My new scarecrow

runningtrailsMay 23, 2009

Here she is:

I put one arm up and waving so she looks friendly (and also so she doesn't look like we hung her on a cross!)

I bought her at a garage sale this morning for $1.00!

That looks more like a "I'm so happy to see you" crow. Wouldn't scare my crows away. Great bargain, by the way.

I think I will cut off the cross piece so it doesn's show.
Well, she's not there to scare the people away. She may not keep the birds away either, but I like her anyway.

I certainly could not have made one for that price.

Great find. Like the pitchfork at the bottom too. You gonna hang some tin pans from her hand so she can make a rukus when the wind blows?

How adorable! And what a deal!!! Not very scary, tho. Maybe you could sew some jingle bells to her apron?

I would gladly trade you for the creepy longhorn skull my husband insisted upon hanging on my garden fence!

The tin pans and bells are a good idea. I've saved some tin pans to tie around the corn and sunflower garden to keep the groundhogs out. I don't have a lot of them, however. I may not have enough to spare for her but if it'll keep the birds away, I'll use them. I might need them for the tomatoes. Do groundhogs eat tomatoes?

I think I need to make a few scarecrows...

Occasionally. I should take a look over there more often. I LOVE garage sales too and like all kinds of whimsical (junk) things in the garden.
