Coraline Gourd

Yesterday was Matea's 4th birthday and Crafty Papa and I gave her this amazing Coraline gourd painted by Lena.

Doesn't it look exactly like Coraline?

Matea was so excited. "Coraline" is her favorite movie and I caught her hanging on the couch with Coraline watching tv. She wanted to sleep with her too but I convinced her that might get uncomfortable.

I can't tell you how detailed and truly amazing Lena's work is in person. You can check out her gourds in her Etsy shop here. I've given them as gifts to my mom, mother-in-law and now Matea and they've always been a hit.
