Mr. Scarecrow

Pin It Now!

This is a scarecrow that my dad made. I just love him! I think this weekend I'll buy a couple more pumpkins to put around him. I like to have some extra pumpkins to paint silver or gold after Thanksgiving and keep around through the Christmas Holiday.

Oh my what a great idea about painting the pumpkins silver or gold! I always feel bad when I have to get rid of the pumpkins for Christmas decorating. Painted pumpkins will look great on my little side porch...THANKS!! Your scarecrow is darling.
Best,

Hi,
First timer here...You know your September 27th blog with collage picture of autumn? Well, the middle pic is a "fairytale" pumpkin and I just bought two of them from an amish farm nearby! Never saw them in my life and now I own two and just saw them on your site. I'm still learning how to blog--hope you get this. Ann

Precious, darling, adorably cute scarecrow! I want one! Does he sell them? Cindy, I see where you get your creativity genes from. I am in awe of all the things your dad can make. No doubt staying busy keeps him young. God bless him (and your dear mom)!

Your dad is gifted at making all sorts of neat things, isn't he?! I have enjoyed seeing the pictures of his handiwork :) Thanks for sharing the idea of painting the pumpkins - guess I didn't really think about that to make them last a bit longer.

Have a great evening!
