More Fabric Love... Checks

I never get tired of checks. We all know I have a passion for blue but checks are one pattern that really makes me happy in any hue. Tufted, draped, or slip covered, I can't get enough. Here are some of my favorites. Let me know which one you love best!

We are finally getting settled and that means I am starting to cook and entertain again.  Although there are still some boxes to be unpacked, I am feeling at home when I start to bring friends and family over for a good cozy night of food, wine and lots of laughs.

It has been over a month since I first posted about our new shore colonial and once again snow is on the ground. It's been a long winter for sure!!! Can I dream about sipping margaritas on the porch with gorgeous hydrangeas blooming while looking out on the water views?

Our boys have definitely made themselves at home.

 One of our first dinners.  Menu: Butter lettuce, avocado, Parmesan cheese and lemon vinaigrette.  Spicy Mussels with grilled Ciabatta bread.

Local Mussels sooooo good!

Preparing the spicy marinara sauce for the mussels in my Le Crueset Dutch oven pan.  Serve hot!


I love Staub cookware. This one is the American Grill.  Controls heat beautifully.

The finished product! 

I love my Rose Tarlow chairs covered in Bennison fabric. Perfect spot to relax after a great dinner.
