I never knew how important monograms were until I moved to North Carolina 9 years ago.  Monograms is a southern thing.
A must thing if you live in the South. 

I started doing monogram frames a few months ago.  
They've sold like crazy.

I really love how they turn out.  
There's something really pretty & classy about a monogram. 

Here's an example of the single letter monogram. 

This frame was a special order for a family Christmas photo.  
I love the ASCP Antibes Green up against the red chevron.

The 3 letter monogram is probably my absolute favorite!

I love the look of a monogram.

I've been working on several monogram frames lately!

 I love creating beautiful pieces for our customers!  
I will be taking a break from making frames soon so that I can focus on the wholesale side of our business.  We've had tons of inquiries about wholesale & it's something we offer but want to perfect.

If you would like to order a custom monogram frame please check out our Etsy shop for more information on ordering!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!


{Meeting Miss Mustard Seed}

Saturday I had the amazing opportunity of meeting Miss Mustard Seed.  
She was doing a book signing at SuzAnna's Antiques in Raleigh, NC & I wasn't missing it no matter what!
My awesome husband accompanied me on the 2.5 hour drive & even chatted Marian up about farming cotton! 

MMS is the reason I started my business.  I have followed her blog for years & even tried a few of her DIYs like her German glass glitter letters & ornaments.  She is a constant inspiration & her words of wisdom & truth gave me the push I needed to open Raised In Cotton Interiors.  

Marian is a real genuine person.
Her accent is adorable!
And that new short haircut is totally her!
My husband actually asked me when I was going to cut mine like that.  What? 
He was as smitten with her as I was.  

She wasn't in a rush as she signed our books.
She talked with us.  Asked us questions. 
It's what I love most about her.
She is a real person.  Just like you & I.

I could sit & talk to her for hours.  
I am so thankful she shared her talents with so many of us through her blog, paint & book!

If you get the chance to attend a book signing please do!
You won't be disappointed!

I look horrible in this picture mainly because I was so nervous.
I mean I'm standing next to Miss Mustard Seed!

She said to me, "Anything is possible." 
She is so right!

What a great day it was!
I am seriously still pinching myself & re-reading what she wrote to me in my copy of her book. 

What an honor to meet someone like her....

I've been so swamped lately with custom orders for frames {one huge wholesale} & with restocking furniture that I just haven't had time to blog. 

Through this process I've learned that I am not the most organized person & I seriously need to work on that in the new year. 

One thing I am good at is taking pictures with my phone.

So while I am waiting on some frames to try I thought I'd post a few pics from Instagram!
If you don't follow me please do!

I will be off Wednesday until Saturday as we give thanks for all that God has blessed our family with this year. 

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
