Tartan Parade 2012
One Party ~ Four Blogs
Kilts and Tartans
And . . .
also known as Aberdeen Terriers
are originally from
the Highlands of Scotland.
Sadie suggested we round up a
group of jaunty Scotties
for the Tartan Parade.
Looks like these guys are lining up.
It's sunny today, but with recent rainy days
I pulled out the umbrella just in case.
Surely it won't rain on our parade!
We've got TARTAN!

Each plate is white and bordered in a tartan
with the exception of the Kate Williams' pieces.
They feature this jaunty little fellow.

LIFE'S LITTLE INSTRUCTION BOOK
was a gift from a student in 1991.
It was written by a father as words
of counsel to his son heading off to collage.
It's simply a list of things one should do.

Happy Tartan Day!
Like others across the globe, many Texans will no doubt celebrate National Tartan Day on April 6, 2012. The official State Tartan, Texas Bluebonnet Tartan, was designed by June Prescott McRoberts in 1986 and adopted by the state of Texas in 1989.
