There is nothing better than to snuggle under a soft afghan when the rain (or snow) is falling outside.

Or, to curl up under one around the backyard firepit.

Or, to layer another one on top of the bed for those extra cool nights.

I have knitted and crocheted blankets over the years…it’s time consuming.

afghans7

A definite labor of love.

When I come across these beautiful works of art for $4.99 at the thrift stores I cannot pass them up.

That striped one was the first afghan I ever thrifted.

The “one big granny” square above was found on “black friday” two years ago. The only store you will find me in on Black Friday is a thrift store!

This gorgeous afghan is made to fit on a twin sized bed…208 squares…that’s an enormous amount of love.

home is…{31 days} thrifted afghans are perfect for fall.

    I am a big fan of these stores too, my weakness is the beautiful crochet doilies and any embroidery, just can’t resist it! what a lovely collection of blankets! My Nanna used to knit those for all the family, I used to imagine there was love in every stitch!
