I keep telling myself, "Enough with the owls already!" But then I see another adorable, wise, sweet owl face on some kind of home décor item and I simply cannot resist. Like this owl pillow that I found at Goodwill on my last thrifting outing with my sister. I mean, come on, isn't it so cute? I also picked up this crocheted granny blanket. I have about a bazillion blankets already, but this was such a cold winter I developed an even fonder attachment to blankets of all sizes and types. (My sister just gave me an electric throw blanket and I'm in Heaven about it!)
A lot of times I pass up blankets and pillows at the thrift stores because I'm a bit of a germaphobe. But this blanket appeared to be in awesome condition. I washed it on the gentle cycle in the washer when I got home. I thought I would scrub the pillow a bit with some cleaner too and hope it doesn't ruin it.
The pillow was $4 and the blanket $6, but I didn't pay that much for either one, I don't think. As I said last week the most kind Goodwill lady ever marked just about every item down without even discussing it. I ended up paying $16 for items that added up to $23.
Spring seems to be on the way now and I don't expect to need so many blankets. But I'm also thinking a pile of granny blankets will be great to take out to the deck once outdoor entertaining season begins. Which means, yes, I'll probably look to buy more!
Are you a collector of blankets and/or pillows?
