Patio Scarecrow Arrangement

I'm still working on the kitchen and outside...they are coming along. I wanted to show you this scarecrow arrangement I spruced up last night. I bought the scarecrow at a booth in an antique/junk mall last year for around $10. He was in a basket with lots of old looking veggies and pumpkins. I fixed him up last year and put him on my front porch. Well, when I got him down from the attic last night he was a mess! I fixed him up again and set him on the back patio. Cute little guy isn't he?


Have a great Monday!

He is very cute. There are always repairs to the decors from year to year. Don't know how it happens, but it does!!

He is so cute. I just love scarecrows. Always have thought about doing a big one up for in the garden each summer. I think now I am retired and have the extra time next year there will be one guarding our veggies.

Love your scarecrow! We plan to put some outside soon. I just have to plan how to dress them.
