What is it about checks?

I have been unknowingly pinning checked fabric on my Pinterest for years.  Here is a little tour of my favorite uses of checkered fabric.

It's cheerful and colorful and I love it.
I found a cute red checked pillow on Etsy.  It's in my price range and I just might have to buy it....soon.

Also.  If you want a bit of cheering up go look at my CUTE page on Pinterest.
Things that make you go AW!

Encourage one another,


  1. Oh this makes me ALL kinds of happy!!

    Funny thing is, I have on a navy checked blouse today :-)

    Miz Boo, you would love Oktoberfest (which starts in 9 days) because the traditional garb for men is Checkered shirts in a strong primary color (a few wear pink or turquoise) it is so cheery!

  2. Oops, forgot to mention the guys lederhosen-ha!

  3. I love all of it. Checks and polka dots are my favorites.

  6. Gingham makes my heart beat faster!

  7. I love the large-scale checks mixed with toile patterns. Some day when the kids move out I will decorate my guest room that way - the husband would not allow it in our room, I'm sure!

  8. I saw some darling large khaki check pillow covers at IKEA this past weekend -- and they were not at all expensive. $10 maybe? Could be a cheap way to satisfy the check love!! :)
    I also just read an article in the Houston Chronicle online about concept helmets for NFL teams. The first image was a Green Bay helmet that looks like it's made of swiss cheese with the logo on it. It was hilarious! I didn't scroll through to see the others but thought you might get a kick out of the Green Bay one! :)

    1. Thank you! So funny!! Packers are the best!

    Red checks bring childhood memories of my mom's picnic tablecloth....we always used it!
    love and prayers, jep

  14. Too much cuteness on that cute board! That vintage quilt...oh my.

    I like checks, but never use them in my house. Wonder why?

    you have the best taste! Karen F.

  16. Checks are the best, but I can hardly concentrate on the cuteness of your cute page because I am so very excited about the possibility of a Quiet Life book! O.M.G. I seriously squealed when I just read yesterday's post. Your words and your photography are such a beautiful combo. Love, love, love!

  17. My favorite picture is....all of them. ;) I do love the red checks in the woodsy cabin. <3
