I’m obsessed with Outlander, and I’m reading the books at the same time as I’m watching the series. I finally got caught up on Season Three last night (OMG the last scene!). Watching that show you see so much tartan in the scenes filmed in Scotland, it makes me want to wear more tartan coats and scarves in winter.
Plaid and tartan are iconic textiles that have been around for centuries. Many people use “plaid” and “tartan” interchangeably but that’s only half correct. All tartans are plaid, but not all plaids are tartan.
There’s been a chill in the air for a few days and I was inspired to go hunting for a warm plaid blanket (I bought this one) for my reading chair. What’s more enticing than the casually draped plaid blanket? Every home needs one! It’s handy to keep one in the trunk for football games or impromptu picnics.
Stay cozy friends :)
