Happy 90 Days until Christmas! "90 Days Until Christmas" is a big holiday at my house because it is the official kick-off to the "getting ready for the winter holidays"!
I am celebrating by putting up my 90 day count down to Christmas calendar and putting the final coat of spray on my Matryoshka ornament...

Since I couldn't entice a single bird family to move into my hanging gourd bird house this spring, I decided to fill it with plants! I cut and cleaned a couple more gourds to keep it company.
Some people use small saws or even electric tools to carve an opening in the gourd. I prefer to use those ubiquitous little pumpkin saws. The smaller teeth work better than the bigger teeth.
Before cutting, I usually draw a design on the surface, but for this project - I just cut a circle - sort of! With all those leaves - who is to know it isn't perfect?

I am having way too much fun playing with gourds and I just have to share!
- I decorated the two larger gourds in the background last winter and I have enjoyed them so much I decided to make a couple tiny ornaments using the same designs.
- I had one little gourd that just begged and begged to be a snowman!
- During the past year, I tried my hand at drying a bunch of those colorful, knobby, little gourds we see in every fall produce display. And I found a very simple way to make them very festive!
