My beautiful home grown gourds from last year’s garden are finally dried (yes it seems to have taken a full 12 months). But now I am finally trying to figure what to make of them. I am quite taken with these lovely (made from gourds) garden lamps from studiotempera on Etsy.
Last week while shooting for an upcoming article in Leaf Magazine I came across a huge tableful of stained and polished gourds. This is kinda the way of things are Brimfield….you really just never know what there will be a big table of around the next corner. I really like these too — and they would be much simpler to create….but then I am not sure what I would do with them. Which would you do?….the obviously complicated and potentially tricky (but more impressive) lamps, or the simple stained (but nicely earthy) versions.
