Monogrammed Wine Glasses

These monogrammed wine glasses make great gifts and are perfect for weddings, bachelorette parties, girls night name it! These were made for a wedding and I think she'll be thrilled!

Shown is the medium size {14 oz.} using pink & green color combo.

More bags ~ personalized and ready for giving...

I just love how these pink & white market bags turned out with dark navy monogramming. So preppy, so cute! I always recommend using a bold, contrasting monogram with these bags ~ the monogram then "POPS" off the design.

These were purchased as gifts ~ now all she needs to do is bring them to their new homes!

Coming soon the website!!!

New font choices...oh yes! I love fonts and we are bringing some new ones to the website. Here is a sneak peek of one...also a peek at a new product.

We will carry these great oblong bins that are the perfect size, well for just about everything!

In about a minute...I thought of the following uses:

Store your mail, keys, sunglasses, and cell phones by the door.
Store your ipods and gym ids.
Organize your bathroom ~ put toiletries in it, roll hand towels in the guest bathroom, or fill it with decorative soaps.
Store your mail, hair accessories, stationary, school papers, holiday candy, Christmas cards, and much more!

We will have fun holiday designs and more organizing bins coming your way that are all exclusive to Monkey See Boutique.

What a great idea!

We made this bag for our newest little client, Mia. She'll use it at a pageant in a few weeks. They are having an event called, "shopping around the world" and Mia will carry her personalized drug store bag while she shops!

I am sure she'll be the cutest little shopper there!

Sneak peek...

Here a sneak peek of some new hair accessories coming to the website in the next two weeks...

I cannot wait for ya'll to see them!

My girls room...

I thought I would post some photos of my girls bedroom. It is still a work in progress {we have only been in the house for 3 weeks!}. I have some more ideas and I am going to do some vinyl designs and other pieces in the room. So far, my vision {with some help from my amazing mom} is coming to life. There is a story behind the pieces and my vision, so here goes...

It all started one year ago when my husband and I were visiting my parents in Ft. Worth. My mother works for an amazing interior designer who is also the owner of this fabulous shop in Keller, TX ~ Shoestring Interiors If you are ever in Ft. Worth, you must visit them and see the wonderful selection of home interiors and gifts Terrie has put in the store. She is truly a master. Anyhow, I went into the shop to pick up my mom after work and of course {my shopping eye, as I call it} picked up on all the fabulous things in the store. One of them, was a handmade cross. It was so powerful and beautiful...I knew I wanted it and I knew where I was going to put. I looked at my mom and said, "This is it, this is the inspiration for Samantha and Riley's big girl room." The cross' base color is chocolate brown adorned with accent colors of pink and green. I am not sure my mom had the vision then, but she was soon on board. I love the shabby chic look, but I am too bold of a personality and I love to make a statement. I wanted to mix the room up. A little shabby, a little antique, a little pop, and some tradition. Very eclectic, but hey that is me and I am beginning to realize my girls too!

The cross sat at my mom and dad's house for one year!! We found out we were moving and I held off doing anything until the move. We moved right outside of Memphis, TN with the Navy and love it. We rented a great house, in a great neighborhood and school district. As soon as we received our furniture, I was on the hunt.

LINENS: I ordered the linens before our move. I picked them out from Pinecone Hill and my mom surprised me with them!!! What a GREAT gift. She loved them just as much as I did. Monogrammed with pillows {of course!!!}.

THE BEDS: The two beds came from Haverty's. I really wanted antique beds, but just could not find them in the style I was looking for.

LARGE PRINT: The large print has the best quote, "I gave her ROSES but she blames me for the thorns" and it has a mother and daughter on it. I saw it at Shoestrings Interiors on a recent trip to Ft. Worth and knew it was the right piece as soon as I saw it!

TABLE in between the beds: from Shoestring Interiors!!! Perfect size, not too big or small. Great for navy housing too!

LAMP: Love that it is different. Chandelier style ~ just what I envisioned! Guess what? It came from Shoestring Interiors!

The MIRROR: The large mirror between the beds came from Golightly's in Ft. Worth, along with the other decorative pieces on the table.

The Dresser: came from Golightly's and the pieces on tops of the dresser came from Shoestring Interiors.

The PRINTS over the beds: are personalized prints from
Here is the link:

Of a perfect world or if we were not renting the house, the walls would be a different color and I would have dark, hand scraped wood floors. But, we don't and I am quite happy and so are my girls with the progress of their room so far. Enjoy.

Happy 4th of July

Wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th of July holiday. We are headed to Mud Island in Memphis tomorrow night for some BBQ & Fireworks at a friend's house. I just LOVE holiday weekends. I will be sure to take a picture of my hostess gift!

Our Gift Wrapping...

Do you need a gift? Do you hate to wrap? We can help you out! At MSB we always offer FREE gift wrapping for your gifts. Our gift wrap is never standard and comes with a FREE gift card at your request.

I am a big believer that the presentation of the gift {WRAPPING} is what puts a {gift} OVER THE TOP! It sets the expectation for the gift receiver.

Shown here is our standard gift wrap for a set of twins {one boy & one girl}. We have lots of options and can match your theme. For example, do you have an upcoming wedding or baby event & need gifts? We can match your colors with our gift wrap and ribbons. All it takes is a quick email or phone call. We can send you pictures of options, so everything matches perfectly.

For the holiday season, we will offer holiday specific wrapping & ribbons. Stay tuned...we will post pictures soon.
