Gotta Start somewhere...



After reading so many wonderful blogs, I thought I'd start my own. I look forward to sharing my projects and finds. I dabble in a lot of things, but my main hobby is tole painting. I love hunting for treasures at thrift stores, flea markets, and auctions.
So I thought I'd start with the gourds I just finished painting. Once a year we go to Canton, Tx to the trade days. A couple of years ago we took a different route and came across what looked to be a vegetable stand on the side of the road. Much to my surprise and delight, it turned out to be a gourd stand. It is run on the honor system, each table has a price on it, and you leave your money in a mailbox. It is run by the sweetest 80+ year old man whom we met the first year. Anyways here are a few of the craziest gourd santa's....
