I feel grown up.
I purchased my first throw blanket.
Are you impressed? 😉
Haha! Seriously, I know it’s not a big deal to most… But to me?? Big Deal.
As resident cheapo in this establishment, I’ve always had issues buying things like this because I felt that they weren’t a necessity. I’ve always admired them, though. I’ve wistfully gazed at gorgeous pics on Pinterest and my favorite blogs and noted these chic throws which, I’ll admit… I pretty much drooled over. Then, I wondered what they cost, ’cause let’s face it. Throw blankets can be pricey.
Time and time again, I’d carry a pretty throw around a store. Let it sit in my cart for an undetermined amount of time as I mulled over whether to part with my precious dough in exchange for this beauteous piece of fabric. And always. I put it back. Returned it to the shelf. The guilt over spending money over something extraneous won out. Every.time.
Now, I’ll admit… I have a few throw blankets. They’re all hand-me-downs though. And none really suit our home as it is now. So, I’ve coveted the newbies. But never allowed myself the pleasure of actually buying one.
I found this throw on clearance for $13 at Target. And I was sold. The perfect color with just enough pattern at a STEAL of a price. Done. It goes swimmingly in our bedroom. The perfect compliment to our freshly painted chair and Target-inspired bench…
I love how throws are like the trays of seating.
Need color? Add a throw.
Need texture? Add a throw.
Need softness?? Add a throw.
Need to camouflage greasy toddler fingerprints?? Add a throw.
A good throw can add style and texture to any room in a very non-permanent, changeable way. Switch it up, leave it be. Whatever floats your boat.
So, I did it. I added a throw. And I’m not looking back.
I. Heart. You. Throw. (kisses)
