Thrift store Find - Blankets

There hasn't been one of these for a while which is not to say that I haven't been thrifting I just haven't gotten around to taking photos. When I was little someone gave me a coin collection and by default I became a coin collector as various relatives gave me their foreign currency but it wasn't really my thing. Since then I've not really dedicated myself to collecting much other art really, well that was then. Blankets are my new thing I can't resist a good color scheme and they are so practical, they envelop you like a good hug and brighten up a room. I recently stumbled upon the chevron patterned blanket and it was love at first sight. It was then that I knew blankets was my thing. They are by and large 100% wool or a mix of natural fibers. No acrylic in this collection. It's not the smallest most compact item to collect but at least it has a purpose and I can happily state that I have used them all. I just can't imagine when a blanket would be surplus to requirements ?
