Traveling Prairie Girl Celebrates...


Photobucket


i'm off girls to meet two boys, a queen, a fancy farmgirl {hopefully} and a shabby bella...just to name a few...

i cannot tell you how excited this prairie girl is...

another dream of mine finally coming true...

the finds are going to be absolutely amazing and i feel like celebrating don't you?!?

so...

i think it is about time that this little lady had a name...




Photobucket

she has been my pride and joy, she has made my shops what they are today and added a little something different to this simple blog of mine...

so girls let's give HER something to be proud of!

simply leave a little comment for her letting her know what fabulous, unique, vintage-inspired, romantic prairie name you would give her...

once i get back from the barn i will put your suggestions to the toughest critics...

3 opinionated, out-spoken, rowdy, prairie kids and one down to earth, wanting to name everything sam {including all three children, horses, dogs, cattle what-not} cowboy husband... :0)

my darling cow and i look forward to seeing what you all come up with...

winner will receive a box full of faded, chippy, rusted, white, goodness {is that incentive enough?!?} from this prairie girl's trip to the great northwest

good luck and i'll see you back here on the prairie monday!!

I think she looks like an Ethel. Or a Bertha or an Edna, or a BETSY. Or a Betty! Sorry I couldn't stick with one. ...I LOVE naming things!

Tina Eudora said...

I know it sounds crazy but the first thing to pop into my head (it's early, lol) was Tumbleweed. It will be fun to see what everyone comes up with. Have a wonderful trip and lots of fun! Oh and good morning kids!

(after willa cather...)

Polly said...

Enjoy yourself!

How about Maizy?

Lolo said...

Oh you all will have a grand time! How fun that you all can meet up and hang out while perusing all the vintage loveliness!!

Ok....she looks like an Abigail (Abby)or Victoria....
Queen Victoria that is :) She does have a crown!

Cant wait to see what "Victoria's Vintage Finds" will be.... :D

Crystal said...

I just really think Maybelle is always the best name for a cow.

she dreams big! said...

Franny Pauline (FP - faded prairie).

You are livin the dream girl! Find lots, 'kay?

Tamra said...

Bessie. sounds like "dressy" but I remember in old cowboy movies hearing cows often referred to as Bessie or ol' Bess.

Although with her crown you could just call her "Queen".

Have a wonderful and safe trip. Look forward to hearing all the details!

kpaints said...

Farmgirl Flossie....ok, sorry it is still early for me...have a great trip here in our Northwest!
Got another one....Morning Glory.

karen★ said...

oooohhh, the idea of winning such a perfect prize is making me feel a whole lot more pressure than i probably should...

*Savanna Bliss*

(exceptional happiness on a beautiful prairie...)

(tell your children that i tried really hard to think of something rough & wild for them, but looking at that sweet cow, it just had to be something pretty.)

I hope you come home with a lot of new finds!

Vintage Junky said...

hmmmm... this is hard... I like naming things too... how about Stella...
have fun!

The Tattered Cottage said...

How about Josephine?

ang diehl said...

Special K-
You're going to have such a fun time in your element there w/those Barn House boys & crew! My son (age 4) suggests "Fiona" as in Fiona from the well-loved movie, Shrek =) I adore a stately name like Whilimena ("Mia" for short ;) &/or Isabella ("Bella" for short ;). Take good care...bring back some cool prairie finds!
Hugs, angie d. xo

Cheryl Ann Shipman said...

How about something a little dignified...like Miss Eleanor? Ellie for short? Also, her initials would be ME...sort of cool. BTW, envious of your little excursion!

Signs and Salvage said...

Ruthie...that is a good Farm Name...well it was my Granny's name and she was an Iowa Farm Girl:)

Hope you have a wonderful trip...

Take Care,

Kristin

Julia said...

Gosh, I wish I was going, too! I live in the Northwest:). Hope you have a GREAT time!! As far as naming your cutsie cow...I can't just pick one, either! So, I'll share my personal list of cow names with you:)... watch out, it's a big one...Adelaide, Beatrice, Beulah, Charlotte, Clara, Clovis, Clementine, Dorothy, Emmylou, Flossie, Gertrude, Harriet, Louisa, Maeve, Marigold, Matilda, Mavis, Rosalind, and Millicent.

