this is the blanket my mother re-designed
it used to be her mothers
and now will enter a new life
as a cushion on a rocking-chair in Sweden

my parents enjoy it all:
the cutest dog
the beautiful blanket
and that fireplace...

~  snuggle up ~


  1. That is a beautiful blanket Maaike. You are so lucky to have something that has been in the family for so long. The doggy has certainly picked a cosy place to sleep! xx

  2. Oh! It's so cosy! Your dog is the one of Columbo Inspector?

  3. A lovely blanket ...a tresure for sure.

  4. De warmte straalt van je bericht af Maaike.
    Leuk dat je mij gisteren ook even een bezoekje bracht.
    Heb je ontdekt dat ik twee blogs heb ?

    Fijne woensdag

  5. That blanket is so special:) How wonderful:) I also adore that fireplace. Have a great day
    Kisses and wish you a great 1st day of December

    Ps: I am hosting a beautiful scarf GIVEAWAY later today, just in time for Christmas.

  6. a blanket with quite a legacy, how fun :)

  7. Mooi hoor ! En wat een lieve hond! de jouwe?? Mooie kleur die deken zeg!! Veel liefs uit Engeland van een vroeger Amsterdamse

  8. How wonderful. What a cosy post, makes me feel warm because it's damned cold where I am! x

  9. Thank you for all your lovely comments on my mom's blanket! She will be delighted to read them :-).

    To all of you wondering about the dog: it is my parent's dog. I wish we had one of our own... And yes, it is a french basset hound. Columbo Inspector's dog is an english basset: the french are a little more active and slim. But both are sooo cute if you ask me.

  10. That is one lovely blanket and with the history it makes it even more precious!

    Have a great weekend Maaike :)


~ sweet thank you for your lovely words ~
