Entertaining Idea

Do you love cheese?

I know I do.

A glass of champagne,

a slice of good cheese


a little baguette,

could easily be my dinner!

(‘the boys,’ not so much)

That’s probably why, I have such a thing,

for cheese boards.

Here…just a sample.

(I’m a little embarrassed!)

Love them, collect them.

(Of course they can be used for bread too.)

So wonderful for entertaining,

especially last minute!

Pick up some cheese,

maybe a little quince paste & honey,

(I always have it on hand)

crackers, a baguette,

open a bottle of wine or champagne

and let the conversation & fun unfold.

And, an array of cool cheese boards,

elevates the presentation and

creates a sense of romance.

Some of our boards are antique;

picked up this one on a trip

through the Sonoma Wine Country.

Others are Vintage,

with cool raised lettering.

(Santa Monica Flea Market Find)

But ALL are perfectly, imperfect.

Just how I like them!

That’s why I was so excited to

find these…

worn, discolored, Italian Cheeseboards,


at my favorite local Market!

A brilliant rep., picked them up on

a buying trip in Italy.

Would love to set them out with cheese & such,

One per guest…or couple.

So fun.

And, the rustic knot in the wood,

just the feel (and the price!) I was looking for.

You see,

I’m pulling together a

little auction item,

for the Assistance League of the Eastside.

So excited they asked.

(They’re the fabulous folks who put on the Holiday Home Tour we took part in.)

I’m including one of of these, in my package.

Can’t wait to show you what I’ve come up with.


the cheeseboards, are also a part of our

Butler’s Pantry update.

Our new cabinet, I designed, is in production,

and I’m working on giving

our pantry,

that ‘Upstairs-Downstairs’ feel!

And, these rustic, Italian cheese boards

are just what I needed.

Do you collect cheese boards?

Would love to know.
