Whimsy And Whiskers


In our travels down ' blog highway' we oftentimes run across blogs which are near and dear to our hearts.
You know the ones I'm describing , they literally have a way of drawing us in.

Several weeks ago I was left a lovely comment by a dear lady who had visited my blog, and in return, I paid her a visit.
I am so glad I did....
Her blog is one of the most delightful, and enchanting places, I get completely absorbed in it's whimsy.

It's creator Jeri Landers is an artist, author and illustrator, who also shares a passion for gardening, love of animals, and storytelling.
She paints and brings her characters alive, in the same talented and whimsical style as Beatrix Potter.
"Hopalong Hollow, where the blueberries grow sweet, and the moss feels soft beneath your feet."
Set in the woodland of Hopalong Hollow she tells the tales of Mrs. Whiskerkins, Trudy Webbytoes, Bushky Bushybottom and all the creatures who dwell in the hollow.


Trudy Webbytoes


Home for Jeri is the surrounding lush, green hillsides of rural northeastern Tennessee, she lives in a 120 year old house, named Ochre Moon Manor with her husband and a menagerie of creatures great and small.

Stop by and pay her a visit..... you'll be completely enchanted !

I was off the air completely yesterday so am catching up on yesterday blogs and today blogs, i will definitely pay her a visit. I think your site is enchanting, so I can't think how hers will be. I wanted to paint all my life and could not, now I use my camera, which is almost as good.
