Once again I found myself in a thrift store on a ridiculously hot day. This time is was 94º in the shade. On my first pass of the textiles I saw it.
A four point green and black Hudson's Bay blanket in perfect shape. I am currently in the throes of a Kelly Green obsession and this is like a crown jewel for my hoarder's nest. So again, I waited in the long line of cranky people with my 100% wool treasure and happily forked over the low price, even for a thrift store, of $7.99.
I got it home, washed it in cold water and hung it out to dry, with the heat, it was dry in an hour. It's super disgusting in Los Angeles right now, trust. By the size of the label and the wording I can date it between 1950 and 1970.
I can't wait for winter. I will be one super-warm lady.
