Christmas give-a-way, ornament starter set.

All for you. An ornament starter set including a mushroom house, a grey kitty with a red holiday bow, rabbit's cup to hang from the tree, a rabbit with a toadstool, chicken on a silver nest and there has to be a bluebird flying by spreading happiness over your holidays.
just leave a way for me to find you if I draw your name with your comment. And don't be shy now. I'd love to send these to you no matter where you live, that means from Greenland to Sydney and back again.
'Trixie'. An oil on board by Laura Ferrara. Every time I look at this (I've only had it one day, but still) it lifts my heart. Gentle and moving, quirky and endearing. Laura's beautiful spirit eminates from her works.

More of Laura's wonderful works. I think I might be a collector. Blog and links here:

Listing update this weekend.....



A new spoon design with a fox looking down on a snow scene in the country




and a dog who is hoping someone will invite him in. He's yearning to show off his new hat.

What a wonderful post! Your work, a giveaway, and some pretty art I had not seen before. I only have one piece of your work--a gift from a friend--and every day it makes me happy and lifts my spirits...so I know what you mean about Laura's art lifting yours. I could look at your work forever...and do sometimes!

I'm sure we all agree if we sat on Santa's lap and he smiled and said, "HO HO HO and what would YOU like for Christmas?" We would say, "Well, Santa, when you get back to the North Pole, Right away before you eat any cookies go on your computer and look on Julie Whitmore's Blog! See those Beauties? That's what WE want!!! Oh, and We have been really really GOOD!" Would love anything you make and would be so excited to Share with my buds!!! Thank-you, Julie, for a chance at such a generous and gorgeous Give-A-Way!

What a wonderful set of ornaments (that would probably be up ALL year long in my house!) ~ Please enter me in the hat! Thank you!

A Mermaid's Tale said...

Your work always makes me smile Julie, and your ability to do that is a true indicator of your passion for what you create. You are an artist and craftsperson rolled into one! You have obviously retained that childhood dream that I think everyone has when growing up of imagining that all the little creatures can talk. All the best children's stories featured talking animals don't you think?
Pop my name into your hat, do!

Oh Id be honored to have some of your work. As a potter I delight in how different we are using the same clay.

Librarian said...

May I add my name, too? These ornaments would make the perfect Christmas gift for my mum - I often look at your works and think how much my mum would love them and how well they'd fit the style of her decorating the house.
So, who knows :-)
(I already have a Christmas present for her, but she is my mum - there is never something like too many presents for one's mum, is there?)

dulcy said...

I love the two little pieces I recently got! Your work is charming. I left a comment on flicker, but again... I'm very enamored with foxes because we've had a couple of different fox families born and raised pretty much right outside our door. Five pups and two adults. My husband is a photographer, and had his tripod set up during the entire four weeks or so until the pups were weaned and the family moved on. Please include me in your drawing!
Thanks Julie,
Dulcy

"Pick me, pick me" I am Pooh, jumping up and down shouting the above. Dear Julie, your work is fantabulous. I go into my innocent child whenever I cast my gaze upon it. It is magical and medicinal :)
If I was "the chosen one" your beautiful little pieces would be out in full view year round. Thank you for the work you do. Love and blessings, Sheri
