Who's house is it?!.

I would like to introduce you to Nana's House or could it be Ethel's House?!.

 The new name for the business. I just can't decide.

 I love both these names. But don't know which I prefer.

 Nana's house.
 Because my customers tell me that they always feel so nostalgic when buying something from me. A teapot that reminds them of Nana Pam. A washboard reminiscent of dear Nana Doris. Love.

 Ethel's house.
 My mums mum and her nan were both called Ethel.
 This is also our chosen name if we were ever to have another baby girl.
  But the main reason behind this name is that my mum always tell me that my taste in interiors and home design reminds her of  great Nana Ethel. We always pour over old photos of her and I ooh and ahh at the fabulous retro curtains and my mum tells me stories about our family from up north. More love.

 So this is the question guys;

 Is it Nana's House or Ethel's House????. (P.S I am undecided on the colour for the logo so just went with blue for today. No doubt it will be a variety of colours before I finally decide).

  2. I think I prefer Ethel's House too. Are you coming out of What The Butler Saw? I did pop in a few weeks back, just before we had that snow. I haven't been able to get to Leigh for a mooch for a few weeks now though. Good luck with your new venture!

    1. I am staying at what the butler saw but will be clearing all current stock to bring in fresh. Will be a few weeks yet as have lots to do. Xx

  3. I think Ethel's house is the one.I bought a gorgeous tin from your place yesterday and would love to say I got it from "Ethel's House"! xx P xx

    1. How wonderful! :D enjoy the tin. And I think Ethel's a keeper Xx

  4. I think Ethel's house is perfect! V personal to you but also relatable for everyone else! xxxx
