Win a Handmade Cup By Popular Åsa Lindström

I realize that many of my readers are on vacation, but let’s have some fun amongst us who are yet to hit the beach!

I have been collecting Åsa Lindström’s handmade cups for years. (See previous article here). I think they are absolutely stunning with their unexpected enamel motifs (inspired by old books and magazines) and real gold rims. Åsa Lindström’s imagery has been described as “a nostalgic back-heel with a focus on the future and it achieves a balance between laughter and purity of style”. In Sweden many use them to drink tea or coffee from. I prefer to line them up and just enjoy the artistic side of them, or to put pencils or flowers in them for my office or next to my bed.

YOU now have a chance to win this lovely cup by Åsa Lindström, which I bought last weekat Blås & Knåda in Stockholm!  (With the delighful motif of a bunch of stylish rowers from the 40s!) All you need to do is to add a public comment (note: not under my contact tab) to any of my individual posts on Splendid Willow this week. Your comment and name will be put in the “comment hat” and a winner will be picked. The contest ends on Friday July 3rd @ midnight west cost time. The winner will be notified immediately. Good Luck/Lycka till!

    I love these cups too and always admire them at your home. I should ask you to bring me home one but then one is not enough. Enjoy you visit! I can’t wait to go to Sweden.
    Cheers,

  • kiki says:

    Hej tjejen,

    Glad someone NOT from Sweden I hope won the cup, as we can get them when home, somehow!
    The rowers are especially interesting for me with 2 former rowing daughters in the family. I am going to get them as Xmas gifts, for them and I hope they do not see their MOM writing this as they know about your wonderful blog.
    PS: By the way, I do have 11 of her beautiful smaller shotcups or punchcups with platinum inside (@ $55-) in my shop Swedish Heirlooms, call 206 621 1002, if anyone is interested?
