w is for wheeple




























that was me, letting out a bit of a wheeple when I saw the prices of this discounted fabric over at the fabric mill yesterday. just in case you don't know what a wheeple is, it means to whistle feebly. I actually whistle quite robustly but I had to figure out a way to incorporate the word wheeple into this post so I made that whole first part up, except for the discounted fabric, that was real.
if you'd like to add your own thoughts on the letter W, please do so by joining in over at abc wednesday, thanks to mrs. nesbitt & her helpers.

Oh, I've been wheepling a great deal these days, just didn't know what to call it!!! Thank you for adding to my vocabulary, Lily! I love it! Terrific post for the W day! Enjoy the rest of your week!

What a great word—and I love the convoluted way you managed to "work it into the conversation," as it were!

Wanda said...

Yeah, a new word to use! Thanks I really like the sound of it!!

Pietro said...

A nice new word, Lily! In fact I've looked on the dictionary but didn't find it!
Happy Wednesday :-)

So do you wheeple while you work? Nice rugs.

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, THANK YOU!

See here for more definitions of 'wheeple'! Have you ever played Balderdash? It's a 'weird-but-legitimate- word game, and I always seem to remember the definitions that are the wrong/funny ones, not the real one. So it shall be with 'wheeple'.

BTW, do you think anyone wheepled at my photo today? :)

Marlene said...

I do believe you have coined a new word. Great photo, this one would also make a great jigsaw puzzle.

One thing I dont do well is whistle, I believe its tied to my tone deafness ... however that is one fine assortment of remnants ...

I like this word a lot - the fabric looks luscious, too!

Beautiful fabric...the pink, green, white, yellow, reminds me of a rug. Create a masterpiece with cloth! Wheeple while you work.

LOL! I love the word "wheepling".

I remember there was a toy in the late 80's where they called the little people that went with the toy Wheeples. :-)

I love made up words. Wheeple is going into my list!

I love the point of view in this shot - for some reason the holes at the center of the rugs remind me of baby birds' open mouths waiting for their mother to feed them. Lovely photos - they get better by the day!
