As I mentioned on Monday, I found a pretty amazing Moroccan Wedding Blanket (or Handira) at the Rose Bowl Flea over the weekend. When I dug through a large pile of colorful rags and saw this fluffy thing, I had a feeling that I had come up on something pretty special. Even more special? The $100 that I paid for it. Thank you oh thank you thrifting gods for my Wedding Blanket. I promise to have and to hold it for many, many years to come. If you are looking for a Handira Beyond Marrakech has a beautiful selection–but it’s gonna cost ya a little more than mine.
Now I just have to decide which side to keep face up!? Thoughts?
Also, I have had several people inquire about sources for my throw pillows. Like most of my things, they were either bought on a trip to a far-away place–or at the Rosebowl flea. However, the orange Ikat Pillows I got on One King’s Lane from Safavieh and the Organic Shine Society on Etsy has a nice range of kilim pillows like the ones I got in Turkey, at pretty decent prices. The big orange velvet pillow is from Ikea.
