Tuesday's Treasures

Today's Tuesday Treasures are the wonderful works of Beatrix Potter.
I didn't read these books as a child and only really became interested in these charming stories when I was in my 20's.  Once discovered, I became captivated.  My DH bought me some little figurines, my favourites being Hunka Munka
and Diggory Diggory Delvet
A couple of years ago I received this exquisite book for Christmas.
It contains so many beautiful illustrations and photographs.  I really do treasure it.

  1. I loved the Beatrix Potter books as a child and I still own The Complete Works of Beatrix Potter :0) the illustrations are magical as well as the tales. I used to listen to them on audio tape also - happy happy memories.

  2. Lovely stories and there used to be a series of these on the ABC(?) many years ago that was quite well done and true to the books.

  6. Hi Melody,

    Loved your post today and I have the same Journal of Beatrix Potter ~ isn't it a sweet book.

    Something to enjoy forever!
