I Went Home & One of a Kind Finds . . . and a Give Away!

I had a wonderful time visiting home ~ but it is great to be back. I'll share more about that later.

I think one of the best things about arriving home was finding a package I had ordered from my friend Ann .

Those of you who know me know that I'm a huge "Ann-Fan" ~ she is the person who inspired and encouraged me to begin playing with food photography a couple of years ago.
Her food, recipes,photography and blogs are breathtaking! Please go by and visit, I think you'll become a fan, too.

I could hardly contain my excitement when I found out Ann has now opened an online gallery where you can choose from a wonderful selection of one-of-a-kind hand crafted wooden serving boards, spoons, stirrers, and soon perhaps wooden bowls. All handmade in beautiful British Columbia, Canada (which, incidentally, is one of my favorite places on earth.) :)

I've long admired Ann's serving boards which she has featured in some of her photos ~ they are absolutely stunning. And MORE good news! Ann is having a give-away on her on-line gallery. You can click HERE for the details.

It was a tough decision, but here is the first board I chose.
(The photo above is Ann's photo from her gallery.)

As beautiful as the Gallery photos are, these boards are even more beautiful in person.

Since they are all one of a kind, if you see one you like you would be wise to email to purchase it right away.

They come in a variety of beautiful woodgrains and hues; the hand-finished surface is absolutely silky smooth.

I adore the natural edges on the boards. These pieces truly will last a lifetime, and become precious family heirlooms.

I chose a large one for my first, but the boards come in all shapes and sizes. You simply must see for yourself by visiting the
GALLERY to see what is available now, and look through the archives to see what has been offered in the past.
Don't forget to leave a comment, and enter the give away.

Thank you for visiting today, I would love it if you would leave me a comment.

And a special thank you Ann for making these gorgeous pieces available to us; you're a GEM!
