Personalised lamp giveaway


I need to make some new personalised lamps to take as samples to the British Craft Trade Fair. 

I don't want to use fictional names and dates because I'd like them to have homes to go to after the show. 

Who would you like one for? I have four to give away. One will be a Tree of Life like this picture with a name and a date, one will have Moons and Stars, one will have Dandelion Clocks and one will be  a Wedding Lamp with the couples names on and a wedding/anniversary date.

Please leave a comment below with the name and a date and which design you fancy. I'll choose my favourites next week and make them in time to take to the show.

After the show I'll send them to you.

Sound good?

Closing date Monday 25th March.

I love the Tree of Life, and if I win, the text would be Josephine (or Josie) 10th April 2011, for my daughter.
Fingers crossed!!
Tatiana

Steph said...

Ok, so mine would be the Tree of Life for Kira 19 March 2007. thanks :0)

Tom said...

SUch a talent wonderful lamps Hannah reminds me of the old hurricane tin punch lamps. I really like the "Tree of Life" Thanks

Naomi Jane said...

I love your lights! My chosen one would be a moon and stars one (with a bit of sea along the bottom!) and would say The Sea The Sea! after my favourite poem. Maybe in small: I must go down the seas again. Which is really just a cheeky way of saying would you ever consider designing some nautical lights! :)

frootz said...

hello there, fellow northerner :o) i have just followed a link from a friend and am so glad i have; i <3 your work xx i'm also excited by the competition as i don't have anything personalised :o( My name is Carron and i'll be 50 on xmas day - so i guess the dandelions would be appropriate!

Naomi Jane said...

Ooo would you ever do one with a lighthouse on it and the inscription I just described????

Kathy J said...

Oooh, I'm very excited about the possibility of winning a lamp! I would like to put myself forward for a wedding one with Kathy and Simon and the date 3rd June 2010. Thank you. Xx (all my fingers and toes will be kept crossed!!!) xx

Cathy Woodall said...

My choice would be a Wedding Lamp and the names would be Catherine & Ian. No, it's not me having abandoned Dave for another man! It's my best friend who got married just last year on 4th August 2012 and it would make an absolutely perfect 1st Wedding Anniversary present for them!... Thanks Hannah, for your generosity in having this competition, keeping my fingers crossed...

Vicki Sharples said...

I love your work and seriously need to order some for the shop im opening in April. If I win id like the moon and stars for my mum joyce as she is 65 on the 4th June and I love her to the moon and back x

Stacy Martone said...

I just love your work... My son is my moon and my stars and so I think that theme would fit my son's room perfectly... If I could inscribe his bday 7-17-2008, it would be so perfect, Hoping we get chosen :)
Stacy

Anne Morgan said...

What a nice idea. A nice wedding gift for my cousin if I won! Lucy and Mark 7th September 2013.

Hannah Nunn said...

Great to see all the comments flooding in. Thanks everyone. All of these would make very sweet lamps x

DJ said...

lovely work - always nice to see properly made individual products in this day of mass produced tat.

My choice would be Tree of Life - it's my mum's 80th Birthday in July so it would be for her - Marlene 19 July 1933.

She's an amazing mum - always putting others before her, so it's nice when I get chances to give her something special in return.

Debbie x

SuzyMcQ said...

What a lovely and generous offer, Hannah. Best of luck to you at the show. Fingers crossed lots of orders come your way.

My choice would be the Dandelion Lamp. An appropriate motif for a gardener, I think! I'll be 60 at the end of the year and winning this would make that much more bearable, thus the inscription would be, if possible "A dandelion in the Spring....
It is a part of a lovely poem.

Carly P-T said...

Such a lovely idea. I love them all and have 2 special occasions that would fit one of the lamps. My friend Liz has just given birth to 2 beautiful twins Harriet & Poppy and then my good friend's Shell & Andy are getting married soon. Keep up the good work, I hope to visit your shop one day! x

jackie384 said...

Love your work, so excited about this giveaway!

Tree of Life inscribed with "Bristol 01.12.2012" would be perfect to give the boyfriend on our first anniversary at the end of this year when we'll be literally 9,000 miles apart!

