Mad for Plaid

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!

Love the variety in this bowl.  I made the clove pomanders years ago and they still smell good.  I also made the acorn covered ball and the hemlock cone covered ball.

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?

  1. Hi Paul! Oh, the scarves look great as table runners! I love your pretty bowl filled with winter! 😉
    Oh, I’ve just made a lemon pie! 🙂
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  2. I’m so glad I’m not the only one that hangs on to things hoping they come back into style…lol.

    Great job with those scarves, they look perfect!

  3. What a perfect winter tablescape! I am now rethinking some scarves I have laying around.

    I also wanted to tell you thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers from my little guy as of late. (((hugs))) and Happy New Year!

  4. I love to see little girls in plaid skirts. I think they’re so cute. I love the rustic bowl mixed with the plaid–very nice!

  5. What a creative idea! I love your bowl too. I would love to know how to make the acorn ball – we have a million trees in our yard and my deck is full of acorns each fall 🙂

  6. What a great idea! I’ve been scouring Ebay for a tartan plaid throw for my Living Room. So cozy for Winter.
    Happy New Year friend.
