2nd Blogiversary: GIVEAWAY 1 of 14!


Okay, first I have to say my intention was to write all the 2nd Blogiversary giveaway posts before we left to go camping last weekend. But you know what they say about the best laid plans. (Um, you do, don’t you?)

Anyway, camping has come and gone and suddenly it’s Wednesday – and I’ve not written a single giveaway post. My bad.

In my defense I’ve done a ton of camping laundry (which the Mr. so sweetly folded last night) and taken the kids to the pool and the library. Now that they’re at a friend’s house for a bit and dinner is in the crockpot, I can put together all the fun goodies!!!

So here’s what’s going to happen:

  • There are 14 (that’s FOURTEEN, folks!) giveaways.
  • We will post 2 a day for the next week. One in the morning and one at night.
  • Each will stay open to comments/entries for the duration of the week.
  • Enter 1 or enter them all, up to you.
  • BUT you can only win ONE. No double dipping (that’s gross, no matter how you look at it!).
  • Winners will be drawn next week (the first week of August) by random.org.
  • We will announce winners on the blog. CHECK BACK TO SEE IF YOU’VE WON.
  • Your email address will be forwarded to each Giveaway sponsor and you will make arrangements with them to claim your prize.
  • For the rest of our polices, go here.


Okay so here’s the first giveaway, to kick off the celebration…


Dear sweet Diana of Vintage Home Designs creates the BEST bread boards! Gorgeous, beautiful and perfectly rustic.

She has offerred to giveaway a set of four Mini French Bread Boards to one of our readers! Wahoo!

    I am so excited! I follow Diana’s blog & have entered her give aways before. I’ve wanted a set for a long time. :o)

    My favorite way to use them would be for serving. I love how she displays them in her tablescapes.

  2. says

    I love these & Diana’s blog! I think I would display them in my dining room that I am doing over. Maybe on my new vintage sideboard.


  3. Amber K says

    Those mini bread boards are so cute! I could definitely see myself using them with dinner guest or as kitchen table decor! Love them!

  4. Bonnie says

    First, Congrats on 2 years!!! Second, Love these!!! They are absolutely adorable. I’d definitely use them at the table (bread with dipping oil anyone?) and then I’d probably have to purchase more so I could use them for a family dinner… They’d probably be used as actual cutting boards, maybe I’d get creative – we have a wood engraver somewhere in the house, maybe a monogram on one side & hang as decoration? Oh the possibilities…

  5. Jodi M says

    Love her breadboards….tablescape yess! She is actually the 1st blogger I followed!!! Happy Blogiversary!!!

    I would use these everyday. when they’re smaller they’re easier to hand wash than those giant wood breadboards. these are beautiful. all hail wood.

  11. says

    Since my place is too small for dinner parties and I dont have kitchen storage, I think I would use them as some beautiful wall decor. until i get a bigger place, then you are all coming over for bread and cheese!!

  12. Kathy S says

We just discovered that our newly inherited cottage needs some vintage touches so that’s where I would use this :) Hope you’re almost caught up on all the post-camping chores – I hate feeling like you need a vacation from your vacation!

  15. says

    OMG… what would I use them for?! All of the above sounds good to me! I love them! I would most definitely display them with my growing collection of old cutting boards in my dining room!

    I’m off to check out her blog now!


  16. Gina Helton says

    Happy 2nd Blogiversary! It seems hard to imagine that you have only been at it for such a short time! Thanks also for giving us all the chance to win some amazing prizes!
    I also keep meaning to send you an email on homeschooling as we are just starting out on that venture this fall. I’ll do that shortly!
    I love Diana’s bread boards and her blog! I would love the mini boards although would probably get more use out of a larger board, hand stamped in walnut!!
    Thanks and have a great day!

  23. Joyia says

    I have been looking at these bread boards on Our Vintage Home Love for quite a while now and soooo wishing I had some!! I love them and thanks for the giveaway!!

  24. Lisa Thompson says

    I would first transfer old family photographs (likely to include some of my favorite person in the world, my Papa) onto the boards by photo copying them onto clear overhead projection paper, use a spoon to do the transfer then seal them and invite the family over for dinner to discover our beloved and missed family members that have passed as well as maybe some old photos of them. I can imagine the laughing and discussions now! Love these such a great idea!!!

    • Lisa Thompson says

    Happy blogiversary Shannon & Dean!!!!! Those little bread cutting boards are adorable. I love the different shapes and the ideas that you have pictured above is everything I would dream up to do with them. However, I would serve a nice little appetizer on them for a nice intimate dinner of four …. maybe crackers and avacado with cracked pepper and parmesan cheese, cheese and crackers even sandwiches. The possibilities are endless. These are what I want to win. Thanks for putting on such a great giveaway. Kudos to Dean for folding.

  28. says

    Yeahh! This is super exciting for us ;)We’d totally use this for dinner parties to serve cheese and figs and bread, drizzle them with honey….mmmm some fruits perhaps? Grapes? Possibilities are endless!

    Wow these are beautiful! If I were to win, I would actually use mine as a decorative piece in my kitchen. I am in the middle of repainting my walls and cabinets, and have decided to go with a French country decor, and am needing something to hang on a particular wall. One of these would be perfect in that space, and would look rustic and gorgeous.
    Thank you for the chance to win!

  42. Lisa says

    I would use this everyday, since my family has to have bread at dinner every night! Cut up a baguettes for homemade croutons, slice Italian bread to make garlic bread, cut rolls and bagels. ANd when I wasn’t using it for cutting bread, I would put it to good use serving appetizers or cheese. They are beautiful!

  45. Jess Talkington says

    I’m all about decor having functionality in my kitchen as it is a very old kitchen in a 100 yr old house and doesn’t have much for storage. Love these! Beautiful! These would look amazing in my kitchen and get used very often!
