The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.

  7. I always think winter when I see tartan--I guess it is because of the popularity of tartan plaid scarves! I am going to try to join your party. Your table is beautiful, as usual. Linda

  8. I love your tartan dishes and cloths, Sarah. They look wonderful...Christine

  9. I usually think Christmas when I think plaid, but you've clearly shown, tartans aren't just for Christmas.

    I sure love your dishes, tho.
    xoxo bj

  35. Poor, poor me...I have no plaid dishes, and I LOVE them every time I see them. I will think good and hard about a plaid table for the upcoming "holiday," though. Should be fun to see those posts! Thanks for visiting my baby shower post, Sarah. ~Zuni

  36. These are more than beautiful! I don't think I can find something similar in my town, but I'm starting to think I could paint some tartan dishes myself:))) It is worth a try! Thank you for your kind comments and for the extended visit :)

  37. Oh how totally gorgeous tartan dishes! Years ago I saw something like this and almost got them, but stupidly changed my mind against them! I'M SOOOOOO SORRY NOW! Have a sweet week.

  38. Those cherry dishes look so pretty with the plaid. Looking forward to the party. laurie

  39. Hi Sarah,
    Your plaid teacup is very pretty. I really like plaid but unfortunately, my hubby doesn't. The shortbread looks really good too; yum! Thank you for sharing this with us and enjoy your week.


  40. What fun! I love Tartan! Happy Tea Day!

  41. Well, POOP! Would you believe I don't have a SINGLE bit of plaid at my house??? Not even clothes, that I can think of.
    Now DD's home...that's a different story. I could have borrowed TONS of stuff from her's.

    Cute vignettes, Sarah & a wonderful idea for a meme. Next time, maybe.


  42. hello Sarah, Tartan! Wow gorgeous! I don't think I have anything like that! I am amazed! Thank you for sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

  43. Hi Sarah,
    its always fun for me to see Shortbread tins with the tartan pattern. They taste so delicious, by the way. And your tartan cups are gorgeous matching. Lovely post.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  44. I never knew there was such a thing. Go plaid!

  45. Sarah, Your tartan dishes are just lovely and that teapot with the thistle on the top is to die for! I'm Irish and my hubby's a Scot, but I have no tableware at all with plaid on it. I think I'm going to have to remedy that very soon. ;~)
    Have a truly wonderful week!

  46. Your tartan tea is charming, especially with the shortbread to nibble on.

  47. Looks like lots of fun. I don't know if I will have a tartan post ready for this since I am in the middle of getting ready for a party, but it looks like so much fun.

  48. Great pictures for tartan day! I am thinking..what I could pull out! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!
