Out of Season

Gift

A Hitty friend visited last week for an outdoor socially distanced cup of tea – thank goodness the weather cooperated! Our friend brought us a fancy kitchen ornament for the Hitty cupboard…

Christmas!

..we all love the cute design, and the ideas it evokes of cosy kitchens and good smells…

.

.

Cookies

…it certainly put Constance in the mood to review some of our favourite Christmas Cooky recipes…

Apron

…and coincidentally, I made a new seasonal apron which she tried on for size!

A funny time to be thinking of Christmas, but oh well!

  1. I love the quiet and cozy of Constance in a place of reflection and tea. Your Hitty friend chose a very pretty item for the kitchen. I’m so glad you had a chance to visit together.

    • I love it too – when I feel stressed, I just go have a cup of tea with Constance. She is very companionable! My Hitty friend is the one who took Tansy to China in 2014 – I think I have almost persuaded her to carve her own Hitty now she is about to retire!

  2. Oooh, a teeny weeny Christmas cookie roller! How gorgeous! It reminds me that my mother had a carved wooden mould of Sinterklaas for big Christmas speculaas bickies. I have no idea where it went when the family home was sold… Sad.

    • Oh, I am sorry the Sinterklaas cooky mould went astray…that is unfortunate. We were thrilled with this wee one – it had Constance looking up the Springerle recipe, and wondering if we have enough hartshorn to make it.

  3. How nice to have a visitor. and what a lovely gift. I have a larger one with cats etched into it! I love your tiny reindeer version. The new holiday apron is delightful. Love the combination trim of rick rack and lace.
