Name That Cottage!

Beach Bum Bauble: sterling silver, dyed shell, yarn covered beads, lobster clasp

And I'll ship this little beauty to you via my new postman. You have to come up with the best idea, I have to choose you're idea (after a consultation with Dr. Gooch) and you have five days to do it. I'll post the winning idea on July 29th. Here are a few photos (taken this afternoon) to refresh your memory. We're still "putting together" the inside...

Maybe you have to have built it yourself to name it...but I can't wait until that happens. It can be in a different language--the ones we "use" (and that term itself is used lightly) around the house: French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and some German on rare occasion. And...if you don't wear necklaces....well, I'm sure I'll think of something. Bonne chance! Uspecka! Good luck!



Oh, and here's Hazel in a hat.

I can see why dad won so many contests as a kid. I'm going out this morning to take a SOLO walk on the beach and ponder a name for your cottage.

La Maison Rouge

Okay, so I don't have any good ideas, but I do agree that the cottage should be named!

Ok, I may be boring, but I really liked The Cottage. Simple and sweet.

The Comeaux Family said...

while i would love to win your pink and green bauble, i can not offer a new name. i agree with a previous comment..."the cottage" seems perfect

Kurt Knudsen said...

I'm afraid "the cottage" is just a bit too generic. It could apply to anyone's home, as well as to cheese.

I enjoy reading your blog but have never commented before. However that is such a beautiful necklace. And I love trying to find names for lovely things.

So if I were to have a cottage place for me and my four kids I would call it--

Lark Song Cottage

(because my house always seems to be chirrping like a nest in the spring time).
