Hitty Dauphine and the Weathertop girls have been dreaming about this moment for months, and the time has finally arrived.
The time has come to decorate for Christmas.
So we pulled all of the Christmas ornaments out of the attic and got started.
It is important to hang the tinsel garlands on the tree before putting up the ornaments so that all of your pretty ornaments will stand to the forefront. Hitty Too is busy untangling the garland while Dido Twite skillfully wraps the garland around the tree.
Hitty Butterbean is ready to hang the red glass ornaments. Watch out Butterbean! Don't step on the ornament lying on the floor!
Hitty Dauphine helps to hang the ornaments. She knows it is important to hang them high and to hang them low and not to forget the in betweens.
This visiting Hitty is proud to have been chosen to put the star on the top of the tree. It is an honor always given to the youngest Hitty.
While Visiting Hitty gets the star sorted out, Butterbean hangs some pretty wreaths on the piano. She is thinks that while it is fun to put the Weathertop Christmas treasures in their traditional places, it is even more fun to find new ways to decorate the house.
Hitty Dauphine has to stand on a chair to hang the garland above the archway.
After the girls are done decorating, it is time to enjoy having a little holiday snack of tea and cookies...
...and singing beloved Christmas Carols around the piano..."Oh Little Town of Bethlehem..."
...and visiting with friends new and old.
We hope your holiday decorating and celebrating is feeling just as peaceful and satisfying as ours. Happy Holidays!
We are pleased to present a series of six Christmas dresses. There are two dresses of each of these styles and colors available for purchase.
Always a favorite is the Christmas Crossover in green with holly berries...
...and cream with garlands, berries and ornaments. Each of these fabrics is accented with gold to make them even more festive.
Up next is the Christmas Pinafore.
The final set of dresses is the Plain Jane with red velvet ribbon accents. I am finding this dress to be not very Plain Jane at all!
This last set is my favorite. I am very pleased with how they turned out!
These dresses were made from 100% cotton holiday fabric with gold accents. They are fastened in the back with little brass safety pins but I will include a set of snaps for you to custom install to make the fit just right for your Hitty. (I feel I must mention that although one of these dresses is being modelled by a Raikes Hitty, it is the only one that fits her and it is a tiny bit tight on her. If you want this dress, please be sure to ask for it specially. I would also like to note that this Raikes Hitty will soon be available on ebay so stay tuned).
Like I said, there are two of each of these dresses (2 green crossovers, 2 cream crossovers and so on) available for purchase. If you are interested, please contact me.
Otherwise, here is a little song to cheer you through your day...
