When you're little being able to sit in bed and watch television is super fun! We only had one television in the house and it was in the living room which is actually how I would actually prefer now that I'm an adult - but that is another topic for another day...
Anyhow, my favorite blanket that she had on her bed was the white chenille bedspread. Have you ever seen these? So comfy, soft, heavy and hers smelt good... that smell of material washed up good and stored in the backroom/linen closet. It just smelt good - I don't know I can't explain it but if you know what I mean by that smell of old material you understand. I love chenille blankets! I would trace the little balls of material with my finger and brush my hand back and forth on top of them. So comforting - that feeling.I just called her to ask her what they are called because their name had slipped my mind and she told me I could have one of them! Yay me! So glad my boys can enjoy these chenille bedspreads like I did.
Do you have a favorite blanket? Maybe it is a old denim family quilt, or a deliciously warm flannel blanket that you all cuddle in as you sip hot chocolate and watch Seven Brides for Seven Daughters (Oops! That's hysterical! Thanks ma...) **Seven Brothers- whatever it may be - I'm sure you understand the comfort that a favorite blanket brings to your heart.
