cheese boards… he’s at it again.

Once again, my husband has impressed me with his abilities. To go along with the decor of the candle holders, he is also making these GORGEOUS cheese/ cutting boards. It all started when one of our land lords decided to ” prune”  a black walnut in the yard of the rental house( although, I’d say he did a little more than prune the poor tree). We noticed how truly amazing this wood was with the beautiful contrast of dark on light  and hated to see it go to waste, so we gathered what we could and let it “season” .Then we waited. When the wood was ready, he cut them , sanded them and treated them with 100% beeswax and mineral oil.  Now, he’s addicted to making them. And I am happy to admit that I am addicted to using them. Once again a job well done!

The Gift of Food

best food gifts from Country Living

click the image above for great gift ideas!

Recently, every time I am at the check out line of the grocery store, I find myself picking up magazines with ideas on how to festively wrap food to give as gifts. Now if you want my opinion, I think this is a splendid gifting idea! This is especially great if you are on a low gifting budget, as I know many of us are these days.  I also found some easy and very yummy handmade food items you can make and wrap yourself. 

Try this sinfully delicious Mocha Hazelnut Sauce from Better Homes and Gardens.

All free Crafts Has a whole slew of recipes for handmade gifts in a jar. They even have Dog Cookies!!

One of my all time favorites is herb infused olive oil. It is so  easy to make and doesn’t take much time at all.  Use a regular canning jar to store. To wrap simply cut a circular piece of pretty fabric, sit the jar in the center of the circle, secure with a rubber band and tie a pretty ribbon around the top.
