Eating Crow


Could you do it?



Could you eat a little crow?



Could you eat a little crow to save a friendship?



....it might be your best friend


.... it might be your spouse


... it might be your son or daughter



You could eat it slowly.



Or hash it over and over.



It's not hard to do.



I've had to do it a few times myself.



Don't think about the terrible taste it will leave in your mouth.



It will make you ever so humble.



Oh,  just swallow it quickly.


Then it will be over.

So cute Judy and so true. I've done it a few times but to be honest I'd rather do it that way than sit down to the table with the 'real thing', and they look very real to me. That looks very scary BUT so appropriate for the season..Happy Weekend..Judy

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

LOVE your tablescape, Judy- but then again, I always do!

Welre thinking alike - I just posted a black bird too, so neat.

I eat crow all the time, and stuff my foot in my mouth often.

Best I just keep quiet most times, haha.

Hugs.

AshTreeCottage said...

Yes, I have eaten crow more than once and have never regretted it. Your tablescape is terrific!

Hugs,

Clever! Don't we all have to eat crow every once in a while? The plates are gorgeous...with or without the ravens. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Monica @ Texas Fiesta Ware Fan said...

Your plates are perfect for Halloween. Yes I have eaten crow a number of times. Thanks for stopping by my place.

Beautiful tablescape. Kinda freaky, lol, but really cute. I really like those white pumpkins!...Christine

laurie said...

Judy, this tablescape is great! I love every element, and I love how you tied it in to eating crow. I've had to do that myself more than I'd like to admit. Great post! laurie

Hi Judy,

I just love your black/white Raven tablescape! Everything looks so inviting for Halloween. I also noticed the card you made. I picked up the same stamp at Michael's Crafts and have been creating with it. Thank you so much for stopping to visit me. I hope your week is off to a great start.

Kerry said...

True. And a tablescape to "crow" about too!

Sarah said...

Judy, this is a clever post. I think we've all had to eat crow at some point in time. This is a beautiful table and a wonderful thoughtful post.......Sarah

What a darling table-setting. You make me want to get up and decorate, something I've been avoiding this year.

Great table! Those crows look SO realistic as though they just flew in for a snack.

Designs By Pinky said...

This was so clever! I love the IDEA and the tablescape. Hoe you swallowed quickly:) XO, PInky

Judy, here is how I dry hydrangeas: after cutting them I put them in a bucket with about an inch or 2 of water. I keep them in the garage and when the water evaporates they are dried! This method has worked for me for 20 years. Hope this helps.

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

How clever is your "eat crow" tablescape? I love it.
