Enchanting Cottage's

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

Do you have a favorite word? My two favorite words are enchanting cottage.
I just love the way they sound.
E N C H A N T I N G ~~~~~~~C O T T A G E!!! My husband thinks I have issues YOU THINK! When I think of enchanting cottage these are some pictures that come to my mind.

This is how I came up with my blog name. I love those two words and what they mean to me.
How did you decide on your blog name? I would love to hear your story!

Thank-you for your visit today,

I love how you came up with the name. It means something that you love, and it's easy to grow/build on that. Enchanting Cottage...it really does sound so...well "Enchanting."

My blog name~ Over twenty years ago, my husband and I planted a little stick of a Willow tree on our property. We dreamed of the day our "grandchildren" would be able to climb it. Little did we know then that the tree grew fast, just like our children, and it was our own children that would play & climb on the Willow tree. Years later, knowing I always wanted to own my own business it just seemed a perfect fit. Under the Willow....

Hi Ginger, Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I love "having company." I have only been blogging since the first week in May. My daughter and I sat on her deck and started listing names - crazy ones and otherwise! We laughed and had a good time and she remembered that under my Yearbook picture was this couplet,"The rose has but a summer's reign, the daisy never dies." We tossed it around and came up with "The Daisy Chain!"
I wrote about it in my second or third post!

Hi Ginger, I have been so busy at church and in the yard that I haven't had time to visit. I am glad that today is the day I paid my first call in a while.

My blog name came from the license plates we have in Saskatchewan. We are so flat that all you see is sky and farmers fields. It is said that we have some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets in Canada. Don't really know if that is true but I love the openness of our prairies.

God bless.

Hmmm...let's see...I love silver, cottages, sparkely, and shiny things, hence, Silver Bell Cottage. Hope you have a great day.

That's a clever way to come up with your blog name. I love the your name HMMM maybe because it has the word cottage in it!
I am glad to see your blog is up again.

Great name and great pictures. Wow! Wow! Wow! Do you know how I chose the name for my blog? I was toying with several ideas but didn't really like any of them. My Hubby suggested how about At Home in Scottsdale. I liked it and went with it.

June 2, 2008 at 12:15 PM

Charlotte, I think your blog name is perfect! It is not very likely that someone else will use that name. I have notice a couple like mine (SO SAD)

Hi Miss Ginger! Oh my, oh my....!! These photos are wonderful!!!!!!! I love each one of them. There is a house here in town that looks a lot like the brick two story with the ivy growing on it. Yes, these are wonderful cottages. I love your blog name, too! I have several favorite words.....humdinger, NO!, whatchamacallit, whosits, tit for tat, gnarly, you're kidding!?...just for a few....

love ya!
PS: I have no idea what happened to Carmen's blog. So sad to see our friends close their sites down.

B E A U T I F U L!!! I want to live in a cottage home! That's my dream... Lovely blog! Blessings, Vanessa

I love knowing that you truly love enchanting cottages!

Lavender Hill Studio, came from the name of my Website, www.lavenderhillstudio.com where I sell my mosaics and vintage teacup chandeliers.

I came up with the name, because I love lavender. We have it growing all around outside. And we live on a mountain. And I have my studio in my home. But Lavender Mountain Studio, just didn't sound right.... So it became Lavender Hill Studio.

OH Penny, I just love your name it is just sooo~~~~~~~~~ perfect,and your web page is beautiful! Thank-you for sharing your name with us.

Hey Ginger, we just came over via BJ's blog & thought we'd share....
The Summer Kitchen Interiors is our store name (pretty boring, we know) However, our store at one time, use to be an old Summer Kitchen off of our parents home. It is where Karrie first started her floral shop when she got back from school. About four years later, she grew out of it, we built the exisiting location right behind the original, and I joined in - and here we are - Glad to be in blogland meeting such wonderful people!!
Love your Enchanting Cottage name - it caught our eye to check it out - loved the pictures too!!

Hi Ginger,
You are the true definition of a kindered spirit!
What a blessed lady you are!
Here's to another lunch at the Bank's in Temecula!

Hi Ginger
My blog name, rose coloed glasses comes from two sources. My glasses are pink and I do try to look at life with optimism, ie rose colored glasses.

I had a hard time coming up with a name for my blog…
So many of my idea were already taken….

I just put together a few things that I liked....pink and gate.
At first I was “The PINK Front Gate” but after a while I change my banner and
put “At the pink Gate” I am playing with the idea of changing it again…
Maybe to “Through the Pink Gate”

I really like your blog name...I too love the word Enchanting..


June 4, 2008 at 7:31 AM

Iw, The pink gate is so pretty! I love garden gates to begin with, and pink. I know once we get bloggin then we kinka get a feel of different ways we need to change our names. Thank-you for stopping by.

I love how you came up with your blog name. I came up with mine because my home and gardens bring me so much serenity. I knew I'd probably be talking about them a lot. Terrie

June 4, 2008 at 9:21 PM

I love the way you came up with your name. We have a lot in common.

June 5, 2008 at 12:33 AM

Yep, that's exactly what comes to MY mind when I hear those words!! Visit with me, my sweet chickadee!

June 9, 2008 at 12:16 AM

Great post! Love how you got your name. Mine is pretty boring.

June 23, 2008 at 7:31 PM

They truly are enchanting cottages. Each one pulls at the heart strings.
Have an enchanted day!
