Good lady, Gourd lady . .. . .. . .. .

This is Millie and her new bossom buddy (I've forgotten the gourd lady's name). Millie won her in a drawing at our classmate monthly get together. She was made by one of the lady's talented sisters and Millie gets to keep her until our next get together. I am growing gourds this year, now if I could just make something this cute! I have joined the area Gourd Patch and hope to learn how to polinate the gourds and maybe hand train a few into some wild shapes. I mistakenly thought the meeting was last Saturday, but we will be getting together this Saturday to make gourd name tags.........I'll take my camera!


  1. You know? My aunt just got me a gourd bikini top. It's the cutest thing ever! At first, I couldn't figure out what it was, but then I put it one and it fit!!! Which is the depressing because the gourds weren't that big ;(

    I can't wait to see the pics when you come back, gourd art is precious. When I was growing up we used to have gourd cups and bowl. It didn't have anything to do with the fact that my family was crafty--it was all about economic situation--but they look great!

  2. Life is meant to be enjoyed.
