Love of Tartan
Come and join me at Alison's Polohouse for the beautiful Tartan Parade! Just click below the parade sign to see how Alison and her friends are enjoying all things Tartan.
The end of September and early October I enjoyed meeting up with Quimper Club members for the annual meeting held in Seattle and Vancouver, BC. What a fabulous trip that was. More on that later. While on a day trip to Tacoma, we visited vintage shops and I found a treasure trove of tartan picnic bags, make-up bags and small luggage pieces. Oh I couldn't believe my luck. I though my only problem would be how I would get these finds onto the plane!
Well, I couldn't believe this! I couldn't buy anything, it was an auction house and the sale was not the day I was there. Sure made my husband happy.
Some of my favorite tartan pieces

Halloween was a wet and chilly evening. A perfect time to pull out tea I brought home from Vancouver. The black canister is from the Fairmont Hotel, rose tea. I have a special friend I can't wait to serve this to.
I have been wanting this RL tartan set for a guest room. Patience paid off and I found it deeply discounted at Macy's. I will show the before and after as soon as I finish.
November and I am already pulling out Christmas linens!
I love this pillow, tartan on the back

Thank you Alison for leading the parade. I hope everyone enjoyed my parade of tartan favorites. Hope you will leave a comment so I know you came to the parade.
