  8. Alice says:

    I would love to win this wonderful tray! I am a paper designer, living in the UK. I also believe in local productions and everything handmade. Winterbird combines style and craft – I love the black & white; together with some yellow lemons it will bring sunshine to everyones house! Great pictures and great products. I would cherish this tray very much & it would be great in my white minimalistic house. Thanks for the post Elisabeth!

  9. Frida says:

    Jag vill vinna eftersom jag nyligen gått ner till halvtid på mitt dayjob och därför ofta har all tid i världen att äta långa, goda frukostar i sängen. Enda problemet är att jag måste springa fram och tillbaka mellan sängen och köket med alla grejer som ska ätas och dricka. Och att jag sen får ställa ut maten på diverse pallar och böcker jag finner till hands. En snygg bricka skulle ju vara underlätta! Och göra långfrukosten än mer njutfull!

  10. Angela Z. says:

    Without any doubt: The tray looks really nice (and I am so in love with the elephant). But also I totally support the collaboration with locals, making things by hand instead of mass production: This, after all, makes the products unique – and I want the tray (‘:

  36. Catherine says:

    Hi Sara and Fine Little Day! Spring time has arrived in Switzerland and the expatriated French Canadian in me allready enjoys piknik in the park, supper in the garden, and tea party on the balcony! But the only thing missing is this amazingly designed tray!

    Have a good day!

    I would like to win this tray because I really love the design. I made a triangle tray myself, but the paint of the triangles has run out. Now we are using this messed up tray, but it doesn’t make you happy. A new triangle tray would make my day!

  63. Jane says:

    This tray is so beautiful and would make a much-loved addition to my home. Like lots of people I lead a busy life, always running around and constantly working, and I often don’t make enough time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like relaxing with a cup of tea, making a nice meal or having friends round more. Beautiful renderings of everyday objects like the tray – which might otherwise get overlooked in all the rushing around – are a good reminder to really savour the little moments!

    The blog, the giveaway and the shop are great! With love from Edinburgh : )
