Beatrix Potter -- 142 year Anniversary

On July 28, 1866 -- Helen Beatrix Potter was born in South Kensington, Middlesex, England -- this July 28 will be the 142nd anniversary of her birth.

Just for fun -- sharing all things Beatrix Potter... A few things from my collection. But I particularly like the quilt that we finished a few months ago.
And I'm trying to think of an event I could host (charity or otherwise) to use the 45 Peter Rabbit teacups that I have. Any ideas!

(whose third son was born on July 28, and who was named Thomas in honor of "Tom Kitten" -- although my husband thinks Tom was named in honor of his great grandfather. )
