Heritage Paper Preview - Elements - A Name?

I have completed some papers for the heritage kit...here is a preview of a few of them.

Now, I would like to know what kinds of elements you would like to see in the kit.
So, please post a comment with a small list of elements. I will have basics like brads, eyelets, staples, photo corners and turns, ribbons, bows, lace and pearls...so is there anything else that you think is needed...is there anything that shouldn't be in there?

A Name

I often have trouble with names. Sometimes, they just pop into my head, but most of the time I struggle to find a name that is unique but means something.
My latest freebie is a good example. Not many people know what the name Thetis is all about. I felt I had to explain it. I don't like to have a name that has people going...huh? But, since the papers were light and feminine in addition to the colors being like the ocean...I thought it fit.

Now it's your turn. Please help with the naming of the kit. If you need to see other posts, maybe these will help:

Love anything heritage! The name that came to mind 'Creme de la Creme'

Hmm Hemingway's Retreat came first to mind. If I think of something else I'll let you know. I would love an antique hand mirror, a hope chest, & a pair of granny reading glasses as elements if its possible. I'll come back if I think of more hehe

How about "Vintage Charm"?

I think a possible name would be Bisbee for the historic copper mining district in Arizona.

I'd like to see lace and swirls or brushes with these lovely papers, maybe more metal elements like hinges or keys, maybe a frame. What about faded flowers? Also like the glasses comment.

Looking Good!

These are really pretty! What about adding some tea-dyed lace (or just antque looking lace--thin); and what about "Parlor Room Elegance" or "Sunday Afternoon" to remind you of the days when everyone used to get dressed up and meet in the Parlor after church... I would use this for my Grandmother, it's just so elegant! Can't wait to see it completed! Oh yes, and what about a gold brooch (with the lady silhouette) I forgot the name of them... my mind drew a blank! I think that would look nice with this paper pack!

I like "sunset ____memories?"
"pepperberry______? spice"
"Sunday Social" (like the best)
"Circa 1929" or other year!

I like what Shell said about the elements - hope chest, antique hand mirror, reading glasses - and also maybe a pocket watch, postcard, chess board, tea set, coat rack, grandfather clock (feel like a kid writing to Santa!) and what Elise said regarding lace being "tea dyed" - love the papers - they are truly gorgeous - if you decide to "fade" them that could be in name -
