“birds-eye view”

Bronwyn | June 9th, 2009 at 12:34 am

how about “perched” for the birds?

KarenLR | June 9th, 2009 at 7:26 am

Seeing Elephants – reminds me of the scene in Dumbo when they get liquored up and see colored and patterned elephants everywhere.

Le Parlour Perch or Parlour Perch – sofa reminds me of a Queen Anne style you’d find in a Victorian parlor.

Stephanie | June 9th, 2009 at 11:16 am

What about “Patterned Parade” for the elephants, and “Cozy Perch” for the birds on couches?
I do love your fabrics. They are so creative!

ValArt | June 9th, 2009 at 1:25 pm

1. How about Heffalump Sorbet. (Heffalumps are from Winnie the pooh and Christopher Robin)

2. Blue sofas of happiness

TwoPackRats | June 9th, 2009 at 1:26 pm

1: kaleidoscope parade (parade or herd works for a collective of elephants, i believe)

2: What a nest!
Lovely fabrics! So vibrant and fun!

Kait | June 9th, 2009 at 3:57 pm

Treasured Trunks -(elephants)

Tufted Tweets-(birds on sofas)

Just love the yellow.

Jacqui from Mee a Bee | June 10th, 2009 at 10:13 am

cousette | June 10th, 2009 at 10:50 am

violet lewis | June 11th, 2009 at 12:35 pm

What wonderful fabrics and great names!

How about:
Elephants-Lona, meaning “beautiful, pretty” in the language of their native homeland, India.

Anna | June 11th, 2009 at 3:39 pm

For the first one, I like “Pachyderms on Parade”
For the second fabric, how about “Empty Nesters” (The couches look lonely without people, and clearly if the bird is on the sofa, the nest is empty!

Ginger | June 11th, 2009 at 4:56 pm

Oops- realized the idea of a Pachyderm parade was already suggested. How about “Perplexed Pacvhyderm”- (that little guy looks like he might be lost!)

Ginger | June 11th, 2009 at 5:00 pm

Marula Majik for the ellies and Little Bird Blu’ for the sofa fabric

hayley | June 12th, 2009 at 4:05 am

An Elephant is Faithful, 100%

Dottie’s Perch for the birds on couches

Maggie | June 13th, 2009 at 10:42 am

Because I love the elephants SO much, I’m tossing out a couple.

-Tembo (or something with Tembo…)- means elephant in Swahili

-Masinde (an east African surname, but somehow it reminds me of the fabric!)

(My birthday is the 17th so I’m holding out that you LOVE my names, haha!)


Gin | June 14th, 2009 at 8:30 pm

for the elephants, i suggest ‘sunset pachyderms’

[LOVE this color scheme, it’s my current favourite!!]

lesley [smidgebox designs] | June 15th, 2009 at 11:06 pm

for the birdies on couches, i suggest ‘high tea, teal birds’
