Illustration for article titled Cute Overload

A "mystery" watercolor painting by Beatrix Potter, the author and illustrator of the Peter Rabbit series, is expected to fetch £15,000 in an auction next month. The painting depicts a rabbit with a pink ribbon tied around its neck daintily sipping tea. The painting has become a "mystery" for experts because the subject never appeared in any of Potter's books and the painting was never reproduced in one of her books. [Daily Express]

I had a Beatrix Potter dish set as a baby, which is still one of my most prized possessions. Unfortunately I don't think it's worth 15,000 pounds.
