Caledonia - Highlander Transferware & Entryway Dressed for National Tartan Day!

 If you are of Scottish ancestry, as were half of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, simply a lover all things tartan, or as I am; are both,  then it's time to get your tartan on!    Tomorrow, April 6th, is National Tartan Day which commemorates the Scottish Declaration of Independence (The Declaration of Arbroath 1320), which is said to have been unequalled to in its eloquent plea for liberty of man and from which the American Declaration of Independence was modeled on. National Tartan Day is a day of recognizing the many achievements of Americans of Scottish descent. I've put together a tartan vignette on the entry table. Let's take a closer look, shall we?   This red tartan tole planter has black bamboo legs and hand painted roses with gold accents.   I found this on one of our antique jaunts a few months back- and though I bought it to resale, I think I'm going to have to enjoy it at my house a little before I put it in the shop.
