Earth Day giveaway! Win our eco-friendly cutting board, 80$ value!


Happy Earth Day everyone! To celebrate Earth Day, we're out in our garden, digging and mulching and planting. Here's a shot that made my heart melt the other day-Daniel bringing me the first dandelions of the year! He and Elijah have sort of a running contest to see who can give me the most dandelions all day long. So sweet, these boys...and we can't forget Lily!



We want to celebrate Earth Day and this new blog with everyone from far and wide, so we're doing our first fabulous giveaway contest!
We're giving away one of our lovely, eco-friendly heirloom cutting/serving boards, made from sustainably harvested Black Walnut wood, with beautiful live edge, valued at 80$!

We sell this board on our Etsy site, and it's a best seller, as it's so versatile-it's 12" x 22", and 1" thick, so it's great for use as a cutting board, but also doubles as a serving board. It's perfect for entertaining and serving appetizers, cheese, bread, and is so large that you can serve your Thanksgiving turkey on it!



 This contest is to celebrate this new blog and also our relatively new Etsy stores, full of eco-friendly  reclaimed & sustainably harvested wood items and our salvaged vintage treasures!



The contest will run until May 18th. All you have to do is sign up to subscribe to this blog. Once you're a member, then just visit one of our Etsy shops: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LivingWoodDesign

Pick an item that you like and come back and leave a comment here with this post saying which item  you like best from any of the Etsy shops. Please leave your email address so I can contact you when you win.
On Friday May 18th I'll use a random number generator to pick a number, and whoever has that place on this blog post will win the board!
We'll mail it anywhere in North America, at no cost to you! If you're outside of North America you can still participate, and we'll pay up to 30$ in the shipping costs.

We would so love it if you would share, like, pin and twitter this contest!
Happy Earth Day everyone! Now get out there and hug a tree!

  3. Anna, I laughed at the dandelions ... I've been getting my fair share too. I just love that they have no preconceived notions of flowers vs. weeds. It's all beautiful to them.
    So hard to pick a favourite on all the websites, but one of my tops is the sewing machine. I love it!

    Andy's woodworking looks amazing too, I just couldn't pick a favourite on that site at all, it's all so nice :).

  4. I like the juice jug from Beauty Found. I think my parents had it growing up.

    1. I know, that's why I gravitate towards some of these things...they remind me of things that my parents had. I keep asking my mom why she didn't save everything. Then I start wondering what we have right now that will be viewed as 'vintage' one day...

  8. So happy to find your blog! It is very hard to pick just one favourite, but if I must limit myself I'd say the "huge black walnut cutting board" (28" long). It looks magnificent in the photos, and by the description my guess is it's even better & more breath-taking in person. I love that it is equally beautiful & useful, and especially that you use reclaimed wood and flaxseed oil for finishing.

  11. I love this apple basket. I used to have one like it and I wish I still had it! http://www.etsy.com/listing/92935629/vintage-silverplated-brass-apple-bowl

    1. Darn! I wish you hadn't mentioned this apple basket, as I'm clearly very impressionable to the powers of suggestion! As soon as I read your comment I thought " Yes, that is a great bowl...maybe I should keep it instead of selling it." This is a constant problem when selling vintage items! Thanks for posting; I just read your blog, btw-great reading!

  17. Well, I'm lusting over just about everything in the beautyfound shop -- & have been for some time -- but I'd have to choose either this teacup or these deer. (I like the ridiculously large mosaic too!

    1. Thanks Christine! You should try selling vintage on Etsy-I could see you being really good at it. I'm looking forward to antique market season!

  18. Thanks for the "how to" Anna! I love all wood pieces fashioned in their natural state for serving pieces. The rustic wedding cake cupcake dessert really caught my eye! However, wooden cutting boards with beautiful grains have always been my favourite but mostly to display.
