Porch Steps

Tools

Tansy spotted some tools by the back door…

.

.

Old railing

…and a pile of wood that used to be the human’s front porch.

.

.

New deck

Apparently, the old porch was rotten, so the Hittys favourite photographer was in the process of constructing a new one…

.

.

Steps

…including a set of steps which were a little tall for little people…

.

.

Cross-cut

…so Tansy volunteered to help rectify the situation.

.

.

Sawing

She and her favourite work-mate sawed and chiseled 36 steps…

.

.

Sanding

…and cut and sanded some balusters.

.

.

Hammer

Tansy helped to put nails into the base of each post…

.

.

holes

…and drill a hole at the top end…

.

.

Wire

…and then threaded copper wires through the holes to make handrails.

.

.

Testing

She tested the stairs before inviting anyone else up!

 

 

 

 

steps!

But then the entire family arrived! Constance was first up, and Gilly scampered up after her…

.

.

Little switch

…Min ended up on Constance’s lap…

.

.

Twins

…Gilly sat with Gracia, Mary Ann found a safe spot, and the block twins scrambled up behind!

.

.

Curiosity

Siyah thought it was all very curious…

.

.

Family Portrait

…and proceeded to photo-bomb the family portrait.

.

.

exhaustion

Everyone was excited about the new stairs, and Tansy was well pleased with her carpentering efforts – but she thought the hardest work of the day was trying to point all her sisters in the same direction!

  1. I’m considering this the 8th wonder of the world! Good going Tansy and household members! Achievements come in all sizes and shapes.

  2. Favorite photographer is more than just favorite photographer…what a great guy!!!!! I am almost lost for words in describing how adorable and sweet and thoughtful favorite photographer was in creating this. This hitty staircase is gorgeous…favorite photographer didn’t skip on anything…details are all there…the Hitty’s look beyond thrilled…they are having the time of their little wooden lives going up and down that fabulous staircase.

    • I believe it will be a lovely place to sit in the afternoon, and admire the view…and it is a lovely large flat space for small dolls to play, and read, and drink tea…

    • Tansy is a great helper – so enthusiastic, and not afraid to point out possible improvements! Yay Tansy!!!
      Thanks for the good wishes, and we hope you had a lovely day as well!

  3. well I am just amazed!! What a wonderful set of photos. I LOVE that little cross cut saw. Tansy and her favorite work mate are a great team. Love the girls on the steps and Siyah !

    • We love the cross-cut saw too – it is one of our very favourite Hitty tools! Siyah loves to be part of whatever excitement is going on…she loves the new porch too!
