Making a Warm Entrance

I almost didn’t even look at the price tag of this wool blanket  when I happened upon it at a local antique shop.  I just figured it was out of my price range.  It was Tartan plaid afterall. I decided to entertain myself and nonchalantly check the tag.  When I saw $12, I had to take a second look to make sure I wasn’t missing a zero or transposing a number.

I almost gasped when I realized it was truly only $12, but then thought better of it.  I didn’t want to draw any attention to my amazing find.

I quietly and calmy put it in my arms and walked straight to the register.

    Isn’t it great when we find amazing bargains for wonderful old things..I found my old Oxford cupboard (similar to Hoosier) at a goodwill store years ago..when I read the $50.00 price tag I almost tripped and fell trying to get to the counter to pay for your beautiful blanket Mary!!

    Hi Mary, your photo drew me right to your front door. Love the red plaid blanket on the white chair and the basket of greenery. Beautiful and welcoming. Blessings, Pamela (next door in New Brunswick) :)
