Loving Lately: I Have a Thing for Gourds

I'm all about gourds in the Fall. I love how they are all at once earthy and beautiful and weird.  I love decorating with them as soon as the air starts to get that little crispness in it.  Not only do they make a beautiful natural decoration but they're a relatively cheap way to spruce up your decor and mark the change of seasons. 
 
 
Needless to say, when I walked into the grocery store last week and saw a huge bin of them in all their freaky glory I was admittedly a bit giddy.  What can I say, I'm easy to please. 
 
 
I grabbed up a bunch of the most interesting looking ones I could find along with a few ears of dried Indian corn cobs. The whole lot of them cost around $8.  When I got home, I arranged them in a large hurricane vase and voila....a gorgeous Fall centerpiece.
 
 
And that, my friends, is what I'm loving lately.  Gourds.  I love gourds and I'm not afraid to admit it.   Now get out of here and go gourd shopping.  You know you want to...
 
 
I'm linking up with the lovely hosts of Loving Lately today!

I must go now...I've already said too much.
xoxo,

I thought of you yesterday when I harvested a single gourd from the trail of vines growing out of my compost bin. :)
