Pining for Plaids

The weather is getting colder by the day and that has me thinking of warm woolly blankets and cozy interiors - and what is warmer and cozier than the sight of plaids and tartans.

Let's see what's out there and how we can whip up a little winter atmosphere!

I've attempted to find something for everyone, young and old, vignettes, whole rooms, blankets, lampshades, books and of course, your best friend with it's little dog coat.

You can go all out with the plaids and tartans or just go with a touch of it - it's a wonderful addition to any room.  And that beautiful, decadent throw would be so easy to make with a wool blanket and some faux fur.............just saying!  It's a thought for my hubby's Christmas gift!  

Have a wonderful day!

Fall Al Fresco Dining

Hi again everyone,

We are having a spectacular fall here in Charlottetown with summer like temperatures.  Our leaves have not begun to turn color yet, which usually doesn't take place until October, around our Thanksgiving.   

While walking our dog today, I met two people on our street who were visiting from a cruise ship and travelling to our east coast for the first time from Brisbane, Australia.  They were hoping to see 'more color' in the trees, but I'm afraid they were just a tad bit early for that.  They did, however, love what they were seeing here in Old Charlottetown and the east coast in general as they cruised from Montreal to Boston.

With such amazing fall weather, I couldn't help but think what a perfect opportunity it is to enjoy some al fresco dining.........     

These ideas have certainly inspired me and I hope they will do the same for you.......even without the colorful leaves, we have a bounty of beautiful fruit, gourds, pumpkins, flowers, tartans and dishes to produce some delightful table settings.
