12 Days of Christmas Give Away Day #6: 
Restoration Hardware Plush Throw


You knew it was Christmas time and close to Christmas when the "Peanuts" Charlie Brown Christmas Episode came on TV when you were a kid. It wasn't that I was a huge Peanuts fan, but the Christmas Episode was special.  You remember, right? Linus shares the true meaning of Christmas, saves the Christmas production while throwing his blue blankie on his head Shepherd style, then he uses said blue blankie as a tree skirt and wraps it around Charlie Brown's humble tree.  I get a lump in my throat each time I watch it. The music has stayed with me and those songs are now 'Classics'..."Christmas Time is here" and the theme song, "Linus and Lucy" are two of my very favorite songs to hear all December long. 

My sister and I would watch it every year.  So as a tribute to my sister, Lucy, and to Linus himself, here is a little winter Christmas time treat for a lucky winner! (maybe Lucy will even win it herself? Luck of the draw)!
Just like Linus, all of us could use a little security and snuggly blanket time now and then.
I searched HI & LOW to find the perfect blankie...grown up size.
I found it in this Restoration Hardware Plush Throw. It isn't exactly the sky blue kind that Linus was partial to, but I think you'll love this "silver sage" color just as much, if not more. (and I like anything with the name Sage in it...that's my maiden name and the name of my eldest daughter :))!
So enter to win this special treat! Check out the rules here.
Hope your Christmas time is warm, cozy and fuzzy!
XXXOOO.
