2020 has been a bizarre year to say the least. The girls have been very well behaved and played by the rules. Although Mamie has vetoed against going Trick or Treating, she advised the girls to set the mood for upcoming Halloween....just in case ‘something’ came up.

So out came the dresses, costumes, hats and trims...and they went to work!


Mamie had a plan...she kept to herself and after the girls were in bed, she hurried over to the cabin and worked her magic...


Going through an old family recipe book, she found recipes for heirloom candies! She decided she would make some and bag them for each wooden. One can’t be too cautious these days and Mamie certainly doesn’t want to cause any harm to her little ones.

I have to say...only Mamie has this kind of patience in our household!


Well...the big night is here, much to everyone's delight! The girls didn’t have to be called twice...as soon as Mamie put the word out that there was some Trick or Treating at the cabin, they ran over and got in line to get their treats!


When all is said and done, each and everyone got a special treat!

Mamie wishes all Hittys and their caretakers a fun Halloween! They are convinced each of us has enough love to make it go around whatever the circumstances.


But wait...there's more!

Mamie has been reminded this year that her age group is vulnerable and besides, her old bones made it clear there can be no running about town for Holiday gifts!

Being the practical lady that she is, she thought she’d get a head start, avoiding Black Friday madness...shopping in the comfort of home. So she asked our talented artists to create special items for this occasion and they were glad to oblige.

Mamie invites you to join in on her Holiday Prelude market, a 5 day only event scheduled for November 16-20. Please keep those dates in mind. Mamie will give you notice as to how and where this virtual market will take place. Stay tuned!

Mamie has been wracking her brains... In search of means to help out in these trying days. She paced and pondered until it dawned on her: why not do what she does best???

She zoomed off to her neighbor, Mr. Boucher. He was all ears and quickly approved of Mamie’s plan, offering his full support.

Many might not have easy access to fresh produce, meat, cheese, sweets... Mamie’s  passion for cooking combined with Mr. Boucher’s exquisite supplies will add up to Catering from the Heart.

Pretty soon, the kitchen was bustling.

Mamie worked her magic around the clock.

Hitty Maude and Hitty Fleurdelys were quick to lend a helping hand.

Every inch of the space Mr. Boucher provided was filled!!! A caterer’s dream come true. Now, the girls can go drop off the goodies on doorsteps all around and do what Hittys do best: spread love and joy!

Coming home after a full day, Mamie went to wash her hands...

And stumbled upon this shocker... Do we have a crisis on our hands???


Woodens and humans hope this brought a smile to all and want each of you to know we feel blessed to have you in our lives.

The cabinets are bustling with activity... Decorations are coming out of their boxes, every corner is getting its share of Holiday feeling...All the girls are giving a hand. Pretty soon, every room will be decked!

Some put the toys away while others set the scene...

Every inch gets attention... Even in the formal parlor.

As usual, Mamie concentrates on her kitchen...she selected two promising pupils to help with baking. She made sure they wore proper attire in her shrine!

The three of them have been busy all day...the results are quite pleasing and...it may prove very hard to resist temptation until Christmas! Hopefully, every sweet tooth will be treated on the big day.
