offered by Susquehanna Galss. The selection of media has simulataneously expanded to include acrylic, metal, leather, flatware, wood and more.

These beautiful Susquehanna Glass items (and more) are sold in stores everywhere, and online (such as at Amazon and Zulilly). :)

Take a look around the website to learn more about the company and their products. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.


One lucky winner gets a set of dragonfly coffee mugs to call their own! US entrants only.
