Harvest Decorations on Thanksgiving Eve

So I need to make my blog post on Thanksgiving Eve and here I sit, with not much to say.  Then again, since I have the rest of the week off, it is like my Friday, so I will feel free to post lame, as it were.  Maybe I can pep things up with a few pictures, monster or otherwise.

Aren’t they cute?

Here are a few decorations for a pre-Thanksgiving post.  Full disclosure:  Steven and I did not decorate our house for the holiday.  After we missed decorating for Halloween, it was all downhill.  Will we improve matters for Christmas?  Perhaps.  Only time will tell.  Time certainly is a blabbermouth. My witty sister, Diane, once pointed out, “Time is relative.  Not our relative.”

But I digress.

These are decorations with a backstory.

Here are some of my favorite harvest decorations.  I think we got the bigger scarecrows at the Aubuchon that used to be in Herkimer and possibly Michael’s.  The little one Steven won in a claw machine.  The bigger two are sweethearts, and the little one is the boy scarecrow’s little brother.  The girl scarecrow thinks the little brother is cute, so she is happy to see him.  Her boyfriend is less thrilled, because he wants to kiss.  Don’t you make up stories about your decorations?

Another big smile is always nice.

I just got this fellow last year.  I impulse purchased him at Hannaford when I was buying produce.  I think next year I am going to up my scarecrow game and make a few myself.  For one reason, I have a lot of clothes that are wearing out.  It will be a way to reduce, reuse, recycle.

In the meantime, this is my Lame Kinda Like Friday Post.  I hope you are all having a lovely Thanksgiving Eve.  Try not to burn your fingers baking pies.

 

Slacker Saturday, But Here’s a Scarecrow

I won his hedgehog buddy at a Christmas party for Ilion Little Theatre a few years ago.

Yesterday when I was purchasing some last minute things for our cast party after the final performance of LiFT Theatre Company’s production of The Tempest, I impulse bought a scarecrow.  There he was, in a group of friends or brothers, sitting on a display in the produce department.  It is my first decoration for this year’s harvest season.

So this is a late post on a Saturday, and it is going to be kind of lame.  Perhaps I should have sub-titled it, “And a Little Bit of Tim Curry,” because my husband Steven and I have begun the movie watching portion of the evening, and it has a Tim Curry theme.

I can’t get that smoky eyes look, but I have achieved the red lips.

 

Here is Tim Curry and a couple of friends from Rocky Horror Picture Show, a DVD Steven recently acquired.  I have never seen this movie in the theatre and only recall watching it once on video back in the early 1990’s.  I suppose it is quite the event movie.  I remember it being shown at midnight at the Roxy Theatre in Potsdam, NY, back in the day (you know, the “good old days” when we weren’t good, we weren’t old, and they weren’t days, they were nights).

We watched that one and Steven just put in Clue, another one I never saw in the theatre, but have enjoyed on video and now own on DVD.

It is quite the star-studded cast.

As you may have guessed, I did not do a whole hell of a lot to blog about today.  I don’t care.  I’ve shared a couple of picture and I am going to get back to enjoying my evening.  Happy Saturday, everyone.
