I can't remember where I first saw someone using vintage Scrabble letters. It might have been Judy over at Anybody Home http://judyh58.blogspot.com/. In any case, I now have become addicted to labeling items with the Scrabble letters or vintage blocks. I'm not sure what need it fills for me, but it somehow feels satisfying.
I have a confession to make about the crow. I don't think that was actually meant to be a crow. I got it at a garage sale. I think it may have been intended to be a dove, but it was painted a garish metallic gold. Thinking I could use it some day, I bought it.
This Halloween season, I saw a number of "blog girls" using crows in fall displays. Gotta love spray paint...and there you have it.
