Happy weekend! Today I wanted to share a recent thrift store purchase of a white crocheted throw and some charcoal pillow covers that I sewed.
This new white crocheted throw was a $2.50 find at our local store. It is a small thrift store but I like to stop by to see if they have the items on my regular 'search' list (canning jars, wool blankets, ironstone etc.) This throw is quite large and still had a hand written tag with a length of extra yarn attached. Lucky for me it was also half off linens day (reg. $5.)
With it being Fall and with winter approaching I wanted to add some darker and warmer-feeling pieces to our living room. My oldest sister gave me this charcoal grey suiting fabric that has a lovely texture. I sewed some simple pillow covers for a pair of pillows on our living room couch. (The buffalo plaid pillow covers are IKEA, the grey plaid are RL napkins sewed into pillows, and the others I hand painted on heavy muslin.)
Did I mention how soft and big this lovely blanket is?!
Nice and wide and long enough to cover head to toes and then some. I washed the throw in hot water, dried it in the dryer and it seems even softer now. I can't even buy a single ball of wool for that price either. L o v e !
I took advantage of the sun this morning to take way too many photos ;) of our Fall living room. I will be sharing a full tour soon. I wanted to wait until I added wood planks to our stand in coffee table but I decided I need to finish other projects first.
It is a sunny and very cool Fall day here in southern Ontario. The temps dipped below 0 Celcius (32 F) overnight and this morning, with a high of 5 C (41 F) this afternoon. If you can call that a high, We even had some wet flurries. Don't want to be saying that four letter S*** word quite yet but there was accumulation north of us overnight and this morning. I'm happy to have another warm throw if I feel the need for some snuggle time. Hope you have a great day and weekend. I will be back soon with more photos of our Fall living room.
