Beatrix Potter Buttons

Beatrix Potter was a lonely girl living in a quiet townhouse in London in the late 1800's. Her father was a prosperous lawyer and he and his wife were caught up in the hectic social life of Victorian London. Beatrix was their oldest child and kept herself entertained by reading, drawing pictures, and making up stories.
The family spent every summer in the country, so Beatrix developed an early interest in nature and woodland creatures. She and her younger brother often kept pets and often spent hours observing and drawing pictures of their animal friends. Beatrix was encouraged in this regard by her parents and soon became an accomplished illustrator.
As a young woman, Beatrix began writing illustrated letters to amuse the children of her friends. Thus were born Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter along with a host of other endearing characters which has become part of one of the most popular children's storybook series in the world.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first published in 1900 and has since been translated into fifteen languages.
In recent years, the endearing characters have been popular choices on BUTTONS and bring to mind many memories of our own childhood.
The B.Potter buttons I am showing here are plastic and available in the plastic category @Pegs Buttons

  4. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own
    blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
