If you wondered what carved wood dolls, named after Hitty, were doing on Canada Day then be sure to check these photos.
Naturally, they were celebrating!
And they wanted to go fishing in the beautiful Muskoka Lakes near the Canadian Shield. Can you blame them for wanting to paddle out onto the clear, crisp water to see what they might catch?
They dressed up in great outfits created by Aunt Elizabeth and climbed trees — although it is not so easy to climb tree in a dress. I would think that the carved wood girls could bond easily with the tree, since they are made from trees themselves — horse chestnut tree, tulip poplar tree and a birch tree. If I’m not mistaken, they are climbing a birch tree.
It was a great day to hang out with the Canadian flag and perhaps sing the National Anthem, “O Canada.” It looks generally like a great day to be outside and soaking up nature.
Thanks to Aunt Elizabeth who dressed the girls festively and took the Hitty girls to Muskoka, Ontario, for a photoshoot!
