"Its title is Dressed to Dance!
"Here is what Carol says:
'Everything she is made from I have gathered or grown. My little Bay mare donated mane hair. My Auntie and Uncle grow the gourds. I picked and strung Madrone berries for beads. I gathered the cattails just down the road (I live in the country) and my husband threw his jacket over porcupine and was blessed with a few quills (her earrings). She looks as if she is waiting outside the Arbor for her turn to dance.'
"This is an absolutely lovely gourd. The head is a mini gourd with a woodburned face. I get such a warm feeling from it. "
