Talking Scarecrows?

"Don't be silly...scarecrows don't talk."
remember which movie that's from?

I am so happy to play with
Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
This is what I did on my rainy weather
birthday yesterday.

If you read my post yesterday, I mentioned Terry had several cornucopias tucked in her goody basket. That was all I needed to complete my Harvest Tower. Last year there was one at Market Days, so pretty, and I set about hunting for a variety of sizes. Hum...I need a stand...remnants of a floor lamp, the three lite fixtures long since removed...perfect. Just had to pull the weaving to make room for the pole.
1--2--3--4--5, thanks Terry for 4 & 5.
Then loaded them with fall fruit, pine cones, & foliage.
3 little scarecrows and if they could talk
they would tell you, "Dollar Store after
Thanksgiving sale last year...10c.
Green and red and...
blue, oh my! "Hello BLUE MONDAY folks!"

More birthday fun. I tried to edit my post yesterday to add this pillow but my computer wouldn't let me. Didn't it know it was my birthday! But I wasn't scared and didn't crow about it...the little yellow flowers will be quite nice for Mellow Yellow Monday over at the Drowsey Monkey.

From my Spring, Texas friend...Leonha, thanks!

My harvest tower went together so quickly that I wasn't scared to start on my next project. Having sold the last pillow wall hanging I 'bout another one! It isn't finished yet but since he has a BLUE hat and a little YELLOW bird on his shoulder, I just had to share today.
He looks rather scared that Ms. Birdie
has come to pluck
some straw to fluff her nest.

"I'm not afraid of her.
I'm not afraid of anything -
except a lighted match.


That's all folks...signing off from the land of OZ!

FIRST AND FOREMOST...HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANDY! Even it was yesterday. I wasn't sure. This is my birthday month too. Libras love everything pretty, balanced AND SWEET. At least I do.

Love, Love, Love, your very balanced tower of wonderful fall. A great project to undertake. Good job.

Have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Jeanne

Happy birthday blessings, Candy. Sorry I missed your special day ... off day here.

Your chubby little arms & legs are so cute ... don't we all have a little more 'junk in the trunk' than what we need ... excuse me, I'll take another piece of cake, please, Candy. Chuckle!

Love this fall creation ... it is wonderful. I'd never know how to do that but I sure like it.

Have a warm snuggly autumn eve. TTFN ~Marydon
