OOOOOkra Ghost

Sherryl's Okra Ghost!  Isn't that cute?  And cute to stick in a plant during the fall. She usually draws the face.  And she adds that it's not waterproof.  So bring it in at night!

Saw a FUN post on facebook.  I shared with Gala and Sherryl and we just had us a little craft night at the Dewey and made some.  I experimented before that night to be sure the glue, etc would work.  These 2 girls are loaded with creativity, so they gave me some great ideas for my future owls!

Screech -- our owl
Gala's Trio - the one in the middle is named "Kitchen Sink"
Sherryl's trash owl

Texas Brown 

"Not a Hoot" -- Jerri went with a native American name

Tom and Dee named her hooter Pothead!  (because it's the lid to a pot) And it's a winker.
October 2013: Dee, Jerri, and Jackie got to pick out their own hooters while visiting in Branson

Joan's and Jean's Hooters

Justin and Doug got new hooters.  Asher named Justin's "BB"

12-5-13:  Below are some of my last batch of hooters for awhile.  Made these in Texarkana before the cold weather hit.  Fun craft and it's always nice sitting outside to create them.

Cliff is still working on a name for his hooter
1-20-14:  We decided to get together at Connie's rig on this beautiful, warm day to make hooters! We'd been hitting the resale shops to get supplies.  The girls made some wonderful hooters.  And since Cliff was very interested in our hooters, I made him one! Fun day!

September 2016:  Hooters are a hit in Spearfish!! We had a craft night at the volunteer village for the DC Booth.  The ladies had fun making and naming their Hooters!  I made one for Carlos.

South Dakota Hooters.  You betcha!

My bestie, Jerri Cooper, joined us. She & Marie supervised our hooter making

Mine is Dewitt ( as in Dewitt Clinton Booth), Jan's is Ollie, and April's is Herbert
Can't remember what Cheryl and Alice named theirs.
We were basically all talking at once.  LOL

so we took pix and sat down and made more!

I've learned Cheryl is our perfectionist -- she continued perfecting her first one

Ranger Carlos has a special place on his wall for Dewitt
