Hey, throw me a throw!

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.

Until now.

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.

  1. Haha, I love it! Especially as a cover-up for greasy toddler fingerprints! I, too always struggle with buying things new, especially if it’s more than like $10, but it can be so so worth it, especially if you’ve been eyeing it for a while!

    • Exactly! (says the girl who “splurged” with a $13 throw) I’m a little worried, though, because now I just wanna buy a bunch of throws (#createdamonster)!! Heehee!

  2. haha amazing! A throw can make such a difference and what a great steal! I totes keep things in my cart, only to realize how ridiculous the price is and put them back before checking out. I usually head straight to the clearance aisles and try not to look at anything else!

  3. Love it! Throws are a great accessory! And I definitely carry things around the store only to end up putting them back too! Glad to know I’m not crazy and other people do it too 😉

  4. You are so adorable in that last pic! Ha! That is one gorgeous throw! And I love how versatile they are.
