handmade thrifted crochet blanket

I miss posting about my thrifty finds, but there aren’t as many during the winter months. Most of my great scores come from church and garage sales, which generally happen in the spring and summer. Last week I went to Goodwill’s 99 cent sale looking for clothing and never expected to come home with this handmade blanket. It matches our walls, couch and carpet perfectly. And it is so warm! Just in time for another snowstorm.

The wooden tray on the ottoman was also a thrifty find from a few months ago, still with the tag! We don’t have a coffee table in this room, so we use it to hold drinks (and popcorn!) when we snuggle in front of the television.

thrifting: Blanket cost $6. Kind of expensive for me, but it’s just so perfect. Tray was $2.

    OMG…gorgeous blanket

  2. lovely ripple afghan you have found there – $6 is not so much considering the yarn probably cost $60! Tho a thrifty shopper who crochets can find great deals in the thrift shops too! I recently got some nice baby yarn – enough to make a blanket for a new babe for $1.99 and the same yarn is at micheal’s for 4.99 a ball — I got 6 balls at the thrift store…

  6. […] I also had fun remnant diving. The striped fabric is flannel. At first I thought blanket, but now I’m thinking jammies for my daughter. The orange will be sewn into pillow covers for our livingroom. I think they’ll look lovely with my thrifted afghan. […]
