On Thursday, my daughter and I decided to give our scarecrow, Georgia, a much needed and much deserved makeover. For several months, Georgia had been rocking a 70s short-sleeved denim jumper, macrame bag, and felt purple hat. But given the season and the fact that she was looking a little too shabby, we went shopping.
We ended up dressing her in a satin orange gown with a beaded neckline, a modified black stretch lace top to cover her awkward shoulders, a black tasseled velvet evening bag, and a black hat with assorted coordinating ribbons. And voilà:
As you can see, Georgia is now ready to make the rounds at all the krewe parties for Gasparilla and Mardi Gras - all along the Gulf Coast, from Tampa to Mobile to New Orleans. (Our black lab Ginny is thinking about joining her in the festivities.)
