Selling Gourds

I still can't quite believe it, but I brought my first gourds to the Farmer's Market last Saturday and sold almost all of them. I felt very lucky and very honored. I sold two of the ones I showed you the other day. And here are some new ones that I took pictures of that morning but are also now in new homes:

Gourd Gourd Gourd

It's a strange thing selling something you make. I was worried that I wouldn't want to make any more, only to have them disappear so quickly. I didn't want it to turn into a job—maybe a job, but not work—to think too much of the money and how much time I spent making them. So far so good. I finally got a chance to work tonight, and it was just as fun as before...


  1. Those are beautiful! What do you use to cut them?

  2. Would you believe a Gourd Saw? :)

    Thanks for the kind words. Wait til you see the one I started last night...
