The Halloween Scene

The Munchkin and I have been working on a Halloween Scene for our front lawn. Every year we try to have a Scarecrow theme. One year it was a young scarecrow man proposing on one knee to a young scarecrow woman (we were celebrating my Sis's recent wedding), last year we had a scarecrow witch stirring a bubbling cauldren. This year, we've got a scarecrow Munchkin and a scarecrow Mum having a gourd snack on the lawn. I even used an old highchair as a prop. I am a big fan of the red long johns the Mum is wearing, even Maine scarecrows know better than to dress fancy without our long undies on the fall. ;-)
Surrounding the happy family is their Martha Stewart originated pet black Cats (all three of them):

These Kitties have been around for a couple of years now. Inspired by the look of the kitties, I drew some large rat templates and cut out their shape in some styrofoam. With some black paint, silver glitter, tinfoil eyes and clear enamel spray....I think they should be successful in aiding our Halloween Scene.

I hope you enjoyed our decorating. We had a blast putting it all together!!!
