crocheted granny blanket

For quite some time now, I’ve wanted a vintage crocheted granny blanket. I finally found just the right one at a favorite local thrift and vintage shop, Village Merchants. The colors are perfect for my living room–lots of yellows, oranges, and browns with touches of pink, red, and blue.

I washed my found treasure in cold water on the delicate cycle in the washing machine and hung it out in the October sun to dry. That night I was already snuggled up underneath it on the sofa. It looks as wonderful as I imagined it would hung over the sofa arm.

It also looks really cute draped over the back of the sofa.

I could also see this blanket at the foot of my bed some day. How about you? Have you found any great thrifted treasures lately?
