African Violets...and a Pendant Giveaway!

I bought a pink African Violet at the grocery store last night. It's going to live on my dining room table. I hope my cats don't eat it.

My plant needs a name though. Maybe I'll be less likely to kill it if I give it a name and treat it like a pet.

Devon says we should call it "Violet." Uh, boring.

But I can't think of anything better so I need your help.

----------CONTEST IS CLOSED 5/8/09----------

Leave a comment with your suggestions!

The best name will win their choice of any Scrabble tile pendant or small glass tile pendant from my shop!

Giveaway ends a week from today on Thursday 5/7/09.

Please include your email address in your comment so I can contact you if you win!

The winner will also be announced on my blog next Friday 5/8/09.

  1. you're so right, Violet is...well so obvious. How about; Petunia ? :)

  2. I think you should name her Celeste la fleur.

  3. The first thing that popped into my head was "Clementine". So, there you go!

  4. vivian...means full of life. Maybe that way the black thumb wont get her :)

  5. I had a great-aunt named Violet who everyone called "Tiny"-I think the nickname was derived from the "shrinking violet" thing-but she was anything but tiny-anyhow-call your plant Tiny and perhaps like my great-aunt Tiny, she will grow.:-D


  6. well, I am HORRIBLE at naming but when i first saw your pet, I thought of "Amaryllis" (also a flower but can be a name!), "Nova" or "Ramona".

    and i loooooooooove your pendants!

  7. Ah, maybe either Calliope or Celandine?

  8. Call it 'Honey Girl' that way she will know she is loved and will thrive.

  9. dont know why, but "carmen" popped into my head... you could always just call it "boo boo" like i do with our kitty lol

  10. Looks like pinkie to me:) not the finger..just pink + ie..sounds kinda cute:)


Leave me some love.
