I add the dashes to make it even more of a statement! I mean I monogram ever-y-thing I get my hands on. It's like I am afraid someone won't know its mine ... right?
Since I post a lot of monogrammed items I get a lot of questions about my thoughts on monograms. I always respond the same, I am old school and follow Emily Post's rules. All the linens in the house are monogrammed in the lady of the house's monogram. The bar ware is the gentleman's monogram. Personally I don't love a combined monogram and will chose a single M over a combined monogram. If you chose a combined monogram, the man is never separated from his last name. So for us it would be pMn.
I absolutely loved this article from Town & Country on how to monogram. The article makes four points for getting monogramming right. I love almost all of them all.
1. Keep it subtle.
2. Choose it for the right reasons.
3. Limit yourself to one. (They mean at a time, don't freak out!)
4. Avoid home goods.
(clearly I don't follow this rule at all!)
I say monogram it all ... #addict
Happy Thursday loves!
