Beatrix Potter

Pin It Now!

I love Beatrix Potter and I have such fond memories of reading her stories to my children when they were little. I even decorated Vince's nursery with some Peter Rabbit things when he was a baby. If you want a chance to win a Beatrix Potter print (or another print of your choice), click on over to my Product Review page. (click on "Product Review Page" to get there)

Cindy, I would love it if you would check out my last 2 posts, I have a Beatrix Potter theme going. Found this darling china cup by Royal Doulton at the GW and it got me to thinking about all the wonderful characters. I love my little collection of items. Blessings, Marla

I love Beatrix Potter stuff too. Each Easter my girls got a porcelain figurine in their Easter basket from the "bunny". I nearly cried when the twins married, because I graciously gave them their box of porcelains. I now only have a third and my baby daugher graduates college this May. I will have them for awhile, I can use the "you have to be married to get them".

I love Beatrix Potter too & have visited her home in Cumbria a few years back as it isn't too far away from us.
There is also an exhibition of her work on near us soon too with some rare works on show so I think I will have to be going to that too!
Love

I love Beatrix Potter too, and I decorated our daughter's nursery with Beatrix Potter fabric 22 years ago! My mother collected the figurines and gave our children one each year for Easter. I have them in a glass cabinet in my living room!

Cindy,
I love Beatrix Potter. When I graduated from college I was able to go on a hiking tour of England and I went to the Beatrix Potter Museum it was wonderful. I really enjoy your blog. Thank you for adding fun to my day.

Nice work on the sea shells.
Love Bunnies.
I just watched "Miss Potter" Wednesday night. It was the first book I bought my grandson- of course he is more interested in diggers * fire trucks.

I am such a huge fan of Beatrix Potter too, have you seen the movie with Renee Zellweger? It was so wonderful...I just love her whole life story. I also have the movies they came out with about 10-15 years ago that look exactly like her original paintings, they are truly a feast for the eyes to watch. I still watch them once in a while even though my girls are all grown.
