Wordless Wednesday: December 5, 2012

On December 1st, Indian River State College in Ft. Pierce hosted their annual DECA Bazaar.  This juried craft extravaganza is the epitome of shopping local and each table featured unique, handcrafted items from Treasure Coast artisans. 🙂  A booth of painted African gourds was among the most spectacular:

  1. These are amazing. I’ve never seen gourds painted up as Santa and snowmen, they’re very gnomish looking too. I like these alot. Thanks for posting them, they made me smile. 🙂

  2. It is a very long time since Father x/mas visited Africa. Just think they look odd, like a Ming vase embellished with a picture of London bridge. They just don’t look authentic. But very colorful and fun.

    • Hello!
      I didn’t think they were real, honestly. I asked the woman (who must get the question alot!) and she produced an unpainted real fruit for me to examine.
      🙂 got a good chuckle out of your Ming Vase comment….LOL hadn’t thought of it that way!

  3. I’m not sure where ours originated, but my husband and I picked up a painted Santa gourd years ago! It’s on a table for the rest of the month. 🙂
