tonight is chilly. i’ve been riding my bike a lot this week and tonight biking back home after a late class, there was a definite wintertime chill in the air. it’s been a bit of a stressful week around this old brain of mine–deadlines, final projects, questions about the state of the universe, you know, it’s all been rattling around in there.
sometimes i just want to slow it all down and snuggle up with a blankie. growing up, my blankie was one of my very favorite things. i didn’t drag it around with me, or suck on it, or do anything else gross–mostly it just stayed in my bed and gave me a little something to hold on to.
i think it might be time for me to have a new blankie. something soft, and warm, and comforting. and this time around, i might even carry it with me. i’m thinking this lovely piece from artlab would do just the trick. it’s like a blankie masquerading as a shawl. and it would be our little secret: people on the street would think i was just sporting a super sweet scarf, when in reality, i’d be wearing my blankie, around my neck, in public. you know how the old saying goes: keeping calm, carrying on, blankie in tow.

absolutely get a new blankie, and curl up to a nice crackling fire ….
Mmmmm … sounds cozy!

You DO need a new blankie! I give you permish.

Haha! Secretly walking around with your blankie…but nobody knoooows. Hehehe. Yes, this makes me think of the holidays even more.

I had a blankie for forever…my parents had to confiscate it finally.
Such a stylish scarf too! Win-win, I say.
so so pretty!
Oh, yes… I may need a little blankie wrapped warmly around my neck to try to stop the rattling inside my head. It just might work… What a lovely post, Erin..!
