Triple Cs

Dawn from Sweet as Cinnamon has asked us to tell all about the meaning of our blog name and I thought it would be fun to join in.  My full blog name is Caribou Crossing Chronicles of Quilts, the Weather and other Fun Stuff. 

I knew I wanted to blog about quilting and sewing but also about other things in my life, including the beautiful place where I live.  I knew that my blog name would be somewhat formal; I didn’t want a “cute” name, cause I’m not a cute type of person.

The town where I live used to be called Caribou Crossing, because the caribou crossed at the short river that runs through town and connects two very large lakes.  Some of us are nostalgic for that old name. 

So you see it is very simple …. the triple Cs it had to be.

  17. It's fun reading about how your blog name was chosen. What an awesome caribou sculpture too!
    Thank you for stopping by my post and for your kind words of the art that I do. How neat would that be if that train did pass through where you lived. I had posted about the story of how that particular image was picked for a gift from a customer to her father. Dont know if you read it, short version: she wanted a steam engine, google wasn't around at the time, so trip to the library and that steam engine was in a photo in a book...her elderly father had long since retired from the railroad...well...that was the same exact steam engine that he started working on back when he was a very young man!

    Blessings & Aloha!
    I goofed up on my link, so after re-posting another, Dawn so sweetly added me back to the list. But I kept the original post up so that I wouldnt lose the wonderful comments, like yours. Thank you for visiting! And wow! I admire the many blogs that you have! (When I came to say thankyou, I wasnt sure at first which one to reply my thanks too :o) But I'm glad I found your post and so nice to meet you. :o)
