Downsize Abbey

Dear Clever Readers,

May I enlist your help with a creative challenge? DH and I are in the process of moving into our newly built, smaller home and it needs a name — something amusing that seems “fancy” and looks nice on cocktail napkins.

The house name should sound grand (because it  isn’t) with an element of tongue-in-cheek whimsy, along the lines of “Fawlty Towers.” Currently, the front runner is “Tiddly Manor.” FYI, the building style is Arts & Crafts, it has a tiny yard, and it’s more urban than rural or suburban.

Any ideas? You’ll win my undying gratitude plus a small prize, and of course your cleverness will be duly recognized in these pages. Thanks, and love, Alisa home-sweet-home-3104968_640

    I’m awful at coming up with house names. *Blushes* It sounds cute, though. Love the Arts and Crafts style! Congrats on your new home. If I knew you IRL, I bring you a houseplant, or a plantable plant. 🌱 💐

        No, you were perfectly clear! And I knew that… it’s more a question of whether anyone in the US would get the joke. We named our summer house “Littleview Cottage” because it has a “little” ocean view and is quite small. I’m not sure anyone else finds this as amusing as we do 🙂
