bundle up

now that fall is right around the corner, all i can think about are backyard fire pits, apple cider, camping, halloween, leaves crunching beneath my feet, open windows, and lots of veggie chili with jalapeno cornbread!

this is my favorite time of year (and j's favorite too, which he repeats often) and now that georgia is out of the 90 degree weather (well for now and hopefully the rest of the year) it really is kicking in that it'll be here so soon!

the crisp fall weather requires great blankets. they are a must! most of our blankets have gone to the dogs [literally] so it's time for us to invest in a nice new blanket. these pendleton woolen mills blankets (specifically the jacquard style) have me completely head over heels! they are a bit pricey but they look like a great investment. perfect for sitting by a campfire!

go here for the entire jacquard collection.

the textiles are so beautiful and they come in so many different colors. i love the names of the various native american blankets since i am currently reading a book (see my "currently reading" section) that j bought me about the various tribal stories and legends. i can recognize the names of the blankets as important aspects within the native american culture and history. since i have cherokee in my blood, it is nice to feel connected to the stories of the native elders. ♥

for all of the mothers-to-be, they even have adorable blankets for the little ones and native american-themed heirloom bracelets and stuffed animals (as seen here).
