Mignon: It's French for Cute





Ta-da!  My Etsy shop is open for business!  Notice the new link to the right?  I was going to wait until I had a few more items and I also wanted to have a cool shop banner, but I figured I'll just jump in and worry about the other stuff later.  Something vs. nothing right?  Right.  

Here's the low-down...I decided to call my shop Mignon.  This name has multiple meanings for me...first, it's my middle name.  Yes, like Filet Mignon  (mmmmmmm...steak).  Also Mignon means "cute" in French. When I was in grade school our family moved to a new city and my mom asked me if I wanted to go by my middle name, since it's different and sassy and my first name is rather plain.  I said yes so at school I became Mignon.  The problem was that I forgot when I introduced myself in church and thus I was being called by my first name at church.  This became problematic and confusing so I just decided to go back to my boring first name...but secretly I've always wanted to go by my middle name.  I actually took French in high school and used Mignon as my French name.  In college I had a friend (coughcoughboyfriendcough) who decided to call me by my middle name, which then got shortened to Miggy and Migs, which is where I get my blog handle from.  So as you can see Mignon and I have quite a bit of history and it's the perfect name for my shop since I plan on selling cute things.  (Maybe even cute French things.)

As of right now the shop just has a few bags.  I plan on adding a couple more tote bags and another play tent is in the works, so check back soon and tell all your friends!

  10. In today's times every person wants to have rolex datejust watches
    which is specially fabricated for them. Women are extremely possessive when it comes to their fashion replica catier jewellery online and obviously they donot like to disclose their fashion statement to any other women. In a race to have exclusive things, the demand of designer waterproof jackets has considerably gone up over the past few years. Designer discount gucci handbags allow you to liberate yourself from someone else's choice and select exclusive things not to be found cheap chanel shopping anywhere else.
