I am continuing on my cupboard cleaning and organizing binge. Look what I found in the
old attic chest. Our daughter's Beatrix Pottery dishes. I studied the detailed pictures on
each and every piece, and found it most interesting.
Beatrix Potter was born on July 28, 1866.
She wrote and illustrated more than 20 children's books,
starring Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck,
and Benjamin Bunny.
Each piece of this English fine bone china, tells a story.
Treasures of Home
"With Pomp, Power & Glory the world beckons vainly,
In chase of such vanities why should I roam?
With Peace & Content bless my little thatched cottage,
And warm my own hearth with the Treasures of Home."
Speaking of "peace, content, and a warm hearth, "...this scene depicts it all perfectly.
I got to spend some time with my nephew, his wife, and their dear little daughter on
Saturday afternoon. The scene I found in the early afternoon at the farm, and it
warmed my heart.
We are still waiting for the arrival of our grandson.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I wish you, your own "thatched cottage" to return home to today.
