    Very Lovely!

    Posted by Mary on Dec 13th 2016

    This throw blanket is beautifully made. It has a lovely pattern and is true to the color 'cadet blue'. It would be a terrific gift and is so reasonably priced for its quality and uniqueness. I have also purchased this artisan's Long Sleeved Grey cardigan sweater with a side tail hem which I absolutely love for its warmth and comfort. Thank You!
