Mad About Plaid

December 4, 2014 | My Jottings

It’s no secret that I love to decorate with toiles and plaids. I thought I would post a few pictures of the newest plaid items in our household.

Sara recently bought this throw for me, and Mildred thinks the back of the couch is the perfect place for it.


I also like buffalo plaid, even though I’m not a fan of the name. I have a set of summer sheets for our bed and now a set of winter, flannel sheets. How did this black and red check/plaid get its name, I wonder?


And we normally have plain white shades on our dining room chandelier (maybe it’s more like a hanging light — chandelier sounds fancier than it really is…), but for a richer, darker touch, we now have these:


And I love to put a buttery piece of Scottish shortbread on one of these small plates and sit down to enjoy it with a hot cup of tea:


There’s more. But I don’t think I’ll line up all my long, flannel nightgowns and take a picture of those just yet. I will someday though. It’s inevitable…when you’re mad about plaid.

    I have a length of Gordon tartan I brought back from Scotland & never have been able to decide what to do with it…?

    Hi Ganeida! So nice to see you here. I love Gordon tartan, with its blues and greens. How about a table runner? Some simple throw pillows? A hemmed throw for your couch? A scarf? I watched your Skype message a couple of days ago and it made me cry. Thank you, dear friend. Praying for you all today…. xoxo

    I know…I am being a terrible friend just now. 🙁 However we always, always say a prayer for you & Michael on Tuesdays when our ministry team meets. And I have a sort of full house just now. Two of 3 boys & both girls who are coming & going like yo~yos. And I love those ideas. Will see if I can talk my mummy into doing me something…:)

    A person who prays for my family on a regular basis is a faithful friend, not a terrible one. I give thanks for you, dear Ganeida. Enjoy your loved ones being so near… xoxo

    You have such a way with plaid. If I threw a bunch of plaid around my house it would look horrible. You make it wonderful and cozy! Yet another one of your many many talents!

    So nice of you to say, Jessica. Thank you!! xoxo
