Naming Things


I love to name things as you know.


the little house- a small house in our backyard

hauler 2- my Tahoe (not to be confused with Hauler 1)

the Nap Room- our front study that I re-did last fall

la brecha- our side yard.

And so in planning for spring,

I am going to christen more things that I love.


I will be re-working the limestone

patio area surrounding the little house.

It needs a suitable name.

This is a favorite piece back there.


This spring I will be using

cobalt blue and yellow to add more to this garden area.

These are all things I have on hand.



Except for the birdcage.

Once again, my husband waited patiently in the truck,

while I explored.


Have a great week-

I am on a vuelta ( a round) visiting daughters and grandsons.

Tonight when I asked my youngest grandson what he had for lunch at

pre-school today,

he said,


I think that calls for a new Ranch Recipe.


Linking to the following great parties.

Paula and Patti at Ivy and Elephants for What's It Wednesday

Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday

Alison at Stuff and Nonsense for Friday's Unfolded

Honey at 2805 for Potpourri Friday

Heather and Vanessa at At the Picket Fence for Inspiration Friday
Diann at The Thrifty Groove for Thrifty Things Friday
Debra at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday
Sherry at The Charm of Home for Home Sweet Home Friday

it's clear he likes naming things too!!

Patricia @ 9th and Denver said...

We often have 'basdetti' ourselves.

I'm told it's YUMMIE!

I must say the more I read your writing... the more I think I've found my sister I've never had...
I LOVE NAMING THINGS... and any kid I like-- gets a nick-name. That's just automatic.

I've often thought of name our home-- but now that we've lived here 16 years, it's kind of a moot point, don't you think? I just call it HOME.

-- love to read your posts, Pat

Beautiful colors for your re-do! Can't wait to see it all!

Enjoy your visits with the family! "Basdetti" sounds yummy to me:)


Nancy's Notes said...

Oh Laura, "Basdetti", that is just too cute! How fun to be traveling and making the rounds! Enjoy every minute. Love all of your fun names for your treasures! I've always been crazy about yellow and blue together, truly brilliant colors!


Bliss said...

How about naming it...... Blue Balls. That way in Winter you can chuckle at it.


trash talk said...

I give things around the house names too. Curiously, they all have the same first name...Dammit.
You must share your recipe for basdetti soon! Remember...yours...not the schoolhouse version...unless it's old school.

Deb said...

oh have fun with those grand babies...I love the way you name things...can't wait to see what you come up all that blue...I found a cool colbalt blue vase at a thrift store and I thought of you...

Babs said...

Don't you love the little names children give things? So sweet.
Love the cobalt blue and yellow choices for your garden, too.

Pondside said...

I love it! We still have spissgetti and gaspetti for supper regularly!

Diann said...

Love all the blue and yellow in your yard! Just beautiful! Thank you for joining TTF and have a wonderful week!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Love the colors. Thanks for sharing with us, and can't wait to see what's next!

White Lace and Promises said...

Love the birdhouse! I sold 5 this month at my shop. I guess we all are a little ready for Sprng. Looking forward to the rush at early morning Saturday yard sales. Yey!

Honey at 2805 said...

Yes, I name things too, and I love basdetti! Thanks for sharing at Potpourri Friday!

No gardening going on here. Just "white" everywhere! Fun stuff in your yard!
