Heather – Namesake Inspiration

Heather Namesake Inspiration

Hey Tribe,

Today’s post is a little round up of all things HEATHER. I might have spent a huge amount of time on Wool Warehouse eyeing up yarn for dream projects, might have. And whilst browsing (read as: filling my shopping basket with all the yarn) I noticed that there is a lot of Heather named yarn bands in orbit. Like, a lot.

My namesake, Heather, is a sturdy little flower which covers the Scottish moors and is happiest in the rocky and uneven places. Heather symbolises independence and good fortune.

The Urban Dictionary defines Heather as:

“Fun, crazy, beautiful, witty, sarcastic, loving, kind, stupid funny, precious, good-catch, smart, kinda psychic, loves to be looney, loves chocolate way too much, eyes the color of the carribean, empathetic, a girl you can’t live without, once you’ve met her…you can’t get her out of your mind. Once you’ve kissed her, you’re hooked. When she falls in love with someone, she falls hard and deep and will stay by you forever…unless you do some dumb shit. She loves to laugh, play, and have fun. You don’t want to ever see or make her cry. True inner beauty, loves God, babies, and small animals. Hates spiders and roaches. Loves to cook and bake…a very good mother. Total package.
Wow..that girl has it all.. her name must be Heather
#beautiful#kissed#inner beauty#hooked#witty”
Anyone else love the meaning behind their name?

I am really liking all the purple/lilac/mauve tones. It’s a colour I can pull of with my complexion and I am seeing a lot of it on the highstreet too. And FYI did you know that the Pantone colour of the year is Ultra Violet, basically a hyped version of Heather.

That’s a pretty deep description of a colour.
