A Dark and Stormy October
It was a dark and stormy night…
…Constance settled down in her rocking chair with a new mystery by Iona Whishaw…
…and meanwhile someone trudged towards the Hitty cupboard.
Constance was startled by a knock at the door!
Overcoming her alarm, Constance opened the door to find a damp and tired girl.
Constance counteracted both exhaustion and alarm – first with dessert…
and finally with a larger allowance of Jane Austen!
We are delighted to welcome a new little Hitty into the Hitty cupboard. She was carved by Bill Fifer and painted by our friend the Dollhouse Lady. We’ve named her Hitty Willa after Bill, and she seems to be a sensible girl. Her love of tea, dessert and books will help her fit right in.
Willa looks like she will be a friendly companion to the Hittys already in the Quimper cupboard!
It is lovely to be making friends with a new girl!
How very delightful to welcome a Hitty on such a gloriously dark and cozy night! And what a beauty she is! Your photos are just so perfect….how do you do it? I’m always in an enchanted land when viewing your photos.
It has been dark and stormy outside, as we have been experiencing an “Atmospheric River”…little Willa was an unexpected delight appearing on our porch, and very happy to join the cosy Hittys in their cupboard (with dessert, tea, and books!)
A-w-w love having more Hitty’s in our world. So nice that Willa found her home with you.
We were so happy she chose to come to us, and we’re sure her cheerfulness will warm our hearts!
She is a most Welcome Willa, a young lady of excellent taste 😊
Very welcome, and appears quite delighted to be here, out of the sturm and drang of the outside world and its weather!
what an exciting entrance…love the story and the photos. The glowing lamps…so perfect! The image of the stranger in her long cloak..so mysterious. I am sure she will have many adventures with the Quimper Cupboard family.
She was a stranger from a distant land, but we hope that she will find us a comfortable family to have landed it, we are certainly very happy to give her a home!
oh, how lovely. a new Hitty is always exciting. Welcome Willa.
Willa says thank you very much, and hopes to meet you in person some day soon!
Thank you very much, Bodana!
How lovely…. Always hitting me, loved so much story and photographs and sure, your Hitty Dolls, Thank you, Love, nia
Thank you Nia, we enjoy making up stories, and we love to hear that you and our other Hitty friends enjoy reading them!
It’s always a joy to get a new dolly, isn’t it! 🙂 ❤ I was expecting a really haunting tale, but this was a good one. Can't wait to see what you'll do for All Soul's Eve (aka Halloween). Ach, what am I saying, I know you don't celebrate it up North.
