🐇 Beatrix Potter is mostly known for her children's books with beautifully illustrated characters like Peter Rabbit; but did you know she was a respected naturalist, mycologist and conservationist first? Her inspiration for Peter Rabbit actually came from her time spent outdoors and in nature. With all this occuring over 100 years ago, she was ahead of her time as a woman in science. ⚛
I captured this photo today at my favorite nature sanctuary (also where I work - I am biased and proud) to honor her birthday and pay tribute to my favorite cottontail. 🐰
Regrann from @quotabelle - “Believe there is a great power silently working all things for good, behave yourself, and never mind the rest.”
~ Beatrix Potter
Love these words by the illustrator / author who dreamed up the stories of mischievous Peter Rabbit and his smartly dressed farm friends. Sweet reminder to put trust in something bigger & be guided by beliefs.

Los bordados Quaker son mi pasión .(Creo que lo vais viendo 😂).
Este "Quaker sampler" tan bello fue hecho en su día por la maravillosa autora Beatrix Potter (seguro que la conocéis por las ilustraciones tan lindas de niños ).
Me aseguré de teñir la tela acorde al bordado original .
¡Y el resultado me encantó!☺

Beautiful handmade book by Jo.
Beautiful pink vintage decorative book bundle:
Fickle Barbara (1993, First Edition)
When We Were Very Young (1988)
Two Stories About Wendy (1965)
Peter Rabbit & Benjamin Bunny: Trapped By A Cat! (1983).
Fickle Barbara is a story about Ballerina Bear Barbara who lives in a child’s room and decides she would like to get to know some of the other toys, a sweet tale with an important lesson about friendship reminiscent of The Velveteen Rabbit and illustrations that are absolutely beautiful. Dust cover is in tact with some slight creasing to the edges, and a name is written in the front of the book, otherwise in excellent condition.
When We Were Very Young is a collection of poems by A. A. Milne that was originally written in 1924. The verses are matched with the whimsical illustrations of Ernest H. Shepherd in which the very first appearance of Winnie-the-Pooh can be seen! The book has original dust jacket which has a small tear and bend at the back. It looks as though something has dented half some page-tops in the book resulting in some creases and small tears to the top of the pages in the last half of the book (see pictures) but every page is still entirely readable and there is no other markings or writing to mention.
Two Stories About Wendy is a beautiful Whitman Tell-A-Tale book, and tells two stories about a little girl and her puppy. I love everything about this book from the beautifully designed cover and front pages to the darling illustrations inside. The sweetest little book you ever did see!! Some slight wear to the front cover and binding but the inside pages are in great condition with no markings or writing.
Peter Rabbit & Benjamin Bunny: Trapped By A Cat! is a very tiny but very cute little board book that is perfect for little hands. This is a portion of the classic story by Beatrix Potter and includes the illustrations that we all know and love! .
$25 for the complete bundle plus shipping. Claim below with your comment (sold, me, mine) and DM with venmo handle or email.
