Hot Pink Navajo Blankets: Who Knew I Needed One?

Hot Pink Navajo Blankets: Who Knew I Needed One?

Over the winter I got to visit my 13-year old cousin, who'd just gotten her horse tricked out with a pink saddle, hot pink Navajo saddle blanket, purple reins, and a sparkly pink bridle (pink cowgirl boots, too, of course). The whole effect was a bit much for me, being 31 rather than 13, but I wanted that blanket so bad...

I'd never considered owning a Navajo-style blanket (though I think they're amazing) until I saw a pink one. This doesn't make any sense to me, as I've never been drawn to the bright colors and bold patterns of many Navajo-style blankets, but somehow it works for me if it's hot pink. This is ridiculous, but I can't help it. Any of the blankets above would look great in my all grey-&-white bedroom, folded at the bottom of my much more restrained Pendleton blanket.

Do you think any of these could work in a grown woman's house, or do you really need a horse to complete this look? In San Francisco, Gravel & Gold on 21st often has a great selection of graphic blankets. Let me know if you spot a hot pink one, okay? It's for my cousin, of course!
