Who are Leo and Junie?

Someone recently asked me, who are Leo and Junie? Are they your kids' names or pets? No, to both! I love my kids' names and dogs' names, but they didn't sound good together. I guess I  originally was not too unique with my list of names for my new Etsy jewlery shop. Everytime I would come up with something clever, I would get knocked down, because it was taken already. There are a lot of good shop names out there.  I thought that naming my designs, Christine's jewelry designs was a little too plain and boring. I always liked stores that had names like Lisa Rinna's store in California, Belle Gray (google it) or Dave & Buster's (restaurants located all over the U.S.). Then a light bulb went off in my head (it does everyday, but if I don't write it down it disappears)! My closest lovies are born in August and are so true to their Leo sign. My beautiful daughter was born in June. I would call her my June-bug. One night I had a dream that I owned a little brick and mortar gift shop with handmade items. Leo and Junie was on the front window. There goes the light bulb! The birth of Leo and Junie arrived! I think they sound pretty good together. Don't you think?

  1. Love it! I am trying to think of a name for a new etsy shop now and it is sooo difficult. I hate that part. :)
