Vignettes at Tartan Terrace

Today I'm going over to Alison's linky party at The Polohouse.  This party is about showcasing our vignettes, and oh dear, do I have lots of them cluttering up decorating my house. 

I have this tray in my kitchen.  Can you tell which plant isn't real?  (Yes, it's the one that looks healthy.)

I made this frame after my mother dropped a whole stack of Blue Willow plates.  She was going to throw them away, but I had heard of using broken china for projects, and voila! this is what I made.  Aren't my little boys just too cute?  It's hard to believe that they're all grown up now. 

Love the feathers.

A bird in hand….

Love my bat!

I believe that a person can never have too many plaid picnic accoutremonts .  

Thanks for visiting Tartan Terrace.  Be sure to visit The Polohouse to see more vignettes.


  1. Hi there, I'm visiting from The Polohouse. Your vignettes are lovely and I love the tartan items you've collected. Great post. Blessings, Pamela

    1. Thanks, Pamela. I have so many tartan items (hence the name of my blog) that I could do a whole month's worth of posts about them. I'm holding myself back because I don't want to scare anyone off. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love that frame you made with the Blue Willow! Great little vignettes all around!

    Stopping by via your link on The Polohouse.

  3. I love the blue willow frame too! My grandmother used to tell me the story of the forbidden love that the china pattern tells when I was little and would sit on her lap. She used a heavy ironstone version, the kind with a separated plate, which I loved bc even to this day I don't love it when my food mixes!!! Ha!

    I am crazy for your tartan books and pieces, dear kindred spirit and friend of mine!!! Thanks for sharing and cannot wait to see even MORE!

    Thanks for linking up! You did it! Yay!

  4. Hey friend!
    Thinking of you today as I write my post for the Tartan Parade which starts tomorrow. Hope you can come by and link up a post on something you can share with us.... plaid or tartan-related!!??
    After all... you ARE Tartan Terrace!
    See you there I hope.
    This one lasts for four days.

  5. Kathy, can't believe I missed this last year. Love the frame you made. I saved broken chards for years, but true to form I never got around to doing anything with them. Would love to see more of your tartan and vignettes. Very inspiring!
