Who doesn't love a throw blanket? They have so many uses: picnics, forts, tablecloths, and the more obvious but no less glorious, warmth!! Also they can pull a room together and make a couch or chair look 100% more inviting. The downside is they can really break the bank, so you can imagine how thrilled I was (and still am!) to find this beauty at a By-the-Pound Goodwill down in Oklahoma City when we were there for Cedric and Ashley's wedding! it cost me approximately seventy-five cents, or maybe a dollar. Needless to say, this being Chicago, it gets used daily.
