Coffee Lover’s dream

Remember I mentioned winning a coffee basket prize at the social we attended? Well, we picked it up on Sunday (we were walking home & it was too heavy to carry that distance, so friends brought it home with them) and we opened it up. Wow! What a lot of stuff was crammed into that basket! The basket is 11″x16″ and the cardboard backing was 22″high!

As we attempted to carry it to the car, some of the stuff just burst through the cello wrap (the stuff in front) and we had to bring it home separately. The list of items to be found inside concluded with ‘Over $5oo value’ and I can believe it!

There were 35 items listed including a hot chocolate maker (complete with mini-marshmallows), an electric milk frother, a coffee grinder, a whipped cream maker (including 20 cartridges), a hand whisk, 2 cappuccino mugs, 2 humongous (double-cup) black mugs, 3 travel mugs (including one with a swirly thing inside for mixing), 2 candles (one even coffee-scented) and tons of coffee in bean form and instant, as well as hot chocolate mixes. Here are some pictures of the stuff we won:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love these two mugs that came with their own spoons. 🙂

3 travel mugs, a ceramic Starbucks mug & a coffee grinder

Pretty good haul, wouldn’t you say! We’re not usually this lucky. We should have bought a lottery ticket! lol

What are some things YOU’ve won in the past?
