Edit:I'm going to extend this until August 5 -- when I get back -- I'm having such a hard time deciding on a name, and whatever I name myself will likely be changed by my cottage companions!! Right now I'm leaning towards Martha Lou, and Martha Mae Billy Rae. Having spilled those beans, I'll throw everyone's name into the hat -- I LOVE hearing your suggestions, they really brighten my day!
Every year I go to my best friend's family cottage, with her sister and her sister's good friend. We always have a theme. We've done Japan (we wore Kimonos) and Ancient Rome/Greece (togas) and this year is Southern Belle. Well, I'm making my corset, and chemise and pantaloon thingies (too hot for the full dresses -- plus we take the train for 4 hours -- and last year I took my sewing machine, so not much room in my suitcase).
But here's the dilemma -- My name. We have to have a Southern name -- here are some options:
or should I put something in front of my name?
I'll give a prize to the person who suggests the name that I decide to go with...... so, pick your favourite that is here, or come up with a better one. It has to have Martha attached to it somehow. Thanks a lot mom, for giving me such a boring name........
I'll pick a winner next week, say, on Friday July 11. I don't know what the prize will be, but it will be something that I made....
(oh, and a note to the pay it forward people -- you will be pleasantly surprised some day soon!)
