Build a Scarecrow Day

Posted by Brittany

I spent the better part of the day at a wonderful reunion with friends I hadn’t seen in a decade, so it was already dark by the time we finished making Baby Scarecrow Neigh. We didn’t feel right about putting the baby out in the dark garden, especially without a little babydoll stroller or bassinet, and something about crucifying a baby scarecrow like it’s traditional full-scale counterpart just seemed wrong. Chris suggested stuffing the baby with timothy hay and then letting the chinchillas eat it, but that seemed even worse. For now, I think the baby will have to sleep inside with us tonight. And honestly, I don’t really mind — it is pretty adorable.

If a scarecrow baby isn’t redneck enough, tomorrow we’ll be getting in touch with our country roots — It’s National Country Music Day!
