a glimpse of magic

I've known Julie Arkell a long time...
long enough to know that she doesn't quite see 
the world the way the rest of us do.  

She sees it in colors and textures that feel like they are left over from a childhood, but not just the  childhood of her own lifetime, but one that is older and sweeter in memory that hers and mine put together...
 
The beautiful thing about an artist creating...
I believe it far surpasses the object they create; 
the beauty is in their capacity to share the way they see things with us. 
And in that glimpse you can catch the whiff of magic.

 As ever I am honored and thrilled to share Julie's work with our customers and her collectors...at this point, Julie's work is harder than hen's teeth to get from her...she is so busy teaching she does not have as much time to creat as she -- or I -- would like. But I love that she share her talents...did you see the recent article in PRIMS featuring Julie?? It was a treat...

It's just been loaded with some wonderful works we have to share...some even at promo pricing, which is nice for us to be able to do...

 
 these two sisters are my personal faves...I want a bunny-eared hat like this!
 ...of course this 3 piece set takes the cake...
 ...and her brooches are fab too...
...thanks Julie for sharing your peek at the planet...
I adore it as much as I adore you...
 xxoo Jen
