I love ALL the gourds!!!!! Each type has it's own special charm. I would find it hard to settle on just one.

Am I blind or is the whipped mango body butter not listed in your store? I looked twice & couldn't find it. Confused Blinking

Well, Trish, you know he had to start sometime. They grow up way too fast!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Your gourds are BEAUTIFUL Trish and hats off to the painters - WOW! Thumbs up

I have a lady bug house just like your son's that Hank made for me but it's not painted and just plain dull wood - now I'm inspired to paint it Hurray!

Oh dear Trish, those little ones do grow up much too fast. My first baby turned 42 this past week Crying

Ann- you are right- the Mango hasn't made it to my store yet....I'm missing a picture! Evidently I used up all my inspiration this week and a picture of white whipped butter isn't all that exciting Green Grin!
I'll stick it up for now without a picture.

Funny, Vic- I'm the one who told him to paint them, and of course all of the unpainted ones sold, and not the painted ones Rolling my eyes. I kinda felt bad about it.

Those gourds really are magnificent. Pieces of art, all of them.

I agree Dave. I love the stained ones but then I love the whimsical charm of the snow girls & the painted ones are great & I love those Painted ladies too --- they are like something Old World.

Great Gourds!

I didn't know you were an artist, too, Trish.

And it sure sounds like you have some great new products in your store. You've been busy!
