Happy Belated Birthday Beatrix!

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.

God bless,
Sarah Grace
