Hilde’s Gone Soft!

Many of you may remember Witch Hildegard.  Last October she made her debut dressed in her finest witchy attire.

Well, I’m here to tell you that Hilde’s gone soft.

Look what she stepped out into my entry in today.

I think somebodies been raiding the wrapping paper box.  Not only does she have a tissue paper bodice, but a couple of tissue roses to boot!

I’ve been wondering where my two  vintage doilies disappeared to.

Look at that bow!  At first I thought that the red tag had to go.  But no, she loved the pop of red.

She thinks she’s the Queen of the Valentine Ball with her sparkly ‘V’, burlap rose,

and  pink tulle skirt.  She did mention that she wished she had some rose petals in the hem.

Now, her change of attire is not the worst of it.  She also now insists that I call her ‘Penelope’.

Oh well I give, Penelope it is.  I must admit, Hilde Penelope looks awfully pretty in pink.

As long as she promises to return as ‘Hilde’ next October I will even look for some rose petals to go in the hem of her skirt.

I might even loan her my cute vintage hat.

Hugs from me and Penelope!

Penelope looks gorgeous. Better lock the door so she doesn't go out dancing.

Happy Valentine's to you too. It's sure fun at your house.

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

Penelope, you look mavelous all dressed and ready to go where? All that is needed to complete that pretty pink outfit is a pair and a half of pretty shoes for your three feet. Heehee. ( She is lots of fun, Jann. Good job! )--------

I love Hildes softer look, I am so glad she made it to the ball too!! A girl can never have to much wrapping paper and bling!

Sandy said...

We'll call her Penelope if that's what her heart desires! Such a clever girl..wrapping paper and that touch of red. Whatever makes your heart sing...that's what I say. Hope she and Hedy meet at the ball...they will become fast friends, I'm sure.
