The other day I got a little goodie in the mail and it had a tag, on which was a little Japanese doll image. Mini thought that was great and said she'd like a doll from Japan like the doll on the tag. I threw "Japanese Doll", or something like that into Google Images, and found a sweet little card with this image on it. I printed, enlarged, traced onto embroidery paper, and stitched away. She is stitched on White Linen and stuffed with Organic Cotton fluff. I love how she came out!
We are trying to figure out a name for our homestead. It's been quite tricky. My business name is Zoozii's. It's a fun name, visually pleasing, short, uses an uncommon letter so it catches attention. All good things. Though many people have no idea how to pronounce it. It's pronounced Zoozy or Zoo-Zee. See, picking a business name is tricky. Not that the homestead is a major business, but at some point I'm hoping to have the opportunity to sell excess. I'm thinking that I'll have Rabbit, Duck, maybe a couple chickens, the eggs for sure, and who knows, maybe some produce, over the next few months.
Husband likes "Unicornucopia Farm". This is from a Joy Electric Song, and he's always liked the word. Unicornicopia. It is fun to say. It's like a combo of unicorn and cornucopia. Not sure how it really relates to our homestead…a fantasy of plenty? But, again, it's fun to say, if people can figure out how to say it. I personally would rather have "Homestead" than "Farm" in the name, if it's going to have either. I'm not sure we are, or ever really will be, a Farm. That seems far more grand that what I have in mind. I want a homestead, something that supplies all the food we need, and a bit more. Any thoughts from all of you would be welcome, either regarding Husband's suggestion, or a name in general.
A fun little treat on the Homestead this morning…a baby Muscovy.
This poor mama has had me pulling baby after baby out from under her because they were Cayuga's that hatched last week. Today, when I saw the adorable little baby resting on it's mama's back, I was pleased to not have to take it away. She only hatched the one today, so I'm hoping tomorrow there will be a nest full.
There are chicks pipping away in eggs in the incubator, which is exciting.
