Tartan Parade 2015

Welcome to the 
Tartan Parade 

If you have been following this blog, 
you may remember 
that back in 2012
we had a blogger parade with
four blogs sharing
plaid and tartan
vignettes from their homes.

Well, guess what?
It's time
 for another parade!
Below please find
links to the four original homes
 we've added several more 
bloggers to the list.

So if you are mad for plaid 
like we are ...
please start here and 
visit the 7 homes listed, 
 then come back and link up
YOUR plaid post below.

Enjoy all the lovely

 Here is the designated parade route:

So march from one blog to the next here 
and see what each blogger is sharing with us!

These photos were taken this week
here at the Polohouse.
Tartan and plaid is pretty much 
in every room and out on the porch too.
It looks good in an old drafty barnhouse
and keeps us warm in the evenings too.

Antique monogrammed horse brasses over a tartan throw.

Have been collecting piles and piles of plaid to sell at the shop this December. Hate to part with it!

Old vintage red plaid lunchbox has faded to orange in the sun and makes a perfect
addition to an autumn grouping in the kitchen.

Fall at the back door here -- plaid blanket included.

Find the Tartan Parade's hitching post below to share your plaid inspirations too

Hi Alison, Oh my, I'm never disappointed when I visit The Polohouse! Gorgeous tartans and a professional look at how to style vignettes. So much gorgeousness in one place. Thank you so much for hosting the Tartan Parade, I was delighted to participate.

Sarah said...

Alison, I could move right in. I love how tartans and plaids are a natural for life at Polohouse. Every vignette is perfection. It's not just for fall or Christmas either. I echo Emily, much gorgeousness in one place and ALL professionally styled. I'm going to pin every image! I'm so glad you wanted to have a parade again. I love a parade, especially a Tartan Parade!

What a great collection of plaid, tartan. The season will be here and these are just proof of how good tradition can be. Wonderful pictures capture the look of tartan.
Hope that you have a wonderful season.

Allison, I love your tartan collection! I personally have tartan all over my house all year long. I love it and it reminds me of my Scottish roots.

Thank you for including me in your Tartan Parade! I am honored to be a part of your blog.

P.S. Have you seen Scott Mecham Woods new tartan line? If not check it out it is fabulous!

Thank you so much for having me.

Mike@Bit About Britain said...

Hi - Denise suggested we paid a visit. Lovely colours! If you haven't already done it, maybe you should think about matching up the tartans to the clans - looks like a site that might be of interest. Very best regards.

Karen said...

One can never have too much plaid, in my opinion. I love your collection of items, always fabulous.
Thanks for hosting this parade!

Michele M./ Finch Rest said...

LOVE all your plaid - it's all amazing. Love your pics, your designs, your collections - so well done.

I have one plaid thing to my name, my vintage Woolrich plaid lap blanket on my wicker porch sorry to disappoint in the plaid department!

BUT - let's talk about plaid wearin' Jamie Fraser the Highlander from Outlander, whoo hoo - now there's me some awesome plaid, just sayin' - whew.

I've had my Plaid post in drafts and then, I saw your party so had to join.

So sad that I didn't get to join your party Alison. Love all of your gorgeous plaid photos! I did a post about plaid tonight and I saw that you had your plaid parade on both Sarah and Sally's blog. Heading to the tub, but I will be back for more plaid pretties!

Decor To Adore said...

We proudly display the Gunn plaid in our family room. I am truly adoring the tartan covered books. Please let me know if you will be selling those. :)

I wanted to let you know that I am giving away a $100 Visa gift card on my blog. You can find the giveaway on Wednesday's post.

Have a wonderful week!
