Winifred & Maud

My current infatuations on the girls side. I adore Maud and have for a while. She’s not so much an infatuation as a long term crush. I love her but don’t know how workable she is with the existing kids. Winfred’s a bit less long term. I’ve admired her for years but only recently have been brave enough to actually put her on the list.

I’ve been thinking of combos for Winifred and have pretty much decided on Winfred Esme as a first two. Esme for me honors Great Auntie Esmeralda, whose name I love but find a bit unwieldy with the scottish Mac- surname. So, my options are:
Winifred Esme Ruby
Winifred Esme Frances
and
Winifred Esme Valentine

 

 Maud has her combo, Maud India Scarlett. I absolutely love it. She sounds so lush.

I also had the rather Victorian/gothy Maud Coralie Alice for a while but much prefer Maud India Scarlett.

What do you think of Winifred & Maud? Their combos?  Winifred’s my #4, Maud’s my #3 right now.  Am I crazy for thinking of these two?  Tell me! 😀 

 

As always, Thanks for stopping by and speaking out!

The Shakespeare Game

Thought I’d post this since it comes up so often when I mention Shakespearean names.

When I was little, my Grandmother and her sister May used to hate doing the dishes, so their mom came up with this to get them to work it out equitably and to get them to read (as well as do a chore!). Whomever is washing gets to quiz; quote a line of Shakespeare and the dryer has to guess where it’s from, bonus points if they can tell who said it and extra bonus points for act and line. It makes us re-read our Shakespeare quite often and keeps us laughing while we do the dishes. A weird but fun game from our family, to anyone who wants to start doing it themselves.
