I grew up in New York, just north of the City. I live in Ohio. No part of me can pretend to be a Southerner. I love the southern style – lots of stuff, inviting, hand made, lots of detail and always with monograms! Everything has a monogram!
When a dear friend moved up here, she schooled me a bit. Apparently, there are rules for monograms too.
In true Yankee fashion, I have gone in my own direction. I cannot sew and I cannot remember all the rules she taught me. I found a cheap solution.
Remember my fabulous find?
It is now in my kitchen.
It now has a little Southern charm.
This is a peel and stick from JoAnn’s. For under $3, 20 seconds to adhere – I am a Southerner!
The letters are on clearance in the home dec dept. They show them on lampshades, pillows, bags…really anything.
Taking it a step further, I tried Etching Cream.
I took a plain water pitcher, used the vinyl outline that I cut with the Cricut, applied etching cream, rinsed it after 60 seconds and now I have a monogrammed pitcher! Easy!
I had a terrible time getting a photo of this.
There you have it – I am a Southern-lady!
Cheers to you on St. Patty’s Day!
