Where Did You Get That Name?

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

No one has asked me yet, but I am going to toot my own 'clever' horn for a second. I am a huge Disney fan. Being a nanny, I get to watch the classics all the time. I was watching Peter Pan about a year ago and the scene where Wendy and Peter trade a thimble instead of a kiss struck me as extremely cute. I kept sitting on this idea and when I toyed with the thought of starting an Etsy store I knew this had to be my store name. It just went so well with my love of sewing and had the romantic/ whimsy element that I so love. Here is a quote from the book.

"I think it's perfectly sweet of you," she declared, "and I'll get up again," and she sat with him on the side of the bed. She also said she would give him a kiss if he liked, but Peter did not know what she meant, and he held out his hand expectantly.

"Surely you know what a kiss is?" she asked, aghast.

"I shall know when you give it to me," he replied stiffly, and not to hurt his feeling she gave him a thimble.

"Now," said he, "shall I give you a kiss?" and she replied with a slight primness, "If you please." She made herself rather cheap by inclining her face toward him, but he merely dropped an acorn button into her hand, so she slowly returned her face to where it had been before, and said nicely that she would wear his kiss on the chain around her neck. It was lucky that she did put it on that chain, for it was afterwards to save her life.
