Tartan: In Great Britain, this is a fabric pattern (known as plaid in the US) that particular colors and band width are associated with family groups. I have 2 family tartans – the Hanna and the MacFie.
Travel : No surprise here, eh? Doesn’t matter if it’s to another county… or another country. “Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled.” “We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”
Thistle: A favorite flower. Not only are they pretty, they smell great too.
Tactile: I like to feel things. I run my fingers across fabrics, touch the produce, play with the babies’ hair, dig into sand… My grandmother was like that too. And Little Bird seems to be a ‘toucher’ too.
Tribal: I find certain cultural designs and patterns beautiful and compelling. Pacific Northwest, Samoan, Pict, and Maori.
Teal: One of my favorite colors – both to wear and to use in my home.
Thumbelina: My baby doll. She’s had half her hair loved off, had many stuffing surgeries and has a few stray marks but she was much loved. She sits on my childhood memory shelf with Gruff Goat and my “Little Brown Puppy” book.
Tango: I love watching the dancers doing the tango. It’s such an incredible dance.
Tai Chi: My favorite workout. It’s actually a form of martial art done in with precise movements… done slowly it improves your balance and gives you great stretches. Don’t quickly it is a great aerobic.
Thrifty: I like getting a good deal. Dad says I can “sniff out a bargain”.
