Me Likely Monograms!

Being a Southern girl, I love anything monogrammed.    I think it’s in our blood.    So now that I’m retired, I’m eager to finish up some projects that have been left halfway done.    I decided to tackle my bathroom first.     It’s probably more than 1/2 done but just needs a few finishing touches before I share.     Just like in the rest of the house, my bathroom and master bedroom is awash in creamy neutrals.    While out shopping yesterday I stopped in one of my favorite monogram shops and found a darling linen towel that I left to have monogrammed.     I picked it up today and love how it turned out!

I need to iron the ruffle but I couldn’t wait to hang it up to see how it looked

My shower curtain is a pretty linen curtain panel that works well as a shower curtain (I have a heavy duty liner behind it).     I’m adding a cream colored ruffle to the bottom to give it a custom look.   That’s the plan anywayRolling on the floor laughing!

I also want to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone who left such supportive and encouraging comments on my retirement announcement.     I’m still pinching myself about this new change in my life.     Today I was able to take care of some personal business and drop by my daughter’s office with lunch for her.     I think I’m going to like this retirement thing!

I gotta find me a sweet, little monogram shop too. I haven'y exactly announced my "retirmement" per say, but I announced I am "quitting my job I hate and doing something I love instead" - which is almost as good. :)

Love your little towel.

Your new monogramed towel is really pretty. I know your bathroom is going to look just as great as the rest of your home.

With our new baby grandson and all, I missed your last post. I retired under the same sort of craziness...and I loved my job but not the drama that was unfolding there. One of these days we will "talk". I quit in November and I'll tell you, I have been so busy ever since that I don't know how I ever found time to work~

I LOVE monograms, too. I think I have a Southern soul. xo Diana

Congratulations on your retirement...I did not know since I have not had the Internet for almost 6 days. Now if you go to Ikea...maybe we can meet up.

I missed the retirement post! I don't think you will have any problem "filling" your days. Even the mundane things like changing sheets and cleaning bathrooms are easier. Now you'll have time to come to Pelham more often.

Love your monogram towel. White with linen is one of my favorite combos.

See you soon,
Elizabeth Ann

We have almost the exact same monogram!! Ours is JJL. What is/are your favorite letters for J? Every time I get something monogram the clerk feels the need to inform me....how awful my letters are!
