Beatrix Potter's, The Tailor of Gloucester
 
Oh indeed!!  I know they mentioned it over on the blog the day they put up the challenge, but yes, as a child I too was drawn into many Beatrix Potter stories by her amazing artwork.
 
I believe she is the reason I am not afraid of mice and think they are beyond cute and believe that all animals in the forest have the coolest of little homes tucked away in a tree somewhere! 
 
Here's  my (late to the party today) post for the
 
The minute I saw the picture, I could think of nothing else but pink ribbon and cord with some wood beads, rose quartz and of course, pearls.
 
 
 
 
I hope you'll take a moment to check out all the other participants from the "We're All Ears" monthly challenge and see their lovely pieces created with the inspiring artwork of  Beatrix Potter's, The Tailor of Gloucester's picture.
 
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Childhood Memories!
Cheers,

  13. I loved your comment about mice! :) Using the wood bead was a great interpretation of the "woods" in the illustration. Why didn't I think of that??? Your colors are gorgeous, and I love the pink ribbon.
