  3. I love plaid now but as a child I refused to wear the plaid jumper that my grandmother made me. Wish I had it now :-) Love the ornaments, and the MacKenzie-Childs pocket watch ornament. When I think of plaid, I think of you and Alison.

  4. Morning Sarah,

    My mother traveled to Scotland once and brought home her family's (Crawford) plaid. She was so pleased.

    Thanks for sharing and reviving my memories.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  6. Oh Sarah, I have tartan envy whenever I see your wonderful collection of tartanware! Those napkin rings are calling to me... Love your post and the parade! I wish I had time to join in the fun. :)

  7. Yes, yes, yes. Oh Sarah, your tartan collection is TDF. Without consciously doing so, I suppose I have amassed my own, with textiles, dishware and trims. Even back in parochial school days, I always loved the plaid uniforms - still love a plaid kilt.

  10. Oh yes Sarah, never met a tartan or plaid I didn't like! I love your collection of tartans. I just think tartan adds such a gorgeous pop to the home. I really didn't realize I had as much tartan as I do, and I couldn't even find some things I wanted for this parade. Guess they will appear when I pull all the Christmas decorations out. Thanks for sharing so many pretties…………..

  11. No, there is no tartan I can't love! I have kilts in two MacDonald tartans, RCAF, Maple Leaf, Cape Breton and Nova Scotia tartans. I sometimes think I'd like to sew a pile of tartan cushions for the den and make a set of luxurious tartan drapes for the den window. Dreaming in tartan.........

  17. Hi Sarah,

    I LOVE the pocket watch ornament -- just wonderful!! You've shared some beautiful tartan items; my favorites are the tartan ware tea caddy and the tartan lampshade. Your Sadie is a little cutie pie!! :)

    Thanks for the visit, Sarah, and have a lovely week.

    Hugs,

  18. Sarah,
    love your tartan! Sadie is adorable in her tartan frame! Does anyone do plaid better then our friend, "Ralph"! Love his plaid china!
    The stool you asked me about is from a catalog, if you click on my pinterest on the side bar of my blog, you can get it off my pin on my tartan and plaid board, click on it and it will take you to the catalog called Museum Selection, look under furniture. I'm not sure if it's still available.
    Thanks for visiting!

  20. Wow Sarah- you have a lot of tartan pieces! I'm amazed at the different dishes you have! I have a thing for the blue and should find something in it. Those Juliska heart plates would be cute on them! That MC watch ornament is so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi Sarah, You have quite the collection. I think I told you this once before, but those napkins rings are still my favorite! Dianne

  22. Your tartanware is exquisite! And the stack of plates is still on my wishlist. Enjoyed this post so much. Sally

  23. What a fabulous tartan collection you have, Sarah! I'm sighing over the Tartan tea caddy, your dish stack, teacup, and of course, your sweet Sadie's cute picture in the darling frame.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh Sarah I love tartanware too. I only have one small covered book and a small round box with a lid. I wish I could find more. Love yours.

  26. You have the best collection of tartans! I love them but really don't have any. Maybe this is the year I change that!
    hugs,

  27. WOW!! You really do plaid proud!

    I am "allergic" to color but sure love to see how others love and use it!

    As for plaid my favorite outfit I ever owned was waaaaay back when I used to manage The Gap....and I was a size 5....and I bought 3 of the CUTEST little short plaid pleated skirts. Oh my gosh I nearly wept when I gained weight and they wouldn't zip.....and for sure hated myself when I gave them away knowing I wasn't going to be a size 5 again, and if I did I'd be much too old to wear a little short school-girl skirt again. Dang. I loved those skirts!

    Hugs!

  28. Hi Sarah. I didn't know anything about this party until I visited Denise at House at Forest Manor. I love plaids of all kinds but now that I'm thinking about it I have very few. You have a great collection and the plaids at The Polohouse are exquisite. It is all so pretty and I will have to invest!..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  29. What a lovely variety and collection you have / this was a fun post! :)

  30. Dearest Sarah,
    Yes, somehow Tartans always look right! It warms a table setting around Christmas and for personal garments they look perfect any time in different fabrics.
    Love all your photos, you sure do have a knack for spotting things of beauty and value and know a thing or two about how to style them pretty!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  32. Just this year my fancy has taken to Tartan plaids and I have managed to find a round red tartan tablecloths and napkins , I'm ready to put them on the table,
    I have always wanted to make the trip to Marburger flea market and see all their wonderful booths

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love all plaids and especially the tartans. I do wear it but I have to find a way to incorporate it into a Victorian home!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh, gosh! I am loving all of the plaid. Plaid is just so, well, HAPPY. What a fun post (and I am coveting that MacKenzie-Childs ornament!).

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sarah,
    Love, love, love all your plaids, Tartan or not... The Mackenzie-Childs glasses are the perfect complement to the red plaids. I had to laugh at Michele at The Nest @ Finch Rest comments about her plaid short skirts. I had a red plaid short pleated skirt that I wore well into my 40s, maybe even into my 50s. Made me happy wearing it...

  48. I love tartans (and plaids) and seeing your post has made me change my mind **again** about what my Christmas theme will be this year. I haven't done a tartan theme in a long time and I have such great linens to go along! I wish I had those RL plates in my collection - gorgeous!

  49. Love all your plaids and tartans, great collection! I think you are the queen of plaids, or should I say tartans!! I only have a few, not enough for a parade. I just bought Michael's plaid chargers (on sale) last week, and I'm in the planning stages of a new Christmas tablescape using them. I haven't done a 'scape in a while and I miss doing them.

    Happy Fall!

  50. I love plaids, but I'm a child of the 1950's and everyone wore plaid back then. I haven't been to Marburger Farm in years. I went every year and then real life got in the way. Maybe this Spring.

    ReplyDelete
  51. LOve all your tartan plaids, Sarah! I wore a a green and blue tartan plaid uniform skirt my entire days in high school, with a green weskit vest. Great memories!

    ReplyDelete
  52. What's not to love about a tartan?! Back in my elementary school days, black watch plaid was big. Sounds like Miss Betty and I are about the same vintage.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Beautiful post, Sarah. Love the Tartan! I will be featuring your post in this week's Home and Garden Thursday,
