The Scarecrow Kids Are Back

One year while shopping, I came across a scarecrow kid carrying a welcome sign.

It was love at first sight. Into my shopping cart he went.

Wouldn't you know it, the kid wanted a sister. He got one.

Then, the duo wanted a brother.  They got one.

Then a second sister joined the family.

Oh boy, there's Honey Cat, waiting to go inside to eat her tuna! 

Every time I go out and come home again, my welcoming committee makes me smile. A lot.

The rest of the year, they hang out together in the attic.  They share one great big plastic storage bag!

So the front porch now has the kids, as I like to call them, a bright and cheery pumpkin-covered welcome mat, two chrysanthemums,  two pumpkins, a basket of fall flowers on the old chair, and an autumn welcome plaque. 

Who said something about being compulsive?  Who are they talking about, pray tell?

You have a whole family of scarecrow kids and they make a cute welcoming committee.

I want to come over and play with your cuties.

They are adorable and I can see how they make you smile! I used to make a scarecrow every year when the guys were smaller but kinda fell out of the habit. Buying pre-made ones would make it a whole lot easier!

Enjoy your day!

These are absolutely adorable! Now I want one - or two!! The only scarecrow we have is the one that adorns the wreath I will hang on the door in a couple of weeks. Signs of fall are not too visible around here as yet.

Have a great Tuesday, Susan!

No I don't but yours are so cute!

No scarecrow kids around here. Can't even think about Autumn with temperatures still above 100 degrees every day. Your welcoming committee sure is cute. Best wishes, Tammy

Hey that little mama scarecrow needs a little baby - then it will be a complete family.

I love your porch Susan - so very fall and wonderful.

My decorations for fall are done by my grandson and no scarecrows allowed - skeletons, spiders, webs, and so forth.


Imagine ir visitar uma pessoa e até que ela venha nos receber no portão você tenha a oportunidade de ser recepcionado por essas coisinhas lindas que o blog está mostrando? na verdade é um encanto ter esses modelos na varanda, na entrada da casa, em um jardim de inverno pessoal...
Parabens por tanta beleza.
Deixo beijinho de amizade, agradeço por tanta beleza simples mas que ao admirar é de um tamanho valor impossivel de definir.

Hi Everybody!

Sending out the welcome trumpets...tah tah tah tah tah tah...to Eunice Fernandes!

She is this blog's 323rd Follower.
Thank you, Eunice, for following.

I don't see a blog for her but I think the language Eunice wrote in is Portuguese!

Take care and hope each of you has had a really nice Tuesday. Susan

Nope no scarecrow kids. But I do have 2 child size trick or treaters that sit on my porch all October. And I just love them. Love your scarecrows! Kit
