A Tribute to a Dear Hitty Friend Caro of Wren Cottage Dolls

We at Rose Cottage are very saddened to hear of the loss of our dear friend Caro from Wren Cottage Dolls.  We first met online through the wonderful Hitty Girls group and being paired for the 'Fussy Cut Pillow Swap'.  We then started chatting on the phone and hit it off immediately.  I have since learned that Caro had that ability with everyone, to put them at ease, and make friends with them - she was always interested to hear what you had to say and had such enthusiasm and love for so many things.  

We first met up in person in Brighton for the 'Inaugural Meeting of the UK Hitty Girls in Brighton and we had a simply fantastic, if not rather exhausting time.

The last time we met up was in November last year when she drove down to spend an afternoon with us all at Rose Cottage where the UK Hitty Girls Contingent held a Thanksgiving Dinner.  

We tried to meet up again, but distance and my inability to drive too far seemed to hamper these attempts and sadly that never happened.  Perhaps more effort should have been made.  I guess although I knew her cancer was terminal, I never really expected the inevitable as Caro was always such a positive person and I thought her interminable spirit would be able to continue to fight it. She was always concerned about how others were feeling.  You touched many hearts Caro and you will be sadly missed by all those who had the pleasure to meet you both in person and online.

Our thoughts go out to your family and friends.


  1. Thank you for posting about your friendship with Caro. How very blessed you are to have had the opportunity to play with her - I am sure she felt equally blessed. Our little Hitty-world is full of dear friends!

  2. Thank you for posting this lovely tribute. Caro was an amazing person.

  3. Caro was a bright spark and generous with her friendship and ideas and energy - I was so sad to hear she had died, thank you so much for the pretty Rose in memory of the bubbling Wren,

  4. A beautiful tribute to your friend...
