I bought this blanket for my Grammy years ago. When i lived in New York. I spent a lot of money on it. Because I fell in love with it, and it was the most special thing I had ever seen. And she loves blankets, so I knew I had to get it for her. One day I went over to her house to see her, and she wasn't there. I peeked in the window, and all of the sudden it hit me. The blanket didn't match anything in her house! Her house was always blues and reds, which I love. But the blanket was proudly displayed on her couch, even though it completely clashed! She is so, so sweet. I felt so embarrassed at that moment because when I bought it for her I hadn't even considered whether it would match her things or not. Now she is living in the hospital wing of a nursing home without most of her belongings, and I found this blanket at my mom's house the other day. I sadly took it home with me. It still smells like Grammy, which makes me smile.
