Lots of us can relate to Martin’s column

In response to Susan Martin’s article in the Oct. 11 News, “A houndstooth habit – here, there and everywhere,” I totally agree. My fondness for houndstooth borders on the ridiculous, too. It is my favorite pattern by far. I’ve owned many purses, wallets, jackets and scarves in this pattern. Recently, I spotted houndstooth throw pillows in a local store. I had to refrain from buying them because they wouldn’t have matched anything.

I think part of the reason I love autumn is because the houndstooth pattern comes around again. I say to Martin: Go buy a new houndstooth umbrella and a coat, too. Enjoy the art of houndstooth and polka dots. They’re both classic and timeless and should be enjoyed.
