Click. Click. Click.
I never want to set this blankie down. I alternately want to clutch it next to my cheek whilst dragging it around the house like a four year old, then remove all of my clothing and burrow beneath it with my splendid king (or just by myself) and engage in carnal activity. (Yes, I realize that is a disturbing juxtaposition, but it allowed me to use the word juxtaposition and I don't give up a windfall like that easily.)
Every. Woman. In. America. wants one of these throws.
Hence, you can imagine my disappointment when I discovered the throw was "Made in China." Why oh why is it so? After all, every American woman wants one. Don't believe me? See above--IT SAYS SO RIGHT THERE. Every American woman should have one. And yes, I see you out there trying, but you're going to have to do better than 400 clams (although you get points for the oversizing). We're talking EVERY American woman.
I suspect this post may inspire some purchases and don't get me wrong, I do not begrudge World Market or their Chinese manufacturer their due sales. After all, this is a terrific product at a terrific price (worth every nickel of the full $60 retail price). But before any of you boppers out there go click click click, know that the fur is on just one side of the throw. The other side is a plush brown fabric, which is also cuddly, but not as yummy as the fur side. To my would-be American manufacturer however: please do oversize and make both sides fur. Yes, I'll pay a little more.
Aha! I see you're getting closer and closer ...
