Time to get the blankets out for the winter time weather! Even here in Florida! It’s what we consider COLD here today! Only in the high 50s with a HIGH wind!
My girlfriend, Marfi came up with this idea to do posts every week in November with a book and a blanket. Her blog is HERE and she’s even having a giveaway this week.
I bought this Bob Timberlake ‘Cardinal’ throw at a consignment shop a couple of years ago and it’s perfect to snuggle up with.
I got the book at a thrift store awhile back and I’m going to start reading it this week. I love this author so I know I’ll enjoy it.
And recently I found another Matt and Shari book. I was thrilled! Their show Room by Room was my very favorite program when I first started watching HGTV. I wish they had more decorating and craft shows now, don’t you?
This looks like a cute project. So many of their ideas are still popular and in style.
I’m joining Thrifty Things Friday!
Also Katherine’s Corner,
Jann for Share Your Cup
and Home Sweet Home.
Do you have a favorite throw
or lap quilt for the winter time season?
I don’t know if anyone will come back to look at this update but I really wanted to add some of the names of the HGTV shows that were mentioned in the comments. It seems like we ALL miss the decorating and craft shows that made HGTV so popular in the beginning. It would be great if they brought these back…shows like Room by Room, Carol Duval, Kitty Bartholomew, Decorating Cents with Joan Steffend, Peter Walsh, and ' Aleene's creative living'.
Dorothy’s comment I so agree with, “I miss Carole Duval and her Christmas Specials!”
And one more that I just thought of, Christopher Lowell. I learned a lot from his show!
And I liked Lynette Jennings, too, Becky! She was such a beautiful lady with style.
Any others that you can think of?
Wouldn’t it be great if HGTV heard us?
