The Scarecrow



Our church has a Christian school founded in the mid-seventies.
For the first time ever it was decided to hold an Autumn Fair.
I was asked if I would enter the scarecrow competition!
Never having made one before and not knowing where to start I said yes. 
The result seen above was awarded the winner 


My entry for an Autumn photograph came second
Taken in Epping Forest


and my entry for a 'garden on a plate' did not receive an award
'you win some, you lose some!'
If you missed my previous post I think it is worth taking a look

Congratulations, Barbara! For someone who has never made a scarecrow you did an excellent job. Well done! Does it keep the crows away?

Terri said...

You know, I like your garden best, all those little plants, and the rock work is fun.
Love your Autumn picture, too. So much color! (The trees look like they could jump up and run after you... scary like the ones in Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs.)
And your scare crow is so sweet. How could he scare anyone?!!

Is that your scarecrow? I think that your photo should have taken the 1st prize...

Well all three are winners to me, Barbara :) This is such a colorful time of year here. My little Grand girls played in a huge pile of leaves today. And on Saturday a blogging friend and I went out and about to get seasonal photos and had fun going home and creating posts from the photos we snapped.
I'm glad you are finding life so rewarding!

All entries are lovely! Congratulations! I just started working on a scarecrow frame for the grandchildren to "clothe" when they get home in December.
