Bookmark this wonderful site: Catherine’s Table. Created by Maureen and Mark Goldman, this family enterprise was inspired by warm, loving moments experienced around the dining table. “When I think about comfort, soul, expressing love through craft, I think about the table. It is absolutely the place for us to be,” Maureen explains. All of the “comfort crafts” featured on Catherine’s Table are made by American artists and meant to be used as part of our everyday lives. Mike and I visited Maureen and Mark’s home in December and came away with probably more than our budget really allowed, but most importantly we came away with two new friends. One of our favorite finds was this bread/cheese board made from a reclaimed slate shingle gathered from an old barn that’s long since gone. Watch a video on the artist T. Michael here.
Easter, Mother’s Day, Graduation Day, Father’s Day – there are many reasons to gather in the coming months. Here’s to celebrating all those special moments and more at your own family table.
