I just told my husband a week ago that we should plant some gourds (after going to an inspiring place in Big Sur which I will blog about soon) and now you have REALLY made this project a done deal...is it too late in the season to plant???? These are so beautiful! Thanks for sharing Ruthie!

I love these beautiful gourds, I've been wanting to do some for quite a while. They look so cozy and warm when lit!

Well... I couldn't wait. I bought some beautiful gourds at the pumpkin patch. The planting will have to wait until next year! I'll keep you posted too : )

Penny, you must let me know how you get on with them! I remember my Grandmother used to grow them many moonsa ago & dried them afterwards, they were wonderful to draw too.
