Riding into town today, the local Rotary Club had just put the finishing touches on this holiday display on an empty lot right near the town center. The colors drew my eye, I've always loved striped stockings, but when I got up close I realized that most of the clothes are brand new. There are hastily sewn-on patches, but the scarves, yellow overalls and the rest of the clothes are brand new from the local boutiques I s'pose. Goddess forbid we have dressed-down scarecrows in our dressed-to-the-nines town!
U P D A T E : Apparently there is a contest in town, as many local businesses have done their best to create interesting and creative displays. The proceeds from the entry fees go to a local breast cancer charity in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many of the displays feature a pink ribbon for that reason.
