Today in 1866 Helen Beatrix Potter was born. She lived to be 77 years old.
This little rabbit made her famous with The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
“I don’t know what to write to you, so I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits whose names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter….”
“And that – a letter to a small boy called Noel- was the beginning of the Beatrix Potter Books.”
I started my Beatrix Potter Collection in the summer of 1973 while touring England. I bought the Biography The Tale of Beatrix Potter by Margaret Lane in Oxford July of 1974.
Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site and have replaced my photos with black and grey boxes of ugliness. I’m slowly deleting those boxes from my blog and trying to update so many posts, very frustrating.
