Hitty Madge Explores

Hitty Madge enjoyed exploring her new surroundings during a walk yesterday afternoon.

She delighted in the primroses

Admired the twisting and turning of branches

and especially enjoyed sitting on a rock

looking out to sea.

Hitty's 200th Birthday Party

Today is the day the Hittys around the world celebrate the original Hitty's 200th Birthday.

We took part in a birthday swap and are delighted to have received some wonderful gifts.

We have been very good and not opened the package until this morning.

Cute little envelope

Displaying the lovely card

The card shows our ancestor, the original Hitty.

A fabulous dress with roses on it.

Hitty Madge is hoping it will fit her.

On the table we have some treats and a pretty vase with flowers.

A lovely soft 'hugs and kisses' shrug

It fits!

Hitty Madge is delighted the dress fits her.  She has a fondness for Rose dresses and a number of years ago had a Dozen Rose Dresses (x2!) made for her for Valentines Day.

The girls are delighted to be able to take part in the World Wide Birthday Celebrations.

Showing off the dress and shrug.

The light isn't the best unfortunately.

Thank you to dear Susan for these wonderful gifts, we are so very grateful and love them all.


What we sent:

For our swap partner we sent this dress with reversible apron, and necklace.  Also sent a cup and saucer but forgot to photograph it!

New Year's Eve Swap sent

I realised I never got round to showing the Hitty New Year's Eve Swap that I made and sent.

I chose a theme of Favourite Winter Movies Party

I made a party dress, with shawl, hood in case Hitty needed to travel, a 'DVD; and a shawl for a friend.

The party dress and shawl.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of a Hitty wearing it.

Hitty Madge's Sunday Walk

Hitty Madge wore her warm winter coat to go on a walk with our person today.  It was quite grey out, but at least the rain stayed away, although it was very wet underfoot.

She was delighted to find a Hellebore in flower.

Stretching their Legs while Looking for some Colour

Hitty Morag and Hitty Madge finally managed to get out in the garden today after the busyness of Christmas and the New Year celebrations.  They went in search of some flowers...

Hitty Morag was the first to find a little purple flower, although unfortunately it hasn't shown up especially purple in the photograph.

Hitty Madge then found a purple Hebe flowering.

They were both pleased to find a flower each and also to get out in the fresh air although it was rather chilly!

An Advent Calendar Opening.

Every year for the past six or so years the 'Children (aka dolls) of Rose Cottage open an Advent Calendar.  The Hittys don't usually take part in this, but this year the three sisters wanted a turn at opening the calendar today...

Hitty Morage suggested to Hitty Mildred and Hitty Madge that they have a turn at opening the Advent Calendar today.  Of course they thought that was a great idea.

They study the Calendar and hope that today's door is not too high up as they didn't fancy having to scale heights like the babies did!

Luckily for them it wasn't and Hitty Madge is given the honours of opening the door.

It is quite a big door so they were rather excited as to what could be inside.

They were delighted to find a Reindeer - although Hitty Mildred looks like something has distracted her in the distance.

They lead the reindeer to the snowy scene and introduce the others.

The reindeer looks quite at home!
