Julie Whitmore's Enchanting World

Illustration on hand-formed French Faience Pottery
by Julie Whitmore
Welcome to the enchanting art and world of Julie Whitmore. Of the two, I'm not sure which is most delightful; and when I say, "world," I do mean it. Visiting Julie's blog will transport you to the English countryside and all things pertaining to cottages and gardens. Except that come to find out, Julie lives in the U.S. on the coast of central California! No problem -- this simply means your visit to her blog will be like taking two mini-vacations at once!

Filled with photographs of her lovely, whimsical, French faience pottery, Julie's blog also provides ample glimpses of her home and studio, her daily activities and many interests, and the natural beauty of the region. Add to all of that the fact that she has created an amazing, imaginative world full of lovely women, birds, butterflies, bees, dragonflies, and charming woodland animals, (all painted on undulating clay, mind you) and it all makes for a wonderfully good read and a grand sense of contentment.

When you visit Julie's blog, be sure to look for her posts showing photos of those nattily attired woodland animals, and also the ones about the lovely necklaces she makes from pottery that has broken along the way. Lucky for us, Julie's pottery is available for purchase in her Etsy shop, here. Have fun in Julie's corner of the world!
