Scare crows in my Home Town

This year my home town had a scare crow contest. It was our towns 1st and I think everybody did a wonderful job. The kids and I just didn't have the time to make one this year. We have made scare crows the last 2 years in the near town near us with our small home school group. Our group even own those 2 years. Even though we didn't join this year I was glad our town done this. Here are just a few of the pictures I took today. I even made a video, but didn't have time to load it to you tube. Hopefully it will be loaded by tomorrow. I also wish I had more time to take better pictures.
Hope you enjoy!

This 1st picture is sitting in front of our Pontotoc Progress. (Where our local paper is made.)

This picture is on the side of our court house. The sign says, Every vote counts.

This place didn't have a scare crow, but it did have little pumpkins and I thought it was cute!

Ain't she just beautiful!

This little lady stands on the corner about a block from my house.

These 2 little fellows are just out side our electric company. Don't they look like they are working hard!

This little dude is at the other end of our court house. His sign says, 2 things for sure: Death & Taxes!

This lovely lady is outside one of our gift shops. Don't she look so pretty with her shopping cart?!?

This little lady looks real serious! She maybe trying to find her a deer.

This little dude is sitting in front of one of my favorite places; Java Johns Coffee Shop! He sure does look like he needs a cup of Joe! hehehe!

See that clown in front of Merle Norman? It may be a clue of what you may look like if you get a facial. LOL! Just playing!

Here is a better look at Miss Beautiful!
Hopefully I can get some more picture of the ones on the court square by Friday!

Wow! They are all so creative! I love, love, love the undertaker/funeral home scarecrow.

I love fall - harvest time is always so wonderful, so colorful, and so much fun! Thanks for sharing these pictures.

What a great idea. It gets the town decorated and in a nice spirit. I love it!

Those are some great scarecrows! I vote for the fern-headed lady. That is cool! The electric company would be my second choice.

Hey, I had to make a second comment 'cause your word verification says:

What a cool idea! I love miss beautiful, very creative hair do!

We visited a small town called Woolombi last year and they do something similar, every property had some huge scene set up out the front. I did not have my camera that day but hope to go there again. I did not realise they were scare crows though! Even the local church had a bridal party set up out the front! They were all very entertaining!

How fun! Hardly anyone in my neighborhood has any Halloween decorations so it was all the more fun to see yours. Thanks for sharing ;--)
