Crocheted Throw

So interesting how different decades value different things. Just a few years ago, crocheted things were so 'granny,' and that carried a negative connotation of dark, musty rooms and doilies on furniture.

Today at any upsale linens shop or major department store you can buy chenille throws, crocheted or knitted throws, and some will set you back quite a few bucks. Throws are comfort, luxury, home. One of my friends once gave me a beautiful throw from Z Gallerie ($50) that she said I could wrap myself up in and it would remind me of her. She gave one to each of her closest friends, inspired after her mom passed away and had recently given her a giftcard...so she bought a throw and said every time she snuddles within it, it's as if her mom is giving her a hug. I love that metaphor.

I got this lovely handmade peppermint throw at the Salvation Army for $2.50. I keep walking by it and just swooning. It is in absolutely perfect condition.
