The Last Days of Monogram Madness

It's almost July - can you believe it? The 4th will be here in a flash - and with it, a new blog theme... can you guess it?

Monogram Madness ends with this:
Some free clip art for 3-initial monograms, from Just Something I Made. A little tip for your family monogram - it goes Your First Initial, Last Initial, Hubbs's First Initial. So Elizabeth + James Roberts would have the monogram ERJ. (R would be big)
And in honor of summer, the 4th, and a nice long weekend - these are too cute not to share (From Alphamom):

Monogrammed Costmetic Cases

The ultimate travel accessory is a monogrammed cosmetics case. You'll use it each time you travel, and it's handy to have it monogrammed in case you're staying in a French country hotel and you have to share a bath.

This one from Pottery Barn is very classy:

This one from Whitney Caroline Designs is fun + perky:

For the ultimate monogram - appliqu├ęd - from Leontine:

For a simple, classic look, try Carolina Clover:

And for the gentlemen, Orvis has got you covered:

The Monogrammed Table

You know, there's more to a monogrammed table than just the hemstitched linen napkins...

There's the runner - found this cute one at Emersonmade, via Tobi Fairley's blog. Have you heard of Emersonmade? I hope so. They started out making the cutest linen flowers ever seen, hand-cut, hand-stitched, and purely loved. Then they ventured into a few clothing items, and now they're a full blown company. The pictures alone are worth checking out.

Then there's the table cloth. This one is by Fullerworks on Etsy.

And the napkins are essential, here are 2 faves - Bella Lino (for those who love Leontine Linens), and A Touch of Lace.

I have a friend with a monogrammed ring - and let me tell you: I covet it. But I suppose I could get my own...

From Max + Chloe, who have loads of nicely monogrammed jewelry

And Kim from My Life in Pink + Green has a great post about monograms in general. L.O.V.E. the monogrammed weekender she has listed, from Periwinkle.

{P.S. Haile - she had her swimsuit monogrammed!}

Monogrammed Scarves

I know, I know. Waaaay too hot to be thinking about scarves. But they are pretty cute! And a nice way to add a monogram. A good gift for a grad who's moving to a cold climate, or for back to school. Or for sororities.

Calico Daisy had some of these last fall. Check out the current stock on Etsy....

Monograms From Head to... Toe

I do think monogrammed shoes border on the tacky, but let's take a walk on the wild side. I think they can be gotten away with, with the right outfit.

Casual cuties

Formal beauties

Driving mocs

Monogrammed Cookies

You know you want some of these! Doesn't matter that you're not getting married today. Doesn't matter one little bitty bit. Monogrammed cookies are just specialer than regular cookies. I would order some of these for a party, for sure, but I've also been known to order them for no reason at all. They've also got some lovely non-monogrammed designs...
