Beatrix Potter map

A light hearted blog -One visit that I couldn't resist one summer was a trip to see Hill Top, Near Sawrey, the home of Beatrix Potter. A lovely illustrator and  artist Gretel Parker had accidentally let slip that she had nicknamed me Mrs Tiggy Winkle !

Mrs Tiggy Winkle Click to watch film...I always think it's rather nice to do a little dance up the garden path...If everyone did we would all have a good reason to smile !

 I was quite happy with this I always remember her in the film/ballet bumbling over the fields....yes I'm very happy to have that nickname.

Hill Top

Some of the buildings in the village were illustrated by her in her stories.

I wish that I had spent more time drawing...I was certainly inspired.....This year I created my Beatrix Potter town map with all our favourite faces.
