Scarecrows,witches and cornhusk dolls

Over the years I have made many scarecrows, and witches. I thought I would share some with you. The scarecrows are displayed inside and on the porch.

All but one of the witches stay in the doll room on a shelf. Not enough room to display them with the scarecrows. The one is sitting on the rabbit she is wood.

The corn husk dolls I have collected and treasure. I have them displayed on the buffet this year.
I have made many and know the time and effort it takes to make a corn husk doll.
The small one to the left of the one with the apron was made by our oldest son when he was in middle school. He is now 45.

Last picture is of my favorite witch. She is an oil painted cloth doll and has been sold. Her name is Matilda Jolie, Tillie for short. She is made from my MJ pattern.
I am linking to Marty's table top Tuesday. http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/
The buffet counts?Right?
Stop over and see all the wonderful fall displays.

Have a great week j

Hello there. I found you via your comment on Henhouse. I so enjoyed her post on the prairie doll she created. I adore making dolls and dolls clothes; I guess it's the attention to detail which makes me happy.

It is really lovely to see your blog and to 'meet' another lover of dolls. I will be back to admire....

Greetings from France.

Your treasures are wonderful! I clicked to see them larger, and I have decided that the last one is my very favorite.

Joining from TTT, and I'm so glad I did.
