cool and crisp

A custom monogram sure does add an air of cool and crisp - to linens, paper or porcelain.
Perhaps even on a melamine dish this would be magnificent.
My client wanted something mod, fresh and octagonal.
But you know me, I have to explore all the design possibilities.
How about this pretty one for a pillow. I would love it in white on white linen.
Imagine it on a linen hand towel for guests to covet.
A Quatre-foil inspired monogram which helped me to cleverly utilize all four initials.
Not to worry, I painted the leaves green on the right before I sent to my client.

I have some more ideas for a cool and crisp weekend.
It feels delightful after that mini heatwave.

Have a cool weekend. Chill out and take it easy with something monogrammed...I hope.

Those monograms, in a word, are STUNNING! Great work Patricia - love them. All three are perfect, and I loved the new vibe with the 1st and 3rd.

Here's to the weekend!

absolutely LOVE the first one! why so many initials? I've always wondered if my proper monogram would be JLoR -- A friend told me it is something like that.....

It is a perfect late spring morning - crisp and cool - like your monograms! Wish it could stay this way all summer long... Happy weekend!

PVE,

How lovely these are! I see them embroidered on flax colored linen tote bags for day travel, shopping, and as gifts for summer B-Day friends and family. Great on the back of a hoodie too! Oh stop...possibilities are endless!
