Jane in the Kitchen



Wood Stove

Bread is rising, stew is being started, and the cats are as close to the woodstove as they can get without getting singed! Jane rarely gets sick, luckily for the Quimper Hittys that like to eat!


Perdita Rocks




Perdita is one of my more pensive Hittys – she likes to spend time by herself in her beautiful Albert Nadeau rocking chair…


Viola’s Button Bed



Button Bed

One of the workshops I attended when I was in the Ozarks taught us how to make a doll’s bed by stringing buttons on wire.


Magic Flute


A dreadful lurgy did not prevent us from listening to CBC Saturday Afternoon at the Opera,  which featured one of our favourite operas – Mozart’s Magic Flute.   




Viola Reads



Big and small

When I was in the Ozarks, I bought a little tiny version of a book called Diary of a Birthday Doll. The Hittys always appreciate it when I get them books they can actually read, and this was a book I already had in my bookshelf in human scale!





Yellow Violet

Constance brought home a sweet little sister from her trip to the Ozarks. Her name is Viola, because she has a Downy Wood Violet in her hair…


November 5



Tuesday prefers bare feet, but in early November she decided the weather was finally cold enough to put on socks and slippers…


November 4


In early November Arianell is playing with the cats…
