The Winner Is...! {And Apron #2 Revealed}

MEET OLIVIA!

Pamster was the first one to suggest the name Olivia, but there were many others who also voted for it.  (Pamster: E-mail me at carrie@scarletthreads.org for your 50 percent off coupon code!)
 
I didn't pick the winner... I printed them all off on a list and enlisted my friends to choose their favorite.  Olivia won by several votes!  And, more than one person suggested that it reminds them of a certain little gal here at our foster home whose name was Olivia.  That seemed like another excellent reason.  :)  It seems a fitting name for this joyful explosion of springtime. 

And, here is round-two of the apron-naming contest.  (Click on the photo to see it larger.)  She's vintage and girly.  Sunny and happy.  Perfect for making your eggs sunny-side-up.  Whatever should we call her?  Leave a comment with your choice.  (Oh, and suggesting a name you previously suggested is perfectly fine... we LOVED so many of your submissions.)

Fine Print: Contest closes on Wednesday, March 31. Winner will be announced Thursday, April 1. If more than one person suggests the same name, the person who suggested the name first will win. You can also enter the contest on our facebook fan page!

  1. Wow! This one is beautiful too! I'm going to vote for "Summer" It reminds me of the apron that'd be worn in a big midwest farmhouse kitchen, while making lemonade to serve to guests on a long and lazy front porch. Oh, she's definitely, a "Summer."

    Olivia, my daughter (not of blogging age) would like to cast a vote for "Vicki."

  4. Because it does have that 'vintage' appeal, I am going to name it after my grandmothers...so my votes are: Evelyn or Millie (short for Mildred)

    I also like the name: Alice, as it reminds me an apron from a Diner style restaurant, so the ol' show "Mel's Diner" comes to mind.

  8. I am going to suggest my Great-Grandmother's name ... it is so summery and happy. She died when my Grandfather and his brother were so very young (about 4 and 7, I think.) So in honor of her I suggest "Daisy."
