Monogrammed Mondays: Appliques

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.  I sure did, even got to spend a DAY with Mr. R (a first since before Memorial Day). 

I want to send a special Back to School shout out to our niece Miss K, who starts FIRST GRADE today and my bro-in-law RAR who is officially a TEACHER today!  We are also staying up to the minute with updates on the impending arrival of niece #4.  Could be any day/minute!  More on that and a Columbia baby shower later.

On to the wonderful world of appliques.  I view these as one of the most elegant versions of a monogram.  They are also the most customized and usually expensive.  They make fabulous wedding, baby or graduation gifts or create a blissful bedroom.  They have become quite popular with designers and mainstream companies like Pottery Barn are now getting in on the action.

Drumroll please...here we go!
