Witchee Wabbits and I Don't Do Orange

Witchee Wabbits are the tiniest of buns
that hide in the webs that the spiders have spun.

Singing songs and casting spells
they know they're safe cause they're hidden so well.

You see the Witchee Wabbits gather but once a year
to wish you well and bring Halloween cheer.



Ok I know I'm dorky, but I can't help myself. I just love how this pillow turned out. Can you tell it's wabbits wearing witch hats? David had issues and couldn't see it. I kept saying "your looking at their butts." Still, he was clueless. Of course, he could never see those hidden picture things either. Remember those? You had to relax your eyes and they would appear. I could get them every time. David.... never. He was convinced I making it up. Dorkwad.

I love my little pumpkin pillow too. If your interested in purchasing them, visit my site here.



I love Halloween, but I don't do orange. In fact, I hate orange. I know, I know, it's all the rage right now. Puke, gag, spit. It all stems from being a little kid in the 70's. My mom had these totally hideous, but at the time stylish, orange ashtrays. My dad was a chain smoker and those ugly ashtrays sat on the coffee table filled with stinky cigarettes. All that dark paneling, dark earthy colors (reminds me of must, mold and the need for depression medication) and that POP of orange in an icky ashtray. Hmmm, seems like history is repeating itself with colors as I watch HGTV lately. Can we say ORANGE everywhere! Will we see avacado green appliances soon? What about harvest gold? Again I say puke. With that said, my Halloween items tend to reflect the softer coral/peachy colors which are much closer to my beloved pink and the soft white, cream, fresh air, clean colors, that look nothing like icky orange ashtrays. My color trends tend to reflect cleanliness and breathing clearly. Not hacking on smoke, dust and mold. Yep, I totally don't do orange. Happy Halloween anyway.


Have a great week.
Hugs,
Shell


This week IGF fresh air, blue skys and fuzzy bunny butts (even if it means more vacumming)

Love those pillows Shell! And I don't do orange either. Back in the early 80's my ex-hubby had an apt. with shag green carpet and he went out and bought an ORANGE corderoy sofa!! OMG, it was hideous! We are obviously both scarred from those days! No wonder we like to decorate, we were forced to improve our surroundings!

Hi Shell,,, I love the pillows. I see the bunnies in the witch hats. I do like orange I have to admit. I love the fruit and I love the scent of anything orange. Now my horror color from the 70's was the olive green. I still hate that. LOL I hope you have a great week...pink hugs and love, peace, gail

LOL, That was so funny Shell. I too have noticed all those colors coming back in the mags & on tv shows & I think "what are they thinking?"
Love the new pretties!

Shell,

Opps, I can't see the bunny in witch hats. LoL. I don't really dig orange too, I must admit. Only for some clothes. I'm wearing orange top today.

I really love the pumpkin pillow. It's so adorable!

Have a great week ahead.

So Shell...you hate my orange hair??? LOL. I am not that fond of it either. I had orange shag carpet in one apartment I lived in during the 70's. yuck! Now those bunny buns are just too cute for sure.
Later, Inka

Patricia said...

I see them, and love their little pink tails, very clever. Can't say I'm very fond of orange either.

Love the pillows! Too cute. I'm not too fond of orange and brown either. Our whole house growing up was that color palate with a splash of pea green thrown in! AHHHH.
hugs,

Hi Shell,
Your pillow is adorable even though I didn't see the Witchee Wabbits at first! lol
I'm a product of Harvest Gold kitchen appliances and avocado carpet, and the most hideous gold/avocado/turquoise plaid living room furniture in the history of mankind! We never had any orange (thank you Tiki Gods!) but what I grew up with was enough to blind me for life. ;0]

Cottage Flair said...

You always crack me up with your posts!! I am with you .. hate orange, avocado green and harvest gold. Old is always new again but these designers need to skip a few trends!! Your two pillows are just beautiful and no, men never see beyond the obvious.
Jennifer
P.S. I just LOVE the shoe tag you sent me a while back. I look at it every day.

Hi Michelle,
Your bunnies are adorable....I'm a bunny girl, too....was born in the year of the rabbit (won't say which one, though) and have a lot of wabbits around. Your pillows are just as cute as can be. I don't really know too many (well, I don't know anyone who decorates in orange (ugh)except maybe an orange pumpkin or two.....but I even prefer the white pumpkins!! Your posts are always so much fun....thanks!!!