He enjoys studying spiritual philosophy and the concept of the Tree of Life alludes to how all life is interconnected; your lamp would be a great way of saying that we'll see each other again soon. :)

Really do hope my entry will be chosen! *fingers crossed!* Thank you for being so generous with your beautiful creations, you'll be a hit at that craft fair for sure! xx

Ann Martin said...

Ooh, how nice! There's no denying I love all of your lamps, but the wedding lamp would be just perfect. Bryan and Rachel / married on October 5, 2013.

Valerianna said...

Ooo.... how special.

Tree of Life

Valerianna
17 October 1963


Thanks for the opportunity!!

Darlene Suba said...

I recently discovered your talent & absolutely love your lamps! All of the lamps are beautiful. However, if I have to choose one it would be the tree of life with the saying: D + A October 4, 2008 which represents mine & my husband's wedding day. Our wedding theme was the tree of life with D + A "carved" into the tree as our wedding invites. Our cake was designed with the tree of life as well all in a fall setting. I am currently painting a tree on canvas for my husband. We are infatuated with trees :)

Tanya Sherriff said...

I would absolutely love a tree of life or any of the other ones (except the wedding one!!) with Maya 25th May 2005 or Emrys 3rd May 2011 ......... they would be very loved and admired by us Thanks x Tanya

Deb Harrison said...

I would like the lovely cow parsley wedding lamp with the names Deb & Ad 1st September 2012. While on honeymoon my brand new husband was asked when we got married...he replied 4th September! Doesn't bode well for future anniversaries if he had the date wrong 3 days after our wedding, I think he is going to need an illuminated reminder!!

Tanya Sherriff said...

I would absolutely love a tree of life or any of the other ones (except the wedding one!!) with Maya 25th May 2005 or Emrys 3rd May 2011 ......... they would be very loved and admired by us Thanks x Tanya

So I would love (if lucky enough)

Thank you for the give away!

Susan said...

She lights up my life every day

Kerry Firth said...

Hey, I love them all! But would especially like the Moon and Stars for my daughter Harriet

I am holding out for the dandelion one on my birthday wish list!

Love your work and am lucky enough to live near a stockist too! (Abbotsbury)
Kerry xx

Bonkers About Buttons said...

Sound good? Are you kidding? it's a whole lot better than good - it's "trippingthelightfanbloodytastic"! I have always coveted your Dandelion Clocks. My words would be "You blow me away!"

dawn said...

What a lovely giveaway! :)

I'm getting married this year, so a wedding lamp would be really lovely!

It would be for:
Dawn and Rob
12th October 2013

You have such lovely work Hannah! :)

Helen Dickinson said...

Your designs are so lovely and unique.

I would love a Stars & Moon Personalised Lamp with Maxwell on it with 12th December 2011.

Would be for my little man!

Thank you so much :) x

Tweedside Jacobs said...

I would love a moon and stars lamp form my baby boy with the text Alfie Levi 15th October 2012. He's soon to go into his own room, so one of your lovely soft glowing lamps would send him off to dreamland just perfectly x

Kate-Em said...

What a lovely idea. I can see why you would want your lovely lamps to have homes to go to. If I was to win I would like a wedding lamp. It is our first anniversary this year which is paper so would be very appropriate. It would say Mark and Katie 20th October 2012. Thank you.

Callula Glass said...

Such beautiful lamps! I have just spent the last couple of weeks making wedding invitations for my nephew and his fiancee...including hotfixing over 2600 swarovski crystals! I would love to win one of your lamps as a gorgeous unique wedding gift for them. Their names are Ashley and Natalie and the wedding date is 4th August 2013
Fingers crossed xx

Franki said...

Ooh I'd love the moon & stars one with the name Luca on. Would be perfect as I knocked Luca's lamp over the other night and broke it during a night call for his dummy! So glad Sarah Mason pointed me your way. Will definitely be looking to get some of these for unique for presents for people and to decorate our new house once the wedding is over and done with.

nunuboogie said...

