Friday's Fabulous Woman: Beatrix Potter

My recent wanderings through the English countryside, got me thinking about the fantasy world created by Beatrix Potter and her wonderful books that had a home on my bookshelf years ago.  Born in 1866, she published The Tale of Peter Rabbit in her thirties.  She went on to become a full time illustrator and storyteller gaining financial independence from her parents and earning millions of fans around the world.

I´m very fascinated by Beatrix Potter. Considering what she did and in what era.
I did enjoy the film too, thought it was quite too sweet for my taste. But never the less, I enjoyed it.
