Sailor Style with Fursatile

  June Sailor, half the namesake of June St. George, is my 10 lb fluffy sidekick. While we call her Sailor, her name was June when I adopted her and being a true southerner she kept her beautiful long name, June Sailor Pansy.   June Sailor loves to be in charge – she has her own seat in my office and enjoys joining in on video chat meetings. But her favorite part of the day...

Valentine's Day

One of my favorite days of the year was the day I would finally get to pick out Valentine cards to share with my class. Disney Princess cards or cards that you could attach a lollypop to were my go-to favorites, but no matter what card I picked, I loved to sign my name and seal each Valentine with a tiny heart sticker. My school days may be gone, but I’m still a sucker for wide-eyed teddy bears and conversation hearts for one simple reason ...

Power of Wool

I often see people hesitate over materials for their rugs. Many less expensive rugs claim to be “stain-resistant” or “indoor/outdoor” – which sounds pretty easy, right?! Wool sounds like a much nicer material, so it must be a lot more work?   Wool rugs are not difficult to care for. I’m here to put the rumor to rest. Wool rugs are NOT difficult to care for. Wool is much more&nb...

Why Monograms?

    “A monogram, by literal definition, is a combination of letters, which are intertwined or overlapped to represent an individual, municipality, company, or kingdom. Yet, that definition does not begin to capture the essence of a monogram. What is the true meaning of a monogram, this basic form of personal expression that has remained a social constant throughout the Western world for nearly 3,000 years? A&n...

Weaving Together the Past, Present and Future

“Heirloom” is a word that carries pride and mystery. Some pass down furniture or jewelry. Some pass down quilts or wedding dresses. Some pass down stories and songs.

Having the recipe was wonderful – having the recipe in her handwriting made it ...

Thank You!

First of all, welcome to June St. George‼ I am excited to be helping you celebrate your bespoke life by creating heirlooms!
