What’s in a Name?

I feel as though I travel around the world every day just checking in with customers – and some of them have the most entrancing place names!  Runaway Bay!  I would love to!


Ngaruawahia could only be in New Zealand






Tater Peeler Road – now where could that be?  Doesn’t sound like a city name


Sassafras River Drive MUST be in the South







Okeechobee – Florida










Chemin des Rayols is easy – my old stamping ground, Haute Provence






Pat’s Croft Eyot – Rattie, Toad and Mole, on the Thames







Shute Harbour in the Whitsundays sounds warmer though – maybe it’s time I made house calls…

Ah, how my mind wanders!

    Wow. Your customers live in some unusual and very beautiful places. They would be wonderful places to visit.

    I can imagine saying, “I’m gonna getaway to Runaway Bay”! Sounds fab :)

    I wish I lived in some exotic locale! Oh well, I can dream of these places as I sleep on my beautiful linens— in my boring suburban neighborhood.

    A little quiet here in DC, too. But we are lucky to have neighbors from all over the world.
