Introducing....Hitty Rose~ A Hittygirls
cold winter night, Hitty Rose snuggled under her hand-stitched quilt
with her tiny copy of Hitty: Her First Hundred Years resting at the end
of the bed. She pushed her feet closer to her bed-warmer as she dozed
off. As she slept, she dreamed of Ancestor Hitty and all of her
exciting adventures. Being with one person all of her life had some
privileges, but she longed to meet more people and see more places than
one person could show her.
Hitty Rose awoke in the morning, she made a startling discovery. Her
person's hardback copy of Hitty: Her First Hundred Years had fallen
right off the shelf and directly on to her! She muffled and wiggled to
get out from under the heavy book. As she slid out from under it, she
also realized that she was flat! At first, this was a horrifying
discovery. But then, she realized what a gift this accident could be
for her! Now she could fit perfectly into a business size envelope! She
could travel the world; or something like that.
Travel Pictures With...
Rose is looking to travel. She is a 6 1/2 inch paper doll Hitty,
printed on cardstock and laminated to preserve the colors from normal
handling. She fits in a business sized envelope with first class
postage. Hitty Rose would like to travel light. She does not wish to
accumulate any gifts for herself or to travel with gifts to her next
receiving home. The idea is to keep her travel simple and affordable
for everyone to play, from the ease of mailing her to the cost of her
Hitty Rose would like to do is to travel to many different homes and be
photographed at historical or recreational sites or events, anywhere
interesting or beautiful where you live, and meet other Hittys.
Whatever you do with Hitty, Hitty Rose would like to do with your Hitty
family. This is a photo-sharing experience for Hitty Rose and
Hittygirls. Please post your photos to the Hitty Rose album at
Hittygirls, with appropriate titles and descriptions of your photos and
activities, which will be transferred to a Hittygirls webpage.
If you would like to host Hitty Rose,
please sign up in the database at Hittygirls at Yahoogroups
specifically for Hitty Rose. Her duration of stay at each home
will be approximately 2 1/2 weeks, with one host for the first half of
the month, and another host for the second half of the month. I am
currently taking sign-ups through May, but she will continue to travel
through the rest of 2014, or until interest wanes. Once I get her
started and there is a list through the end of May, I will open the
list for her summer travel. Participants may host her more than once.
Please state which month, and which half of the month you would prefer,
such as "February 2nd" (February 2nd half of the month), "March 1st"
(March, 1st half of the month), etc.
contact the next person on the list when you are ready to send her on.
Please email me if you are
not sure who that is. If there is ever a situation where Hitty Rose
does not have a receiving home, send her back to me, and I will review
the list or post a message to Hittygirls to determine where to send her
next. She does not need any kind of delivery confirmation or insurance,
but please let me know if you suspect that she is lost in the mail. She
just may show up again.....
