MY HOUSE HAS NO CHEVRONS



I'm scared I'm not doing this right. What are my options?

Are they going to come take my house away because there aren't any zigzags in this place?

SHOULD I BE WORRIED?

Well. . .I'm sure you at LEAST have a vinyl saying on your wall, and a big metal star. Right? RIGHT?

I am sorry. I like chevron. I like it because I like it. Not because Pinterest told me to.

brinestone said...

My husband suggested once that for a date we should drive around and count the big metal stars on people's houses. I love that man.

BUT WHITNEY, I DON'T HAVE ANY. Will I be OK?

kami @ nobiggie.net said...

I just added chevies and I'm totally excited about!

Yes...you should be totally freaked out! ;)

Thank you, Kami, I knew you would tell me the truth!

As long as you've got some ikat somewhere, you should be just fine.

Emily said...

If they come for you, I'm definitely next. Perhaps I can find chevron-shaped Kraft mac & cheese or a Bath & Body Works foaming hand soap in a chevron-shaped bottle.

Thank goodness I have some chevron baskets in my closets! PHEW!! I am safe for now. :) I need to work on the vinyl sayings though.

I know of at least one place there should be some, but those don't necessarily count.

Miggy said...

First, lets get this straight...a chevron and a zig zag are two different things. Social media really screwed this one up.

Two. Are you doing something wrong? Depends who you ask. You're either so far behind that of course you're tragically out of date, or you're so far ahead of the curve that obviously to a trendsetter like yourself zig-zags (that's what most people mean when they say chevron)are so passe.

I didn't know what a chevron was. I'm headed for designer hell.

First they came for the ones who had no Anthropologie knock-off Statement Necklaces and I said nothing. Then they came for those who refused to use the paper straws and I said nothing. Then they came for those without Chevrons. And I said nothing. And when they came for me, there was no one left.

Face it. You're doomed.

Erin said...

I've never even heard of a chevron. Does this mean I lose? Or does this mean I win? Or maybe I lose in internet, but I win in life?

Erin said...

Was that harsh? I have heard of the gas station Chevron. Now I need a donut.

Jillybean said...

I had to look up the links provided by the first commenter to even have a clue to what you are talking about.
I don't have any big stars on my house or vinyl lettering in my house either.
I'm going to go have a donut with Erin.

craftyashley said...

Nor does mine. I figure we will just be doing less redecorating after this little fad passes.

Marianne & Clayton said...

Oh honey, please. It's Ikat everything that you need to be worried about now.

Heather M said...

You know you're going to wake up one morning with a bunch of Chevron graffiti on your house! I'm sure there is a nocturnal group of rabid deco-ladies waiting to prey on victims like you...

Not only do I not have any chevron in my house, I don't have anything painted robin egg blue. GASP!!

Vanessa said...

My mom sent an email to my sisters and I the other day very worried that we didn't have chevron maxi skirts like "all the ladies in her ward" and if we needed her to buy us some. Silly lady.

Kris said...

All these years since it's been trendy and I STILL don't have anything black and white damask. No metal stars, either. I'm the worst Mormon.
