Whats in a name???

A big hello to all my old blog friends. It has been some time since I have sat and typed apart from check in on facebook but I have to say I'm back feeling refreshed and ready to share many things with you all. The past 10 months we have been busy building our new house which has had its ups and its downs to say the least. NEVER AGAIN! No more moves for us when we finally get in.

Anyway..I thought it was time for a house (one day soon) lifestyle (joined the gym) name (hmmm) but what??? Well our house first started off as a single story, then a single story with an attic but what about our views from the side? Wouldn't it nice to have one of those cute dormer windows to look out of? And that was that. Perfect idea for our house and perfect idea for my new name.

So with all that said, I would like to welcome you all to The Vintage Dormer!

Isn't it weird how we come up with our names?

How did you come up with yours?


  1. Hi Siobhan......I know what you mean about blogging....I'm not doing it as much anymore either and mostly just visiting my friends on Facebook too.

    I cannot WAIT to see your new home and what you do with the decor!!!


  2. Hi Siobhan,
    Congratulations on your new home...I will use the same words you said to me..."It will be well worth the effort when it's all done." :-) I can only imagine how lovely it's going to be when it's all done. Hope the rest of the process goes quickly and smoothly so that you will soon be enjoying your new home. Thank you so much for stopping by. I do hope you come and visit again. Have a wonderful new week.

    Your newest follower,

  3. Hi Siobhan,
