    A lovely lady and artist. Thanks for sharing.


  2. 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!


  3. 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?

    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. 🙂


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


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


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


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


  9. 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.
