check love

alternating checks of red and cream
create a pattern
that is contemporary but also traditional
I hope to recreate a portion of this in my homestead kitchen...

Love red and white checks-
hearts I am making to fill my kitchen table wood bowl
Valentine's Day
will be here soon
I hope yours is full of red checks...
enjoy...

That is a beautiful stove backspash. It looks so great against the cream cabinets. Good luck with your project. I always enjoy your blog.

I love the red and white tile and how adorable to put the checkered heart in a wood bowl. Please be sure and post a picture. Hope your week has been a good one. Have a wonderful weekend.

Dear Karen,

Checks touch my heart. When I was little my room what light blue and white checks in my canopy and bedspread, my best friend who lived next door had bright pink and white checks on her canopy and bedspread. We thought we were the QUEENS for sure! Thank you for the memory and I adore that first image of the kitchen~~
