A Tartan Kind of Morning

Good morning all!  
Decidedly, this is my favorite spot in the house for a cup of morning coffee.

Mornings here are still a bit nippy so I've been keeping a large tartan shawl that doubles as a throw over my favorite chair. 

I've had National Tartan Day on my mind for a few weeks now and it is quickly winding down to the day itself, April 6th.  I decided to spend a little morning time perusing through my collection of Scottish clan books.

I figured I may as well indulge my part Scottish, tartan loving self and have my coffee in what I think is a fitting cup and saucer.

And while I'm at, I'll tuck a few pieces of my Mother in laws homemade biscotti (which is the bomb, btw) into this Scottish butter dish....a perfect fit! 
 Note to self:  vintage butter dishes make adorable biscotti holders and would be great for gifting!

Mmmm...a yummy combination!

I think my impromptu 'Scottish' themed morning is going to be a nice one, and I have needed it for a looooong time.

 Now, I'll settle in with a sip, a dunk and a good read.

 I hope you have a lovely morning!



  1. What a lovely idea! Thanks for the heads up about National Tartan Day. ;-)
    I passed up some wonderful pieces of tartan ware at Round Top this past week. I so wanted to add to my collection, but prices were high and other things took priority. I did come home with a special transfer ware rolling pin. I hope to share about my find soon. Keep enjoying your cozy mornings.

  2. Hi Nancy! Oh, what a beautiful spot! I love everything about it and it looks so homey and comfy! Your throw looks so nice. Hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. That was very cosy! I was looking at my collection of tartan tea cups and thinking of the 6th. Perhaps I'll be organised enough to have something ready!

  4. So excited to learn there is a tartan day! Being Elliott's we need to celebrate. Yay!

  5. I frequently go to your blog to look at this spot in your photos! It shouts English Cottage, the style I love!! Such a beautiful room!!

  6. Your house is so beautiful
    So traditional which I love

  7. Love your style Nancy! Thanks for sharing at HSH!
