Being sort of obsessed with most all things British I was really excited when Sherry from Shantygirl decided to do a giveaway of one of her Union Jack throws. I didn't think I would win...though I have been extremely lucky lately (I keep finding dollar bills on the ground and my kids are so embarrassed when I get so excited about a dollar!). I was just thrilled when Sherry announced that I won! I did a happy dance...called Janae, called my husband, told anyone who would listen. I just love my new Union Jack throw!
The color is a purply-blue-mauve and sweet pink florals. Really love the fabrics. I believe Sherry said she dyed the darker fabric with a denim blue dye. I have never dyed a patterned fabric, though I plan to try it soon!
|Please excuse the crooked pictures. The kids are always bumping them when wrestling/fighting/playing. It drives me nuts.|
I think the color looks really nice with my dark furniture in the livingroom.
Another option would be hanging it on the wall.
It looks good reflecting in the mirror!
I think it looks the best in my bedroom though. Makes the bed look regal. The blue paint in my bedroom has a lot of purple in it so it looks nice in there. The really wonderful thing is it is easy to "throw" around wherever I want it to be!
Thank you so much Sherry--I am just tickled with it, and feeling like I am so lucky! For those of you not as lucky as me :) I think Sherry is going to have some for sale pretty soon and also some really cool heart of Texas throws that are really fun! You should bookmark her Etsy shop here.
Thank you so much to everybody who left sweet comments on my post about losing Sassy. It makes the grieving process so much easier when reading all your comments!
Hope you enjoyed seeing Jack, and I hope you will visit again soon. Have a great week!
