More Gourds To Share

Hey blogger buddies ,I am still chugging away at the old craft room.Hubby has promised to build  a cabinet for my paint this weekend  and that will help me tremendously. I have quite a lot of paint  and it is hard to store it all neatly. The gourds that I had painted for shows in the past have been stored on shelves on the walls of my craft room and now I am going to store them away into plastic tubs .I wanted to share a few more with you before I put them up.I hope that I am not boring you to tears.It is going to be heavy  picture post,sorry about that and the quality of pics.My son's girlfriend took the photos of the other ones I shared.It amazes me that today is the first day of September! Wow ,where did the summer go ? It  seems like it just got started.May the Fall be a slower pace and just maybe we will all be able to slow down and enjoy it .Well now on with the gourd show,you might want to get  glass of your favorite drink and get comfortable.

This penguin is wearing a pair of glasses .$12.00 + shipping

Cute gourds! I am so not talented at painting, so I think it's pretty cool that you can paint so well, and on gourds!
