So we placed all my colors out on her dining room table and began to see what color outfit my scarecrow would wear and then we labored for too long over which color would be a nice compliment for the background. We finally settled on this lovely dark green that she had just finished dying a few days before. It didn't turn out to be exactly the color she needed, but I liked it so I was feeling pretty good. Oh yeah I was proud of myself. I planned ahead and I was TOTALLY prepared. All the way home I was grinning and thinking how smart I was......... Then I walked though the sunporch to the door that leads to the mud room - the planned destination for this little door hanging. And as I approached the door..............like a smack in the face............I looked at the GREEN DOOR. Arrrgh, how could I not think about the green door???? I walk through it a minimum of 10 times a day!!! IDIOT - so my planned green background would just meld into the friggin green door.
So now I guess I have to revert to Plan B. I cannot deal with this stupid scarecrow anymore. Now I'm trying to figure out a suitable substitution. I still want something to hang on that door.
Look at little Millie - even she is looking at me like I'm an idiot! Guess its true, you can't fool an animal!
