Plaid Preserves

Plaid certainly catches my eye ... whether it's clothing, doll clothes, or even food. I came across this jar of Mackays Ginger Preserve at an Albertson's store recently. I didn't buy it, which is stupid, because I'm a huge ginger lover. I'm sure I'll pick up a jar next time I'm there. I wish I'd gotten it because right now I have a really bad sore throat, and ginger always makes it feel better.

Daisy Plaid

I loved Daisy Ridley as Rey in The Force Awakens. I found myself relating to her character, just as I had related to Luke's way back in 1977 in A New Hope. When I saw this meme on Facebook, I knew I'd have to post it here because that's just how we Star Wars nerds roll.

Never Enough ...

So, the other day I was wandering around Walmart when something red caught my eye. It was this purse pictured above. There were only two left, and they were on clearance. I rarely buy purses anymore. I have so many as it is. Even still, I hardly ever buy them new. This one was only $7 on clearance, and it's really big, which I love. I think I'll need to iron it before I use it, though. It's a bit wrinkly. 

I do have some plaid purses already, as you can see below. The big one with the green & red plaid came from Disneyland. My mother-in-law gave me that one for Christmas. I love it because it's really big, so I use it a lot when I travel. It's big enough to hold my laptop. However, with the green & red colors, it's a bit Christmasy, so I don't use it all the time. The one on the left was another Walmart find, and the lower one is more of a vintage find from a thrift store.

But yeah, yeah ... I know! How could I pass up another red plaid purse, especially one on clearance? We're talking ME, remember. It's an illness ...

RIP, Mrs. Reagan ...

I saw this dress on Pinterest and it's titled as being a suit Nancy Reagan wore. I haven't been able to find any photographs of her wearing it just yet, but I'm still looking. I am saddened to hear of Nancy's passing this morning, but it makes me happy to think she's with Ronnie again. He was truly the love of her life. Ronald was known to wear plaid many times as well. They will both be sorely missed.

ETA: I found Nancy wearing her red plaid suit on a tribute video from KTLA. Click here to watch it. It's a great tribute to Mrs. Reagan.

Seahawks Plaid

My favorite Seattle Seahawk—Richard Sherman—all decked out in plaid. How great is that? I believe this was part of a commercial or something for Oberto beef jerky. He filmed it with Rob Gronkowski from the New England Patriots, but I cut him out of the picture. He was draped in leopard-print, and none of that fit in here. <snort> I love how the plaid is blue and green ... the colors of the Seahawks.
