Today is St. Augustine's birthday; he was born in 354 CE and died in 430. I don't think I have a tie appropriate for him, so I'm debuting another tie from my father-in-law's collection. This was one of several matching Pendleton® accessories Beth gave her father over twenty years ago. On the Tartan Finder page from the Scotland Shop this pattern appears to be most like either the Lennox Modern or the Macrae Red Modern tartans; if you find a closer match, please let me know! The safety pin symbolizes my solidarity with others who want to guarantee safety and protection to those who are fearful living in our society.
