Mini Bread Board Giveaway- Handmade from the Heart

by on December 16, 2011

*This giveaway has ended. Thank you everyone for participating! Twitter and Facebook selected the winners. I asked for a number between 1 and 431. I took the first answer from Twitter- Comment #50 is one winner. And the first answer from Facebook: comment #318 is the second winner.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Hello lovely friends. I went shopping again and spent quite a bit of time on Etsy. And this is always a good thing.

Searching through stores of handmade crafts on Etsy is something I can spend hours doing. Ultimately I get click happy and start adding to my cart every time I see something beautifully hand made. And if it has anything to do with vintage linens, paper or food styling props, it is super click happy-time.

I was so super stoked to find these handmade individual bread boards by Diana at Our Vintage Home Love! All the bread boards made by Diana are custom and each are unique with their own special characters based on the wood, stain and shape.

What made me fall more in love with these boards is Diana’s story. Please read her bread board story. I cried a few times. Tissues please.

Handmade and homemade items made with love are so dear to me. Each piece weaves in a special story, a bit of the past and when I can hold it in my hands, I feel so much more inspired to love, share and give back.

So I went extra click happy and purchased a set of these boards to give away!

They are so beautifully hand crafted and are the perfect size for food photography and styling too. I just adore the different shapes of the boards and especially the lovely handles.

Diana also sells a larger selection of boards on her Etsy Store.

Good lucky everyone!

hugs and love,

diane

I purchased a set and will be giving away 2 boards to 2 different winners!

I would give one to my fiance and keep the other for myself. She is not a fan of the gooey pungent cheeses that I like. This way we can keep our cheeses apart but enjoy them together. Haha!

Lovely boards. I would use them to photograph food on, and of course as they were intended, to cut things on!

Really nice memory for her father. It is a shame he couldn’t see the boards she made.

8 Denise December 16, 2011 at 8:47 am

Thank you for doing this! Would love to have a real wooden bread board. As of now, my wooden board is used for daily and one can only capture so much with a single board until you can bored or the picture looks dull. Certainly will use it for styling, with friends over bread, good wine and cheese, and hang it up to give the kitchen a rustic look (when not used).

Wow … what a very heart filled story that makes such a peace even more beautiful knowing the history behind it. After having a big argument with my Father several months back, which now reading that story seems so petty, this has made me want to rekindle our relationship. Thank you so much!

I would give them to my boyfriend. He makes amazing bread, and I bought him a Shun knife already for Christmas, so this would be the perfect addition to his present.

These are absolutely beautiful, and I too read her story and got up to get a tissue. It gave me the strong urge to go up and do something, make something, live out a dream. I have a feeling that I’d end up putting one on the counter, and using it in any way possible.

18 Denise December 16, 2011 at 8:52 am

Just read Diana’s story. A father/daughter relationship cannot get any closer than caring on a family tradition. What is best is that everyone who buys her board and reads her story will share the close bond between a simple board and their time spent during those weekends, to their friends/family.

Simply lovely.

I am the regular hostess for my group of friends – they are all in grad school – so once a week they come over and we have a quick homemade meal together and then they scurry back off to the library – so one board will go to putting delightful treats on display for them.

The other would go to my friend who always supplies us with delicious homemade bread. He has a great starter.

If I win the 2 little bread boards I will be very happy ;-). Sometimes my son and I have a baked potato bar for dinner and I think it would be lots of fun to put our potatoes on a board instead of a plate.
OR when company comes each board would feature a beautiful and delicious cheese from Cow Girl Creamery because if there was ever a cheese that deserved its own board it would have to be Red Hawk or Mt. Tam.

Wow. WOW! What would I do? Well as it happens I’d been looking at handmade bread boards online and at craft shows to use as photo props for a virtual project. My mother is elderly and very ill, so I’m trying to help her do something that she’s always wanted to do: write a cookbook. But I’m doing it online, because it’s faster. And I’m working through her and my recipe stash to compile it.

