I was tagged by Donna of Moonchild's Primitives to play this fun game of "How Did You Get Your Business Name"!!! How fun!! But....sorry to say.....I don't have much of an exciting story to share, but here is the story of how Crows in the Attic Primitives came to be named!!

I already had taken the business name Annabelle's Attic for my raggedies and such, supplies for doll making, etc. When I decided to begin selling my more primitive items, I thought....hmmmm.....I want something with Crows in the name. So I made a list, did an internet search to see what was already being used, and came up with two things that stuck with me....crows....and attic....and that's the story!! Pretty sad, huh??!?!!!!!

I wish it was more of an adventure....a fantasy....a really cool story....such as: Once upon a time, a very long time ago, when I was a little curious child, I came upon an old, broken down, abandoned house. I could not stay away. The house just tugged and pulled at my curiosity, until one day I gained the courage to venture in. I heard the soft call of the crow, and it seemed to be coming from the attic. Although the stairway was very decayed and unstable, something made me take the risk of venturing up the stairs to see what was going on with the crow up there. When I got to the top of the stairs, and saw the beam of sunlight shining in through the broken roof, there it was.....a HUGE nest of crows, with the elegant mother and father standing by to protect the young.......or something like that!!! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!! No such story!!!! Oh well!!

I now would like to pass this award on to my friends in blogland to share their stories of how they got their business name!! I award:

I loved your crow story. Sometimes I imagine some pretty amazing things when I'm making goodies. Like, I'm on a pirate ship and I'm creating charms out of priceless gems and diamonds, and the captain is playing his harpsichord next door. Keep up your great stories! ~Martha
