Today, July 28, 2016 finds celebrations underway with Beatrix Potter 150th Anniversary Special Stamps over at the Royal Mail.
I’ve also included a free five-page download Beatrix Potter 150th Birthday card from the Beatrix Potter website, a newly just posted YouTube by Lindeth Howe, and an article at The Guardian on Beatrix Potter 150th which includes a image of a “Letter from Beatrix Potter to William Thiselton-Dyer, 3 December 1896.”

The BEATRIX POTTER™ Special Stamps has 22 limited edition souvenirs and gifts.

Lindeth Howe YouTube Celebrating Beatrix Potter 150th
The YouTube posted by Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel of the July 21st Film Premiere of Celebrating Beatrix Potter. “The house was once owned by Beatrix Potter, who illustrated Timmy Tiptoes and Pigling Bland here, and our logo is actually in her handwriting!” Check out their blog post on Beatrix Potter 150 Events.
The Guardian article celebrating 150 years of Beatrix Potter
The Guardian has a well written article- Let’s celebrate 150 years of Beatrix Potter: author, scientist and fungus-lover. Written yesterday, it begins with –
“Tomorrow marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of revered children’s author and illustrator, Beatrix Potter, celebrated worldwide for such beloved literary characters as Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-duck. In this celebration of her literary and artistic legacy, it is easy to forget she was a keen natural scientist.”
The article includes a image of a “Letter from Beatrix Potter to William Thiselton-Dyer, 3 December 1896.”
As we wrap up today’s fun blog post on Beatrix Potter 150th Anniversary Special Stamps I’m definitely ordering some of these Special Stamps items – especially the BEATRIX POTTER™ Postcards (11 in a set)! Be warned one can easily get lost amid these sites exploring!
