Easing Into Fall

As you can see by these two last posts, I am in no hurry for fall, or Halloween. I have a bad habit of not getting interested in a holiday until about a week before. Kinda too late when you are a blogger. I still curse the stores when I go into them in August and Christmas is up already. So maybe after this post I might skip Halloween and get a head start on fall and Thanksgiving........ or not. .....

My table features mercury glass from Nell Hill's for the centerpiece. 

This tablescape matches the last post of the hutch, with colors of silver, white and green.

Scarecrows Unlimited

It's time for Postcards from Vee. I love Vee's once a month party in which you pick 4 photos previously used on your blog and turn them into postcards. Some entries are themed, some are just great photos, but it is always a fun party. 

My entry this month is from about two years ago. The old downtown merchants put on a Scarecrow contest each October. Retailers are encouraged to put a scarecrow pertaining to their business along the old downtown main street. I took these early on a crisp Sunday morning. 

Edward Scissorhands scarecrow is perfect for the hair salon!

City Hall's entry was a little poke at themselves, as those orange barrels are always a bane to our existence. 

The second hand shop that carries high end  clothes, decor, etc. called Encore, put up this ladylike scarecrow for their entry. 

I love this one. There is a wonderful doll shop in the old downtown, with a full line "doll hospital" for repair and restoration. You can see the doll "ambulance" in the background. 

You can see the post in its entirety here, with more scarecrows. 

I am joining Vee for her note card party.
