an ode to blankets.

I know I'm not alone in my love for blankets. 

It's a quest for ultimate comfort. Not just physical comfort, but that cosy and safe feeling you get inside when you're wrapped up in a thick wool blanket.

It's a shield from the cold, as well as the scary outside world. 

Blankets make your bed more interesting - adding more colour or texture. They are an extra heavy layer when it's -5ºC and your loft room isn't very well insulated. They are the perfect thing to grab in the middle of the night if you need to pop downstairs. 

A thin cotton blanket is amazing this time of year too - when it's too hot to sleep under a duvet, but you feel exposed without any sort of cover. 

Obviously, a blanket is the perfect accompaniment to a picnic, or to the beach. If your outdoor pursuits continue into the evening, you can wrap up your bare legs.

Once, I lay on a blanket atop a hill, watching a meteor shower with good friends, tea & muffins. 

A blanket is something soft and warm to touch when everything else feels so hard and cold.

  3. The photos are just too cute! I love reading posts like this, as I get to know the blogger a little bit better, and it's like you're sharing something sweet with me. My grandma used to knit blankets, and now every time I see a chucky and colourful blanket I think of her. I feel like each one has a different smell to them as well... xxx

  7. I'm always wrapped up in a blanket, whether it's -10 degrees or 26 degrees! x
