Details

The legend goes something like this: In the 1500’s in Old Mexico, a young girl wished to honor the Christ child but was too poor to bring a gift to the celebration of His birth. She was inspired by an angel to gather roadside plants for a bouquet; she did so, and the weeds miraculously sprouted crimson blossoms in response to her faith and obedience.

We don’t usually think of poinsettia as roadside weeds, but the showy cultivated potted plants with which we love to decorate have indeed descended from a shrub that can reach 16’ in height in the wilds of Mexico. The Aztecs used it for red dye and medicine. Named for the first U.S. minister to Mexico, it is also called “Noche Buena” (Christmas Eve) and “Crown of the Andes”.

This hand-painted image on 20” square indoor-outdoor pillow lends a festive touch but never requires watering or repotting. And for all of us brown thumbs, it banishes the guilt (oh, the guilt!) that accompanies the inevitable demise of our holiday potted plants. The pillow is stuffed with a removable fiberfill insert which may be machine-washed; cover may be spot cleaned, hosed off, or gently washed cool and air dried.

Did you know that the things that we view as petals are actually leaves, and that the real flowers are those knobby yellow deelybobbers in the center? The bracts can be cream, white, green, pink, orange, red or marbled. Contrary to popular belief, poinsettias are not toxic to people, but might cause some rather unpleasant gastic reactions. There are over a hundred varieties of cultivated poinsettia, but in this shop you will find two: One in classic reds, and the other in retro pinks.

These design looks great with other classic Christmas motifs from this shop (see last photo). Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed like a Christmas turkey, signed and copyrighted on a small island in Washington State. Thank you for looking, and Happy Holidays!

The pillow is nice, unfortunately it arrived too late to give as the gift it was intended to be. Ordered it July 13. I emailed to check on it's delivery date on July 24. No response from vendor. It arrived one hour after we left town on July 28. Had we received the tracking information (which arrived via email on AUGUST 15th!) we would have waited for it. Very disappointed with the lack of communication by the vendor.

Shipping

Shipping from United States
Processing time
Please contact me to find out when this item will be ready to ship
Most orders are shipped by USPS Priority Mail with Tracking, which generally takes two or three days' transit time within the U.S. If you need to have an order shipped to more than one address, please order separately for each address. You will receive a shipping notification with tracking number.

Orders outside North American are shipped WITHOUT PILLOW INSERTS to save on the high cost of shipping and the likelihood of inspection delays at destination. Please convo the artist if you have questions regarding this option. I do not ship to Spain; all previous attempts have been futile.

Customers are responsible for any customs, tariffs, taxes or inspection fees levied by their local or federal agencies. Crabby Chris has no control over the amount of time a parcel may be in the hands of customs agents of any country.

Payments

Secure options
  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Plastic, PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout are welcome. Please remit no later than five business days after the purchase. I also accept USPS money order, cashier's check or personal check, cash and dark chocolate. Payment by check does slow things down a bit due to the time required for the transaction to clear. Washington State residents get to donate sales tax, so that is automatically collected.

Returns & exchanges

If there is ever a problem, talk to The Crab and we will work out an agreement that is to your satisfaction. In the event a return for refund is requested, Crabby Chris must receive such request in writing within THREE DAYS of receipt of order; and customer must return the product within FOURTEEN DAYS of delivery. CUSTOMERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR RETURN SHIPPING COSTS. In no instance will a refund exceed the amount of the original transaction.

Additional policies

I am pleased to do special orders that are reasonably within the realm of what I ordinarily produce; such things as a simple color change usually involve no additional charge. Other adjustments such as a custom size, shape or motif are usually very do-able; drop me a line and we can discuss.

NOTE: If requesting design changes or a custom colorway, please be advised that CUSTOM WORK IS NOT RETURNABLE as it is not marketable to other customers.

Please feel free to inquire through Etsy convos as to whether your order can be customized to your specifications.
