~ the CROW Costume Contest... . .

with an October window to install...

in between the fall Tarts...

i chose a few crows to line up in the window
for a bit of drama...
painted on my favorite crepe paper for the backdrop...
done.
right~*
Well... .

of course, it started out
 quite innocently with a rather 'plain' crow...
and just thinking that they needed a little something
so the first one got a simple fabric twist adornment
and then the black & white papers
and the scissors
and the little pins
starting finding their way to the design table...

they had such a natural stance,
such grace,
such presence... .
( and such wisdom, that of course,
they would never tell.... )
~ with all of them
just milling about
in their little outfits...
i just had to give them numbers
for a bit of a costume parade of sorts
... and the costume contest was born.
~ so... .   .
 here now

off to hop into the window....
