Lauren, Lily,and Lainey had a great time painting their jewelry boxes at the Painting Party. Lauren’s mom, Kim, provided the delicious treats and I made the flower arrangement. Nothing says fall like Sunflowers and pumpkins!
I love having a ton of these big gourds in the fall; but they can be very pricey. Here is a trick I learned many years ago. After the season is over, I leave them in the garage until the following year. They have dried by that time, and so I paint them to their original color and seal them with poly acrylic. Some of the gourds in this basket are over 10 years old!
