Lost in a Good Book
The Hittys use various ways to deal with distressing news “outside the cupboard”…
…Viola is re-reading a favourite book…
…sinking into the comforting and familiar words…
…how wonderful to live in another place and time for a while.
Lovely candlelight and shadows. Thank you so much for sharing a peaceful and comforting activity.
You are welcome! We were lucky to catch the light at just the right moment!
Just viewing Viola is peaceful and beautiful. She has a calming presence…Her origin tree must have been a true gentle giant.
Viola is a peaceful and beautiful personality, I agree her original tree must have imbued her with gentleness and grace…and her carvers made it visible…I am lucky to have her in the Hitty cupboard.
Hahaha! Your Hittys read Pride and Prejudice and mine just ordered Peter Rabbit and Two Bad Mice. What have I done wrong?!
Gilly’s favourite book is Two Bad Mice! Some of the Hittys read books for the fun and the pictures, instead of for escape!
Viola is a lovely dear and I would like to see more of her. When I see her it makes me smile.
We think Viola is a lovely dear too, but she is shy and retiring, and does not want to be on display very often!
Lovely way to center oneself . A peaceful retreat from the “real” world is quite welcome. The Country Hittys have been taking walks in the fields and also reading quite a bit. Today I have promised to sew for them.
What fun to go on walks in the fields, I bet they enjoyed looking for signs of spring, and listening to the birds…I am sure they are happy with your sewing projects, Hittys are so appreciative!
Beautiful photography creating the tranquil peace and contentment we all need, and so benefit from, form you – thank you.
You are very welcome. I am always happy to spend a little time in the Hitty cupboard, I almost always end up more positive!
There is great solace in a well loved book!
