So, a few weeks ago I'm cruising through my Facebook page and I left a comment on one of my daughter's (Amy Kikita) posts. I think she was complaining that she needed a late afternoon cafecito. (I think that's what it was, because she's always saying that in the late afternoon, but that's not important right now.)
My friend, Claudia (who happens to be an amazing photographer) then left a gorgeous photo on Amy's Kikita's Facebook wall. It was of an old school (read Cuban style) espresso maker and two tacitas (demi-tasse cups).
It was love at first sight.
I wrote to Claudia: "I need that cafecito print for my kitchen." (Notice the subtlety in my request. =D)
She wrote back: "I'll send one right out to you. What size would you like?"
Whoa! I felt like I had just performed a Jedi Mind Trick! I so badly wanted and Had. To. Have. That. Print. And poof! She just agreed to send it. You may call me Obi Wan KeDarby. ;-)
And then I had an idea. I asked her if I could maybe offer that print to my readers as a giveaway.
Claudia: "What a great idea." (Marta Skywalker here!)
How gorgeous is this?
It's 11 x 14 and it's as delicious in person as it looks in the photo.
So, let's do this!
For a chance to win this gorgeous Cafecito print, please leave a comment on this post and tell me:
