And once again it is time for us to prepare for gourd crafting on Monday (Labor Day) at the Pumpkin Patch Harvest Festival!

The festival takes place all weekend long showcasing gorgeous, yummy harvest produce and offering family fun and scrumptious food.

From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, we - my sweetie and I - will be set up right in front of the Market most of the day on Monday - September 5th - offering anyone who wishes, the chance to sit in the shade on a hay bale and decorate a gourd.

(That's somebody else's sweetie decorating that gourd.  Quite the enthusiastic artist, too!)

This year I have been cleaning ornament size gourds - about 200. And I hope to entice a few visitors into trying their hand at Zentangle Inspired Gourd Art.

You can see some more of the pictures from last year here.

If you are in the area, come visit! Say hello! Play with us!

Then enjoy a big fat juicy delicious hamburger (they make the best hamburgers!) and let the kids conquer the hay pyramid or get lost in the corn maze.

As for me - I am taking a few days off from blogging to prepare. Still got lots of gourds to clean. See you again after Labor Day.

Hope you have a great day and well, you're going to have to plan a well earned rest after it. Take care and TFS
