As some of you may remember, plaid is my favorite color, and, no surprise, I’m not alone. “Plaid Day” is May 18th, but there’s a new celebration of plaid as well. Plaiddurday is the first Friday of every October, so Plaidurday this year is October 3, 2014. Since I love plaid, I figure I might just celebrate both. It is a holiday, right?
Plaid Day, May 18th, is the day where the sheer magnificence and general wonderfulness of plaid is celebrated around the world. Plaid Day is celebrated by wearing plaid on your person. Those who refuse to adorn themselves in the Sacred Flannel are duly sacrificed. Serious Plaidies indulge in tribal plaid face paint and the ceremonial burning of a kilt. Common phrases used on Plaid Day include, “I’m plaid with that,” “You’re TOTALLY plaiding today,” and “That’s SO plaid.”
I used to want to collect Tartanware. After spotting so few pieces at the antique stores I frequented, and noticing the prices, I decided I would do without a collection.
I saved the best for last…an old Elle Decor feature on Glen Feshie Lodge. Never did so much plaid look so great!
I realize plaid isn’t for everyone, especially today with our Scandinavian influenced neutral palate with lots of gray and weather worn woods, but a room like this wins my heart every time.
