Crocheted blanket love

Well, Happy New Year folks!

I thought I would start the new year by sharing about a recent new obsession of mine: crocheted blankets! We regularly make the trip to a small village called Hawkhurst in Cranbrook, Kent to visit my Grandmother-in-law. Imagine my surprise to stumble upon an amazing little shop called Winifred's Daughter selling handmade and vintage loveliness! Every time I visited, though, this sweet little shop was closed. I tried again on Christmas Eve, and this time rang the mobile number posted on the door and the lovely owner popped down and opened up!

She had the most amazing selection of crocheted blankets in 3 sizes, that were made locally by a lady in the village (I'd been eyeing these up for several months!). Plus an amazing collection of other handmade items such as the fox and the owl on the sofa below made by a Danish designer, cushion covers in vintage fabrics, and an amazing hand-picked selection of vintage ornaments, pictures, kitchenware....Suffice to say I did not leave empty handed!!!

Below are a few photos of the two blankets that came home with me (one perfect for our bed, the other perfect for the sofa) and of course Mr. Fox and Mrs. Owl perched on the sofa :)

The sofa's had a makeover :)
