A little over a year ago, we received a wonderful wedding gift from my amazing friend Lindsey. It was a Pottery Barn blanket that was cable knit on the outside, and faux sheepskin on the inside.
A seemingly simple obsession, yes. But in a word, this blanket is great. Amazing. Cuddly. Cozy.
This blanket has been with us for over a year now, and it is our absolute favorite when it’s chilly and we need to add a layer of warmth. We were constantly shuttling it from the house in Greenville, SC to the cabin in Tiger, GA, and back again.
We love it so much, we even brought it on our cross country road trip/move to Alaska. Yeah, we really love it.
Since being up here in Alaska, the temperature is a bit cooler than we had in the south, so we’ve been toting our blanket all over the house.
We fight over it in the bedroom.
I curl up under it in my reading/neighbor-stalking chair.
And we utilize it during our Arrested Development marathons (which happens most nights of the week).
So you can imagine my delight when Matt asked me to ‘get a few more’ of this amazing blanket. I’ve added it to my pottery barn shopping cart several times over the past year, but I thought Matt would kill me if I ever bought them. Right away I went to the site and ordered! (By the way, the lack of Pottery Barn’s in Anchorage is atrocious. Where am I supposed to go and covet beautiful furnishings and home decor?!)
To my delight, Pottery Barn gave me free shipping (which is great, because the only other places I’ve gotten free shipping to Alaska from is Nordstrom and Amazon Prime). They’re also running a deal where if you sign up for their emails, you can get 10% off of an online purchase.
I purchased two: the Grey colour and the Blue colour. I can’t wait to put one in each of the spots where they’re constantly being relocated! Hopefully, this will also help the original last longer, since we no longer have to fight over it!
Sadly, I am not a Pottery Barn spokesperson. I wish I were, since so much of my house is covered in it; I’m just a major fan of their classic looks.
What simple pleasures are you obsessed with? Any other amazing blankets I should know about out there?
