Hi Mari,
Your pink gourd is very pretty; love the shape of it and the sparkles! Why would anyone want orange when you can have pink?

Blessings,
Sandi

I agree with Sandi! Who needs fall colors?

Hi Mari :) Girl, you did a great job decorating these pretty pink gords!! Well done!! I may just have to give this a try myself. I typically don't decorate for the fall holidays, other than for xmas, but seeing some blogs having these pretty pink pumpkins and gords, like yours, makes me want to do a little decorating for Halloween :) Hmmmmmm :)

Hope you are having a great week so far!

Warmest hugs to you sweet bloggie friend!! Brenda

HI MARI, these are very pretty indeed.... just the right shade of pink. I might just get the real gourds and paint them using the glitter. At a glance your gourd look like a curvy women with arms sticking out of it with no head. hehe do you see it? Anyways you got me thinking about decorating for fall in the glamorous way. I also would like to get my hands on some of those white pumkins too.

By the way it's always so nice seeing peeks of your home in the background..... you have very lovely things.

Take Care.... sending hugs your way*

Thanks for sharing!!!

Dearest Mari,

Thanks for your visit and comment! Meet the girls tonight as I will publish their blog...
By the way, our previous cat from the Humane Society who died because of heart worm (the Vet didn't provide us with the Revolution but instead gave us Frontline and that does NOT protect against this dreaded worm) was named Boots in his adoption papers...

Love your elegant gourds; what an idea! Very creative for letting autumn sparkle life inside the home; good for rainy days!

Sunny greetings from Georgia,

Hi My Sweet Friend,
Oh I love all the inspiring pink you have glittered and displayed. The gourds are fab and look wonderful. I love glitter too with tulle and pink, as you already know!! You sure are busy and yes, full of creative talents.
Your Autumn home is amazing and I look forward to seeing the rest of your pics closer to Halloween.

Till then, happy creating and sharing your pretties with all of us. I don't have to go far for my pink inspirations my friend.
Have a wonderful day.

Hi, Mari,
You know "pink" is perfect to me, and I especially love the idea of pink gourds. You did a fantastic job on them, and I am sure they will look absolutely wonderful on your mantle along with your pink frosty fruits. The tulle and rose are perfect accents!! Enjoy your week ahead, dear friend! Vicki

Becca said...

Hi Mari, THANK YOU for enjoying my Fall tree! I really did enjoy putting it up ... and am thankful I have one done already!! I can only imagine what your gorgeous trees will look like. I'm guessing there might be pink in them?! :) Thanks again, *Becca*
