Tartan Plaid

I know tartans have been very popular lately but they've always been part of my life ( even my alma mater's mascot is a tartan plaid! seriously). Growing up we were very 'American 'and not very in touch with my Scottish heritage -but there was always an abundance of tartan plaids around especially at my grandparents. Maybe because of that I always associate them with Christmastime.
My favorite store, William Sonoma Home, is featuring some GREAT tartain plaids for the holidays. Aren't these just great, cozy little accessories for your home in the holiday or even all winter? (unfortunately the market has me in saving mode -not spending mode :-( )

When I was a small child, upon being asked my favourite colour, I replied, "Plaid".

One job that I had was to help a friend who was getting married in Scotland and the family plaid was uses as lovely shawls which I stitched with deep velvet ribbon to border the plaid. A sharp accessory to give to the bridal party, later, great for a cozy throw!
