The pumpkin stand

Saturday, September 25, 2010

Last weekend we set up a pumpkin stand for the kids. I didn't know that Blair would enjoy being an entrepreneur so much. We set it up at 10 am and she was determined to sit there all day until we made her come inside. She even took her lunch outside to her table so she would not miss customers. We don't get much traffic in front of our house so when she would see a car at the corner, she would hold up gourds and jump up and down and say, "Get your gourds here!" I watched a few cars make a u-turn and come back to her. Each of them said they should hire her to do their sales.

The left over gourds.
I added to them by making another trip to the produce auction with a friend. We scored some great deals on peanut pumpkins, turbin pumpkins and cinderella pumpkins.
The black gourd in the middle takes center stage because she looks like a black swan.

More gourds on a shelf.
You could say I've "gourd" crazy.
Ha ha, couldn't resist...

Happy beginning of Fall!
