RED CHECKS are so in! Happy Valentines Day


Happy Valentine's Day friends!
Have you noticed that red checks are in style right now? They are especially so in Country Living magazine, my favorite magazine. So Brayton Homestead Interiors is right in style! 
I have always wanted to create a "STAY CALM" poster; so here it is! I If you have visited my blog before you know that I love red checks. I am sharing some red check pictures from older blog posts and Pinterest , enjoy..


Here at the Homestead we celebrate all holidays with red checks. Krumpet, my yorkie, relaxes in style on his own check cushion. Checks items are available in so many stores now so it was easy to coordinate his dog bed into our kitchen. He is always ready to pose for the camera!


Red checks match my country kitchen decor, but tI have always loved them-they say old fashion gatherings to me. I like the fact that checks have a homespun look that reads no fuss. My new red check mason jar lids add extra charm to selecting a tea bag .... 


Roosters rule on my Homestead spring time table, here set for light lunch with my sisters and friends. Old glass bottles that I collected hold an hydrangea at each setting... 


A vintage cake mold in the shape of a lamb boasts a red check bow tie made from check ribbon. I layered the table first with a check tablecloth  then added vintage crochet pieces on top. My antique coffee pot with it's matching sugar and creamer have wonderful red Bakelite handles,  I think it makes the set extra special.


Here, I placed my cookies in red check bags for our Christmas time cookie exchange. I painted checks then glittered a small wood sleigh that centers my table .,. Boy,  I could eat a gingerbread cookie right now..


The Fourth of July was not left out from the red check love!  My dad's old tackle box became a holder for fresh flowers and flags. I just had a tuck in some fabric; you guessed it, red check !


I just purchased these red check cupcake liners from Sweet Estelle. I saw them featured in Country Living Magazine recently. I am sure I will be ordering more as red checks are always present here. 



I am thrilled to be featured at Cozy Little House blog party!

Thank you for visiting Brayton Homestead
and HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

I am with you and loving the red checks. Just ordered a messenger bag from a fabulous Etsy shop that is all red checks and plaid with a cool red sun logo on the front. Can't get enough of red or checks. All your features here are fabulous!

I have always loved red checks, and polka dots too! So glad that they are back in style. Checks make everything, including Valentines Day sweeter. I just had a funny thought come to mind. My heritage is Czechoslovakian so I always tease hubby and tell him I'm his czech mate. lol!
hugs,
Jann
