Blue Monday ~ Beatrix Potter

 

I never get tired of sharing my sweet Beatrix Potter collection and I hope you aren’t tired of seeing them. These are the animals in my collection that have a lot of blue on them. I started my collection in 1973 when I was in England and added to them over a few years.

For more Blue or to join in the fun visit Sally our kind hostess here.

Today is a travel day for me so if I don’t get by today I’ll swing by tomorrow to see your blue.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I posted on my blog from 2007-2015 hostage and replaced them with big black and grey boxes with threats. So discouraging…as I’m slowly trying to clean up thousands of posts!

Fall Into Reading ~ 2008

It’s time to join Katrina at Callapidder Days for another round of Reading Fun starting September 22 and going till December 20th.

 

Fall is filling up with obligations on my part so I’m only going to put a few books on my Fall reading list. I’ll be reading my Bible on my quest to read every book of the Bible several times in a month before I move on to the next. I’m in the book of Mark right now. So here are the other books on my list.

Beatrix Potter -A Life of Nature ~ by Linda Lear

Father Brown Crime Stories ~ by G.K. Chesterton

Transforming Grace ~ by Jerry Bridges

The Heart of the Family ~ by Elizabeth Goudge

Green Dolphin Street ~ by Elizabeth Goudge

I might even re-read The Wind in the Willows

Happy Tea and Reading Weather to one and all. Enjoy…

Pink Saturday ~ Beatrix Potter

For my third Pink Saturday I’m combining Pink with my love of all things Beatrix Potter. I started my collection of Beatrix Potter figurines in 1973 while in England. I’ve picked out 3 of my 27 figurines. These three have pink on them and I am sharing the book they come from and an excerpt from the book.

The first figurine is of “Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail” from The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

 

 

Next is “Hunca Munca” from The Tale of Two Bad Mice

 

 

The third figurine I’m sharing is “Goody Tiptoes” from The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes

 

 

Happy Pink Saturday everyone. Hope you enjoyed a little of my Beatrix Potter Collection. To see more Pink Saturday Posts visit our gracious hostess Beverly at How Sweet the Sound

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.

The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter

 

I’ve really been enjoying this series by mystery writer Susan Wittig Albert. Beatrix Potter has been a favorite of mine for years and escaping into the Lake District with Beatrix and talking animals and mystery is a joy for me. I’ve finished the first two books in the series. Right now there are two more books already published.

 

I found the first book in the series at the Friend’s of the Library for 50 cents. I checked out the second book from the library. I’m going to have to request or get on a waiting list for the next ones, The Tale of Cuckoo Brow Wood and The Tale of Hawthorn House. If you like English village life, a blend of fact and fiction, and mystery, not to mention great animal characters you’ll love this series…

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!
