On Thursday, July 28th, 1866 Helen Beatrix Potter Heelis was born. It is hard to believe that it has been 145 years since my eternally favourite authoress/ illustrator was born. With her imagination for such loveable & memorable characters & her breathtakingly beautiful illustrations, it is hard not to get lost in the world of Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, or Jemima Puddleduck. Her tales draw the reader into a time long since past, with such animation of idea, that one becomes a part in her world. I long to be even half as accomplished as Beatrix in the arts of pen & drawing. Happy 145th Birthday Beatrix, may your tales continue to be beloved by the generations to come.
