|vintage crocheted blankets|
Two of them are pretty big, and the colours are an odd old mix - not ones I'd ever really think about putting together, but they work for me in a bright and cheery, retro, 70's kind of way.
The pink and orange look toned down on the one below - they're both almost fluorescent, like the colours of highlighter pens. Obviously a bit too bright for my camera!
The blankets all have that musty, shut away in a cupboard/box for years smell - and they deserve to be given a new lease of life and some proper lovin'. But that mightn't be with me, because we don't have anywhere obvious to put them and they should be on show, not tucked away again.
So I'll probably clean them up and sell them on to a good home. Or maybe..keep one?