I haven’t yet gotten into breads, but when I do, this would be dandy for the project. (I’ve got my mom’s lovely linens to showcase, too, as well as her marble board and some other things from her kitchen.)

My favorite boulangerie in the city opened just down the street. I rave about it to anyone who listens. Next time I have people over I’m going to buy a selection of brioches, breads, pastries and buns and cut them up and serve. What better way to serve such deliciousness than on bread boards so lovely?

I’ve been searching for good breadboards for a long time, but objects that come with their own stories to tell, their own histories and memories, are more valuable by far than anything from even the best cookery shops–a bit like used books with notes in margins, which I’ve always preferred to new ones. I’d use this every day halfway around the world from where it was made–I live and work in Pondicherry, after 20+ years in Toronto and Houston–I’d enjoy its loveliness each time, I’d tell the story of how they were made to my kids, and anyone else who asked. It would have another life in my kitchen, on my table, and in my writing, but one that always recalled its past, honoring its creator and her father’s craft with each use. I know that I’ve just combined my 1st and 3rd chances to win this in one post, perhaps lost one shot of three in the process–but I can’t see that what I’d do with the board is separable at all from Diana’s story. How could it be? I love surrounding myself with beautiful things, each one a tale unto itself, not merely a prop. I hope this will be one of them.

What wouldn’t I do with these boards?! They are so lovely. I’d like to serve lunch on them–everyone get’s their own “sandwich board” or hang them on the wall for everyone to see. But, I have to admit I’m a bit of cutting board hoarder. I have a small collection–some purchased, some handmade including one my brother made for my father and one my father made for his mother. Both my brother and father were amazing woodworkers and both passed away too young. I treasure their cutting boards as part of their memories.

I just read Diana’s story. I wish I could say I am heading to the garage to honor my father and brother, but it is my sister who got the craftsman genes while I got the cooking skills. I admire someone who can make things with their hands and Diana’s story resonated with me. My father wore plaid wool Pendelton shirts, which I have stored away for my son, when he worked in the garage, worrying over every detail to make sure everything is perfect. It breaks my heart that he isn’t here to teach my son, who he never met, to build with wood. I tell my son stories often about “papa” and what he could do and how he learned it from his father and uncles who were all craftsmen and build buildings and houses all over the SF Peninsula. Thank you for telling this story. Happy Holidays.

Just a couple of days ago, I was Skyping with my brother who lives across the country. In a frightening/exciting life step, I have just moved into a new apartment after 16 years in my old place and after the recent end of a 17-year relationship. As I was giving him the tour of my new home via my iPad (which I was carrying around as a very portable video camera), we got to the kitchen. On my counter, he spotted a beautiful cutting board that he’d made out of several different woods and which he’d given to me as a Christmas gift a dozen years ago.

“Is that the cutting board I made?!” he asked, excitedly. I said yes, and told him that I’d used it almost every day since he gave it to me. You can imagine how much it pleased him to hear that piece of information.

I may not be a collector of antiques or obsessed with inanimate objects — but even I know that things are often not just “things.”

great story! I am a sucker for stories about dads who leave behind legacies. My dad is one of the big reason’s I’m so obsessed with food! He was the cook of the family, and he was amazing at it. I wish he could taste some of the meals I make today. Thanks for sharing!

As a homebrewer I am interested in making spent grain beer bread. What an accompaniment to homemade bread from homemade beer would it be to cut it on this homemade cutting board.

Those are just gorgeous! I would use them! That’s what I’d do. I’d use them in every possible way. I’d use them as sandwich boards for my kids, bread boards at the table, in photographs, as a paddle. (I kid, I kid. No paddling here.) They’re gorgeous!

If I won this breadboard, I would start my own bread board blog. ” The Daily Bread Board”! A new photo each day of something that’s cooking in my kitchen, displayed on the bread board with inspirational words or quote for the day as well!

I’ve been looking for a new cutting board! I have a counter-top one in my house, but my roommates leave it stained and filthy, and I’d love to avoid dealing with that. Also, it wouldn’t hurt to use one of those to take down our fruit fly infestation due to the current cutting board situation…
