There are not too many fall festivals where I live... so dotting the landscape here are commercially bought items. Handcrafted and locally made is out of the question. So I make do with what is available.
When I decorate for autumn
I usually do it with Halloween,
not Thanksgiving in mind.
At Thanksgiving I'm into Christmas.
Witches, pumpkins,  Frankenstein's,
and skeletons are my favorites, this time of year.
 In years past I have not particularly
been fond of scarecrows.
But this year I'm giving them another look see.
They are actually kind of cute,
not intense like the characters I love.
Do you like scarecrows???

I like anything to do with autumn and Halloween, and yes - I like scarecrows. I have a couple of scarecrows out in one of my storage sheds but I doubt if I'd ever be able to find them.

All of your photos are cute.

I do like scarecrows. I don't decorate much for any holiday, but if I did fall decorations I would include a scarecrow or two. When we lived in Montana, one of the florists up there would make lots of scarecrows this time of year for people to buy, they were cute ones. Cute pictures you shared :)

Cute photos! Yep, I like scarecrows! I used to put one out with my mums, pumpkins, etc. for fall by my porch, but he lost a leg somehow and I haven't replaced him.

I don't decorate,but I love the people that do. I have a turkey my daughter made. She got tired of it and gave it to me.

Yes, I love scarecrows! Every year we go to a pumpkin farm, and they have a display of all different kinds of scarecrows. Jess and Nel would love to have you around at Halloween. They are always wanting to decorate, have parties, and dress up for Halloween.

Love this picture of you by the scarecrow!
