Never Look a Gift Horse in The Mouth!!!

Baby Doll is a very talented Cowgirl as you all know. She is a pastry chef and most of you have seen/tasted her wonderful bakery goods. However as if she isn't already more creative in her little toe than I could ever be...she decided to learn a new craft during her season in AZ this year and I am the very lucky recipient of the project she worked on all season!

This was staged so you all could see this wonderful work of art!
As you can see...Baby Doll used a Heineken Box to wrap my gift in...maybe a gift wrapping course would be in line for next season???
At first I thought for sure she had made me a Jackolantern...
But...look at this this gourd...Baby Doll learned to etch..and weave the pine needles at the top...and much more was done that I can't remember. She attached it to a beautiful slab of marble!!!
Baby Doll told me that she had wanted to make me something for my tack room, but there is NOFUCKINGWAY (25 cents in the cuss jar) that I would display it there. This beautiful etched gourd is going in my desert house ad I know the perfect place for it!

Thank you Baby Doll for this wonderful gift...you must love me a lot to spend so much time to make e something so beautiful!!!

Your Desert Rose!
