"Name that Tile" Random Winner selected!

The Tile Name Debate!

I wanted another pendant size that was tall but still had a delicate feel to it…and these 2 1/2 x 1/2" Tiles definitely fit the bill.  I initially called them "Skinny Ovals" (and Elongated like my Heart Tiles) - as did a few of my customers during a recent call to help with a "Name that Tile" post on Facebook :)

Of course once I printed out the tiny papers, adhered them to the Tiles with my Florentine style of decoupage, wood burned the sides and created the bevel edges - all I could see were Mini Surfboards lol!  And I wasn't alone!!

So - wondering what some of the Name suggestions were?  
Well, aside from Skinny Oval and Surfboard we had…

Marquise, Navette, Surfette, 
Tongue Depressor, Pipe Boards,
Skimmers, Paddle Boards, Petals, 
Cats Eyes, Elongated Ovals, 
Neckboards, Fingerboards, 
Wafers, and Kayaks!

My husband said that they reminded him of the Overhead Fan Blades…
and wants to name them "Blade Tiles"

THANK YOU everyone for the fun suggestions and to those that participated :)
I'm positive that I will be using the word "Surfboard" and a few others like Marquise, Navette, Elongated Oval, Petals, in the descriptions (dependent on what prints/themes I'm using)...

The actual name of the Tile Shape will be revealed in the Etsy Store on Thursday when our FIRECRACKER Sale & Online Specials begin!
