The misadventures of Peter.....
along with Tom Kitten, Mrs. Tiggy Winkle and Squirrel Nutkin!
The creation from Beatrix Potter's
tale of her mischievous bunny and friends
we all fell in love with as children.
These are among my favorite collectibles!!

True Confession....
I have had a long time love affair with Peter Rabbit.
Each year, I add a Beatrix Potter item
to my collection.
And this year.....
it is the 
Peter Rabbit Trio of English Tea's

These little tins are absolutely darling!
Tea for morning, noon and night.

Each side of each tin reflects one of Beatrix Potter's
beloved little characters.

The Flopsy Bunnies
contains an Earl Gray Tea.
This little tiny sheep
belonged to my mother.

The Peter Rabbit tin
features an English Breakfast Tea.

The Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle tin is an
English Afternoon Tea.

There are twenty tea bags per tin.

What a sweet little addition to the items
I purchased last year.
I found these little treasures at our
Third Monday Trade Days and Home Goods.

Spring is the universal time of rebirth and renewed faith.
No matter where you rest your hat on Sunday mornings,
it's also an Easter tradition to gather together as family
for a celebratory holiday meal.
Peter Rabbit cupcakes are always featured on the sweet endings sideboard.

It had always been our tradition to
spend Easter at home in Jackson.
The children would hunt Easter eggs in Mother and Daddy's backyard
then again up at the Darling's parents.
I long for those times....

What a wonderful addition to the Easter Basket!

  11. Darling...I have some tins saved of Peter Rabbit. I wonder where they went. I have been wanting to make them into a pencil holder for the side of the fridge by gluing a magnet on the back. Seems we need a pencil holder handy the fridge. I most especially love the little sheep that belonged to your mother. It is always so charming and pretty here, Betsy.
