Royal Stewart Tartan: black and red

My grandmother gave me this Royal Stewart scarf with matching gloves in the 60s. She also gave me the same set in black and white plaid. Made in Germany.

We had another snow storm last night. The wind was howling outside my window louder than the coyotes. The weather was not fit for man nor beast. Those are coyote paw prints in the snow to my right. Seriously, we see them sometimes, and we hear them!

In the daylight, the wind had died and the sun was shining in all its glory!

      Thank you very much Ivana! I have never seen tartan gloves (lots of scarves, but never gloves). My mom taught me to mend and I have had to do some sewing because there were a couple of worn spots. 😦

      Happy March!

      ❤ carmen

    We knew we couldn’t escape our winter without one blizzard.

    That beautiful! You look absolutely wonderful with your outfit in black and red, with plaid pattern. I love to see you dressed in red, then white, it’s your favorite color, which suits you best. Well, this is not entirely true, any color suits you, why you are always beautiful, always wonderful. How wonderful to see that smile and that so delicate and soft pink skin. Carmen, my queen of Capri, my snow queen, my queen …

      Thank you so much my royal friend Josep-Maria! It’s a colourful world! The cold air and wind can be very hard on skin. I didn’t stay out too long. You have been in the mountains perhaps?

      Your Snow Queen in winter and Queen of Capri in summer 🙂

    It looks beautiful, so do you. I love snow on trees and walks, not so much on the road. Winter has its charm. But who needs a storm though. Good to see the sun shining!
