Pottery Barn Win @ 2805

This humongous wine and cheese board was purchased with my $100 gift card win at 2805
Thanks bunches Honey. 
You guys remember her fun Christmas tree party? 
That was where I won this.
I was so excited to win. 
I have ordered ten dollar hand towels and an ornament from Pottery Barn. 
That's all.
You dear readers know I never spend one hundred dollars on one item. 
The Anthropology butter dish came from one of the consignment stores I am affiliated with. 
I never thought I would own anything from Anthropology or goodness gracious anything this large from Pottery Barn.

Thrilled and delighted I am.

This board is heavy and I can barely lift it. 
It will help to fill the space in our equally enormous bar.

This little pitcher was purchased from one of the consignment stores I sell at and I am loving it will the bowl of oranges.

Here is the bar which I call the "autopsy table" in bad nursing humor. 
You can see it will hold many dough bowls and the wine and cheese board easily.
All images above taken on a grey, grey, grey day because I planned not well.

may joy and peace surround you


  1. Congratulations! That's an awesome wine and cheese board. LOVE it! I really like your dough bowl too. They look great on your big ol' table.Your photos look good to me in spite of the gray day. Mine ususally turn out a goldish color if I have the lights on and try to photo on a dark day.

  2. Wow, that is huge. I love looking at Pottery Barn, but I rarely buy there. Now if I had a gift certificate, it would be a different story. Love that big dough bowl also.

  3. Congrats on your gift certificate win and receiving the fabulous PB board! I haven't seen this before but I love it and it looks great on your table. Thanks so much for sharing this at my party.

  4. Lovin' your new wine and cheese board, it's so cool with the legs-enjoy:@)

  5. You made a great choice with your gift certificate. The wine and cheese board goes nicely with the table. I also love your sense of humor!! Thanks for making me smile. :-)

  7. Oh Olive, I am quite excited for you! Now don't go getting a swelled head because you own a peice of Pottery Barn purchased new!! JK. Perfect choice and I love it! Ann

  8. Oh WOW!! Love that and it looks fabulous along with the dough bowl. I think I've only ever purchased one item from Pottery Barn... some autumn acorns that were on clearance a few years ago. Nice stuff they have but I can rarely justify the expense.

  24. I am drooling over this board with feet and your long bar/table. Perfect for laying out your treasures.
    Love your bowls!! they look like "Mark Of The Potter" bowls. Its a place up in the North Ga mountains.

  31. The board is absolutely wonderful! Now I want one, but I'll never fork over $100 for one thing and I'm not likely to win a gift certificate. :-(

    Your pictures were lovely. I had to go back and see what you were talking about when you said they were taken on a grey day. Couldn't see it. They still looked perfect.

  32. Perfect choice...looks great on the table! Your photos are great!
