Monogram mania part 2 and a monogram giveaway!

Hi there....... First thanks sooo much for all those amazing drink suggestions yesterday. You guys are amazing! I did try one (in addition to making my sangria) which is now one of my official faves as I LOVE raspberry so thank you Marlindarling....tried your "Sassy Razz" and it was love at first sip! YUM!! Everyone loved it and its a keeper in my short but favorite drink repertoire. I will post on it and other things about last night in a few days. 

Moving along........ I had done a post on one my of my favorite subjects, monograms many months ago and thought a follow up post is way overdue. I LOVE monograms, have them on everything from my bedding to my guest towels and napkins, to my key chain to clogs that I wear like a uniform. You just don't understand how much I adore them, used to want to be a stationer who would specialize in letterpress monogrammed stationary just so I could be part of the creative process over and over.......Love them! 
Its a time honored tradition, that has held strong particularly in the south  but their popularity has soared throughout the world and has become more mainstream,  and I think its safe to say that monograms are really big and not going anywhere. What more elegant way is there to have your own personal stamp put on anything than an elegant monogram that is exclusively yours? Do you love them like I do? Today a look at various ways to display a monogram and to celebrate this post I am offering a monogram giveaway!! All details on the bottom. So here we go......feast your eyes on these monograms!
