Happy Birthday Beatrix Potter! I just couldn't let today go by without a little post to celebrate one of my favorite children's illustrators. I have always loved Peter Rabbit and all of his friends.
I wish I had this talent to make a darling cake! So cute by Sweet Bee Bakery.
I love this photograph of Beatrix when she was a little girl, about 5 years old. And of course, I love the classic photo of Beatrix by her wonderful door! I wish I had an entrance to my home like this.
My mind has been wondering back to May when I was in Vermont and my friend Wilhelmina gave us a Peter Rabbit tea.
Even her dolls had the table set with a tiny tea set...all Peter Rabbit inspired with lots of details. Wilhelmina is such a dolly person and just gets lost in the world of dolls.
These photos are part of her collection, which is quite amazing. She was so kind to share it all with us.
Of course the visitors-Annabelle of Oregon and Annabelle of MT were invited to another tiny tea in the dining room. Note Wilhelmina's collection of Peter Rabbit books on the shelf.
How fun to have a tea to celebrate this lady's great works. Happy Birthday!
