I have a thing about scarecrows. I think they are really cool. I can't say I've seen one in action in person. Sure I've seen scarecrows at the craft stores this time of year but they certainly aren't scaring any crows or probably any other bird.
In fact if you want to scare, or at least annoy, birds then what you need is realistic looking fake bird. One year I bought myself one of those scarecrows from the craft store along with some metal yard decorations that looked like corn stalks. Then I also bought a big black fake crow to go with them.
The Fine Print: Large scarecrow stamp by unknown (it was a self-mount from my friend), designer papers by DCWV, and leaves from my fall stash.
