Beatrix Potter
~Mrs, Heelis~ as she preferred to be called~
was not only a brilliant children's
author and illustrator but a
wonderful artist !

She also owned Herdwick sheep
in the Lake District of Cumbria
(and was the first women President of the
Herdwick Sheep Breeders Association)
and bought and owned a huge amount
of land to preserve and protect against
the industrial  revolution and for the
grazing lands and farms along
with the mere beauty!
 She left it all to the National Trust  

Last year my "grafted" daughter Beth
and I went on an adventure to
celebrate Beatrix's 150 Birthday
in Brewster NY with the
Brewster Ladies and their
special guest speaker Susan Branch! 

      We packed up into the RV with all the pets!

And enjoyed a FUN adventure!!

The Brewster Library was booked
too full so they moved next door
to the Baptist Church
Downstairs of the library was a
HUGE used book sale and we were
very early so we were able to find some
wonderful bargain books!



Soon after packing our treasure books
away we walked over to the church

The ladies were busy getting refreshments ready

And ladies and
"Girl Friends" arrived 

Many ladies coveted this
beautiful National Trust scarf!!

Susan and Joe arrived and took our picture!!

and Susan tried to behave herself
but teased some with a peek at Petey!  

Betsy treated us to an 
educational slide show about
Beatrix and the Beatrix Potter Society

and then she interviewed 
Susan about her visit to Hilltop!

They showed us a lovely movie 

Susan read from her book
"A Fine Romance" the part
were she visited Hill Top

We sang Happy Birthday..

and the ladies blew out the candles!

After a lovely time talking about Beatrix
we all had a chance to meet Susan and Joe

and Joe was so kind to sign
 my cook book by him!

 Susan greeted and signed books
and talked with hundreds of ladies 
and still had a personal bright smile
for everybody! 

and had GREAT SHOES!!

 I was thrilled to share a
photo of Mommy 93 ignoring
me while she read Susan's book!

and she sent a note to Mommy

 Mommy ignoring me!!

 It was so fun to gather with friends
and also meet new ones!


Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.
