Saturday Farm Photo: Another Vintage Double Blanket

Vintage double blanket - FarmgirlFare.com
There's nothing better for a new vintage treasure than drying in the fresh air.

Remember that vintage blanket mystery you helped me solve a while back? It turns out my snuggly score was a double blanket—and a few months ago I found another one.

It's not nearly as soft as that beautiful blue one (which I was thrilled to find for just $7) and it has some really worn spots and a few bleached out areas along the edge (it's been well loved!), but I couldn't resist the wonderful pattern and colors—and of course the fabulous size. It was a $26 splurge (I didn't really need another blanket) that I plan to enjoy for years.

Double blankets don't work very well on king size beds (too long one way, too short the other), but they sure are nice for cozying up on the couch, especially with someone you love. Let's hear it for the season of snuggling!

More vintage? Here.
More laundry line? Here.
More Mr. Midnight? Here.

  4. It may be worn, but it is beautiful. I was pretty intrigued when you wrote about the first find - how cool to find another one. I'd never heard of 'double blankets' before you wrote about them. Always learn something new and interning at your site. Thank you ( always!) for sharing with us.

  5. I need to find a place to put up a clothes line. But then knowing me I'd plant grapevines or muscadines on it and defeat the purpose of it.
