    I love Beatrix Potter, especially Mrs Tiggywinkle and The Tale of Two Bad Mice.

    I think children and adults will be enjoying her work hundreds of years from now. It’s ageless. 🙂

      Agreed, D! And though bittersweet, Beatrix Potter’s life story is also quite interesting.

      Enjoy the weekend! 😉
