Game On!

After enjoying a lovely Sunday lunch at Simon and Fred's (my brother in law and partner), Louisa decided we should play checkers. However rather than use a traditional game board, she decided that bigger was better.  Much more fun to use the checked rug for the board and cocktail umbrellas for the pieces! (you gotta love her style) It was Daddy against Louisa but we all gathered round to watch and give advice when needed.  Good old fashioned Sunday afternoon fun!

Have a lovely Sunday!

That's a really fun idea .. I hope those cocktail umbrellas had a chnce to be used as they are meant to be before the checkers game started!

Who knew a rug could be turned into a game board. Brilliant idea. Love your layout too. Irene

Ha! How creative! She's reminded me of all the fun my sister and I would have making up games to play on the [very 1970s] carpet in our lounge when we were little!

What a clever girl you have to think of using those fun little umbrellas for checkers. And what a clever girl you are to make such a lovely layout to document it!
