It's the most wonderful time... of the year! And a great time of year to be beside a crackling fire under a plush blanket, right?  Too bad it is 70 degrees here in Atlanta, Georgia today.  Arg.  A girl can dream though, right? (IIIII'm dreeeeeaming ooooof a cooooozy plush throooow.....)

Ever noticed how stores like Pottery Barn (my beloved), Ballard Design, Crate & Barrel, and even Bed Bath and Beyond pair bedding/living room/upholstered furnishings with a nice blanket?  Even in the summer months, you won't catch a leather PB chair or sectional sofa without some sort of throw draped across a corner, tucked behind a toss pillow.

Somehow, a blanket just completes a room and makes it really comfortable and welcoming.  And you guys, I found (actually my MIL found- that's mother-in-law y'all) the ultimate comfortable/welcoming textile you ever did see.   I'm serious, this blanket might just send you snoozing looking at it... but certainly when you curl up under this heavenly thing.  And, its name really suits it...

THE LUXURY PLUSH THROW- Restoration Hardware.  Luxury, quite so.  It's like something a queen would sleep on.  Softer than velvet, softer than fur, and softer than no blanket at all, of course.  I'm not sure what it is made of, but I'm guessing angel kisses and a breath of heaven.  And plush?  Definitely.  This isn't for the skimpy blanket lovers of the world.  If this blanket were a hamburger, it'd be the Vortex Cheeseburger (for those of you that don't understand, that's the best burger in the world).  If it were a car, it'd be the Rolls Royce.  A champagne, Don Perignon.  A museum, the Smithsonian.  A QB, Tom Brady  (sorry hubs, it's true).  An 80's band, GNR (please take me home, yeaa yeaa).  A sitcom, Modern Family.  And certainly, if this blanket were in your house, you'd be a happy camper.

Luxury Plush Throw, Restoration Hardware:

Don't you know, I bought one for the guest room and our master bedroom.  I haven't looked back.  And the best part, these babies are 50% off right now, so get yours while this special is going on (get yours here)! You won't regret it, but you might sleep better.  And longer.  Zzzzzzzzzz.
