I realize it’s not officially fall yet, but once September hits, do you feel the Fall season upon us?
Do plaid flannel shirts remind you of fishing during fall? In the South, it’s often warm enough for fishing in winter, as well.
I had visions of this table mixed with many plaids, like a grouping of guys in plaid flannel shirts along a riverbank, fishing poles extended.
Wouldn’t this be fun with men’s flannel shirts buttoned over the chair-backs? That’s where my vision of plaids mixed together came into play. As it turned out, HH didn’t have enough flannel shirts for all four chairs, so we’ll stick with only three plaids.
Plaid Dollar Tree tea towels look like gingham check in the picture. They’ve faded from washing over the years.
I stole the tartan dinner plate from my Christmas collection. Can you see the Christmas holly just inside the plaid rim? Ha – sneaky, sneaky!
The table cover is the plaid flannel reverse side of HH’s t-shirt quilt I gave him a couple of years ago for Christmas.
When preparing for a fishing excursion, don’t forget to pack your snacks. When the fish are bitin’, you won’t want to leave for anything.
Handy Builder Dad (HBD) loves fishing.
This Coke is for you, Dad!
Back in the day, there were always bottled Cokes for keeping cool beside the pond.
Stacked tackle boxes give fishing poles some stability.
There are only three poles because HH doesn’t enjoy fishing. But three are perfect for propping.
For stability, tie the poles together with a fish stringer line.
A trip to Wally World for fresh bobbers and hooks is always fun – especially with HBD along.
It seems we have plenty of minnows for bait.
Quick – put on your flannel shirt! Gather your fishing supplies, grab your pole. Let’s go, y’all.
The fish are biting, and times a-wasting!
Does it bother you to mix different plaids together in your decor? Do you think tartan plaids will be a big rage again this winter?
