Just because I’m an adult, doesn’t mean I can’t have a blankie — especially when it’s a billion below zero and I’m freezing my buns off with a fixed thermostat, no pajamas and no heating pad (or boy) to keep me warm.
Although the greenest move in this situation would be to go on the hunt for an old quilt at a thrift store or ask friends if they’ve got an extra Bay blanket lying around their cottage, my mother recently took the initiative and got me a nice new bamboo throw. Don’t be too hard on her — she’s managed to furnish my house entirely with used furniture!
It’s from House and Home‘s new eco collection (which isn’t online, for some reason, but can be found in local department stores) and is dark chocolate brown, which already makes me feel warm; it’s super soft, too. I can use it as an extra layer while reading or watching a movie on the couch, or toss it over my duvet on super-crazy-cold nights.
But if it gets to the point where I need two blankies, I’m definitely going all the way and making a quilt out of old sweaters, extra bed linens or some of my used handkerchiefs. Actually wait, that’s just gross.
