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.

How creative! Love the last for the doll hospital...Grandmother doesn't look too scary, though, she just looks cheerful and loving. Great theme!
