"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Happy Birthday Beatrix Potter!

Sit your little ones around the computer today and click to play some delightful games in her honor. When you are done, brew a good cup of tea and spend a little time poking around the site and get to know the real Beatrix Potter. Need a good Summer movie? Do buy a copy of the 2006 Miss Potter movie starring Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor (It is listed in my ever-changing favorite things list on the left side of this blog.) It is, well, magic!

I thought I'd add a link to a wonderful archived post from Clarice's lovely Storybook Woods blog for you to read to further celebrate the day. It is by guest blogger Susan Wittig Albert. Enjoy! -CS ^..^
