PLAYFUL PLAID ...



perky. playful. plenteous.

PLAID

did I mention perky, playful and plenteous?

tis the season to pull out all the stops!

get your plaid on!

I've got it on the front porch,

on an old red ladder in my livng room
 and tied to my
mail box
(see last photo)

it's everywhere ...
the more the better ...

the thrift shop
storefront windows
Kohls
Target dollar aisle
Nordie's
and Macy's

so loosen your leder-hosen and throw
a plaid blankie
down for a tree skirt!

I have always, always, always loved plaid- even when I was a little girl. I have a big plaid bow to tie on my mailbox yet-and then, I think, I am done! xo Diana

I don't use plaid in my decorating but after looking at your collection of images I may have to add some to my husbands TV room!

I love plaids..I started collecting wool plaid blankets several years ago but the catch is I can only buy them at yard sales or flea markets..It's a lot of fun this way..To date I have 8 and paid no more than a couple bucks for each one..Your photos are beautiful..Have a wonderful evening..

Plaid is my favorite color! Something about it is magical and practical all at the same time!

I am such a fan of plaid! You have gathered so many beautiful images that invoke warm and cozy feelings! I remember the little girl holding the kitten from Victoria mag years ago!

Nothing says Christmas to me more than a plaid taffeta skirt - always wanted one. Love the wedding dress with the tartan top.

Happy, Happy

I like all of it, though I'm not sure about a man in a plaid blazer. But I could like that too depending on what his face looks like.

I love plaid, I don't know why I don't use it more often.

How wonderful to see you love plaid as well...
It is my all time favorite to decorate and design with!
As soon as the chilly weather comes, out comes the plaid throws, blankets, plaid pillows, comforters...and then comes the fun part...pairing it with pheasant feathers, grain sacks, pewter...i could go on and on! I have a 200+ year old farmhouse that is all dressed up with red plaid for the holidays. :)
So...did you ever think about selling that fabulous laundry cart on your porch yet??? hint..hint?? :)
Have a wonerful weekend, Joy! xo
