Linens from Siena Continued

Yesterday I told you about the fabulous linens that I purchased last summer in Siena.

Today I’ll fill you in on what has happened with them since I returned!

My friend, Peggy Goldstein, creates the most beautiful monograms and I knew that she would be my go-to person for personalizing the napkins I bought in Siena.

I was so excited when she called to let me know that they were ready to pick up.  A visit to her home studio is a delight in itself…

Peggy had gone the extra mile and added a white thread to outline my cipher that really made each one “pop”…
