~ game boards

Aren't these game boards charming? These wonderful reproductions are done by Diane Allison-Stroud. I am such a fan of recreating things from the past.  I have always been a believer in mixing real old with pretend old... it totally works if the pretend old is done well. .. These game boards are fabulous pretend old!
Check out her website HERE.  There are loads of designs to choose from including backgammon and checker board designs, circle game board designs, and many more... all charming and wonderful. I would love a pair or a collection over a mantle, in a child's room, or in a kitchen. If you're looking to add a little warmth and character to a room, something fun and interesting, game boards may be a good option...
