Once upon a time, there were four little Rabbits, and their names were — Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter. They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big tree.
Oh Ms. Beatrix Potter. So talented, yet she was quoted as saying, "I must draw, however poor the result....I will do something sooner or later." Can you believe she would say those words?
There is something so tender, comforting and appealing about Ms Beatrix's art...
I attempted to draw little Peter Rabbit on a dictionary page. I say 'attempted' as Ms. Beatrix Potter's art cannot be duplicated....
But I wanted to
try draw him for a dear friend who loves books and little Peter Rabbit has a special place in her heart...
So I will be sending her this little gift just in time for Easter, and I hope she likes it....
My mother-in-law gave Bella the entire set of Beatrix Potter books. She had come across them one day at a garage sale and all of the books were there except the Tale of Peter Rabbit. :( (I don't blame them for keeping it.)
Do you know the story of Peter Rabbit? It's here if would like to read it.
Do you have a favourite childhood story? My favourite is Hansel and Gretel. I remember my brother and I asking our dad to read us that story over and over again, but instead of Hansel and Gretel, he would replace their names with ours. I was always so happy to be able to save my brother from the wicked old lady. How precious to have those memories in my heart and be able to reminisce about my childhood.
Thank you so much for sharing a little bit of time with me. I never get tired of having you here.
Sending you warm hugs,Lucy
