It's a tartan/plaid parade!
Four blogs ~ Four Days ~ April 1-4, 2012
This year I finally got my most desired dishes - Lenox Holiday Tartan!!
I had been
coveting wanting this set of dishes for a while.
Then One King's Lane had them and I hem-hawed around.....
but not for long..
Today I put them on some plaid placemats.
I found these when we were cleaning out my mother's things.
We had spotted them at the same time at TJMaxx a decade ago.
I caved, she bought them and now I have them.... they still had price tags!!!
12 placemats, 12 napkins.....
Plan on using my red goblets and the etched wines....
Loving how the tartan ribbon swirls through the fruit.
I also have some plaid for a manly table...
I made these placemats and the napkin rings out of men's shirts..
Each placesetting is a different shirt.
The sleeve cuffs became the napkin rings.
Embroidered with names and motifs... each is unique.
And my son Michael has this mom-made quilt. Out of fabric from my resource center (stash),
the guy's old shirts, and some unmentionables....
My son also sleeps with blackwatch! It's a tartan, it's a duvet, it encases his
down comforter... although... we have moved on to just sheets already...
Sweet tartan dreams!
Linking up to the parties and to Seasonal Sunday over at the Tablescapers!
