National Plaid Day Party

Hey everyone! I love plaid and when I heard there would be a Tartan Parade for National Plaid Day I wanted to join in! Imagine my surprise when I realized that 95% of the plaid I have are Christmas linens... I did find this great Cannon Falls plate that was given to me loaded with wings for a football party:@)

And speaking of food, I'd also like to contribute...

Pigs in a blanket!!!
 Earl says...
"Oh the humiliation...
I'm not coming out until she changes the blog name to Happier Than A Chicken On A June Bug.
Let's see how the feathers fly during those photo shoots..."
 Have a happy day:@)

  1. Hello,
    oh oh, Earl in Love! So cute the two under the blanket. I adore tartan patternd but alas, I have really not one piece with that pattern except an old shortbread tin. So I can't participate on this fun. But I love to see your post. I hope you will not change your blog name. Nothing is more happy than a pig in the mud.
    Best greetings, Johanna

    I'm with you Earl. She's gone over the top. I would like to know, however, who is snuggled under that plaid blanket with you.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  9. How sweet to see Earl with his date cuddling under the plaid throw.
    Now that the weather has turned chillier here in Normandyr Ben (my cocker spaniel) is planning on doing something similar when the Tartan Parade begins.

  13. Oh Earl! I never heard of a plaid day! I don't have much around the house that is for sure. Don't think there is much purple plaid made!!!

    BTW - I have been waiting for some of those brown jelly beans you mentioned!!! Ha Ha.

  14. Very clever! Took me hours rummaging in the basement to find something plaid, and here you do it in 10 seconds!
    That Earl, sure steals the bacon, I mean the show!

  15. Is Earl in love? Or is that a spare Earl???

  16. Has Earl been cloned? Dolly the cloned sheep is in the museum in Edinburgh--I saw her there! Tell us more about the "friend!" And who ate all the wings? Were they delicious? Most of my plaid is very wintery too--I really had to stretch looking for something seasonally appropriate! Linda

  20. Lynn, I'm still laughing out loud on this one. My husband is asking what I'm reading. ;-)
    I knew Earl would get in the show. He's such a good sport! Great plate, too. Now you'll have all the plaid and fly fishing enthusiast searching for these plates. Wait till Delores sees these. LOL
    Thanks for joining the parade. ~ Sarah
