Gifts of White and a Bun



So you remember I don't do orange right? So you remember that I totally loooooooove white?
Well hello White Halloween!! Isn't this just so perfectly fabulous!!! I just had to have it. It was made by my very talented friend Carol Kujala of Esprit de Joie. She has beautiful things available on her site. The minute I saw this, I knew it would be mine!

Then... my friend Gaby, who is the sister of my friend, Lyd, gave me this gorgeous real pumpkin! It's so darn cool! Lyd and I are both crazy over whites and creams so Gaby got us both one. Luck us!!

Then my friend, Donna Lijegren from Byrnwood Needleworks, sent me this absolutely adorable bunny pincushion just for the heck of it!!! I loooooooove it! Donna is a big fan of the bunnies and said they inspired her to make this pincushion. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Oh how I just love presents!

I love ghost pumpkins, just so neat.
Kind of a pointless story, but one year i had a jack-o-lantern made out of one and when it turned i buried it. Ever since, about every other year, a new ghost pumpkin plant comes up in the same spot. I know they aren't supposed to, so i'm not sure how this is happening, but it's fun seeing. So yeah, ghost pumpkins make great jack-o-lanterns. ;)

Oh how sweet. I love the pumpkin. You should post on White Wednesday go to fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com. I think that is it.
I love the bunny pincushion I know Donna too through her blog how sweet. I love it. I only had a minute before starting to cook and had to come and see what the buns were doing! I love your bunny blog. You make my day. btw the dust bunnies were really funny. You should write children's books.
Say hello to sugs and razz. If I was closer I would bunny sit.
Have bunnyfull week.

Hi Shell:
I went into my server and couldn't find your message. Sorry...But I'm so glad you love your new pincushion!

Your blog is so joyful, I just had to send something special your way. And this seemed just perfect for you. Enjoy it in Bunnyville.

I'll be back to visit, and look forward to seeing you over at Brynwood, too!

xoxo to you, my new friend.
Donna

Hi Shell! Sorry I haven't stopped by in a while.. things are just a little crazy here. But I had a good time catching up with your blog today :)

Those white pumpkins are lovely! I didn't know pumpkins came in white, silly me lol!

Razzy's abundant love for Sugie seems very well contained now.. good boy! It's really nice to see them snuggling together :)

Lastly, I'm so sorry for your losses over the summer. I hope that the rest of the year will be wonderful for you, filled with lots of joy, happiness and of course, bunnies!

Hi Shell!

As I was reading your lovely post here (I like those white pumpkins, too), I wondered if you have seen the Old Painted Cottage for this month?

There, that is it if you haven't seen it. That gal did her home in all white w/black accents Halloween. I think you would just love it.