~Julia

Jent said...

Clementine!

poppies said...

How about Elsie?

cityfarmer said...

I'm envisioning you in your element!

"Queen Charolais" ... well she is French isn't she?


The Charolais Cattle Breed was developed in the area around Charolles in Central France, where the French had been keeping records on them for more than 200 years. Charolais is the first continental breed to be imported into Great Britain. This cow came to the United States in 1934 when the Mexican Secretary of Agriculture gave Mecum Michaelis of Kyle, Texas, two Charolais bulls.

Cheyenne said...

My oh my, I wish I was travelling along with you. I hope you have the best time...

I think you should name her Royal Brina or Brina RoyalE...;) With my good ol Irish self, I had to go with an Irish name...Brina...meaning strong. You need to be strong to withstand the wind, ice, cold, heat of of the blazing prairie sun...You just need to be plain strong to live on the prairie...whether you are a wife, daughter, sister...or gosh, a cow, I think the prairie breeds strength.

Sarah said...

Daizy Mae or Daizy Bell
I love both of those. Can't wait to see what they pick!

Deb said...

Have a fantastic time!
For your sweet cow ~ here are some name suggestions ...
*Gypsy *Anna Mae * Nevaeh * Maude *
*Magnolia* Lorelei * (lady)Godiva*
*Ophelia* Imogene* Jezabell* *Penelope* Sadie* Valentine* Jolene(Jo)*Lillie*

Farmgirl Paints said...

First name to pop in my head was Bessie. But then I saw that was already taken and I love my momma and her name is Dixie! So I think that's my favorite...DIXIE:)

Miss Sew & So said...

hi lovely...

for me she is a MAISIE...

a beautiful strong but gentle friend....

a vintage gal with a modern twist...a maisie...

miss.maisie

Gail said...

First thought to mind was 'Jersey'. Have a great trip.

Toodie said...

Have a wonderful trip. When I was young there was a famous cow named Elsie. Jist ah thought.

sandra said...

How about GENEVIEVE, LADY GENEVIEVE? I think its sounds a little like royalty with her crown and all. Have fun, can't wait to hear her new name!!!! I am crossing my fingers.....

Amy said...

She definitely looks like a "Darla". Have an amazing trip!

AntiqueChase said...

Molly~

AntiqueChase said...

or Lucy~

Martha said...

what about Elaine? Is that already taken or I could be awful and say Martha:) lol...

Leah C said...

When I think of cows, names like Elsie or Gussie come to mind...but how about "Moozy" or "PrairieBelle" for her name?

Leah C said...

I thought of another one...comes from my favorite book{To Kill A Mockingbird}...Miss Maudie:)

Allure of Whites said...

Miss Bella...meaning she's the most beautiful girl you will ever see. Every feature that she posseses is engraved in your mind from the second you lay eyes on her. Bella is not limited to just physical features, her personality is equally as beautiful. You wonder how it is that a creature this extraordinary can exist, but find yourself just appreciating the fact that she exists, and even better yet, that you know her. :)

Karen said...

She looks like our cow when I was growing up. Her name was Fawne.

Andrea - Faded Plains said...

Oh...I love naming things...I name everything too. Let's see...I think she looks like an Emmie (or Emmy). I hope you have the best time at the sale.

Painted Prairie said...

Oh I hope you have fun! Can't wait to see what you bring home!
I love the name Delilah or Etta Mae!

Heaven's Walk - said...

Clara
Isabella
Nora
Liliana
Emma
Delilah Blue
Gabi
Jette'
or Ruby Tuesday?

LOL!

Elizabeth (blue clear sky) said...

Have a wonderful trip!
I think she should be Josephine.

Marci said...

SHUT UP! i cannot tell you how truly jealous i am!! have sooo much fun and oh have soooo much fun!!

sharon said...

With her crown she looks so regal,
Her name can't possibly be crude,
So I think if she were my pal,
I would call her Queen Gertrude!

