Gracie here again, delighted to post an encore to the Pfaltzgraff contest-winner of service for eight in the beautiful Pistoulet pattern designed by Jana Kolpen and used daily here in the Red Kitchen!

Congratulations (and also pats on the back) go to Kim G, who entered the Pfaltzgraff contest not for herself but rather on the behalf of another family, whose home burned down in a recent fire. The folks at Pfaltzgraff, and its parent company, Lifetime Brands, Inc., were so moved by Kim’s entry that they have decided to send an identical 40-piece, service-for-eight Pistoulet dining set to this North Carolina family!

It is in the face of staggering loss that the importance of life’s simplest blessings, such as sharing a meal with loved ones, becomes truly illuminated. I’m charmed to learn that the folks at Pfaltzgraff, as well as the guests of the Red Kitchen, feel the same way.

Those familiar with Jana Kolpen’s illustrated books will agree that this truly is the “Spirit of Pistoulet.” (Visit The Spirit of Pistoulet on Face Book!)

I love it.  I feel honored that the Red Kitchen can serve as a conduit for such compassion from caring, conscientous businesses like Pfaltzgraff.

Congrats again to Bev, our original PFZ contest winner, and now also to Kim G and her friends/neighbors as well! Enjoy your lovely new china, and dine in good health! Cheers!


P.S.–Bev B reports that she is thoroughly enjoying her new china set and is already poking around on Pfaltzgraff.com to make a wish list of serving pieces to accompany her new dishes. Hooray for Pistoulet!

    Kudos to Pfaltzgraff! And to Kim G for a selfless gift of her own; thinking of someone else in their time of need.
