Jus Veggin'

I found some awesome NEW granny square afghans
at a garage sale for $2 each!

I thought maybe we could use them in the vintage camper reno,
but for now they're in my front room.
One is a multi-colored pattern, 
and the other has orange, red, pink, and white.

It's kinda my bright way of adding a little vintage autumn coziness
to the home.  Most of my palette is soft, so these
lovelies add some intensity.

My sofa-bench is my favorite spot to vegg now when I need a cat nap.

I won't be curlin' up with a blankie tonight,
it was 97 degrees today and they let out school early 
because we haven't any A/C in the building.

Today I need to just COOL off and VEGG
 sans new blankie.

So I will appreciate my fall beauties today
from afar and hope for a cool down.

Sharing my new finds with

Same thing here, Andrea. I love your afghan though...but not the heat and humidity- xo Diana

I LOVE these, Andrea, my mom made me one when we first got married but our dog literally ate it. So that brown one is just too cute, in my book!! love it on your adorable sofa!

I can't believe these afghans were only $2.00 each! All the work and care that went into making them must have taken hours. I really like the multi colored one. The colors are so pretty. You always find the best treasures.

Happy Wednesday.

Love your afghans and what a great buy. I've been very drawn to multi-colored afghans lately and have purchased 3 for our camper. I enjoy curling up with them. They are truly a lost art.

Great finds. I tried to make one of those one time. Made about a hundred of those stupid squares, but never put them together. Off to see if I still have them.
