It was only recently that I realized my blog was approaching its Five Year Anniversary. Five Years of posting my random musings! Now while I am highly anticipating the Five Year Anniversary of my transplant when the docs will consider me cured (and the Guy intends to give me an emerald bracelet to replace the hundreds of hospital bracelets I have had to wear over these years), five years of blogging is a good reason to celebrate.
With many thanks to my friend Ann, I am giving away the cutting board you see pictured here. Ann lives in British Columbia and blogs @ Thibeault's Table. I first met her on a food message board and let me tell you, this lady can cook! On her blog she features a beautiful cutting board gallery of handmade boards for sale. I am lucky enough to have two of these boards and I just love them! Each is unique. My favourites are the ones with the "live" edges. A live edge board features a natural edge and the giveaway board is one of those. The dimensions are 21”×9½”×¾”.
The boards from "Ann Thibeault's Signature Cutting and Serving Board Collection" are made from Vancouver Island Big Leaf Maple, a Canadian hardwood, which is the chief source for quality wood cutting boards around the world. Because of the exotic figures found in a small number of big leaf maple trees, including tiger stripe, quilt, spalt, curl, and birdseye, big leaf maple is among the most sought after of hardwoods.
Life is hectic around here at the moment with a graduation, a wedding at DisneyWorld, and a separate wedding reception here at the farm ten days later happening in the next four weeks. The drawing for this beautiful cutting board will take place on the afternoon of 31 May. I'm sorry, but the drawing is limited to readers and friends in Canada and the USA only. After the drawing, Ann will directly ship the board to the lucky winner. To register for the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post. Be sure I have a way to contact you if your name is drawn.
