Hi Jule,
Just to let you know that the lamp has arrived safe and sound, got it last week. Thanks for packing it so well, it got here in perfect condition. I absolutely LOVE it, just gorgeous! The flowers and beading are just divine and the lace is beautiful!

Anyway, it's the highlight of the lounge room and brightens it up beautifully! So happy that I was lucky enough to buy it and I will certainly enjoy this stunning lamp, for years to come!
Many thanks, Rebecca, WA

And again, thanks so very much.

Hi Jule,
I am sending you this message, to let you know how you inspired me into making a picture frame collage of my Grandmother.  She was a big influence in my life, and I loved her dearly, so what better tribute could I give her, than to make something incorporating all the things that she loved, made, and where typically her.  
Thank you Jule for your inspiration & keep up the great work.   
Yours thankfully, Janine Arwadi

Thank you so much for the excellent customer service! 
Kind regards, Kimberli, NZ

Lollipop Land is now open!



True Love inspires an adventure into the unknown!

‘Farewell Lollipop Land, the journey begins’ ….. a unique Christmas Wonderland experience, is now open at Old Petrie Town.

With more than 150 hand-sculpted characters by Original one-of-a-kind Doll Artist, Chris Boston and designed by Visual Display Artist Jule Barten, Lollipop Land continues to charm both adults and children alike with a brand new version created annually.

This year, well-known Dragon, Mr Trufflewafflepuff, has reportedly fallen in love with Ms Lulu Lovebug and they are on their way to ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’! Accompanied by all their friends from Lollipop Land, the expedition is led by the Three Wise Women, because men won’t ask for directions and there are plenty of other surprises in-store for everyone to discover too.

Visitors are encouraged to solve the ‘seek and find’ clues that are scattered throughout the display and thankfully, the only passport that is required to go on this magical journey with the fairies and elves, is a healthy vaccination of fertile imagination!

Lollipop Land is now open until January 22 at Old Petrie Town, 901 Dayboro Road, Whiteside. There are unlimited Christmas photo opportunities for families, including a life-sized Unicorn in the Enchanted Forest, to sit on!

‘Ms Lulu Lovebug and Mr Trufflewafflepuff’ – Hand-sculpted Dragons by OOAK Doll Artist Chris Boston.
Each dragon stands at over 1m high and is lovingly created with a combination of clay, wire, recycled fabrics and embellishments; even the ‘eyes’ are hand-crafted!

Lollipop Land is the whimsical creation of designer and dreamer, Jule aged 57 and Chris aged 63, a multi-award winning doll artist whose 30 year career, has seen her exhibit both Nationally and Internationally. The two self-funded artists have managed to create a totally unique Christmas experience that promises to leaving a lasting impression on their visitors. The characters in Lollipop Land have taken more than two years to make and the display itself, represents more than 600 ‘women hours’ of work, not counting the months of preparation in advance, making the props, etc.

This year’s exhibition is all about focusing on the journey of life and not being so hung up on the destination, as everyone is so busy these days. Powered by ‘Love and Stardust’, the journey is meant to be taken slowly enabling visitors to see all the small details and it is hoped that by the end of your journey to Somewhere over the Rainbow, that you will Bee-lieve!

LOLLIPOP LAND can be found in the function centre next-door to the Heritage Hotel at Old Petrie Town, 901 Dayboro Road, Whiteside.
