On My Mind: 7-16-17

Gus, Theo, and Ruby - At work I recently heard of a sibset consisting of eldest brother Gus, and then Theo, and a little sister named Ruby. It's so unusual (especially in my small southern town) to hear such stylish names that I was pretty floored when I heard it.

Augustine - Another name sighting from work - a little boy was calling for his friend all across the arcade - his name was Augustine.

Libuše - I've really been into Czech names here lately, and this one is one of my favorites. It comes from the Czech lib - which means "love". In legend, Libuše, also sometimes calledLubuše, Libussa, or Lubossa, was the name of a Princess and the founder of Prague.

For the Shabby Aristocrat Family

Vintage Girl's Shoes by TheAquaNest on of Etsy

For the family that has a mansion by a lake where they spend their summers, but prefers their apartment in Paris. For the family that takes their children to art galleries, and then out to eat pastries and buy flowers. For the family that prefers grandmother's pearls to a new pair of shoes. They have a party for every holiday, apple bobbing and hide-n-seek for Halloween, followed by chocolate cake and the original "The Wolfman". For Christmas, they decorate the whole house, and have a great feast, each person getting one small but lavish gift. They are the shabby aristocrats, rich but eccentric, unable to fit into the molds of the past or the present.
