National Tartan Day...

April 6th is National Tartan Day, a celebration of Scottish Heritage!  Being of Scottish heritage myself, I thought I'd share a few of my Scottish and tartan-inspired goodies...













Slainte! (Health!)


Until next time...

  17. Love your Scottish Collectibles! I used to be quite enamored with Mary Queen of Scots when I was in high school - I read everything I could find on her and loved that movie with Vanessa Redgrave and Glenda Jackson.
