Topic: Annual Cup Tradition 2009 (5 msgs / 84 lines)
1) From: John A C Despres
Running behind here, but it's time to offer two more cups to the list.
I'll get pictures up as soon as I re-learn to navigate the SM Image Gallery
again.
Once again, the cups are designed by me each year as gifts for friends and
clients. They are limited in number and I will offer 1 each to 2 lucky
winners. The cups are made by Rita Sheilds and signed by both of us. They
are not for sale, so if anybody asks (someone usually does), the answer will
be no. They hold 6 ounces and are my favorite of all the cups I've offered
here.
Deadline will be Jan 4, 2010 at midnight for registration. Please reply
off-list to
johndespres at gmail dot com with "cup tradition" in the subject line.
Don't reply to the list. Be sure to include the address to which you'd like
your cup sent with your entry.
I will drop all the names into my vintage Kaffee Hag can and draw two names
and will send all cups shortly after.

Hi All, I am pretty much a full time lurker, but entered the annual cup tradition generously offered by John. I received his cup, and I am in awe of the amazing amount of talent that John has. It is so beautiful- Robins egg blue with incised "city roast beans" on the side. No wonder people keep trying to order his special cups. THANK YOU! I don't have the words to express how happy that cup makes me. Every time I look at it, I smile.  I am a little scared to use it because I am so clutzy, and I have already told my daughter & husband hands off. As soon as I can find the appropriate item to respond in kind with my own tradition, I will post to all. Thanks for all the wonderful imformation everyone on this list provides, and again thanks so much John!
