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!

PFATT Marketplace For May!

Here is finished gourd #1, Sunflower Gourd Basket.
It is now available on the PFATT Marketplace.

Now to decide what the other basket will be...........

All Guts Are Not Created Equal!

Well they're not! Especially gourd guts!
You can see in these pics that there was not a gourd pod for the seeds in the second gourd.
They were contained in a papery membrane and some loose in the gourd. Compare pics from earlier posts of the first gourd.
I much prefer the pod and so does my nose!!!

Here the insides of each gourd have been covered to make the gourd stronger.

Once I finish the first gourd I will start on the second.
I am doing a Sunflower theme for the first but I don't know yet what I will do on the second.

Pics of the finished gourd coming shortly.
