It took a whole lot of Hittys to get ready for the first Halloween in the new house – first Min and Tansy went to the pumpkin patch…

…then help was needed to roll the pumpkins up the stairs!

Amelia nipped down to the balcony to sweep away leaves…

…and down to street level to tidy the stoop for the incoming spooks…

At sundown Amelia fired up the Jack-o-lantern…

…and all the girls wish you a Happy Halloween!!!

The Jack-o-lantern is actually courtesy of my middle child, who made it out of clay in about grade three!

  1. It’s a challenge to pick just a comment. Each frame is priceless. The skirt that Min is wearing is “Halloween extraordinaire” You must have freaked out when you found it…and Oh My Word! Grainne with her cutlass going at that Jack Lantern really got me laughing… loved it.

    • A kind friend sent me a scrap out of which I made a Hitty dress, and Min’s skirt! They love the fabric, and some times wear their boney finery to the Museum when they come with me!

  2. So very right: it’s hard to pick a favorite frame!!!! All done with such gusto…and Halloween elegant woodens too!!!! Thank you for making this gloomy day happy!!!! Hope the Hittys get well treated 🎃

  3. Yikes! That pumpkin is one of the scariest, spookiest ones ever!! The Bonsai Hittys are taking only quick peeks at the photos because they are so scared!!

  4. great to see Grainne putting that cutlass to work! Every frame is a story and all are such fun. Am admiring that scary Jack O lantern.. Happy Halloween to the Quimper Hittys!!!
