When I visited my aunt and uncle over Christmas, my aunt gave me two plaid scarves that belonged to my grandmother. I didn’t think that I would wear them because they are wool but loved their patterns. When I got home, I decided that they’d make a pretty winter table runner. I added a red and black buffalo checked scarf that I haven’t worn since college to make a set of three.
I’ve always been a fan of plaid. In college, I wore this plaid scarf with a red double breasted coat complete with giant shoulder pads. I loved that coat and still have it. If big shoulders come back in, I’m ready!
The pie safe beside the table holds a plaid sewing box that belonged to my great-great aunt. Her sewing supplies are still inside. My dad gathered the Sumac years ago for me and it’s still pretty. My dad died in 1997, so I’ve had this for a long while!
Red plaid is definitely a favorite print for winter!
What about you? Are you mad for plaid?
