    Michele,

    This is a fabulous post about one of my favorite things, plaid! You are so sweet to have mentioned me and to have shared my pups! They love their down Ralph Lauren plaid blankets. I cannot wait to check out your plaid links, I might need that t-shirt with the plaid and leopard trees!

    Hi Michele,
    Thanks for sharing Chris Tomlin’s Noel. It’s so powerful and wonderful!!! I love plaid bows on wreaths and plaid dinner napkins and that adorable wiener dog🙂

    I love plaid or buffalo check at this time of year. I just bought a set of pjs for my visit to my daughters this
    Christmas. They are so soft! I think you’ll find me, enjoying a glass of wine in the evening and coffee in hand in the morning, wearing my plaid pjs. 😉

    My front porch is all decked out in red plaid wicker chair cushions and a red/black buffalo check doormat. A lovely red lantern, white skates with red laces and a berry wreath complete the look. Oh, and my raspberry red door is the perfect accompaniment. But, inside I’m decorating in white and gold this year. I plan on keeping it simple if I can restrain myself from buying every cute thing I see.

    I enjoyed Noel sung by this young lady but still prefer the classic version.

      I absolutely love the sound of your front porch – oh my – those are beautiful choices, and I can only imagine how welcoming it must be. I need to get moving on my own decor plans for the holidays! Thanks so much for playing along. xox
