love...tartan & mauchline ware

My friend has this amazing collection of Mauchline ware. For Issue 8 of my art magazine Pasticcio Quartz we did a article on the history of Tartan and Mauchline Ware.  I thought I would share with you some of those wonderful pieces.  I love a good plaid and tartan... they just make me happy.
