I love GOURDS! I love dirty gourds, clean gourds, green gourds....all gourds!! I even love the way they smell! Yes they do have a smell and I love it!
I guess that is why I have been called "Gourdqueen" for over 20 years.

This is a pic of some of my dirty gourds out back in the "gourd shack". How many do I have? I have no clue! I have them everywhere!
Where did I get them you ask? Everywhere!!! I live down in south Mississippi and have driven as far as Kansas to bring home a trailer full of gourds.
I met these folks in Kansas on ebay! Yep I bought their gourds on ebay for years and finally decided to drive up there and buy a BUNCH!
We became great friends and I even named her the "GourdFairy". Her gourds are the most beautiful I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of gourds.

Sooooooo if you are ever interested in buying any gourds ya gotta check out "Kgourd" on ebay.
She has some auctions up now for the most perfect coyote gourds I have ever seen and they are cleaned. Coyote gourds are the hardest gourds there are to clean.
If you win any gourds from kgourd be sure to drop me a a line and tell me what you think!

Everytime I see your gourds, my jaw drops to the floor. Can we say obsession? I feel the same way though. Thank you for telling me about kgourds a few years back. She sells the best and the cleanest gourds I have ever bought. Especially the coyote gourds. It was you who encouraged me to do my first gourd, now aren't you sorry? BWAAhhaaah
luv ya, Tammy
