PH: Scarecrows and BAGS

It's the time of year for Summerville's Scarecrows on the Square. 
Below are pictures of the scarecrow doctor, scarecrow patient and the ever-present IV bag.



Saturday is always devoted to blogland's Photo Hunt.  Earlier this week, I posted photos of some of unique and creative scarecrows in the annual display in the center of Summerville's historic district.  I promised then to post more today, including some of my favorites.  

This week's Photo Hunt theme is "bags" and that certainly fits with scarecrows; bags, sacks and pillowcases are often used in making scarecrows.  Sometimes bags are filled with dry leaves, straw and other such things to plump up the figure. 

This display is one of my favorites.  It's sponsor is Small Wonders Imaging, a local ultrasound business.  The pregnant scarecrow is having an ultrasound performed.  There just might be a large bag in that outfit!





Here's another favorite, perhaps because I can identify with the woman who needs to get to a salon to have her roots colored.  Instead of hiding her head in a bag, she's putting her head - and roots - in the ground.



Great scarecrows to advertise a rehabilitation group, don't you think?





Happy Halloween!

Great scarecrows! That was quite the extravaganza. Love the way you tie it all in with the IV bag.

Wow, these are fantastic. What a fun and creative event and you came up with some perfect ones for the theme. I never would have though of an IV bag. Happy Halloween!

Wow, the creativity displayed here is astounding!

Yes, I have enjoyed a burlap sack race in days gone by, though I think they were actually feed bags.
