Tartans & Plaids



                                                                      Hello everyone,

                                                           On this lovely winter day, I thought
                                                            I would share some of the ways I
                                                            have enjoyed using plaids and tartens
                                                            over the past few years.
                                                                 I used a mix of plaids to decorate our
                                                                 bedroom a few years ago.

                     I like a mix of plaids and tartans...
           even a bit of toile in there.

                                                               A plaid cushion for the garden
                                                               bench on the porch of the boathouse.
                                                                A milk delivery on the porch.....
                                                                alas it is no longer delivered to
                                                                the door as it once was.
                                                                  Vintage skates from a yard sale.
                                                               If only there was a little more
                                                               snow, this would have been perfect!

                                                             A pretty vintage tartan picnic box.


   

   Love these little red shoes.

                                                                   A winter skate?

                                                             A snowy winter day a few
                                                             years ago.
                                                               Our porch
                                                          A snowy porch picnic.

                                                           I still have my Christmas baking to
                                                           do and a few gifts to buy......what about
                                                           you are you all ready for Christmas?

                                                                              Take care,

                                                                                     Carolyn

Loved your post, it just puts one in the Christmas spirit. Here in N FL we are in the mid 70's during the day but will probably see temps in the low 30's either tomorrow evening or Fri. evening. Unseasonably warm temps even for N FL but I think you have seen some snow this year? We of course, never see snow but cooler temps would be nice. Merry Christmas Carolyn to you and your family.

From warm N FL, Carolyn

You're so right: plaids and tartans do seem to fit right in with Christmas holiday decorating. Thanks for giving me ideas! -Beth

I thought 'plaid' was American for 'tartan'. You learn something new every day. :)
Love those red shoes. xx

Looks perfect as always! lOVE the little red shoes! Precious! I am also mad about plaid and draped a large throw over my mantle with a large picket fence and lanterns on each side! Milk buckets and pails adorned the sides!
