Thrifting.

After whining on about how expensive thrift store blankets were getting and how the colours were all bored-rigid brown checks, I have to take it back. This queen-sized pure wool bright red blanket was discovered hiding away behind all it’s smaller, uglier cousins at Savemart today. With a very tiny price tag because of the frayed satin binding and a couple of tiny moth holes near the edge. Which don’t matter because I’m going to cut it up anyway.

And just as a final shut-upa-ya-face, there was a large piece of barkcloth covered in red tulips and carnations to match the lovely blanket. Bark cloth. Yep, that’s me, not saying anything…