Hannah your work is inspirational, i'd love to say i'd pass on your lamp to someone deserving but I want it all to myself :) my favourite design is the dandelion clocks, Kelly 12th August.

Hannah said...

I'm having fun reading all your comments. HOW am I EVER going to choose???

Keep em coming x

Heather Higgins said...

My choice would be the dandelion clocks, for my wonderful mum...it's her 70th birthday on 31st March and I would love to give her one of your beautiful lamps! What do you buy the woman who has everything? I'm finding it sooooo hard but one of your lamps would be perfect to show her just how very much she means to me. The dandelion clocks are a perfect image of time blowing in the wind as she reaches seventy wonderful years old!

Roy Faithful said...

Our choice would be the Dandelion Clock for our grand daughter EVIE who will become a teenager on 10th May 2013 and the lamp will remind her of how proud we are of what she has done so far and how much more potential she has.

Roy Faithful

Rebecca Scott said...

If I was lucky enough to win one of your gorgeous personalisted lamps I'd pick the moon and stars one. It would be lovely to have it personalised for "Andy". He's my husband and I think he's an absolute star! He makes me feel twinkley and would be a lovely surprise present on our wedding anniversary.

Jennifer said...

Hi Hannah, I met you at a Country living fair last year and have followed your blog ever since. I've just finished designing a Wedding Table Plan for my cousin who is getting married at Easter. Anna & Matthew 6th April 2013. The theme of their wedding is 'Spring' one of your gorgeous lamps would be a wonderful surprise for them. They recently got burgled at home, the theives stole the grooms suit, can you believe it!!!??
Thanks for this great competition and keep up the good work :D
Jennifer

Great idea Hannah and I hope it goes well for you at the Trade Fair - you deserve it!
Our choice would be a Tree of Life design with the enscription:

Scarlett Eve 20th January 2013

For our latest gorgeous granddaughter.

Many thanks and have a great fair!

Stephen and Hilary White

Emma McConnell said...

Hi. I'd love to be able to give a wedding lamp to my friend Karen, who is getting married on Monday (25th march 2013. The names would be Karen and Björn.

Laura said...

Hannah, loving your tea lights I got for my bday, thx. I would love a tree of life (or any other) for my daughter Megan 19th August 2012. She is about to go into we own room, and a soothing calm light would be wonderful. She is our little ray of sunshine at the moment - but anything to help her sleep would be wonderful!! Keep up the good work. Laura lauragoody1975@gmail.com

Sarah Queenan said...

My gorgeous baby boy, Charlie, will be moving into his own room soon as he is outgrowing the crib in our bedroom. He needs a nightlight lamp and your beutiful lamps would be perfect. I love the moon and stars design which will match his ceiling mobile. His birth date is 3rd December 2012.

Lynne Russell said...

What a lovely idea to delight someone with a special lamp.I really love my dandelion clock candle light that glows so warm and reassuringly on my mantle piece.

A companion for it would be such a little treasure and after much deliberation I think the moon and stars would be my choice as its just magical.

I think "Lynne 15th August 1951" would be a great way to remind me of all my wonderful birthdays.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
Lynne

sarah said...

I wish....I wish....I wish for a wondrous Dandelion Clock Lamp please.
If my wish is granted...please name the lamp Sarah & my memorable date would be 6.1.13 as this is when the love of my life & I finally got together....Thank you xx

susiem said...

I would love one of your lamps for my daughter Jodie she will be 30 on the 30th April she was born 1983. She has only been married for 18 months and her husband has got leukemia and is undergoing chemo. It would cheer her up very much as she loves my lamp that I bought several years ago.
The Tree of Life would be so appropriate. Thank you Hannah :-)x

Patricia said...

My niece loves the fairy lights of yours which i have in my house. So I know she would adore a lamo for her new bedroom (she's not going to be sharing with her older sister any more). The dandelion clock one with her name Madison and date of birth 20th September 2002 would make her room extra special!
Patricia.

Jane S said...

Hannah what a lovely idea- I have one of your beautiful cow parsley lamps and I love lighting it every day. Being selfish I'd love another and I adore the Tree of Life or the dandelion. It's our 20th wedding anniversary in June and I'd love one to just say "our love continues to grows" Fingers and toes crossed and good luck everyone.

