Ianthe (English translation: "purple or violet flower") was a name attributed to three figures in Greek mythology
We well I came up with the name Ianthe as I was lying on the sofa waiting to go into hospital the next day to have Hannah.
I was messing with names and thought I would never have a name for the baby if it was a girl.
Initially i thought I had made it up as the first part Ian is obviously her fathers name and The is an abbreviation for Theresa wich is where Tracy comes from.
But alas I can not take credit as I was trawling through a name book when I stumbled upon the name.
As well as flower it is the shortened version of Iolanthe queen of the fairies and the feminin of Ian . what more could we want . I wanted to give it as a first name but wa snot allowed.
This is Hannah and her Sister Liz
I had to include this picture of my Beautiful great Niece Mya who is wearing a lovely Lilac coloured sweater.
And yet another sweet photo of her
My final picture this week of some buttons that I was sorting and there amongst them all are two violet ones.
Spealing of buttons are you a button collector?
I find it fascinating to thing of the stories a button could tellif it could talk.
These buttons came from my Godmother.
Well as we near the end of summer school I will be taking a quick peak around the rest of the classes offerings hope you can join me. I know The Teacher Jenny will be thrilled .
