My living room, where I spend most of the day, is very drafty and chilly due to an air-leaking dog door.  I sit huddled in sweaters and under inadequate throws. 

 

I saw a heated throw advertised on the Q, checked them out but they just had a few and I didn't like any.  I went to Amazon and found a beauty, ordered it Saturday and it just came. 

 

It's a deep cranberry color, thick, velvety velour, lined in a soft white fuzzy fabric.  The whole thing is huge and sumptuously thick and warm.  I plugged it in and now I'm in heaven, ready for the two cold fronts we're finally expecting this week.  Merry Christmas to me. 

 

Let winter begin!

Sounds as though you're snug as a bug.

 

Stay warm and happy!

I just looked 'over there'.......so many to choose from.

 

Enjoy yours!

Glad you got your warmth back. It was 14' when I got up this morning and the wind was howling. No doggy doors for me. It's too cold for one here. Last summer I hired a weatherization specialist to come to my house and evaluate and run some tests on my house for energy loss. Had some things done to my house and I had asked about a pet door and they said it was not a good idea. I would be paying to heat the outdoors....lol! So no doggy door for pooch.

Re: Finally, I'm Warm and Cozy

@SilleeMee    Your weather specialist was right.  When we have a really cold and windy day, I remove the dog door panel from the slider, which faces North, and just shut the door.   Dogs are satisfied to just hunker down those days, and I let them out for awhile every couple of hours.  Neither is a super-antsy dog. 

 

These electric throws would make a great gift.

I bought these as gifts last year for all the grandkids and dil....they love them!  I think I am going to order one for myself this year.  Good thinking on the drafty place like mine.  Glad it is working out for you!

Re: Finally, I'm Warm and Cozy

@Kachina624   Glad you found something to keep you warm.  I've had a fire in the wood stove all day today.  Actually got it a little too warm in here. It's a soapstone stove so once it gets hot it holds the heat.  Supposed to be single digits this week later on.  I'm hoping for the snow they are predicting..


Keep warm...DW

@dancingwoman    We'll all pray for snow for Colorado and Northern NM so those ski resorts can open and we can start the snow pack.
