happy {150th} birthday, Beatrix!

Our much beloved Beatrix Potter was born 150 years ago today!

I thought it was a perfect occasion to wear another outfit inspired by my favorite artist.

My niece Abbey snapped a couple pics for me. ^_^

Abbey, my sister Kelsey, and I thought we'd try our hand at some watercolor in honor of Miss Potter.

{'Arteests' at work.}
It was so much fun!
{A cup of tea was always nearby, naturally.}
The finished "masterpieces". ;P
Try not to laugh too hard at my rendition of Hunca Munca & one of her babies.
{I really need to work on those eyes. Spooooky.}
Kels decided to just do her own non-Beatrix-inspired thing.
I'm in love with Abbey's rendition of Jemima Puddle Duck!
"Thank goodness I was never sent to school;
it would have rubbed off some of the originality."

Did you know today was Beatrix's birthday?

Did you do anything special to celebrate?

What is your favorite Beatrix Potter book?

Miss Michelle ^_^


  1. Wow, so cute! Wouldn't Miss Potter be amazed to know people still think about her on her 150th birthday! ♡♡♡♡

  2. NO, I didn't know that yesterday was Beatrix Potter's birthday. What a fun way to celebrate! I love her artwork, growing up her books were some of my favorites. : )

  3. well aren't you darling in every way. :)
    mrsTiggywinkle is my very favorite Potter
    character. maybe because i look like her
    (wink) or have in my possession **many**
    pocket handkins.

    i was going to watch Miss Potter but accidentally took a nap instead.. :/

    1. Aww shucks. Thanks... ^_~ Oh, I love Mrs. Tiggywinkle too. I imagine I'll look more & more like her the older I get. ;) I didn't get around to everything I intended to that day either. A nap would have been wonderful.

  4. Nice artwork and cute skirt! I'm a Potter fan. Our youngest granddaughter's nursery is done in "Potter-original". :-) Cute post! ♥

    1. Thanks Anne! I got this skirt at my favorite thrift store. It's rayon & oh so comfortable. If the Lord ever gives me babies there will be a definite Beatrix theme in their nursery! ^_^

  5. Simply delightful, my friend! You look simply lovely with your hair up and I especially like your sweet skirt.

    You celebrated in a most wonderful and charming way. Hugs to you!

    1. Thank you, Stephanie! It's one of my favorite quick & easy hairstyles to do & it's so much cooler to have your hair up in this summertime heat! My skirt was a thrift store find & I just adore it. I love the muted tones. {hugs!}