Zanna said...

My chosen lamp is the Tree of Life with the name Clare and date 23rd October 2013. Clare is my sister who will be 60 this October. She has participated in the Tree of Life Scheme (planting trees throughout Scotland) and is known by my son as "the tree hugger"! This lamp would just make the perfect 60th birthday present for her. Fingers crossed!

MyWishWand said...

Hannah, your work is sublime and I just love your lamps. My son Herbie was lucky enough to be given one of your lamps by his godmother when he was born and is his nightlight of choice 5 years on! I then purchased one for my god daughter when she was born as it is such a unique and wonderful gift - one that lasts a life time. I would love the Tree of Life for my daughter Lulu, who is 9 but having major problems at school with her peers. I would love to give her the Tree of Life to give her the strength she needs to carry on and be strong in her life! Have a great show!

Susan Sellars said...

I love your lamps, I have had one for many years and it gets many comments. I would love the tree of life to go to my daughter and son-in-law Jodie & Rob 27th August 2011. Rob was diagnosed with leukemia in January and is under going chemo then a bone marrow transplant. It would make a very special special gift for them. Thank you X

Coralie said...

Your lamps are just beautiful Hannah. I would love to win the dandelion one for my beautiful little niece and god daughter Ariadne, born 26th October 2012. We live overseas but are very excited to be meeting her for the first time this summer, we can't wait! Thank you so much and good luck with the show!

Beth said...

Hi Hannah,
I hope you might remember me... I came into your shop with my Mum in Autumn time. She borrowed your toilet and I talked to you about the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair which I was going to be volunteering at, and which you would be showing at. I came to see you at your stand and also met Bryoney who was helping you at the time.
I am getting married in September and would love love love one of your beautiful lamps for our new apartment!
Wedding lamp - Sam & Beth married September 14th 2013
Thanks, Very hopeful!
Beth :)

Tina Freeth said...

Hello Hannah,

I have a little girl called Alma and it's her birthday on Tuesday, her name means 'Soul' in Spanish and Italian. She definitely has a lot of Soul! She was born on 26th March 2012. Apart from Alma from Coronation Street, another famous Alma is a character from a book by Nicola Strauss called 'The History of Love' - the main character is called Alma Singer and represents all women in the world. I would love a lamp to shine her name in our house as she brings much light to our lives.

polly said...

love your wedding lamp-beautiful...would love this for my daughter.

jay said...

I would like your Moon & Stars lamp for my brother who is having such a tough time at the moment. I would give him the moon and the stars if I could. Richard 31 March 1959

Anonymous said...

I'd love one for my own children but my friend, Mel, from Hebden has a new baby. I think her little girl's name is gorgeous and would look lovely on one of your lamps. It is Wren Elodie and she was born on 13th February 2013.
Danielle O'Shea

Nicola Clare said...

I'd love the dandelion clock for my daughter Amelia Lily (she's got the X Factor but was named before the show!) with her birth date of 21 March 2010. We love nature and it would be perfect and fun as she tries to blow the dandelion clock and it turns out (with the help of mummy lol)

Ashlee said...

What a lovely offer. Your lamps are all beautiful but if I was chosen I would pick the moon and stars lamp for my little boy Daniel. We have just moved house and I have wallpapered one wall in his room with a star motif and the lamp would look beautiful along side it.

It would be lovely if the lamp said "Daniel" or "Dare to be a Daniel" as when he was born a lovely older lady sent me these lines:

Dare to be a Daniel
Dare to stand alone
Dare to have a purpose firm
Dare to make it known

I loved it as it made me think of one day sending my tiny baby out into the world with a mighty heart and a strong mind ready to be his own person.

Vickie said...

I really like your work. Very intriguing and different. I like the Tree of Life, but would be happy with any of the four designs. Wishing you continued success in your business!

Maggie Marshall said...

