If cutting boards could talk…

Christmas at Crossroads, of course, included a visit to Miss Vicki at Homepieces in McKinney- always on the cutting edge of casual home design…her unerring eye captures the latest trend…cutting boards!

IMG_1633

the tales these boards could tell…

IMG_1609

perhaps of the aroma of freshly baked bread…

IMG_1610

or of the succulent heaviness of aged fruitcake…

IMG_1611

of the hands fashioning their design,

or of the journey bringing them to this particular place;

IMG_1612

now looking for a new home and new tales to tell.
