The Scarecrow festival!

Today's post is a bit different from the usual fashion and beauty topics i write about i think i would put it in the lifestyle category and i have been thinking about adding a new lifestyle page to include things such as music, travel, books, and events. so keep checking back and let me know what you think when its up.
I didn't anticipate spending my Sunday afternoon walking round a little village called Overton with some friends looking at scarecrows but that's exactly what i did and i loved it! :) it took me back to being a child and reminded me of how children are impressed by the simplest things.
Every year the creative residents of Overton village enter the popular competition by creating their own life like scarecrows such as humpty dumpty and Bill and Ben the flower pot men. The impressive scarecrows fill the streets standing on pavements, perching on rooftops and peering out of shop windows.
All in all we had a random but very enjoyable day out in the cute little village of Overton. Then i came home to a roast dinner what better way to spend a Sunday?
here's some of the imaginative scarecrow creations.
I think they're great what do you think?

"there's no place like home"

This one's quite scary!

Dennis the Menace!
Star Wars!

"humpty dumpty sat on a wall"

Think i may of gone slightly over board with the amount of scarecrow photos i posted! I just couldn't resist its hard to pick a favourite they're all so good! hope you enjoyed them as much as we did!
