Friday Love

Today I've got a twofer for ya:

This Friday Love segment is pretty short and sweet. And cozy. I love love love the herringbone pattern. I think of it as the older sister, (or brother), to the trending chevron patter, (the zig-zag), but a far cry from boring. 

And I love throws blankets! With morning temps starting in the high 40s, low 50s, I've already been enjoying my morning coffee with a soft blanket over my shoulders, (while my kids sit quietly and read books as they wait patiently for their breakfast...hah! Okay, so the morning cup of coffee isn't as quiet and tranquil as I made it seem...but I do walk around with a throw draped around me, even as I make breakfast!)

The combination of this delightful pattern on a warm, soft blanket is perfection. The fun thing about throws is that while you aren't using them they are beautiful decorating accessories! Pull one over a bed in the winter, keep a few draped or folded over sofas and armchairs, or neatly stacked in a visible shelf, cubby or basket. Because of their versatility, and in my personal experience, frequent use, I think it is worth investing in a quality throw that is as durable as it is beautiful.

The one above and the one below are out of my price range, reaching over $200. But how lovely they are...

For some more affordable options under $25 but just as soft and pretty, (if not more so)...

Have yourselves a cozy weekend!
