100!!!!! And a giveaway:-)

This is my 100th post!! I can't believe I've reached that magic number. I must admit I never thought I'd become a blogger, but as it occurred to me how many wonderful like- minded people that were out there, I threw myself into the blogosphere. The sunny side of it really has been meeting all you lovely people who share my passion for vintage pottery. It's been very educational too, I've learned a lot!

I've decided to celebrate my little anniversary with a giveaway!! I've been going on so much lately about Figgjo and Stavangerflint, and what could be more fitting than giving away a small Stavangerflint treasure? 

The treasure in question is a lovely small hand painted souvenir plate from the 60s measuring 12,5 cm across. It's unsigned, but I know for sure it's decorated by Inger Waage. Do you know how to identify a souvenir plate painted by Waage? See the birds, the leaves that look like little trees and the type? They're sure signs!







The motifs are small scenes from Trondheim, Norway's third biggest city. Situated by the Trondheim fjord in the middle of Norway (right below where it gets narrower going north:-) Trondheim is the home of Norway's largest cathedral, shown right behind the rose in the center.

So what do you do to enter? Nothing more than become a follower by clicking the follow buttons to the right, Bloglovin and Google Friend Connect, if you're not already a follower! Be sure to leave a comment telling me you want to enter. The draw will take place two weeks from now, on august 25th, at 12 noon Central European Time. Good luck!!

Ps. I'm on Instagram now, I finally caved in for the pressure by certain members of my near family:-)
