Which of these two fonts would work better for my logo?

(Yes, I realize the kerning is screwed up... Micrographix is NOT my first choice for a program with which to create original graphics.)

The second one makes me think of crafts and being crafty. The first one makes me think of witches and tarot cards. I don't know why.

I changed my mind. This makes just as little sense, but it makes me think of Runes. Which I can connect in my weird little way with spindles. But the first one makes me think of fiber.

I'm not much help :) My mind is crazy

Well, the logo I have in mind is a briar patch with a hobbit door in the middle, if that helps.

I think the first one goes well with hobbits. I change my vote.

The first one is easily readable at a glance.

Personally I like the first one. Mainly because the curves of the letters and the decorative dots remind me of the Book of Kells.

I think the first one works the best. It's more readible, especially if you have to make it smaller, where the letters run together in the second font. Also, it connotes the fantasy element that you're aiming for.

Cool, thanks. (The letters running together would be the fucked-up kerning I mentioned. In a proper graphics program, like Photoshop, I could adjust that.)

I actually prefer the top one, but it's very Tolkein-y, so I voted for the other as I suspect Tolkein is not necessarily the way you want to go...

Actually, it is, sorta. The logo will be a briar bush with a hobbit door in the middle (when my beloved gets around to drawing it for me). I didn't want to go with too formal of a calligraphy font, because it doesn't go with my attitude or the name of the business. Thanks!
