A first for my blog and something I would love to continue….a reader, (and more importantly a long time personal friend) of nenasnotes sent me photos of her Tartanware Collection, which is amazing. I asked if I could share the photos along with her comments on the collection, here you go!

From Lawrie Weed…

“As my father was of Sottish heritage it was the emphasis to start the collection which is about 40 years old. Most items are related to sewing, thimbles, needle cases, bobbins, etc. I have 22 napkin holders all different tartans. Ralph Lauren started having tartenware for his stores and the prices escalated dramatically so the average collector was hard pressed to continue finding the rare and wonderful pieces. My favorite pieces are a photo album and an Hourglass.”

Lawrie, thank you SO much for sharing your very special Tartanware Collection for us to enjoy!

    A beautiful collection from Lawrie’s home. Do I detect a Buchanan tartan piece? I wish I had collected them when we lived abroad. I seemed to collect everything else! Ha! Thank you again Nena for your most informative blog and photos !
