After seeing this House Tour over on Apartment Therapy, I'm reminded how much I love the look of vintage or antique blankets in a home, whether strewn on the back of a sofa or laid out on a bed. The colors, patterns, and craftsmanship are usually unlike anything you'll find in a regular store, and I'm always up for a bit of history. Here are 5 favorites from a variety of sources. (They're originals, so get 'em while you can!)Shown above the jump, from left to right:
1 'Stitch' Handwoven Frasada, $290 from Twine: between 15-50 years old and totally one-of-a kind. Hand-crafted by traditional Bolivian artisans of sheep's wool.
