I was contacted by Bonnie Gibson of the AZ gourd society and she was to do a feature on my work. I am so excited. I tried to get something going when I live in Tombstone but it just didn't happen, I guess everything in its own good time. Now that I am in Oregon they contact me. Go figure.
Will let you know when it come out.
Make a body feel good to know that someone is looking at your work.
Check out my new blog at http://jansgourds.blogspot.com
There are a few of my gourds on there.
Please stop by and visit me there.
I haven't done alot with my gourds lately but I have good intentions. I am up to my eyeballs in a new lab puppy just now. She has put such a demand on all my waking hours not to mention my sleeping hours too, that I haven't been able to do alot of the things that I need to do. I do look forward to getting back to work on my White Buffalo of the Plains gourd as soon as I can get myself organized again.
In case you haven't seen her, here is a recent photo taken a couple of days ago.
Isn't she just the ugliest thing you ever saw. Just kidding of course. I have forgotten what a handful new puppies are to break of chewing and all the other goodies that go along with puppy hood.
Jan, that lab puppy is grand..
I didn't find an email on your blog to contact you last year, I'll check it out agian.
Jo, that Prissy is just gorgeous. She looks like she already is a heartbreaker.
I'm sorry about Tessa.
ridesredmule, I love your name. I always wanted a horse and a donkey.. been thinking about getting one of those mini horses, but, my DH said he just knows that I'll want to bring him inside the house for the winter..lol
I know this is a little off topic, but we have cow dairies here and sometimes the cows play with each other and nudge each other. They have feelings and I love watching them, they almost look like big dogs to me. They make eye contact and have feelings, I love animals. Sometimes I drive by there just to see if there are any new babies that day, I get to see them be born lots of times. It is amazing. Thank you.
But that is a wonderful thing to do. Watch animals. My Longears play ,run, eat
and fuss, just like people. they have a "pecking order" That big red mule, I have thinks he is the boss,
but the Donkeys girls know who rule. They do. Chickens do the same thing. Ever watch a hummingbird???
Oh, my gosh!!! they are amazing too.
There is a restruant in Three Rivers, Calif that has over a dozen hummingbird feeds hanging along the windows. You can eat and watch the hummers feeding. And yes they can be territorial. Sometimes its like one picks its favorite feeder and defends it against others try to use it.
Yes those little hummers are something, I get a couple of Rufus at the beginning of the season and at the end season when they pass through, and they seem to be more territorial than the Annas and Blackchinned.
Well all of my Beaded gourds are in a gallery now here in Toledo, OR. They are for sale as well as my beaded sword fish bill. Just a few pics to remind you of what they look like. I still haven't finished the White Buffalo. I know, I know, if I don't hurry up and finish it, my eyes will give out. lol.
I still have him until he sells. I will never get what I was offered in AZ which was $20,000 but I was a fool to turn him down. I have him in a gallery here in Toledo for $5000. After 2 1/2 years worth of work I think its worth that much, but I dicker, hehehe
