Originally, monogramming was not for decorative purposes, but for identification on wash day. Before long, a monogram evolved into a way to show wealth. This is still true, to some extent, today. Having monogrammed bedding, towels or table linens is the mark of a well kept home and a thoughtful homeowner and gives items a feeling of importance. A monogram can come in infinite styles and fonts.

I wanted to create something special that I could use decoratively that uses our common intiials. Here is what I created:
I am sure a graphic designer could come up with tons more, I just used the fonts available on my laptop. I haven’t picked a favorite yet, nor have I found a place to apply it. If it weren’t for the covenants in our neighborhood, I would be tempted to put one on our front door. Which one is your favorite?
