Unleashing My Inner Plaid


Country Living
With fall officially here, I'm starting to think about Tartan plaid--a lot!

If you've been following my blog for a while, it's no secret that I'm mad for plaid!

Pinterest
And this is the time of year that I appreciate it the most, all the way to Christmas and beyond.

Today, I pulled out my plaid blankets, dishes and pillows, and began decorating for fall and the upcoming holidays.

I put the Ralph Lauren plaid wool blanket and shams back on the bed...

...And pulled out some of my plaid dishes for everyday use.
This pattern will be perfect for coffee and cinnamon toast in the morning!

And this pattern showcases Aaron's desserts beautifully!

New on the kitchen shelf are these recent TJ Maxx finds.
Ralph Lauren plates in the Skylar and Skylar Floral pattern, which is destined to be my next tablescape.

You could say that I'm unleashing my inner plaid right now!

Pin It!

Go for it! I love that new R.L. pattern you found! What an awesome design! I should have bought you that apron I told you about after last Christmas. I looked for it and couldn't find it the last time I was in there. I look forward to you tablescape with Skylar!

I'm loving your unleashing of plaid!!!! I just found the same dinner plates at Marshall's. But I didn't see the salad plates and I'm on the hunt for more dinner plates. I love how you change out the sheets. My bedroom is soft pastels. I wonder if I could find pastel plaid sheets?

Thank your for sharing all of your great finds.

I just bought 8 of those plaid dessert plates (that's all they had) at TJ/Homegoods tonight! I also have those other tartan ones you posted (American Living collection...JCP right?) ....I have so many tartan dishes...can't wait to get them out... I'm a tartan FREAK.

I just bought the Ralph Lauren Skyler plates! Where did you find the placemats with leopard print?

Delores, I know it's just the beginning of summer, but I missed this post last year. It was when we were traveling, so I'm visiting today. After all "plaid isn't just for Christmas" or fall as the case may be here. LOL
Love this! ~ Sarah
