Sue along with her adorable granddaughter, Miss Sophie, recently had a giveaway and I was fortunate enough to win! If you are a regular reader of Sue's blog, Rue Mouffetard, you may remember the darling calendar starring Miss Sophie as movie heroes/heroines. The giveaway was a DVD of one of the movies portrayed by Sophie in the calendar. We chose "Dr. Zhivago", so I was expecting a padded envelope with the DVD. I was so surprised to get this huge box in the mail with all of these goodies in it for a great movie night at home.

Check this out! Boxes of candy, popcorn, hot chocolate mix with marshmallows, and, of course, the movie were enclosed

Plus, there were this popcorn salt shaker from Williams-Sonoma and two pairs of cuddly socks to keep my feet warm while watching the movie.

How great is all of that? Thanks Sue and Sophie! Please go by Rue-Mouffetard; Sue is always cooking up something good.

Thanks for stopping by,
