These sweet pups remind me of my puppy sisters, Roxanne and Lexie Anne!
We got Roxanne when I was a junior in high school. Both my sisters were already in college, and even though I had two more years of high school left, Mom considered her and my stepdad, Mark, empty nesters already (insert eye roll here...).
Living with Roxy those two years was truly like having a little sister--she sometimes got on my nerves, received all of the attention from our parents, comforted me when I was sad or sick, accompanied me in my last "first day of school" photo, and always gave me hugs and kisses any and every time we were together.
And when I went off to college, I hoped she wouldn't forget about me.
Good news, Roxy did not forget about me! And now we have another Great Dane sister, Lexie, who Mom and Mark adopted shortly after I came home from Georgia.
Lexie is the sweetest and also the clumsiest, but we love her to pieces. Now Roxy has a little sister that she gets annoyed with more often than not, but I know deep down she loves her, too!
"Mommy, I Don't Wear Dresses..."
The white ones always remind me of my debutante ball years back. My friends and I had the most fun! The next day I was so sad about it being over that I sulked around the house in my dress.
I'm not dramatic at all...
"Do you even own anything that doesn't have your monogram on it?"
For me, the answer is no. I have what some would call an unhealthy relationship with monograms, I can't help it! But if having too many is wrong, then I do not want to be right.
|1. Bedding: Belle Epoque 2. Monogrammed by Miller Monograms (sadly they no longer have their physical store but plenty goodies on their website!) 3. Banana leaf lumbar pillow cover (pillow insert I just bought from target) 4. Banana leaf lamp shades are from Etsy and the bases are from Target (I bought lamps from Target and simply switched out their shades--similar ones here and here!)|
|I actually painted this one all by myself with a little help from Ashley at Miller Monograms! They had a girls' Craft Night Out that I couldn't pass up. This beauty is proudly displayed in my guest room!|
|1. I love my door hanger from Swoozie's! 2. My banana leaf indoor/outdoor couch pillows are from Etsy.|
|So I can't say I painted this one. I did however, order the vinyl monogram from Swoozie's, bought a blank canvas, and stuck it on there myself! That's about the extent of my DYI-ing at The Mint Cottage...|
I honestly don't really have any memories as they relate to monograms, I just love them!
So if nothing else, then I guess you could say I'm reminded of all the dollars I've spent on all my monogrammed goodies (insert shoulder shrug here)...
