I love the tales told by Beatrix Potter. The books are tiny enough for little ones to hold, the illustrations amazingly gorgeous, and the stories unforgettable. And every child can relate to the curious and naughty Peter Rabbit, who gets himself into a great deal of trouble when he does not heed his mother's warning and goes into Mr. MacGregor's garden. He eventually makes his way back home and his mother tenderly takes care of him and tucks him into bed.
These plates hang on my kitchen wall year round but I thought it very appropriate to share them with you at Easter. They remind me of many lovely afternoons when my children would sit at the kitchen table to have tea and cookies with mommy. And they also remind me what our Easter celebration is really about: Forgiveness from someone who loves us very much and a chance to start anew.
