The Hittys have just returned from their annual trip to Sturbridge, Massachusetts, for the Miniature Show. What a wonderful time was had by all!!!
The Hittys have made this trip many times now and thought they knew all there was to know about the area…until they got lost and happened upon this abandoned house. Of course they had to explore!
Hitty Jean was pretty certain that exploring the inside of the building would be a thrill. This adventure ended with a stern lecture from Mamie about trespassing and the dangers posed by old abandoned buildings. Needless to say, the inside was not viewed by the Hittys, except from safely outside!
Our Sturbridge trips never happen without our annual “Tablecloth Pinnys” – made by our dear friend and keeper of the Robertson Hittys. This year’s pinny was adorable and all the Hittys wore them proudly. “Eyes up, Hitty Maude!!!”
Great Aunt Doll and Grandma Alice were thrilled with this year’s show. So many wonderful things to see and buy, it is very difficult to stay within budget! The artisan breads on offer this year were “Oh, la la!” And that tiny painted box with the tiniest of Bécassines inside! Oh, my! The box was painted with a Bécassine theme and so gorgeous! (links will take you to the artist’s information.)
As is the case every year, the Hittys awaiting adoption were looking somewhat nervous. Great Aunt Doll was sure to stop by and offer them words of encouragement. All Hitty owners are kind and caring, as we well know!
We are home now and exhausted but happy…an extra nap is needed and the laundry is tumbling away. In less than a week, Hitty Jean and her friends will be on their way to Castine for Guild School! We can’t wait to learn new things!!!
‘Til Next Time…
