What's This? Stadium Blankets at Candy Cane Cottage (aka Sweet Bee Cottage)

Do you think I might win a prize for the longest post title ever????  A girl can dream, right?

So, I'll get to the point.  I have a thing for Scotch Plaid picnic gear.  I've got quite a few pieces and that addiction turned into an addiction for picnic tins and that addiction in turn resulted in an addiction to stadium blankets.  Did you follow that?

Well the collection is very slow growing because I won't spend much more than $5 on a blanket, but on Black Friday Baby Bee and I found a second red plaid blanket at an estate sale for (yep, you guessed it) $5!

I still haven't gotten to the point yet, have I?  Why am I so hung up on having a SECOND red plaid stadium blanket?  Glad you asked!

This is why!
  I just wrapped and tucked the blankets over our regular kitchen nook cushions.  

Originally I wasn't going to have the fringe hang down, but now I think it looks charming.  Cottage Christmasy Charming! 
 Next I had to pull out all the kitchen nook pillows!  
 I love my gingerbread pillow!  He was a fantastic find at Home Goods a few years ago.
 Baby Bee loves the candy cane and Christmas tree pillow.  I was thinking about not putting them out this year, but Baby Bee made a sad little face so there they are.


And there you have it – the extent of my Christmas decorating so far.  I better get on the ball.  We are having my staff Christmas party at Candy Cane Sweet Bee Cottage on Friday!  Yes, this Friday!  I know, I know – get back to work Sweet Bee!  I hear you!
Here's how the nook normally looks...
Thanks for buzzing in!

  9. Holytoot, Sweet Bee!!! That's super adorable!I mean, just pure happy magic! How else can I say it cuz I really, really mean it! Baby bee was right about those pillows, too. ;) and the pillow with the little balls around the edges... that's my favorite! Oh, dear! I'm still 'spring cleaning' - boxes of stuff to give away (tis a good season to do that!) and moving furniture and painting little things here and there and.... a tiny bit of gardening yet to do... =/ (There's snow on the ground. =P) I'd better settle down and get on with the festivities - there are memories to be made!!! =D One more choir concert tonight and, then, onward!

    Have fun with your party this Fri and good luck with getting everything ready!!! =]
