a giveaway (and a lady called Nanny Still)

Time for a giveaway!

Any reason is a good reason, but I say let's celebrate the first Idle Needle post that was published exactly 8 months ago...

In that first post I showed off some thrifted vintage stickers which, by a loop-the-loop way, pretty much birthed the idea for this particular giveaway. Ha, how the plot thickens...!

So, those stickers. They are for your jars and freezer containers and were printed by Lindel Helsinki on Avery labels. The illustrations are 70s through and through - just look at that free, sweeping line and those colourways! They are called Hetiketti, which is a play on words in Finnish, meaning instant stickers. And they are a bit special too, because they were designed by Nanny Still.

But who is this lady called Nanny Still? At the time of finding those first labels, I was totally ignorant of Nanny Still's name and her influence in Finnish glass design. Slowly I have been discovering her fame, falling in love with her iconic pieces. But, because I can't really afford glass designed by her, I have been picking up the stickers instead. Which - needless to say - are much more accessible for a gal on a tiny budget.

Having collected a nice array of Nanny Still's Hetiketti, I'd like to offer a set to a lucky reader via this giveaway.

The giveaway

The giveaway is open internationally and will run for 10 days. To enter the giveaway, you need to be a follower of Idle Needle, then if you want you can earn extra entries on top of that. Enter via the rafflecopter widget below.

There will be one winner who will receive a set of 24 stickers - one of each design that I have collected. These glossy stickers are designed to stick on glass and plastic containers, but I have been using them also as address labels on letters...

Once the winner is announced, he or she has 48 hours to respond - if no response, a new winner will be chosen. Entries will be checked so please play fair! Good luck!
