Most of you know how obsessed Ian and are with Pendleton, Ian has a huge collection that he's always adding to. This blanket was a Christmas gift from his grandma, we had been wanting one for over a year now, which is why I'm devoting an entire post to a blanket... As much of a frugal, thrifty girl that I am, I like adding quality timeless items that I know we'll have forever and can pass down one day. One of my favorite things at my mother's house is this tiny broom closet in the hallway with shelves of extra blankets that we dove into on cold nights or when we watched a movie or had house guests. My favorites were a wool, almost neon, bright, plaid blanket and a striped afghan.
I'm the kind of person that moves into a new place and the next day every box is unpacked, the walls are painted and the home is decorated. But I think what's more fun that having a totally put together place is the process of adding along the way. As we enter our second year living in this apartment a big lesson I've learned with decorating is that some of the best things are built over time, collected through the years.
