Mind Your “P’s” and “Q’s”

We have all heard the saying mind your P’s and Q’s! Well, I like minding my P’s.
This past weekend my granddaughter decided to make a chart listing all of the letter P’s in my home. I thought it would be fun to show you all the P’s we discovered.
P's 002 (800x600)
This is in our guest room. The walls are a soft French vanilla, bedding all white with soft blue sheets, moldings are all white with a very, very soft blue ceiling. I liked the way this almost took on a shell effect.
P's 003 (800x600)
Master bath vanity with glass vessel sink and iridescent tile back splash.
P's 004 (600x800)
Guest bathroom towels done with black and white checked floors and white woodwork and toile wallpaper. All my towels are monogrammed but we did not count all the towels, way too many.
P's 005 (600x800)
Letter P on family room wall. It is from Ballard and it was gold so I brushed it with black paint.
P's 008 (800x600)
A tiny distressed framed P that is on the letter holder that is on my childhood desk.
P's 009 (800x600)
Paper weight on my desk.
P's 010 (800x600)
John Derian cream tray that is in my kitchen.
P's 012 (800x600)
Pottery Barn chalk board pitcher in the corner of my kitchen.
P's 013 (800x600)
Small cheese knife in my spooner.
P's 014 (800x600)
Cutting board to go with small cheese knife.
P's 015 (600x800)
Framed P that I made and put in a black frame that is part of a grouping of my grandchildren’s pictures in varying size of the same black frame. I am not one that can have unorganized things on the front of my fridge. I love looking at my grand kids at different ages, they are my JOY!!!
P's 016 (600x800)
Ceramic P plaque inside kitchen dish cupboard with a mirrored back.

So there you have all the letter P’s in my home. If you would like to see my Kitchen go here. Master bathroom here. Guest bathroom here!!

This was fun for me, I did not realize I had so many. Funny how you start a collection because you love something and before you know it , it is a full blown collection.

Do you have letters in your home? What do you have in your home that has become a collection before you realized it?

“Enjoy the Process” Of:
Discovering that you have a collection of something that you love!!

Hi Kathysue,
I'm sitting here with my coffee this morning and enjoying your beautiful blog. The only letter I have is one giant "W" on top of a cabinet and of course, all my monogrammed vintage linens with different monograms.

I really like how you used all your "P's"!

Ever since the Mary Tyler Moore show of the seventies (yes I am old enough to remember) I have loved large block letters. My house is filled with the letter "H" from that same ballard one (I left it gold) to a collection of rubber stamps featuring the letter H in different fonts. I encourage clients to personalize their home with at least one initial letter someplace. (gotta love those grandbabies!)

That was good for your granddaughter to have to think and look for all your P's. Love that PB pitcher.

Sue said...

You do have a lot of them. I have very few monogrammed things.

Bring Pretty Back said...

That pitcher is adorable with the little chalkboard!
Love all of your P's!
Have a "P"retty day!

Beach House Living said...

Yep that sure is a lot of "P" but they all look good!

Howdy Kathysue! What a cute collection of P's you have there. My collection of initials is pretty sparse at this point, but I'm trying to add to it.
Hugs to you~
