I've amassed a number of quirky and colorful collections during the 15 plus years I've been thrifting, but it's only been the last five or so that I've been collecting blankets. I think when you become a mother, blankets automatically become an obsession. As my kids grew out of their swaddling days I ventured into making my own blankets for them (I still have a bag of the girls' baby clothes to one day turn into quilts!). I don't get to make as many blankets as I'd love to these days, but coming across colorful thrifted finds definitely helps make up the difference!
I love cuddling up under a blanket in the winter, swinging one over the hammock, or taking one along for a picnic in the summer. And I always have a blanket (or two) in the back of my mama-van. Here's a peek at my full collection of thrifted blankets.

I'm always looking for new ways to recycle common thrift store items, and t-shirts are one of the easiest materials to work with. We use linens every night at dinner, but our current ones are getting a little sad-looking. So recycled t-shirt placemats it is! I love the shibori trend online right now, so I decided to give them a little color using a Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit.
