Decorating for Fall, Part One

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

Last weekend, I went to our local Farmer's Market to try to find the biggest mum they had - this one is a monster-mum! We even had trouble getting it in the car to take home!!


It was mostly blooms when I got it, but it's flowering out now - the colors are so pretty!


This is Mr. Scarecrow Man (I know, I just don't have a better name for him and "Mr. Scarecrow Man" is what Av and I always call him!). The first year that Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion was published, they had something like this in the magazine, and I went out and painted a face onto a terracotta pot, then made a hay body and a mum for his hair. I am SO not a painter, but the shapes are really easy:

We put him on the front porch every year. BTW, that gourd is supposed to be him playing the banjo!
