The Schwartz's vs Country Couture

Part of living in the sticks is decorating for fall, I think it's actually written into your mortgage contract.  On the way home I pass no less than a dozen well decorated hay stacks complete with scarecrows, pumpkins, and dried corn stalks.  Chris and I have talked about getting hay bales every year since we've moved out here.  We even bought some last year, but then gave them to a friend to use for seating at a party so we didn't decorate.  This year we were set to decorate.  Chris picked up the straw and I mod podged some chipboard letters with pretty fall scrapbook paper.

Consequently, did you know that mod podge is just fancy watered down Elmer's glue and is therefore NOT waterproof?  This information would have been handy before the first torrential downpour.  So our lovely fall decorations survived about a week.  And we never made time to go to the pumpkin patch so there aren't cute pumpkins on the bottom.  But we still have 2 more days until Halloween so perhaps we'll carve pumpkins tomorrow.  And the letters seem salvageable, so hopefully we'll cute and fallified before next weekend.

  1. That sucks that they are not waterproof. I thought that stuff was going to seal them so they would be fine in the rain.
