Mini French Inspired Bread Board Set

Happy Monday everyone!  Did you have a good weekend?  We experienced our first earthquake Saturday night and let me just say, I'm not a fan.  Hubby slept through it but our boys were a little unsettled, as was I.   Pretty sure I'd rather poke my own eye with a stick than experience one again. :)

Anyway, I'm so excited to show you a few new bread boards that I've been working on that are now available in my shop!  I have always admired french cheese boards but they are always out of my price range.  So I decided to come up with a set of mini bread boards that are inspired by my favorites. 

I'm crazy about these and I hope you will love them as much as I do.  I also decided to add a large maple bread board to my shop.  I've started purchasing my maple from the same supplier that I purchase my walnut and I think the wood is just gorgeous.  I couldn't be more happy with it.  The colors running through the grain of the wood are stunning.

And so many of you have sent emails requesting me to make a longer version of my medium walnut bread board and a wider version of my large walnut board, so I did! 

All the info regarding my new bread boards can be found in my shop.   Click here if you'd like to purchase one of these.  And as usual, I've also added more of my other bread boards! 

I worked on some fun things this weekend that I'm excited to show you.  And because we can all use some extra $ during this time of year, I'm giving away a $50 Visa Gift Card later in the week!  I can't believe how fast time is flying.  It will be Christmas before you know it!  Has anyone started shopping yet? 

Have a great day friends!


  1. That's so scary! Glad everyone is ok.

    Love the new minis!! Beautiful- just like everything you do.

  2. Yes, we experienced the shakes Saturday night too. I only live about 10 miles from your town. I thought it was my teenage son & his lab running up & down the hallway at first. LOL

    I love your new boards!

  3. I Love your new boards. Too cute!
    Glad to hear your all okay!

  4. Gorgeous - just like all the other ones.
    Sorry to hear about the scare!

  5. I love the new minis! So cute! I just started christmas shopping this weekend. Little earlier then normal for me but I had a lot of fun and feel a bit in the spirit already which is fun.

  6. Thanks gals! Katie, glad you had fun shopping! I'm hoping to get in the spirit soon! :)

  7. Beautiful work! I have a crazy question - what is that flatware pattern? Thanks for any info...

  8. The quake was felt here in N. Texas too. I'm like you, I think tornadoes are easier to deal least 99% of the time we have warnings. Not so with the quakes ~

    The new boards are wonderful!! Now, I'm going to have to think about a gift for me. :-)


  9. It is like you read my mind! These are perfect! Thanks for emailing me back too! I will head over to your shop later today & figure out my order :)


  10. Hi Barbara, unfortunately, I don't know what the pattern is. These were a recent find by my hubby and I don't really know anything about them other than they are from the 30's. Sorry, wish I could be more helpful!

  11. Glad you and your family are ok! Never been through one myself, so I can't imagine!

    The new boards are gorgeous!!

    I am almost finished Christmas shopping! I am done with my son's (I think!) and I am making everyone else's except for my hubby. I don't have a clue what to get him and I haven't yet gotten him anything! sigh....

    God bless!

  12. No problem, Diana, I figured as much! Are there any markings on the back, like the manufacturer and a symbol for sterling? I've been searching online with no luck yet. Thanks...

  13. I may have found the flatware pattern online - Reverie, 1937, by Nobility Plate. I just love the clean lines and shine. FYI

  14. WOW, Barbara!!! Yes, that's it!! Thank you for finding out what it was! I can't wait to tell my hubby!

  15. I love your blog!! IT's gorgeous! Your table in the post above is awesome - I'm so inspired!¬!

    We've got some bus blinds that I must get around to hanging- you've totally inspired me!

    I've signed up to follow, okay, stalk, you!!


  16. love your blog and your breadboards. I asked for one for Christmas!!

    I just started blogging ..... feel free to come and take a look!

  17. I really like your bread boards. Those little cups would make perfect dipping cups for olive oil for your bread. Just use a hole saw or large Forstner drill bit and cut a hole or a recess for them to sit in. If you have a good line on a supplier for those cups, it would be even better!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment today! I read every one and they always put a smile on my face! Thanks for stopping by!
