You've already met "Scare Me Happy!" Now we'd like you to meet "Scare Me Melancholy!" And, melancholy he certainly is. "Scare Me Melancholy!" is the oldest of the 3 "Scarecrow" brothers. Maybe that accounts for his being so melancholy! His younger brothers are "Scare Me Dazed!" and he's always in a fog and the other brother is "Scare Me Happy!" and he's always - well, too darn happy!
"Scare Me Melancholy!" was born with a an amazed look on his face and instead of crying when he was born he came out wondering why he was born. And, he has been wondering ever since. He'll hang for hours on end so pensive that none of the crows will visit him.
Now that's alright, because he's doing his job keeping the crows away. It's just that "Scare Me Melancholy" doesn't understand why the crows don't want to visit him. He might be pensive and might always be reflecting, but he's not gloomy. Scare Me Melancholy!" wishes his brothers could understand why he's so reflective. He loves his brothers and can be very thoughtful at times. He just loves to reminisce and talk about "the good ole" days - back when.......
"Scare Me Melancholy" is a 6" cloth scarecrow ornament. He has an embroidered and watercolor penciled muslin face, burlap hat, curly raffia hair, and his head is sitting atop a bale of straw. He has a rust printed fabric bow to adorn his neck and one to adorn his burlap hat. He has a ribbon hanger so he can be hung just about anywhere and makes a wonderful addition to any one's Fall decor.
