I am talking about blankets today! I think it is interesting that the last three days have been about things…remember this is randomly pulled out of my list of twenty-five items. I am not totally shallow and I’ m bound to be thankfull for something deep and emotional here soon! Check in with my original post here.
I’m not a cold kinda gal. I appreciate fall now as an adult, but it took me a long time. Autumn is now my favorite season, but for most of my life when I thought about Autumn all I could think about is cold being on the way.
While I cannot say I love being cold, I can totally admit that I am in love with blankets! I adore soft blankets that make me so cozy and overheated at times. On our bed we have a sheet and a comforter. At the beginning of October I pulled out my Disney blanket and a huge quilt.
My Disney blanket is one of the softest ever and brings me great memories of our last trip when I bought it. It has Cinderella’s Castle all lite up in purple..ahhh. This is the blanket I put under my sheet so it touches the skin.
My quilt is one that my dad got at an estate sale last year. It is big and bulky and I love the fact that it is old and has lived a long life of warming people (although I did wash it before using it!). This blanket goes on top of my comforter, folded in half. Hubby doesn’t care for my added blankets and I must say my side of the bed is a bit bulky. The hazard of having a pile of blankets is that sometimes they fall on the floor and can trip people on the way to the bathroom. Oops.
Blankets are home to me. Cuddled up reading in a blanket is like Heaven on Earth. It doesn’t get any better unless I have my chai with me.
