Hi I'm MARY, a multi-disciplinary designer and stylist based in Winter Park, Florida. Previously a Creative Director at Bonnier, I'm currently running a boutique floral design business, teaching a college course on web design, working on freelance graphic design and styling projects as they come, and sustainably restoring a 1930's Florida bungalow.

I started this blog in 2008 for no reason really, other than to save and share things that inspired me, with occasional peeks at some of my work. I'm bringing it back now as a journal of my creative endeavors, in hopes of (maybe) discovering which I like best.

friendship cloth

I think this friendship cloth is such a cute idea. It's a party tablecloth that everyone signs and then someone embroiders the signatures. Apparently Tim's family used to have a tradition very similar to this at his grandmother's house. Every time family would come over for dinner, they would sign a note with a sharpie on a white tablecloth until the tablecloth was filled over the course of a few years. I don't think they ever embroidered any of them, but that would be such a nice touch.

This is a wonderful idea. I wouldn't want to be the one to do all of that embroidery, though.

Do you have a picture of the entire table cloth? Did you embroider everything on it?
