Sometimes you stumble upon something that just makes your creative soul sing--at least that's the way I felt when I first saw Lauren's woodworking for Branded Woodworks. Her handmade cutting boards and utensils are not only beautiful but fit that perfect narrative of utility. Your kitchen should be filled with things that make you happy and nothing makes me happier than having handmade, useful pieces that are beyond gorgeous. You can find Branded Woodworks at Findlay Market every weekend this summer or you can contact Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I couldn't resist creating a gorgeous spread to highlight these pieces. The white peaches are from Backyard Orchard in Rising Sun, Indiana. The salted chocolate chip cookie is from Brown Bear Bakery, located just a few blocks into Over-The-Rhine at their amazing new location. The pistachios are from Dean's Mediterranean Foods, also located at Findlay Market. Everything was so delicious and my children devoured it immediately (I didn't even get a crumb of that cookie!)
