Modern Makeover #110: Beatrix Potter
Aug 18, 2012
Wow, this is a really interesting challenge! I've always loved Beatrix Potter, she was one of my favorite authors when I was a kid. So I decided to do this Victorian-inspired look in her honor! It's very sweet and simple, with a certain rustic charm -- just like something Beatrix herself might have worn!
Hope you like it! :)

Royal Albert Teapot: Here's bone china with a difference - the most successful tableware pattern in the world. It's something that's suited different lifestyles for decades past, and should do for decades to come. Try it...the haze of summertime...the sight of roses in full bloom...Harold Holdcroft captured it all in 1962 with Old Country Roses. Thats why Royal Albert's range of traditional tableware, with its familiar Montrose shaping, rose motif, and hand crafted gold edging, is something very special. This 42-oz. Teapot is quintessential English class in formal dinnerware and makes a lovely addition to any tea-service set. For almost 200 years, The Royal Doulton Company has specialized in fine bone china and porcelain for the table and collectibles. Royal Doulton enjoys the distinction of a "Royal Warrant", a designation bestowed upon people or companies who regularly supply members of the Royal Family with goods or services. It is regarded as a mark of supreme excellence and quality. King Edward awarded the first of five Royal Warrants to the Doulton Company, which then became The Royal Doulton Company.
