  1. I’ve never seen little wooden tiles. What an undertaking just sorting them. You find the most unusual and amazing goodies. Love the sea shells (oyster?) used for claw foot holders on the bathtub. So clever…and that “for ladies only” toilet was a riot…but when I spied that wee toilet plunger, I lost it altogether. So fun!!!

    • We found the little tub of them at Value Village, probably 20 years ago, along with some other wooden pieces and shapes made in Finland. One of those things I knew would be useful some day, along with the bathroom accoutrements! All we needed was the actual bathroom, which a certain photographer has promised to help me make – stay tuned. It might take some time…but we have a bit of time at the moment!

  2. I totally agree with Mary Anne….that bathroom will look truly unique once the Hittys start gluing tiles here and there. That will be a very pretty narrative I’m sure! I surely admire your endless creativity.

    • We will see how it all goes – I think the tiles will end up on the floor, and maybe some near the top of the walls – I just have to do some mock-ups and see what ends up looking nice. The Hittys just want me to get going on the project so they aren’t forced to use the outhouse for too long.

  3. You and your wonderful Hitty family are so creative and industrious! Your Quimper Hitty adventures always bring a smile and thank you for that. Can’t wait to see how you re-purpose those lovely tiles!

    • Thanks very much – we certainly try to have fun, and never seem to run out of things to create for the Hittys! I think we will be amused with the project, and with any luck we will end up with a nice “smallest room” in the Hitty cupboard!

    • I have no idea what they little tiles were intended for – the larger wood scrap pieces had a label reading: Lastu Hobby Savonlinna – Finland. We were happy to collect them!
