No, this is not Miss Cecile. This is the scarecrow my friend Miss Cecile made. This scarecrow's name is Daisy. I think this is the fourth or fifth year of Daisies. Daisy stands in the vegetable garden of the Mauldin House Gardens, the public garden where I volunteer. This year Daisy's a little older, she is now wearing her hair up. Miss Cecile has her dressed to be a governess or a teacher sort of person. I think she made her face by covering a gourd with paper clay, which is like paper mache'. Miss Cecile is a seamstress who worked in the fashion industry. She can make anything she wants to make. Her main art form is jewelry since that's how she makes her living. You can see her work here- always so well done.
