  1. Great! Thank you for interesting information, dear Bette!

  2. Thanks for sharing this Bette, would like to read more…hopping over!

  3. A great share, Bette. I love Beatrix Potter.

  4. I love her books and am going to see her house Hill Top in the Lake District later this summer. Thank you for this lovely share, Bette! She’s an inspiration to all writers. 😀❤ Ps. It’s interesting how she came to name many of her characters- from the local churchyard. That’s how I came across the name for my short story win.

    • Oh how wonderful, Annika…a visit to Beatrix Potter’s house! Thanks so much for sharing her story on naming characters. She remains an inspiration to so many. 🙂 xo

  5. Oh, I didn’t know! Thank you Bette! I love her stories and beautiful illustrations so very much! 😄
    Have a lovely day! 💕

    • Me too, dear Sarah! Her story inspired me to illustrate and self-publish Amazing Matilda. You have a lovely weekend, my friend. 🙂

      • She was and still is a great source of inspiration to so many artists and writers! My favorite coffee mugs display Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck 😉

  6. Ageless writing and illustrations. Thanks for sharing, Bette.

  7. Happy birthday to one of my favorite authors, too-Beatrix Potter! 🎂🎂🎂Thanks, Bette, for passing this along!

  8. Happy Birthday, Beatrix! Thanks for this post, Bette! Ms. Potter was a woman ahead of her time – determined and goal oriented!

  9. That movie with Renee Zellweger just came on the other day! She made a very good Beatrix Potter. I’ve always loved her work, and I have an old edition of Peter Rabbit in my bookcase. 🙂

  10. Annika, Maybe Bette will have you showy our pictures if you take some on your trip. I know I’d love to see them.

    Happy Birthday, Beatrix Potter. You were an excellent illustrator and writer. So glad we still have your work with us.

    Bette, I’d love to have you post this on our group forum. And I’ve got to see that movie. LOL What’s the title of the movie, C.M?

  11. I was never a big fan of Beatrix Potter until I saw the movie with Renee Zellweger. Somehow knowing the backstory brought her books to life for me for the first time! Thanks for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday at Mommynificent.com this week!
