United States cheese boards

How cool are these United States cheese boards? (As a Michigan girl, I'm psyched that they made a separate piece for the Upper Peninsula!)

Aura said...

HOW CUTE! I want an Oklahoma one. Our state looks like a big cooking pot :)

Morgan said...

I. Love. These! I'm absolutely getting one!!

Rachel Dangerfield said...

I love the little heart / flower carving in each of them. At first I thought it must be marking the capitals of the states, but it seems to be just a random cute touch :)

ThePartyGoddess said...

These are fabulous!!!!

Becca said...

These are awesome! I hope they make a Massachusetts one soon!

Joanna Goddard said...

rachel -- you can CHOOSE where they put the heart/flower! so it can be on your town! isn't that brilliant?

maggie said...

Great find! I'm gonna request an Arkansas board with a heart on Little Rock. Thanks, Joanna! xo.

Rachel said...

I can't believe there's not a Wisconsin board made yet! What more are we known for than cheese??

Patricia said...

The UP, eh? I agree about Michigan!

coolkids said...

Diana Mieczan said...

How fun...I love cheese and we often have wine evenings with friends so this is such a great way to display the cheese...yummy....!!!

Have a great weekend with your boys, Joanna:)

i was envisioning a canadian version of this, but then realized that half our provinces are square.

i suppose the other half might work out?

it's a great idea though!

Hey Jo,

I recently did a post featuring the California board. There is some amazing state-themed stuff on our friend Etsy!

Well, as a former Great Lakes girl (on Lake Erie) & w/a Pennsylvanian-past, I might have to spring for an adjoining set. One for blues, one for triple cremes, perhaps a Maryland, too. They'd make great gifts.

PS: Toby giggles beautifully. I think he deserves an Empire State cheese board for when the time comes...

The French said...

Such a great gift idea! Thanks for posting.

The Cali one is pretty rad:)

abigail said...

the Michigan one is awesome!
I hate it when they leave off the UP!

rebecca said...

i need one of these! freaking adorable.

Allison said...

Oh my goodness, I just moved to Chicago from Texas and am missing my home state like crazy! This is the perfect thing to help keep home in my heart (and in my kitchen!) Love it and am putting on my Christmas wishlist already :)

Piper (DailyDivaDish) said...

Gorgeous! What a creative idea.

Ian H. Smith said...

These are awesome, although I'm pretty sure that I already have a Colorado cheese board (which is fortunate since that's where I am).

ps: woo Michigan! I'm heading there in two weeks!

Cassandra Marie said...

I know! I fell in love with AHeirloom's shop when I came across a photo of one of their cutting boards! And they will actually be hosting a giveaway with one of these on my blog soon! I'll let you know when I post it so you can enter if you want :)

Julia said...

I noticed Sarah pointed this out...I'm a Wyoming girl originally and yes, it's always SUCH a bummer never to be able to recognize your home state by the shape! Oh well, we just get all the regular rectangular cutting boards ;)

These are very cool - and make such a great gift! Sorry I've been out the loop recently. My work has blocked blogging sites - the horror right?! I'm slowly trying to catch up with my favs!

As a fellow Michigan girl, that cheese board makes me very excited, too! It even has all of the the little bays carved in! Swoon!

Jules @ Lovely Las Vegas said...

No Nevada one? Hehe.

Very cool idea! After spending 1 year in Houston, I'd digg the Texas one... and I think my hubby would adore the California cheese boards. Lots of room on both for a great spread of cheeses.
