I've decided to name my house. It will also serve as a 'business' name if I ever get ambitious enough to create some fiber related items to sell. It would also be the name of my rabbitry.......such as it is.
I wanted something charming, but not too cute....my townhouse is tiny, so something diminutive would serve......I mulled over a few names, but today I think it came to me. Wren Cottage.
For someone reading this but not living in this area, we had a lot of snow overnight. One of my first tasks was to go out and fill the bird feeder on my deck. All sorts of birds visited today - the usual Doves and Sparrows, some loudmouth young Grackles, Red and Purple Finches, Titmice, Chickadees, a female Cardinal, Juncos, then late in the day, a little brown Wren. The others were certainly flashier, but there was something appealing about that little bird with her jaunty tail (I like to think it was a her). It perched on a flower pot and stayed a long time after eating. I tried to get a photo, but it flew away.
I've been searching the net for images of wrens. I would like to use one as a model to paint a sign for the front of my house - and I also want to do a small version of one of those great 'barn quilts' for the back deck of my 'farm.'
I think giving my house a name will give it more personality than just a house, and names need not be reserved for just rural property.
