Scarecrow Festival

Some friends and I went to the 32nd Annual Scarecrow Festival in Peddlers Village this weekend and after, my friend Kim from Chaddsford Winery's Tasting Room asked me an interesting question. "Which scarecrow did you like the best?"
Here I will admit  that I go for the scary stuff.
Folks could have poured their heart and soul into scarecrow mermaids, scarecrow princesses, and fair maidens, but I am attracted to the creepy ones. I was never a Cowgirl, Cartoon character, or Fairy Princess for Halloween - I was the girl with lots of fake blood and maybe a plastic knife through my head. What about you? Do you go pretty or scary? Or pretty scary?

*** Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! This was my absolute favorite Scarecrow! ***

Shoulda seen what was on his menu!

Can you really imagine 4 and 20 Blackbirds baked in a pie?

 This took me a minute. "Bucks Count E."

 Get it? Bucks Counting "E's?"

Kyle had NO idea who Frankenberry, Booberry, and Count Chocula were. Do you?

 "Every time I get married, I get my invitations from The Paper Chase."

 Loved this lady! Reminded me of something from "O" by Cirque DuSoleil.

 "Soul Surfer Scarecrow." Since this was done in good taste, I liked it too.

Baked Blackbirds, anyone?

A little humor goes a long way!

Halloween at my house.
