Show and Tell - Scarecrow Collection


Time for Kelli's Show and Tell. Go here for lots more fun!

Today I'm sharing my scarecrow collection. I started sharing them on Thursday, so you can see more on the following post. I have a lot of my scarecrow collection on top of the TV armoire, above.

This little scarecrow like to ride a bike!

The little scarecrow on the mini bale of hay is made from a block of wood!

The scarecrow, above, is made from a lightbulb! I found it at a craft show several years ago.

The scarecrows above, are made from flower pots!

These crafty scarecrows are displayed on our kitchen counter.

The little plush scarecrow is made out of velour.

I don't buy scarecrows unless they are different and unusual. I haven't bought any this year because I haven't seen any that are unique. I've been collecting scarecrows for about five years.


I love the scarecrows, and would keep them up year around, but that wouldn't be appropriate! Ha-ha!

The little scarecrow above is from the Puffkins collection (which was popular several years ago when Beanie Babies started, they aren't beanie babies) His name is "Patches."

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my scarecrow collections, and will go to the following post to see the rest of my collection. After you see all of them, tell me which ones are your favorite!

It's hard for me to choose a favorite, but the big one above is at the top of the list!

I also invite you to visit my new blog The Power of Prayer, just click on the button on the side bar.

Thank you for the big smile all your scarecrows brought this morning. A light bulb? Now that is clever! I love them all.

What a great Show & Tell. I love the little guy on the bike.

Constance said...

The scarecrow riding on the pumpkin from yesterday is my favorite! It's hard though because you have SO many and they all have a certain charm to them! I know what you mean about not getting them unless they're unique. I have aNutcracker collection for Christmas and I feel the same way!

Last week I shared about my Grandma's trunk, the "before restoration" photos. I got it back and I have posted its transformation on today's S&T.

Hi Katherine! I found you at Ceekay's blog and thought I would pop in to see you. You just look so sweet and nice in your little photo. Now look at those cute little scarecrows. You do have quite a collection. I'm going back to scroll through your blog. If you get a chance, come by and visit me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What a bunch of darling scarecrows. I only have two and I bought them this year. No, come to think of it, I made one a few years ago that I forgot about. It's in the guest room closet. I'd better go get him out of the closet and put him in the family room.
Hugs,
Charlotte

Your scarecrows are very cute. I love the flower pot and lightbulb guys. How creative. I can see why it's hard to choose a fave, they're all pretty special in their own ways.
Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your day!

Mrs. Miles said...

Are those CUTE or what? Why they "as Dorothy said in the Wizard of Oz" - why they would'nt scare anyone!

They are just DARLING!

Thank you for sharing, you're giving me great ideas.

Kathrine, can you tell me how you got your personal message in your comment box, I'd like to do this too!

Thank you for sharing, Barb

Glad my grandson's were not here, I would have never got to leave your post. They love it, I do too. It was fun seeing their excitement looking at your post. I love the one on the bike

Lady Katherine said...

Hi, they saw some, remember they called the blue pants one Humpity dumpity. They were so excited, when they saw my post of them today. Yes, come to tea, I would love it, My OLC is the oldest, but the tea pot in one is new, got it off ebay. there's a seller that keeps them. I plan to take it to hospital with me. I hope not soon, but got more tumors and go for MRI, next week, I have tests and tests lately. Oh well, I love my china, I am trying to get a three teir, serving piece, I think it is new. Since I do not get to go shopping, my husband takes me to doc and whatever, but I want to go to places I love. I have not drove in 3 years, but now I am wanting sometime out, thats wonderful with no medical attached.
