Little Red Truck

I found this cute little metal truck at Hobby Lobby back in September and had to have it, I'm glad it was 40% off! I knew right away what I would do with it, as I've seen a lot of trees on vehicles in Christmas decor.
I bought the plaid chargers at Michael's at 40% off too, and the red plates came from Dollar Tree, along with the greenery. I had the napkins and the placemats already.

I bought the red goblets last Christmas at Beall's Outlet.

The tablescape can together easily. I decided to stay rustic and not use a tablecloth.

I also kept the centerpiece simple with only the truck and the tree in the back.

I like the colors using the lime green instead of the traditional red and green.

Here's a place setting just for you!

I love my little red truck!

 I'm looking forward to using it in more tablescapes, it won't be packed away in the Christmas things!

I hope you enjoyed this tablescape.  Merry Christmas!!

NOTE:  I'm posting this late to Susan's Tablescape Thursday, I had it all ready to post Thursday morning, but ended up going to the hospital at 5 a.m. and just returned home tonight (Saturday.) I hope I'm not too late!


Scarecrow Collection

I painted this scarecrow to go with my scarecrow collection. It is 16x20
I displayed it on this easel until I put all my scarecrow collection in the breakfast nook, so I tucked this one in among the others:

Other scarecrows are tucked here and there 

Even hanging from the chandelier!

It is made of chenille, so cute! When I started collecting scarecrows I would only buy those that are a little out of the ordinary, like this one!

He has fallen down and can't get up!!

How different are these? Made from flower pots and a light bulb!

Even a scarecrow clock!

So which one is your favorite?

I display them differently each year, one year I tucked some into the CD stand:

One year they were all on top of the TV armoire in the family room:

Some on top of the antique clock:

Hanging from a lamp:

And this year in the breakfast nook:

After I painted the scarecrow, he joined the others:

 What should I name him?

Did you choose a favorite? This one may be my favorite:

But, I am growing very fond of my newest one:

 He needs a name!

I hope seeing the cute little scarecrows has cheered you up,
the last few days has been sad with the attack on Paris.
Pray for Paris, and pray for America's protection!
