stylin' scarecrows...

Last Sunday was the Scarecrows in the Garden event out at the UGA Experiement Gardens. You could enter a scarecrow in the contest two weeks prior. Charles and I created a scarecrow for Griffin Realty {my real estate co.}, and a few of the girls on the board at the Historical Society helped in creating that scarecrow. Last, Charles' office, Beck, Owen, & Murray, entered one.

This is "Miss Rela State" for Griffin Realty
I know, so creative... The name really was the hardest part.

Charles had the plan for building the structures out of pvc pipe. I used some clothes from my give a way pile in the basement, and voila!

Don't you think she looks just like a realtor! Notice the green sweater tied around her neck. My colors are green and gray. Charles was the hand specialist. He worked really hard on making those hands. They even have red nails and a ring made out of gum wrapper!
This is "Auntie Bellum" for the Griffin-Spalding Historical Society

I really thought she was the best. The dress is a $10 find at our local thrift store. I tried to negotiate the price down, but they don't negiotiate on formal wear...

It's hard to see, but she has a nice little black crow on her left shoulder. I think she is stylishy creepy!
"BOM" For Beck, Owen, & Murray
BOM won most likely to scare crows. I think they got that one right!

While none of our scarecrows won the overall vote, Miss Rela State did win "Most Representative of Your Company/Business"

And Sophie was there to get the ribbon!

Happy Halloween Everyone! We have an exciting Saturday planned, will fill you in soon!
