People often ask me why or how I picked the name Hummingbird Home for our shop. When I envisioned having a storefront one day, I dreamt of a warm and welcoming place that people would enter and get a feeling of home. I wanted friends and strangers alike to feel like they could pull up a chair and share a story or a memory that was sparked by a vintage piece that we had in the store. Sure, I wanted a store filled with pretty things for your home, but it is the feeling of home that I was striving for. So, when it came time to name the store (which is a big commitment) I reflected on what gave me that “feeling” of home and I knew exactly what made me have that feeling as a little girl. My mother had a beautiful arbor outside of our bay window filled with the most beautiful wisteria vine that I had ever seen. Also, hanging from the arbor were hummingbird feeders that were filled daily with sweet nectar that would draw the hummingbirds in. I couldn’t wait to see my mom go out and feed the hummingbirds everyday and I was amazed at how they would flutter so close to her as she did it. I can still close my eyes and see her doing that and it makes me have that “feeling” of being home.
