151/366 the well loved blankie
Some of Wednesday was again spent going through boxes in the office/nursery closet. One of those boxes was filled with stuff from my childhood room, including a few toys, books, and my old blankies. This was my favorite of my two favorite Sesame Street blankets, probably because of the colored patches on the hot air balloon. (The other had a picnic scene on it.) These are in pretty bad shape now. The trim is chewed up (literally) and coming off in places, and there are faint stains from childhood bloody noses that couldn't quite be bleached away completely. But of course, I can't throw them away. I packed them back in their plastic case, and they'll probably go in a plastic tub or something, relegated safely to the back of a closet again.
