Valentine's Day at Towpath Cottage!

Bobby Takes a Tumble!
 Hittys gathered round the table of old fashioned Valentines.
A Valentine Party of Tillie Tinkham's Sewing Circle was held at Towpath Cottage.

Towpath Cottage is where Hitty Beth lives with her Mum who is our dear friend.
We enjoyed Valentine cookies and tea and lively conversation with Hitty Beth's Mum. We all had a delightful time!

Old fashioned Valentines were made and given.
The carved wooden dolls were made by talented doll carver Judy Brown.

Sitting under the table Andy cuts out a special little Valentine for Hitty Diane. How she loves it!

Tillie holds a pretty Valentine for Ima.

In the background one can see the opening for the stairway. Whilst the Hittys were assembling for their Valentine Party, Bobby, in his haste to rush up the stairway, tumbled down the stairs! Although he later recovered and was not permanently injured, Bobby had to sit out the party with an ice bag on his head.

Above is Bobby at the Forget-Me-Not Fair.

Bobby was in a hurry to get to the Valentine table to pick out the prettiest Valentine for Hitty Diane. Bobby was annoyed that he missed the party and very irked about Hitty Diane and Andy.

Last Autumn we serendipitously found a dollhouse for the little Hittys.
Here Bobby is trying to impress Hitty Diane by hopping up on the porch rail to peek in the bay window. Hitty Diane is alarmed and throws up her hands warning Bobby that he could fall and Nanny wouldn't like him balancing on the porch rail.

Bobby hopped over the porch rail and then he lost his balance and tumbled off. He felt quite smug until he tumbled off. This was before little Andy came to Corgyncombe....
