all thru the house...

fourteen monograms

i love my monograms, they are an understated way to personalize your home. monograms are another way to tell a story about you and your family.  as we were painting the large M in our bedroom  gordon  joked "we will never forget who we are".  it is right across from our bed the first thing we will see in the morning and the last before we go to sleep.

outside our front door, includes the date we were married
   bookshelf in office, spells out our last name
  in the foyer beautiful dessert plate with "M"
  platter on shelf in the dining room from etsy
 above the bed in the guest bedroom, an initial for whoever sleeps there
 in our family room an "&" to include everyone in our home

my grandkids first initials - minus the newest, fox
still need to find the perfect "f"
plus a new baby in february another "h" 

our license plate when my kids were growing up
a great keepsake for us california canadians

my quilting room for me
the office G and H for gordon and hollie
our master bedroom the latest monogram
the living room "M" made by me out of buttons

the smallest a gift from my daughter merideth

  1. like mother like daughter... i too love a monogram anything. my fave in your home is the grandkids first initial. it must make them feel so special!!

  2. I am in love with your blog. I am Brooke (your daughter in laws) aunt. My hubby works with Dave. Your home is amazing! Wish I had 1/4 of your talent! I just had Brooke come over today to give me advise on vamping up my living room. She fits in perfectly with your family with that eye for decorating doesn't she!
