my latest post on talk.cil: blankets add warmth to decor
Happy New Year! I know this salutation is getting stale given that this is the end of the third week of January. And with the month two-thirds of the way done, I’m long over-due for another post. It seems these cold dark days of winter have found me rather sluggish with writing. Well at least on saf affect. I’ve been flexing my writing chops with CIL Paints, both on Facebook, and on the blog.

My latest post on talk.cil features a number of unique ways to use blankets and throws to warm up your decor. I’m personally fond of the colour and texture vintage blankets offer. I found this lovely ochre-coloured Kenwood Wool Products, Made in Canada, vintage wool blanket at a Value Village on Queen St. E. in Toronto for $12.99, which warms up my bedroom both visually and functionally.
At the holidays, I pull out this pink and blue mohair vintage throw, made in Scotland exclusively for Sears that I found at the Salvation Army at Jane St. and Lawrence Ave. W. in Toronto for $3.99. And I confess, despite the coordinating Christmas decorations having been packed away for the season, this cozy throw remains, as it not only warms me through the winter it also warms up my decor.