Happy naming
Sharon
My French Country Home

Curtains In My Tree said...

I like the name Ollie or Georgie.

I had great aunts with those names.


of course Clementime is an old prarie name.

Peggy said...

Too Funny! I just love the pic of the woman holding the suit case! I like to keep things simple so I would call her Moma. Have fun!

from me to thee......... said...

MISS FANCY UDDERS

smiles, Linda

* French Farmhouse 425 * said...

Lulu Bell
Poppy
Lola
Gertrude
Penelope
Louise
Fanny
Bertha Mae

~just a few suggestions~ :)Rachel

A Lasting First Impression said...

Well, She is a royal cow, so I would say Glitzie, "Queen" Glitzie, or more traditional with Queen Belle. Would love to win...so fun! Hope you had a great weekend, can't wait to hear about it!

bella said...

Hi Kristen,
I hope you had a safe trip home. Did you find lots of prairie treasures?
Thank you SO much for making the long trip North , I loved , Loved having the chance to meet you. Tell your sweet husband THANK YOU !
xo
Sue

GaGa said...

I love your cow with a crown! I like the name Etta Plum - right from the Little House on the Prairie!

By the way...lucky you to be on a trip to the BH! Hope you had fun and I look forward to reading about your trip. L.

Cyndi said...

I think she looks like Esmerelda when she needs to be fancy and Esme when it's family and close friends. Love your blog!

Peggy said...

Hi Kristin. Me again. I used you as a link on my blog site. Hope you don't mind I shared. I love how you alter your photos. Thanks so much

shabbyloft said...

I Think "Miss Lilly Langtree" .... That is my horses name. When she was born she slept in my lap all day as her Mommy got sick. I love it and I call her Lilly now. Stanna

WhiteWhispers2u said...

I would say Big Mac or Miss Mac except she is a Girl so I would then say Jersey Girl.~Cheers Kim

Junque Couture said...

Her Majesty...or Lady jane

Gracie's Cottage said...

Oh - loads of great names already suggested. I think her middle name should definitely be Samantha, that way certain folks can rightfully refer to her as "Sam".
First name? Hmmmmm..she looks like an Amelia, Hermione, Glennis...

Looking forward to reading about your trip!

Jan

Debra said...

I think she looks like a DUCHESS DAISY or one or the other . Very stoic and yet country as well ! :O)

Cheers!
Debra

krys kirkpatrick said...

I stumbled on your blog...from another blog...you know the routine. Beautiful. I love your esthetic.

Farmgirl Chaos said...

Well shoot! Somewhere I completely missed this post. Sorry! My name suggestion is Josie. I was also thinking Layla. Or Millie. I don't know which one I like better now. :)

Orphaned Decor said...

I love your blog and your style.
I found your blog from a posting about Barn House. I am so jealous that you got to go.
I got to meet one of the Barn Boys in Oregon City at a show.
I also love your cow gal.
I think a cute name would be Her Majesty Divine Bovine or Ms. D for short. I will be back. Leslie

Michele said...

My first thought was Clara Belle, then there was Mildred (Millie), but then there was Emmaline & Caroline. Honestly I can't pick just one - however will you?
Can't wait to hear. Thanks so much for the generous giveaway opportunity - there's going to be one happy cow (it's hard wandering thru life without a name) and one happy reader in the future!

Kat said...

"Her Moojesty" might like a commoner's name: Nellie May.

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

What a funny game.... I'm going for Queen Isabella....

Warm blessings,
Spencer

trash talk said...

I'm probably too late...I always am...but I have to play 'cause that's how I roll. First thing I thought of was Hugh Heifer, but that's kinda a guy's name, right?
Several popped into my head like Milk'nhoney, Clara Bella, Buttermilk, Sage, Brie and Swiss Miss. Then I thought all fancy/schmancy Fille de Ferme, but the name that kept singing out was Sweet Beulah Land.
She's a charmer and definitely needs a unique name.
Debbie

Anna said...

Hope it's not too late but she is a Clementine for me :)
