Charming Beatrix Potter watercolor...
This clipping is from the newspaper (Reuters) a while back. While tidying up I came across it again and taped it to the inside of the 'Peter Rabbit' book (I'll put the book cover in my sidebar). First of all I never heard of 'The Rabbits's Christmas Party' did you? It looks adorable, 'the rabbits leaving the party by candlelight'. This was sold to a private British collector for the grand sum of $578,700. There must have been stiff competition the day this was auctioned off. How glad I am, (yes, the Pollyanna type of glad...grin) that the working class, ahh, me, have copies of Miss Potter's works to enjoy and do I ever.
I don't want my blog to become political but must say I was greatly moved by John McCain's speech last night. How many Americans would say no thank you to being offered an end to torture? You have to love this man for his courage and commitment. When I think of Obama sitting under the preaching? for years of his mentor and Pastor....I see red flags waving danger.
