M is for Monogram

Hi: some of you know I am was brought up on the Redneck Riviera (called just that) the NW panhandle of Florida-growing up as a "nice" southern girl-
my mom & grandmother monogrammed everything I wore (yes, even my handmade undies) soooo it is no wonder one of my most favorite things are having my initials, your initials, anyone's initials on pillows, throws, towels- oh yeah! just about anything! 

Above are a few of the monogrammed things I have in the shop & my home
Towels - don't you just love the leopard print with initials & then there is white with purple letters-that was a gift. 

The leopard print towel was a gift - so I just lined it with lavender and viola I have a fabulous throw
it is so cozy on those cold nights in S. CA. Yes, we do have cold nights!

Napkins-lavender (can you tell I think lavender is delicious). I try to find damask 26" or bigger with old monograms- and also hand towels(the red initials on old hand towel are peeking out in above image -The older the better-back in the day they were all done by hand! and so you'll know- does not matter whose initials are on them I love them anyway. 

Pillow (that can be personalized with your initial-with or without date) We can order these for you in the shop! another favorite-burlap/stenciling 

This is a bedroom for a client-love those monogrammed pillows. As a designer- by trade - it has become a trademark of mine to put clients initials somewhere in their home  

Chairs with numbers monogrammed (also can be done with stencils) Love anything with numbers, script, writing (am I crazy or what!)

One of my favorite places to go in LA is Pamela Goese's shop called Monogrammit

  now doing appliquéd initials- aren't they just the best!  

 font showing the alphabet & how each letter looks-for guys block letters are always grand-Pamela has those also!

Did I tell you Pamela has gifts that she initials! Take a look at her website
So there you have it dear readers-my love of all things monogrammed!...

  1. Hi Peggy, I was just browsing through your archives and see that you were raised in the Florida panhandle. We lived in Navarre Beach, between Pensacola & Ft Walton, until moving to Va. two years ago. Being a southern gal myself I also love anything monogrammed.
