How we love thee.
You’ve given us Ryan Gosling, maple syrup and hockey.
How can we ever thank you?
But I have to say, in my humble opinion, one of your best additions ever was the Hudson Bay Wool Blanket
(blanket traded by the Hudson Bay company between Canada and North America in 18-19th century).
It has influenced design (and warmed cold toes) around the world.
Yesterday, after I dropped my last little man off at his first day of preschool,
me and my teary-eyed self wandered around town until it was time to pick him back up and see if he survived.
You can imagine my excitement when I found a vintage Hudson Bay Blanket at a consignment shop in my wanderings.
It was like a consoling gift from Heaven.
For now it’s hanging out on my son’s bed…
but oh the possibilities…

Here are some different versions of the classic Hudson Bay Wool Blanket.
P.S. My little man did great on his first day. For the past 11+ years I’ve been at home raising three little men.
I’m emotional seeing this sweet time come to an end but I’m immensely excited to see what this new chapter holds!
