Let me just put myself out there again and tell you that naming my pets is quite an involved process. I am slightly over-the-top in this respect. Rather than just listing names I like, I create an entire persona for my pets, and then select a name that fits.
Now, stay with me here, and don't be afraid. Yet. For poodles, which is what we have, most people think of France. So, we created a back-story of a young, sophisticated French chef in training, who spends his time in the outdoor cafes of Paris sipping fine wines and wooing young female poodles while wearing a jaunty beret. We settled on a French name of Gusteau (from Ratatouille) and since I love to cook, my Parisian poodle is my littlest sous chef.
How appropriate then that I headed over to one of my favorite home improvement/decor blogs, Young House Love, and saw a giveaway for these charming French inspired tea towels from To Dry For:
I think Gusti would approve! The pattern is just too cute and so much fun! I love these towels! I had never heard of this company until today, but they have tons of other cute styles and patterns that would add so much fun to any kitchen. I'm hooked!
And, just for kicks, since it's been quite awhile since I shared the first pictures of our sophisticated gentleman, here he is all grown up:
