Sometimes I do things a little backwards. Instead of defining 1st what I was doing with my blog, its theme, my motto. I pulled in some basics and let it evolve as I went. You don’t have to have it all figured out to start. Sometimes the best thing to do is jump in! So now that you know What makes a Quaintrelle I’m sure your wondering why pineapples??
There is a method to the pineapple madness. When thinking about a logo or how I wanted to represent my blog and myself one motif came to mind. Pineapples aren’t just a fruit that has a hard sharp exterior on the outside and sweet/tart on the inside. It is a symbol for warmth, welcome, friendship, and hospitality.
In the past to give a pineapple as a gift conveys your intention to promote friendliness and graciousness to the recipient. Before I started my blog I had been talking to my boss about what to buy someone as a wedding or housewarming gift.
She stated that when she moved into her house her neighbors brought by a cake but also a pineapple. Her neighbors explained to her that pineapples are seen as a welcoming motif. It is a symbol of luxury inspired by its historical rarity. In the olden days they were a rare luxury and to give one to a friend shows you value their friendship and them.
So welcome friend… here’s a pineapple! I value you and our friendship. As I go through this blogging journey and it becomes more I want you to know you have a pivotal part! So always tell me what you think! Any tips for my blog or things you want to see?? Put them in the comments!
