As winter's chill creeps in (yes, even here in California), it's tempting to snuggle up under a blanket 'round-the-clock. And if you can snuggle up with someone you love, or with a blanket that tells you, in a secret language, that someone loves you, so much the better.
Last year A Cup Of Jo featured the graceful COATT Morse Code Necklaces, and though I love them, I don't need a necklace...but I always need a blanket! When you grow up in Chicago winters, you never get over the need to hoard bedding and boots. Holly Berry's bright and beautiful blankets are woven in a 250-year old mill in Scotland, and the blocks of vibrant color spell out the word "Love". Her scarves and wraps are made by hand, and — here's the potentially most-exciting part — she takes commissions. You could have a one-of-a-kind work of art made, with a special hidden message just for your beloved. Or for yourself!
