WHITE COTTON TABLE WARE

White Cotton artistry celebrates the character that comes from owning an item for a long time – it becomes faded, scratched and worn because someone has loved it and kept it in their family.    The gifts I have loved have been scratched from the moves, worn smooth from touch or from being treasured.

My designs have the “character” that comes from time – they will appear chipped, worn or faded.  I believe this gives them the patina that creates a home with warmth and history.  Each piece is unique – no two items are exactly alike.  They are all imperfect and worn – showing the wear that comes from being treasured.    I hope you enjoy my designs as much as I enjoy creating them.

       Gifts have always been very important to me – and I always search for the most meaningful one for brides and special occasions.  I never want to give just a piece of silverware or a dish – or any item that won’t be special or stand out to the recipient.  The wedding gift that stood out most to me was a tray with my marriage initials engraved into the center.  It was my most treasured gift because I was so excited to see my initials intertwined with my fiance’s.   Because this was my most treasured gift, I decided to create something similar that I could give.  This is how my trays began.    As I began painting them – I fell in love with the monogram even more than the single initial.  One day as I was painting this beautiful design, I was struck with the fact that it is a perfect symbol of marriage.  Marriage is designed to be the union between husband and wife – as they leave their family to become “one”. 

As I began to search out the origination of the monogram, I came across this definition

 “The decorative combination of letters known as monograms and ciphers are often interchanged to a point where the distinction between the two may have disappeared in all but scholarly circles. Strictly speaking, a monogram is the combination of two or more letters in such a way that one letter forms part of another and the overall design cannot easily be separated (Fig. 3).”

This description declares that the  “letters combine in such a way that one letter forms part of another and the overall design cannot easily be separated.”  In a day when marriages can be easily separated – the monogram illustrates the forming of “one” overall design.  In marriage, God designed us to become one – so that no one can tell where one begins and the other ends.  A beautiful example of “oneness”.   This is my favorite symbol for weddings and anniversaries – or any special occasion that deserves a personal and meaningful gift. ”   Diann

PERSONALIZED PLACEMATS

These began with a desire to have a placemat that wouldn’t wrinkle or stain – and one that would coordinate with your decor and could be left on the table between meals.

I have painted several styles – but my current placemat is simple and stylish- and will easily coordinate with your dishes.

 Choose from Barn Wood Khaki, Spa Green or Blue Mist with white letters.  They also come in classic white, barn wood khaki, Spa Green or Blue Mist,  with no design.  Each placemat is fully backed with cork and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Placemats are $18.00 each.

    Hi Diane, We have round tables in both my dining and room and kitchen, consequently I can only use a round or an oval placemat. We do prefer a round and was wondering if you make either a round or an oval and what the prices would be for either of them? Thanks so very much and I look forward to hearing back from you soonest. I am leaving for England next Wednesday, April 2nd, so I woulld like to place an order prior to my departure if it would be possible? thanks I look forward to hearing from you.

    • Hi Val,

      Thank you for your interest in my placemats! I have been out of town and am just now catching up with my orders. It looks like you are in England now, but if you are still interested, just let me know. We don’t make round placemats, but I make square placemats that fit on a round table. The square placemats are $16.00 each. They are 12″ x 12″ and I will send a picture of them on a round table. You can email me at dianncotton@me.com also.

      Thank you!,
      Diann
