Found: White Pumpkins

I'm pleased to announce the WHITE PUMPKIN arrival!
White pumpkins can now be found just about anywhere here in Louisiana.
Finally.


As you may know, my sweet hubby is diligently working on a chicken coop
for little chicks arriving next week.
Since we had some chicken wire lying around, I made two cloches.


Here's a quick DIY:

1. Wear gloves! (I know you wish you had some like mine)
2. Cut the wire the size that you want the cloche to be.


3. Hook the wires to inter-lock and hold it together.


 4. Gather the top and "scrunch" it to the middle to make
the little handle on top, folding all edges down.


 Done!


 Add ribbon or burlap if you wish.


Then have fun moving them all around your house taking pictures :)




Happy White Wednesday to all my friends!
