Celebrate Spring with Beatrix Potter

Here are a few of my Beatrix Potter figures and music boxes I have collected over the years. Some were gifts from my sister and ornaments from my mother-in-law. I love to set a table or vignette using them for Spring and Easter. 

These little characters make me so happy! Guaranteed to bring a smile.

This sweet book of Inspirational Thoughts and Quotes by Susan Branch
works beautifully with this happy vignette.
A gift from my dear friend Sarah @ Hyacinth's for the Soul.

After enjoying some of my collection for the vignette I moved some pieces to the back foyer. 

To greet all visitors and will 
always bring a smile!

Thank you for your visit, I hope you will leave a comment so I know you stopped in.

Happy Spring!


  1. Juar lovely....I love the Beatrix Potter books and I plan to take the grands to the new movie coming out.

  2. Oh Emily how utterly adorable!! It's all too cute for words! The doll house is amazing, and so many cute figurines! I love how you've tucked some into the pots and the vignette on the baker's rack is fantastic! I would stand there just looking at it for days! You have been having a lot of fun! The books and that teapot, just beautiful! Happy Spring!

  3. Yes, every picture makes me smile. Adorable and so much fun. Your hutch is awesome! You have started my day in a happy mood.
    Happy Spring. The azaleas have popped open, the dogwoods are blooming as is the bridal wreath. I love springtime.

  4. Emily, my son's nursery was ALL Beatrice Potter and I was totally obsessed when my kids were babies. LOVE your collection! Happy Spring!

  5. Oh Emily, can you hear me squeal with delight all the way from Michigan? I am! Big huge squealy joyful sounds. I love Beatrix P., her art, her stories, her characters. Everything. I wish I was going to Susan Branch's BP tea at Hill Top in May. Alas. But in spirit I will be there. I think you already are there with all your sweet figures and wonderful dishes. Big smiles here!

  6. That's a village, Emily! So precious. I love how you've brought them all out to play. My time is stretched between decorating my house and styling our booths, so the house doesn't get as many changes. I really love to sit among seasonal decor though. It really lifts the spirits.
    Happy Spring, my friend!

  7. Oh Emily, your post couldn't be any sweeter with your welcome to spring and all of your darling Beatrix Potter figures and music box. What a special collection with pieces received as gifts from your sister and mother-in-law. They know exactly what you love and treasure. The plates and cups by Wedgewood are so darling too. The teapots and house are just too cute and your breadrack is just perfect. What a collection, love it all!

Thanks for your visit yesteday--my sweet granddaughter is almost 17 and an old "soul" at heart. Very committed to being a valuable person in life--wants to be a pediatrician-she's a violinist and I know she will be careful with her new car!!
