That looks really great!  Did you grow the gourds yourself?

I sure did. This year I grew snake gourds and dippers. They are drying as we speak. Next year I'll pick 2 new kinds.
I asked for a jig saw and a rotary tool for Christmas so I can cut cleaner holes in them.

It's really nice! I really would like to try and make something out of a gourd. My grand-pa grows some, so I think I'll ask him about that.

Wow the henna turned out really neat!  I think henna is absolutely gorgeous.

I love this!

Just out of curiosity -- I love the look of henna, but don't know much about it -- is it permanent? Will it wash off if you hang the birdhouse outside?

Great job!

the way to create art
is to burn and destroy ordinary concepts
and to substitute them with new truths
that run down from the top of the head
and out from the heart.
- Charles Bukowski
