Tartan Parade

Happy Monday everyone!  Have you seen Alison's blog, The PolohouseI enjoy reading her posts because she decorates her home in English country style, and I'm a big fan of English country.  :)  Alison is having a "Tartan Parade" on her blog today, and I decided to join in.  I haven't been participating in link parties for the last few months because life has just been too hectic, but a party featuring tartan plaids was hard for me to resist.

I love tartan plaid -- both in my wardrobe and in our home.  We have bits of tartan scattered throughout the house, so I'll share some here (I apologize to my readers who've seen these before).

I love these foxes, dressed for the hunt.  ;)  My sweet husband gave these to me for Christmas a few years ago.

Duncan's first toy -- a gift from the breeder.  These can be purchased at "Harry Barker" here.

I've done a couple of tartan plaid tablescapes for Christmas over the years.  Napkins from Expressions online.

Of course, a Scottie likes to be fashionable, too.  ;)  If you'd like a tartan plaid collar for your favorite pooch, you can order one online from the "Tartan Scottie" website.

Care to cuddle up with a warm Scottish tartan blanket?  I found good quality tartan plaid throws at Gretna Green online here.

With Christmas coming, it should be easy to slip some tartan, or just plain plaids, into your home.  ;)

It's too hot here in summer to look at tartan plaids, but when fall rolls in, I pull out the plaid.  How about you?  Do you like to show your highland colors?

Thanks so much for your visit -- I appreciate you spending some of your time here.  I hope you'll stop by The Polohouse for Alison's Tartan Parade.  Have a great day!



  1. Denise, so glad you joined the parade. I never tire of seeing tartan around one's home. You have some lovely pieces. Love your handsome Scottie. Enjoy the parade!

  2. You have a great collection- love that picture with Duncan and the tartan toy! I just remembered I have a red tartan throw I keep in the car in case we need it- the picture of the two throws on the chair reminded me since mine looks like your red one. Love that statue on the hearth with the red tartan ribbon tied on- too cute!

  3. Lovin' Duncan's collar and that's a nice spiffy new pic of him up top too:@)

  4. Is that a doorstop or a ceramic Scottie? So cute! I do not have a lot of plaid, though I do like the look and I really enjoy my Christmas plaid tablecloth.

  5. Thanks for sharing your wonderful touches of plaid! Sally

  6. I enjoyed seeing all your touches of tartan plaid around your home, Denise. I think plaids never go out of fashion and they especially look pretty at Christmas time. They just seem so warm, cozy, timeless, and inviting. Thanks for sharing your tartan love with us.

  7. Everything looks so beautiful and cosy, Denise. Don't let a Scot catch you suggesting that tartan is part of an English country style, though!

  8. Beautiful touches of plaid around your house, specially the doggie and tablescape. No! I love them all!
    I too joined Alyson's Tartan Parade.
    Happy November.

  9. Your touches of tartan make for bright spots in your home, Denise. It's a classic look that will never go out of style. Fall/winter is the season for tartans in my mind. They're cozy and warm.

  10. How have I missed you in bloggieland???!!
    Thanks for linking up all of your GORGEOUS images here!
    Love your tartan touches and your sweet Duncan is the perfect
    model for the Highland patterns.
    I can see I need to spend some time going through your archives, Denise!
    So glad plaiditude has connected us!

    Thanks for linking up!
    Your newest follower.

  11. Oh a tartan parade! I'll have to dig up a post and join!

  12. HI Denise! Oh, I've loved seeing your plaids and of course little Duncan is so handsome in his finery! :) Thank you for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  13. Denise, I love tartan plaid too, even though I'm not scottish. A little Irish instead. I just about die everytime I see Duncan. He is just too darn cute and my little Kai does remind me of him just a little. Your home always looks so warm and bright and comfortable. I will stop by to visit with Alison..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  14. I enjoyed seeing all of your tartan. I'm visiting from Alison's Polohouse Parade. So happy you joined in.

  15. I do enjoy a tartan plaid. My new stockings that I bought for everyone could be a version of a tartan plaid...
    Blessings on your week!

  16. Love this post! Didn't realize you had so much tartan. The Christmas table is gorgeous. Love you, Mom

  17. Stopping by for the tartan parade... loved all the tartan everywhere! And how fitting is your cute Scottie doggie wearing tartan?? Perhaps he will need his own clan tartan ;)
