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

for the elephants, i suggest ‘sunset pachyderms’

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

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!)



An Elephant is Faithful, 100%

Dottie’s Perch for the birds on couches


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


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


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!


What wonderful fabrics and great names!

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


gosh what fun.. I am doing most of my little place in Yellow
1. Fig’s Pachyderm’s
2. Figgy’s 4 the Birds

OK… I’d say “Indian summer” for the elephants and “On the field” for the birds on couches…

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.


how about “perched” for the birds?
