Red and White Check Love

With a crispness yet country vibe, nothing says Summer to me like Red and White check. Reminiscent of country picnics, vintage tablecloths and home baked pies, this classic check is a staple in my kitchen at the Homestead.

Krumpet looks dapper with the summer hair cut I gave him as he lounges on a check cushion. My kitchen table, set for a country breakfast, abounds with checks on vintage glasses and new linens while hydrangeas are tucked into old bottles. Please enjoy....

Yes, red and White checks always reminds me of summer, picnics and barbecues at the lakeside.

After the 4th, I still miss seeing red, white, and blue in design. The red chess design, in this case, offers a great, inviting design. Thanks for sharing.

Karen, thank YOU for adding ME to YOUR blog list. Being silly here. I really love your blog and found you on Teresa's list. She's the best. I just identify with your style and admire your talent with commercial design. That would require great insight to be able to make it personal and welcoming, in a public space. Thanks for coming by for a visit. I adore your needlework pillows!

Red and white checks take me back to such a simple time~~ Thank you for the glimpse of days I hold dear to me with some of my family that lived on an Iowa farm~

Wish I was at that beautiful summer table right now, either with a cup of tea or better yet a refreshing summer cocktail!!! and of course with Krumpet by our side, he will fit right in.

Thank you for stopping by. I am thrilled to meet you. Krumpet has to be the absolute cutest name ever for a Yorkie! Mine's name is Finnigan Otis. They are so dear. Am really enjoying your blog. Thanks.
