Nothing Says "Love" Like a New Cutting Board

I got a little more into Valentines Day this year than usual. One thing I did was buy a new cutting board for Anna, specially hand crafted by our good friend Mike Schmiedicke. Mike has a gift for bringing out the beauty in old barn wood and creates some truly unique things out of what many would thow on the scrap heap.
Many of his products are available online at his Etsy Shop. Take a look!

I remember Mike picking up an old sycamore log one day near a soccer field. Some strips from that log ended up in this cutting board. Here are a couple more shots:

Current Reading: Fruitless Fall: the collapse of the Honey Bee and the Coming Agricultural Crisis by Rowan Jacobsen. Really interesting (scary) read about the honey bee and the many blights it is currently facing.

If you haven't traveled to Miami or spent much time in South Beach, then you might not be replica watches uk aware of the fact that it is a battle ground.

While Rolex exists like a benevolent force that maintains order in the luxury watch replica watches sale world - keeping everything "OK" as they endlessly spend on marketing to keep wrist watch love high - the young and restless seek out more rolex replica uk contemporary luxury sport watches from other Swiss brands.
