Witch & Stars for My Gardens

jeannespinesSeptember 25, 2010

Here's a witch I made some yrs back out of an "old barnwood"...broken off at the bottom, add a strip of wood across for a hat. some rafia for hair, abracadabra! ... this yr I "re-vibed" her a bit by adding a crow to the brim of her hat (thanks to a suggestion by a forum friend):

And here she is stuck in garden vignette by garage door ...with an old iron wheel & a couple gourds from the garden...will add pumpkin later:

Also, I added on to my "blue bottle fence" link (& that link got very long!)...thanks, luna, for commenting...here's a couple more pics in case you missed the lazer stars I added... DH opened his tackle box & used spinners & fishing line. The stars are metal & then torched blue by the seller...got them on a trip this Spring & think they are so cool.

Here you can see all 3 ... sunshining in these pics:

And, here's the whole area...I'll keep adding...yesterday pic when it drizzled:

Fall is here! Jeanne S.

I don't remember seeing that witch before, she sure is darling. I think even I might be able to paint her. The crow is her perfect pet. They look very sneaky peering out from that wheel. Too cute.

Your witch would be kind of scary if her eyes glowed. lol! I was thinking maybe they did in that first pic. I agree, the addition of the crow was a great idea. Love your spinner stars! I bet they look even better in the sunlight while spinning in the breeze!

Those stars are wonderful, Jeanne! And Mz Witch is very cute, especially now she has a crow buddy to keep her company.

hugs, Karen
