Painted gourd mini me house.

Michele, my niece, painted this gourd for me for Christmas. Can you believe? Isn't it cute? It's a "sorta" painting of my house, a Cape Cod that is pale yellow with pink doors and shutters.

Why do I take pictures with everything in the background. It's hard finding a place in this house where there is nothing in the background. I like stuff. That's why. :)


  1. I think Gourds are so sweet when done up in different styles. How sweet is this one? Just adorable.

  2. That is the cutest thing. I can't paint on paper so I can't imagine painting a gourd with all those curves. And, I like that you have "stuff" in your pictures.

  3. Super cute! And stuff in the background, I know all about it.


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
