Hi, I  hope you've had a hoppy happy Easter. Sorry.
I was just having a sticky beak at a few blogs (wine glass in hand) when I came across this pic. It's too clever, wonderful and easy-peasy NOT to share and I know you will love it... 

don't you love them?
I think this is one idea definetely worth copying, don't you?

Next time you find a slightly threadbare granny blanket, or one that might be a bit smaller than what you were hoping for, don't turn your nose up at it...take it home, give it a wash (and some love) and hang it on your wall just like Allison did.

gorgeous granny

 I can't believe I have never thought of this! BUT I suppose that's why Allison is Allison and I'm... well, me!

There are always some grannies that need a little more love than others...and this could be one way of ensuring they all get the love they deserve. Let me know what you think.


  1. Hi Kylie! Received you email! I don't need to invite you because my blog is open to everyone :)

    Enjoy the rest of your long weekend!

  2. Very cool idea!! Although granny blankets are like gold dust where I live :o) Happy Easter Scarlett x

  3. those granny rugs look GREAT. Sportsgirl shops have all their walls hung with granny rugs over here in Melbourne this month.. lovely displays. My gr.daughter took photos, but the manager asked her to stop, no cameras allowed in their shops apparently.
    she did a blog with the few photos she did take


  4. Hi Kylie, Happy Easter and can I say I love this idea, it looks brilliant. I think I have some canvasses up in the loft as well...I'm going to have to try it.

  5. I follow her blog and i loved them to when she posted about them such a great idea and i have to say some of those crochet blankets are little works of art. enjoy the rest of your weekend, dee x

  6. Genius! Now I can justify buying some more. Went charity shopping with the man a few days ago and he was positively rude about my blanket habit. Men. Pffft.

  7. Love that idea and as a granny myself we will take any love that is available lol just dont go hanging me on anything
