Native Americans are very much connected to the history of the blanket. Long before white settlers drove west the Indians could use their blankets made from plant fibers as trade items for food and tools. When trappers began to move west in search of animal skins, they would trade blankets to the Indians for beaver skins. Then when the settlers drove west the Native Americans could trade handmade blankets, strung beads and other items made from animal bones for commercially made wool blankets.
Decorating one's home, especially if you've just moved in to a new house, should be fun and exciting.
