what's in a name? part 2




after reading and rereading all your lovely comments on the post what's in a name, and spending lots of wasted hours on google, and with dictionaries and a thesaurus this is what I've come up with.

Opinion was divided, which made it harder, but there was advice to stick with driftwood, or at least with what feels right, and it did, but on its own it didn't work, and whilst I really liked both driftwood dreams and driftwood designs thanks Lesley and Gina they both had links. and then last night in bed whilst reading Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros (yes I often read recipe books in bed...) she was writing about childhood, and special times, and linking experiences like a daisy chain.... so driftwood and daisies..

I've set up an etsy shop to ensure I get to choose the name after taking so long to pick it, but no doubt it will be months before I ever work out how to open/design/stock it, let alone make any thing for it... but it's a start right.

so thank you, thank you for all your help, I couldn't do this without you!


  1. Congratulations! I look forward to seeing your creations on etsy!

  2. That's a lovely name, and congratulations from me too!

  3. Great name - can't wait to see you up and running!

  4. That's a really good name - nice to have it all sorted for the start of the year!

  5. I like that name - it would make me want to take a look at your stuff just because of the name.

    I read Tessa Kiros in bed too!

  6. Oh I love it!! Sounds very catchy and can't wait to see your shop up and running. I was reading Tessa's Falling Cloudberries in bed last week! :O)

  7. Love the way you have resolved your name dilemma, it makes me think of lazy warm summer days, and I imagine very "you" somehow. I think a daisy flower would make a lovely simple logo/label too. Can't wait to see your etsy shop open, very exciting for you (and us!)
    ps very jealous of your new year in Staithes, how I love that little place.

  8. Lovely name! And wonderful to hear you're taking step to realize your shop dream--hooray! Looking forward to hearing and seeing more as the days go by. Happy week ((HUGS))

  9. Yay!! Driftwood and Daisies! That's gorgeous. Good luck with sorting your shop out.

  10. fantastic combination - daisies can be wild or not and can be worked into wonderful designs/logos.

  11. Love the name. It is a great choice and very versatile. Sooooo looking forward to your Etsy shop too. Love the gingham bags with the hearts.

  12. I think Driftwood & Daisies is a great name. It sounds just right. And you can't go wrong with Daisies lol it's a beautiful name.
    Our little Daisy is a pretty as a flower.

    Good luck with it.

  13. What a wonderful name - it suits you!

    I love Apples for Jam. She writes so movingly about her children that there are certain pages I can't get past without welling up. And she calls them Mice, which is what we use for our little ones. Plus the recipes all work so far ;-) I wish I'd written it!
