Hello blog friends all over the planet! It’s payback time for all the kindness and friendship you all have given me.  Design has always been my true passion. To have found a forum to express myself and meet so many lovely & talented people feels just amazing.

So, as a thank you, I have done a little shopping for Splendid Willow’s second giveaway.

For this giveaway I have purchased three lovely things for the home and you may soon be the lucky owner. Are you ready? You now have a chance to win one of the three following items:

1) Jonathan Adler’s Muse Blanc scented candle. Retails for approx $60.

The candle is set in a a porcelain vessel that glows as the candle burns. After the candle is gone, the vessel makes for a perfect flower vase. The candle is 3.5″ high.

2) Nate Berkus’ Hope Pillow. Retails for approx $49.95.

This pillow is part of Nate Berkus latest line of home furnishings for HSN. The elegant pillow is white with a bright metallic embroidery. Evoking a message of hope, this pillow emphasizes that your home is your haven. The cover has a hidden zipper.

3) 8 Thin German Glitter Peace Sign Ornaments (from Pottery Barn). Retails for approx $32. ($4 each).

These lovely ornaments with a meaningful message could be used not only for the upcoming Holidays – but all year around! (I am getting a bunch myself to give as little tokens for friends & family).


How do you take part of the giveaway? By simply adding a comment to this post and telling us which one out of these 3 items you would like in your own home and where you would place it (we love to peek into other people’s homes!).

The contest closes on Sunday November 8th at midnight PST. All comments/names will be put in a hat. And as usual my poor husband gets to randomly pick three winners. The winners will be announced on this blog and by email Monday morning November 9th.  (Yes, I will ship worldwide!) Note: only one entry per person 😉

Good Luck Friends! I can’t wait to announce the winners!

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!
