I'll just be a minute

After my Pusser's lunch date with JCW, I couldn't resist running into Star Monograms to drop off yet another tote to be monogrammed. Katie was getting together the most darling bridesmaids gifts for a wedding that weekend.

All the bridesmaids were going to receive monogrammed Tervis Tumblers, silver ball necklaces....

and personalized trays.

I poked around the store for a couple minutes after deciding on the monogram for my new tote. By that point JCW had made his way outside so I had to make it snappy.

I admired the Bosom Buddy Bag display...

and the monogrammed travel accessories.

My finished tote! If I wasn't so matchy matchy I would probably be able to cool it with the totes...but let's face it that will never happen!

Monograms are so cool! I remember the monogrammed crewnecks that all the gals wore in the early 80s. I keep hoping they'll make a comeback. :)

A store like that would be retail crack for me - could never get enough! Love your tote, and I love the bridesmaids gifts. What a fun idea for the gals in the wedding - bridesmaids gifts have come such a long way from when I got married!

I love all the Tumblers and think that those three gifts would be perfect for bridesmaids and so personal. I love how the Boat & Tote came out. I have a large one for weekend trips and I love my monogram on it.

I can’t even imagine how many times JCW has heard "I’ll just be a minute" come out of my mouth! Give Star Monograms a call 410-280-8845 and ask about the trays. Happy Friday! xx

I love that monogramm! It is so much better than the ones LLBean offers. Lucky for me I live in Maryland! I'll have to stop by here with my next tote!
