IA Weekly Challenge: Nursery Rhymes

My favorite nursery stories were always the Beatrix Potter books.  Each book tells the story of a different animal, each with their own unique personalities and adventures.

This canvas growth chart combines some of my very favorite characters;

Squirrel Nutkin

Peter Rabbit
Jamima Puddleduck

Jeramy Fisher

 This particular chart was a custom order.  If you'd like one of your own, or if you have another idea for a custom canvas growth chart, then drop me a comment or visit my Etsy shop;