Your work is truly inspirational. I love the Tree of Life Lamp and if I was lucky enough to win it, the wording of my choice would be "Dear Mother" 10th June 1996" for my late Mother, Mary. The Lamp will reflect my ancestral roots, just as the tree of life does.
Kind regards, Maggie

melissaceramics said...

Hello! I love your work and would love to win anyone (apart from the wedding one - only cause I am not married)!
Mine would say
Chloe 28th August 2010
for my daughter!
Thank you!

Lynda Jean said...

I would be happy with any design, as long as the following quote was included. The buddha in me, see's the buddha in you
Thanks xxxxxxxxxxxx

Mia said...

Hi Hannah... My chosen one would be the Moon & Stars lamp and it would say "Silverwoman" 24th May 1990! Thank youuu.. fingers crossed! x

Lucelfo said...

Hi Hannah,

Kerry McQuade said...

Dandelion lamp for my best-beloved daughter May.
She flies to Shanghai on 4 April for a year to be a dance teacher - be magical to send her a birthday lamp to remind her of home - and spread the Hannah Nunn seed to the largest city in the world!

May, dancer

Peter May said...

Saw the link through a tweet from snug gallery. Im a designer myself and am really interested in how making, personalisation and memories can add value to objects in addition to their economic costs.

I would love a tree of life lamp with today's date on it as today is my 26th birthday! This would attach personal value and a specific memory to the object.

Here's a little bit of my work if you would be interested to read http://addsomevalue.wordpress.com/2012/07/10/not-who-you-14/

mel daniels said...

Hi Hannah, just saw this in time!
- I'd love the dandelion for my daughter. Everything she has is hand me down from her big brother and sister! Her name is Mabel Iris Daniels and her dob is April 25th 2012. What a lovely first birthday present. Here's hoping, thank you
Mel

Anila Abraham said...

Hi Hannah, I recently came across this blog of yours and I cant fathom the kind of work I see here.I would be more than happy to see your work right in front of my eyes

Hannah, I would choose Wedding lamp, with Anila & Jittu on it.

Anonymous said...

Hi Hannah, Such a huge response. I tried earlier but don't know if it was posted. Just to say I would love The Tree Of Life lamp as I will be 59 this May, a cause for celebration to see out my 58th year as my mum died at that age and it seem to be my anathema. Soo 19th May 1954

Pamela said...

I would like the moon and stars lamp to say "Twinkle, Twinkle". A good reminder to sing that song often. *~*~*~*~*~*
Thank you for the wondrous giveaway! You are so kind.

milkpetal said...

I love the dandelion design :)

grinnerlynn said...

Hard to choose love the tree of life one so would want my Daughter Aimee Doe 5th November 2004 but also love the Wedding one Which would be Lynn & Andrew 5th July 2003 its our 10th anniversary this year :) xxxx

Jane Paisley said...

Hello Hannah, my choice would be the Dandelion Clocks lamp for my sister Sarah, aged 41. I remember her holding dandelion clocks and blowing them when she was about 3. She wore a sort of stretch nylon dress made by Ladybird , which you could buy in Woolworth's. It had a floral design and was in brown, orange and pink. A real '70's colour combination. All the seed heads got blown back into her hair and stuck to the dress.
The lamp would be a memory of that for her.
Thanks, Jane

Amanda Dummett said...

Hi Hannah - I've tried to post this a couple of times with no luck so in a last ditch attempt (even though it's past the deadline) I thought I should try again... I would love to give one of your beautiful lamps to a friend who has just had her first much wanted baby after years of trying. Her name is Annie and she was born on the 21st October 2012. She would love the dandelion clocks with the date on the reverse! Whatever happens, all the best for the fair. We LOVE your lamps and have one for our baby girl as well as fairy lights we were given as a wedding present. Amanda x

Hannah Nunn said...

Thanks soooo much for all your marvellous entries. I have chosen the winners and made the lamps. I'll take a snap of them once my stand it set up at the weekend and reveal the winners. xxx

Hannah Nunn said...

I have just announced the winners in this post http://hannahnunn.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/and-winner-are.html Thanks soooooooo much for all your entries. I really would love to be able to send a lamp to each and every one!
