We are at a house on the ocean in Gulf Shores, Alabama for Christmas. My husband and I love to sit in this cozy beach cottage reading, or working on our computers. This particular cottage is furnished much nicer than most. It has a beautiful set of very light teal green sofas, and a coordinating chair, rug, coffee table and side tables. It is really gorgeous.
Sometimes I get a little chilly in the evenings, and I find myself wishing I had a light blanket. While shopping in Tuesday Morning, I found a beautiful satin-look light teal throw that exactly matches the sofa! While it does look like satin, it is made of 100% polyester, and is machine washable in cold water, on the gentle cycle. It can be tumble dried on low heat.
It has an intricate stitched in pattern of beautiful designs, and a scalloped edge. I feel like a princess, when I throw it over my lap. It also looks great as a decorative accent, displayed across the sofa, when I'm not using it. I know I will enjoy this for many months to come.
Update On Dec 23, 2009: I forgot to say that the throw is 50 inches by 50 inches, so it's quite a nice size! And another important fact is that it retailed for $99.00!!! Wow!!! And I got it for $19.99!!!
