"OH WOW!  I really love that idea.  Colors are spot on but I'm so blown away by the simplicity of the design. but it is really so very elegant.  Great design, I have never seen this type of cut-out leaf design.  "

Welcome to the "gourd" world.  The Idaho Gourd Society meets in Meridian the second Saturday of every month, if you are interested, please come check us out, I'll save you a seat. 

Haven't golfed in many years, would love to dust the clubs off again.

My email address is sunnyslopegourds@safelink.net and we are in the phone book.

This may seem wierd, but it's a small world.  Are you the Michele I played golf with at Shadow Valley?

Welcome, Michele. We’re glad you’re here. There are many activities and discussions for you to participate in. Look around and join in. And have fun! Please feel free to add a profile picture – and, of course, your own gourd photos. We are limited to 25 photos per person at a time, though, so if you want to add more than that, you’ll need to delete some older ones so there will be room for everyone’s pictures. Thanks, and again, welcome. Darlene
