Names & Monograms

14 Nov

I love it when I look at a catalog like Pottery Barn and see my monogram on an item. I know it’s simply a random coincidence, but I feel like they’re showing me what things would look like when I order them with a big “C” on them. I also love it when I see my name on things in catalogs. Growing up, that never happened. You could find almost any girl name sifting through the racks in tourist spots but mine, so seeing my name on things now is sort of making up for it. Especially when I see this on a website’s front page:

It’s a cute white Christmas stocking with a ceramic name plate and, though I already have a beautiful stocking that was knitted for my first Christmas and emblazoned with my name (not kidding – it is r-e-d), I still have to crush the urge to order it. The site is however giving me lots of ideas for making a simple ornament or two to gift this Christmas. Besides, if I make the gifts, I can easily apply my own custom monograms!
