sfgirl by the hudson bay.
who doesn’t love these blankets? i saw this post on the old faithful shop blog and memories came flooding in — hudson bay blankets evoke all kinds of happy childhood memories for me. my parents had one of these traditionally primary-colored striped hudson bay blankets — i think they may have even brought it with them all the way from canada when they moved to santa monica. we used it every weekend as our beach blanket. i think i have a photo of my mum somewhere, with it wrapped around her shoulders on one of the chilly beach days (my father refused to leave even when the weather was anything but beachy, so the blanket came in handy).
these days i’m eyeing one of the charcoal striped versions of the old bay — either the MILLENIUM CARIBOU THROW or the MILLENIUM BAY POINT BLANKET. prefect for cuddling up on the new couch. find them at old faithful shop (among many other wonderfully nostalgic household items).
