Our home is scary enough these days without adding a single cobweb or pumpkin. Fortunately I was able to get away for a few mental health days this past week and while I was gone they did get the drywall up. Look, I have walls!
It feels so strange to let this Halloween pass unacknowledged here at home but I have been able to get my decorating fix via my walks through Brucemore, this amazing estate in our neighborhood that was gifted to the National Trust for Historical Preservation. It is such a beautiful place to walk through. I like to think of it as Cedar Rapid's Central Park. :D
This month they featured a spectacular Scarecrow Invasion. While walking the grounds recently I took some photos with my iphone of some of my favorites. I thought it would be fun to share them with you, my readers.
I love that the creators of these delightful fall icons had such a fresh approach to an age old tradition. Each scarecrow is a work of art and a thrill to see.
Speaking of art, my favorite didn't win but it was an interpretation of Vincent VanGogh.
I loved his canvas and oversized ear.
