🎶 White Rabbit - Egypt Central
And I needed these sticky notes... No, I even have enough of them. 🙈
My sister sent me this cute noveltea for my birthday. It all smells so good and the labels with tea scenes are precious.
After walking though Beatrix Potter‘s summer veggie garden at the weekend, when she imagined and sat to illustrate Peter Rabbit I was feeling all nostalgic. I had the long boxed set of all these little books when I was young. 😍
Today I went to the beautiful Lingholm Estate, a place that Beatrix Potter spent many of her holidays, and inspired the setting of The Tale of Peter Rabbit! I walked this awesome alpaca (called Theo!) around the grounds and even had a paddle in Derwent Water! 😊#alpacalyeverafter #keswick2018
A baby bunny has moved into our back patio. My son has named him Furry. He's pretty cute. I think he appreciates my poor gardening skills. Lots of weeds to feed on!
This is the last #easterbasketbookswap post, I promise! 😉 Just a little snapshot from the box I sent. Tidings from Moxie, of course, who acts as my emissary in all things Easter. 🐰🌷
All the loot!
@nestlera you absolutely killed it! I feel so (wonderfully) spoiled.💞 Not only did you put a ton of care into making everything fun to open (the wrapping, the individualized notes for each item) but you also took the time to learn about who I am, not just as a reader but as a person. I‘m genuinely touched. I‘m honored to be your first swap partner.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! 🐰🌷
And thank you to @JoeStalksBeck for hosting!
Holding up my #easterbasketbookswap like it‘s Simba (in front of the post office‘s graffitied mural). @nestlera , everything the light touches is yours! It should arrive by Thursday. 🙌🏻
Funny story: there‘s a tiny card inside that I intended to fill out... except I taped everything all up & realized I‘d forgotten about it entirely. 🙄 Soooo, feel free to re-card. 😅
Don‘t forget Easter basket gifts! I always loved getting a book in my basket. Buy any two bookmarks before Easter and automatically receive a free gift. Recommended for children 6 and up. https://www.etsy.com/shop/Bookartbookmarks
I just joined an #easterbasketbookswap hosted by @JoeStalksBeck 🤗🐇🌷! Tomorrow (2/20) is the last day to sign-up!
As someone with a pet rabbit, & as a serious winter-hater, Easter/Ostara‘s a pretty big deal in our household. I‘m amped. 🙌🏻
@Clwojick is rereading a bunch of Beatrix Potter‘s books for the #ThrowbackReadathon. I mentioned that I‘ve actually contemplated getting a tattoo of one of her botanical drawings - maybe on the top of my foot. Here‘s a photo! It‘d be a super-subtle nod to my pet rabbit (without actually being a rabbit at all 😉).
This isn‘t book-related but it‘s too crazy not to share. If you know me, even over the Internet 😉, you know I‘m gaga over bunnies (thanks to my li‘l bb Moxie Crimefighter). Last night, some friends & I went out for hot dogs & mine came with a bun! Talking with our server, it somehow came to light that he had a pet rabbit & that it was waiting in his truck for his shift to end. Whaaat?! Meet Penny & Vinny! He said his bun “taught him how to love.”
Outside a lovely bookshop in Glossop, Peak District. ☺️
Trying to decide which way to go...
What's your favourite childhood book?
I was always fond of the archaic and genteel humanisation of the animals in the Peter Rabbit series.
You can't beat a fox in a waistcoat 👌🏻
Beatrix potter and all her well mannered animals in waistcoats, stealing cabbages and punting about woodland rivers on boats, made up a great deal of my childhood. I still find the stories timeless and charming
When asked to name formative children's books. My own childhood seems to have been filled with very polite and well spoken animals in waistcoats getting into adventures in very English forests. Fantastic Mr Fox, Mrs Frizby, Winnie the Pooh and Wind in the Willows. The earliest I recall however, is the stories of Peter Rabbit and his friends, forever avoiding being baked in a pie by evil Farmer McGregor.
#riotgrams #authorwhosharesmyname Oops totally spaced on yesterday's challenge so here it goes a little late! I figured the obvious character with my name is Helen of Troy and so I decided to go with author - Helen Beatrix Potter! Even though I grew up with her book and love them I only very recently discovered her name was Helen 😂 I'd always just heard Beatrix Potter! Anyways her books are such charming children's stories I had to choose her!
I am going to be on stage tomorrow for the first time in almost a decade, so I'm posting a photo of me in my theatrical debut for #tbt. Here I am as Mrs. Rabbit in my first grade production of The Peter Rabbit Operetta. I had strep, but I went on anyway and crushed it (or so my mom still tells people).
I am so happy to be back in this world & excited for my UCB Improv 101 show. #throwbackthursday
(NYC Littens, let me know if you want to come!)
