Monogram Me

May 16, 2011 at 7:59 AM 7 comments

I have always wished that I could be a Southerner.  It’s always come across to me as a very friendly and polite culture and their accents are the best ever.  Okay, so perhaps, a lot of the fascination comes down to the accent.  While, I can’t perfect the accent, as much as I try, I can take their lead and monogram everything.  Monogramming feels southern preppy to me and I love it.

Via Life of Style

                                                                                   Via Little Green Notebook

Via Pink Wallpaper

                                                                                                          Via Rue

                                                                                                   Via Lonny

A monogram gives your bed a great custom look and it’s really inexpensive to do on pillows.  I bought a pair of large pillows from Home Goods and I’m getting them monogrammed for $15 per pillow, which I’ve found to be the average cost around here.  It will give my bedding a nice personal touch and it might fool people into thinking I am a Southerner.

    I too love monograms. The ones you have shown are particularly pretty. I have a great source for towels—beautiful monograms, lots of color choices and the towels are oversized.

    Ha, we southerners do love our monograms…I can’t tell you how many cars I see driving around town with a monogrammed slapped on their back window! These are gorgeous, I love the last one!

    LOVE me some monograms! I’m with you, I’d monogram everything in site if possible.

    Clearly I’m thinking in “web terms” as I wrote “site” instead of sight!

    Love them! I wasn’t born here but I feel like a Southerner now with 7 years of Nashville under my belt. The most “extreme monogramming” I saw in college was on girls’ back jean pockets! That was taking it a little far for me 🙂 But LOVE it on pillows!
