Mad for Plaid at Thursday Favorite Things

Merry Christmas! Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am so happy to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and a wonderful group of blogging friends as a co-hostess for this fantastic weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers too! If you are looking to grow your blog, make new friends, and be inspired each week, this is the place to be. *Bloggers: If you would like a chance to be featured, please leave me a comment with the number of your link up. We can’t wait to see what you have to share this week! (If you missed last week’s party you can find it here.???? To get the party started, let’s take a look at what I have been up to recently:



Creating Christmas in the Dining Room

 I have slowly been “creating Christmas” in our home using my favorite eclectic mix of vintage, French-farmhouse and traditional treasures. Yesterday I shared a first look at our dining room all dressed up for the season. I may not have all of the rest of our home decorated simply because I never want to leave the dining room!


I do hope you will hop over to check it out after partying here today. I am honored to be part of a fabulous group of 30 bloggers who are all sharing Christmas home decor inspiration as part of the fall home tours hosted by Marty of A Stroll Through Life.

I am starting to gather ideas for our family room make over in late winter/early spring. I am looking the perfect camel colored leather sofa sectional from an affordable furniture store. I hope to achieve an overall rustic-farmhouse aesthetic with traditional touches including lots of plaid accents!

    Hi Amber! Definitely mad for plaid here – it’s just what I want to wear in fall and winter, and it never falls from favor. Thanks a million for both hosting and featuring my post and photo – so happy to see it shared. I’m sharing holiday themed stories today at #65, #67, and #68 covering a pistachio cookie I developed that is a crinkle style and gluten free, decor inspiration from a farmhouse style shop, and smart dog gift ideas paired with darling quotes. Would love to hear how your are balancing the new job with the blogging – still looking for one myself. 🙂 Hope you enjoy and hope you stay gentle with yourself this week. Peace to you right where you are.

    Oh, Amber, this week’s theme of plaid has me very excited, and not just because you’ve featured my Black Watch Tartan as a bonus! The more plaids the better, I say, whether it’s mixing and matching fashion or home decor. There are so many out there, and at so many price points, it can be so easy to add a little plaid flair in one’s cache. Thank you for all these enticing links that lead to satisfying my never-ending love of the tartans.
    This week I’ve opened our loft in its city style Christmas. I’m guest #89 this week. 🙂

    Thank you for hosting! This is what I featured the week of 12-2 to 12-6 on my blog. On Tuesday morning were Peppermint and Chocolate Mousse Bars. Wednesday was my Grasshopper Thin Mint Cheesecake. And wrapping up the second week of Christmas baking is a decadent Cherpumple Cake. Enjoy!

    Happy Christmas time to you, Amber!!! I will check out your wonderful posts (been trying to catch up as time allows), thank you. Today I am sharing just one post (#146) ~ Meet Judith and the Home of Botanic Bleu. Cindy of Country Road 407, Laura of Decor to Adore and I went out to visit Judith last weekend at her annual Christmas event/sale. Lots of fun, great gifts/ideas and gardens and home for me! (My first time visiting.)

    Thank you for hosting and I love your dining room with its sweet Christmas tree,
