Monogram Monday:  A Cherished Heirloom

March 31, 2014


There is nothing more pleasant than finding a vintage monogram tucked in a trove of antique linens. Jane Scott was lucky enough to inherit her great-great grandmother's trousseau as well as her monogram initials. These very pieces were the initial spark behind Leontine Linens. The…
