"Thank-you Sammy, honestly I don't know where I purchased this gourd but any of the gourd farms should have gourds the size of this one."

"This is absolutely beautiful!  And I can hardly believe the size of that gourd.  I have a large one but its only about 26 inches in diameter.  Where did you find such a gourd?"

I love you gourd art. Very, very nice!    We are about 45 mins or so, west of Gainesville, so that would be great. Hope to see you soon.

Ahh, so that's how the beauty of your wood burning shows thru using glaze, I have glaze but haven't used it in awhile.  It almost makes your paints transparent like using dyes, but with a more dramatic effect.

Hi Debra, Charlotte here to thank you for your comments. You should see the gourds he has grown since then, and I think we have the largest selection of egg gourds in our area thanks to him.

As far as Cody, our Yellow Lab, I'm sad to say we lost him to cancer. We loved him so much because of his intelligence and personality that when the time came, we got Casey, another Yellow Lab. He is going on 6 yr.s now, carmel colored, with the big Bear size head. Both dogs topped the scale @ 100+ at about 3 yrs. Very large, but fit. And Casey was concidered the runt of a large litter, choosing us the minute we entered his yard.

Happy Gourding
