Beatrix Potter books

Finding these three little books for $6.00 at a childrens' used toy shop made my day today. Not only were they cheap but they are in perfect condition.

Who does not love Beatrix Potter illustrations?

There was even a story on Kep, the collie-dog.
The illustrations are just delightful.

Even Audrey was intrigued with my purchase today.

 So I thought, anyway . She really just wanted to snooze on the bag in the sunshine.

The weather is fine. We are having a January thaw. The sun is shining and all is right with Sierra's world.
I'm joining Show and Tell Friday at

  1. I love Beatrix Potter! In college, I wrote a children's musical that was done as a puppet show based on some of her stories and characters. I think that Audrey and Sierra are just gorgeous as well, and our 3 kitties send best wishes :)

  2. I too love Beatrix Potter. My girls nursery was done in Peter Rabbit. Her illustrations are just wonderful to look at even when you are all grown up!

  3. My mom love Beatrix Potter too ! Classic and Cute Ever !
    Anyway, What's in da bag, I wonder ?...Treats ?...tee..heh..heh

  5. I love those little books -- the illustrations are so divine. I have a few copies and I think every now and then that I don't need to keep them -- I should pass them on and then I open them up. Nope. They are staying with me! Hugs!

  6. I love Potter's illustrations =)
    Enjoy that sunbeam, Audrey!

  10. What a beautiful photo of Sierra! Such a sweet girl.

    The books were an amazing find! Now you have to collect the lovely, amazingly true to original illustration, English china figurines. I got one in a Goodwill shop for 1.99$. What luck!

  11. Hi Deb,
    Love Beatrix Potter's book and art work, so wonderful. I just found
    4 of those at Target in the $1.00 aisle, go got them to put up for my lil grandaughter that is coming in March. They are not anywhere near as put together as yours tho. You made a great haul.
    Have you ever seen the movie Miss Potter, if not, it is a must see
    you will love it. When we got it we didn't even know it was about her life but really enjoyed it so much. She had some sad things happen, but what a neat lady.

    Nice to meet you here in blogland and thanks for your visit for
    blissful white Wed., it was appreciated.........I love white dishes for the same reason.
    blessings, Nellie

Love the photos of your darling Audrey and Sierra taking a bit of sun.
