Our La Plates Cutting Boards are available in two size, small = 8.75" x 11.75", large = 11.5" x 15.5". Great for chopping, serving cheese & crackers, even as a trivet for a hot casserole dish!

Tempered glass is hand-wash only, sorry!

Giveaway at The Motherload

I've had the best time getting to know my neighbor & fab blogger Erin, over at The Motherload. (yes, it's the same Erin who went to meet Chelsea Handler with me!) She's such a great writer, mother & friend - she's also GREEN, GREEN, GREEN! At a recent La Plates Trunk Show, she purchased our reusable/recycled plastic tote...among quite a few other items! We decided a Giveaway on her blog would be lots of fun! Be sure to head over to her blog and checkout the rules & sign up - you can't win if you don't try!


Chelsea, my late night friend

Anyone who knows me, knows I work late into the night. During these late night hours, Chelsea Handler keeps me company. E! has her on twice a night & reruns never bother me. I think she's just as funny a second & third time around! When I heard Chelsea was coming to our local bookstore, Rainy Day Books, I knew I'd be lining up! We even made her fat dog, Chunk, one of our new PuppyMats.
Waiting in line with my friend Erin, great blogger!

Chelsea greeting everyone by name - nice touch, even if it was just reading the PostIt!

Chelsea loving her new La Plates PuppyMat - happy dining Chunk!

Not sure if Chris Franjola was suppose to make it in the store, but women were surrounding him for photos outside.


Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Never a better time to add a new monogrammed cup than Cinco de Mayo! Although we aren't celebrating like our days of Atlanta past, we still like to toast with a cold margarita. We love our new 12 ounce Tervis Tumblers for cocktails or any occasion! Hope you have a spirited Cinco de Mayo!
