Ben watching The Tartan Parade


Ben is sending lots of love and a picnic to share with Sadie
because Aunt Sarah @ Hyacinths For The Soul
 is hosting The Tartan Parade!

We're also visiting with the Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays,
after all it's not every day a chap gets to wear plaid!
And..........
since the letter T is centre stage at Mrs Matlock's Aphabe-Thursday this week
we're joining the party there too.

  1. What a great shot! I could just sit down right beside Ben with a good book and while away the afternoon!

  2. Oh, Maggie. This is too cute for words. Sadie would love to be sitting right there beside Mr. Ben taking it all in or perhaps just napping in the sun.
    Thanks for joining the parade. Mr. Linky will be up at 1AM Sunday.

  4. Hi Maggie, Ben just looks like the perfect model dog! He is adorable in his tartan scarf relaxing on that blanket! Did he eat everything in the picnic basket? I know I would never be able to leave my Nellie near an open basket! Happy Tartan Day! Linda
