Miranda Mermaid joins the Story Door Dolls

Itty Bitty Hitty  was playing on the Story Door today.

She has discovered that the Lion’s Head door knocker is perfect for practicing acrobatics.

If she asks the Lion nicely, he is quite accommodating and will hold the ring ‘just so’.

She heard a strange sound behind the story door, so she scampered back to the Wall Doll House, and asked Coco and Bessie if they would come investigate with her.

Itty Bitty Hitty scrambled back up the door to the Lion’s head, to see if she could hear the odd sound again.

She was surprised when the Story Door creaked on it’s hinges and then, it opened, and a lovely lady appeared….

Not just ~any~ lady!


Bessie and Coco were so excited that they raced back to the Wall Doll House to see if anyone else would like to meet the beautiful mermaid.

Coco and Itty Bitty Hitty introduced themselves, and so did Miranda.

Hitty Tennie and Bessie Gnome brought some comfie couches from the Wall Doll House, as they were sure that there would be stories told at the Story Door.

Sure enough, just as everyone settled in to hear Miranda’s story, a little ship floated through the Story Door.

Miranda told her new friends that she had been frolicking in the waves.

Suddenly a the tiny ship sailed past her and zoomed towards something that looked like the opening to a cave.

It wasn’t a cave…. it was the ‘other side’ of the Story Door!

Everyone ‘oooohed’ and ‘ahhhed’ at Miranda’s adventure…..

Tottie Tomato popped by to meet Miranda and see the magical little sailing ship.

Tottie, Coco and Bessie were so enchanted by Miranda’s stories that they didn’t notice that….

Itty Bitty Hitty had climbed up into the rigging of the tiny ship….

Only Kitty saw, but no one paid attention to her ‘miaows’.

Hopefully, Itty Bitty Hitty will get down off the mast before the tiny sailing ship sails away through the Story Door…..

    What a very fine adventure. I wasn’t able to leave a message in response to yesterday’s post, but what I noticed is that the littlest Hitty has the most delicious dancing shoes!

  2. What a lovely Mermaid – she has a beautiful iridescent tail…and a charming story. Bitty Hitty looks like she wants to be friends and Coco is a scamp!

    • Thank you, Kjerstin!
      Miranda is rather pleased with her iridescent tail… it reminds her of watching the Northern Lights while she swims with the whales.
      Coco is indeed a scamp, but I have a feeling that little Bitty HItty might take the cake when it comes to mischief…..
