Alison at The Polohouse is hosting a Tartan Parade on November 2nd. I've always been in love with plaid, so didn't want to miss this opportunity to show my plaid addiction. Check out her blog for more inspiration from other Tartan addicts.
Every little girl growing up in the 1940s had a plaid dress -- I was no exception!
And every teenager in the 1950s had a plaid shirt and a plaid picnic blanket -- then lived in a college dorm with plaid curtains and dreamed in her plaid pajamas of that special boy that was at another college hoping to share a home with him someday.
And, now, sure enough --
a home together (for 57 years) with plaid pillows on every chair and bed!
More pillows ---And more pillows ---
Stacks of tartan throws ---
And, at Christmas -- that is when the plaid really comes out to play.
Maybe I should have forewarned Bob all those years ago about all of the plaid he was going to have to live with. About 35 years ago, there was a slight, little, problem -- on a SUPER BOWL SUNDAY, we hung PLAID wallpaper together during the game. I should have known better than trying that!
In addition to The Polohouse I'm joining the following:
