I can't believe it's been a week since the IACP conference has ended. It feels like it was just yesterday I was at the conference meeting new people and chatting up with old friends. I had the opportunity to listen to some impressive panelists talk about food and its industry. I also attended the culinary expo, book and blog festival. I learned about tea pairing, animal butchery and cooked up some bacon goodness at the workshops. Of course there is no shortage of amazing food at a food conference, and so many generous sponsors provided delicious treats. Other than food, I was fueled by the much-needed caffeine. It carried me through the hectic schedule of the conference. I was especially looking forward to my daily visit to the illy's table for their delicious espressos and cappuccinos. I was thankful that illy was one of the sponsors, and provided the attendees with unlimited amount of delicious coffee to enjoy.

So when I was asked to do a giveaway on my blog, I responded with an enthusiastic yes! It may have been the caffeine talking, but I am happy to host a giveaway featuring these beautifully designed illy Art Collection Cups by Michael Lin.

I love the pink flowers. Aren't they beautiful?! Each saucer comes with a different flower pattern (above are some of the examples). This collection of six handle-less cappuccino cups and coordinated saucers is beautifully gift-boxed. They are also signed and numbered by Michael Lin. This could make a really nice Mother's Day present too...just saying. So even if you don't win, you can go to illy's website and purchase these gorgeous cups.
If you're not familiar with the artist, Michael Lin is internationally known for his painted walls and floors reproduced on a large scale traditional floral motifs inspired by Taiwanese textiles. He is an artist of a new global pop art inspired by daily life, his origins and family.
