A little about me.. My name is Julie..I am a mom of four, and have too many animals to mention..I live on a small farm in Idaho. I started making pottery after I sold my flower business of twenty years..I had always wanted to take time to learn the wheel throwing process and once I did , I was hooked. I bought a wheel and kiln and have a small studio in my barn. You can probably see that I make mostly vases..Well , I love flowers, and grow all of the flowers you see on my blog, and being in the flower business and all it was just a natural thing for me to make..So thanks for taking time and reading a bit about my life.







And here is a bowl..i do make other things..on occasion.







During The Home Tour, I will be offering twenty percent off my Etsy shop! So please stop by..I will be adding more things in these next two days.
As my thank you for stopping by, I will be offering three giveaways! This bowl, and two vases for my door prize. There will be three winners.So, please leave a comment and I will be drawing a name on Wed. morning and announce the winners of the drawing.
Thank you so much for attending this Virtual Home Show! I would like to invite you to the next stop on your tour:
Karen Wittkop http://misseskwitty.blogspot.com who makes awesome things!!

For any of you on the fence about ordering some of Julies work, I can attest, my vase is heavy, beautiful and just enough one of a kind personality that you know it isn't mass produced in some factory. I am so happy with my purchase, every time I look at it I smile.
