". . .whatever caught Poebe Preble's fancy sooner or later managed to find its way inter her hands or her father's pockets. She soon had strings of silver and coral and little twinkling shells. There was even a string for me, of round red coral. . ." Hitty: Her First Hundred Years by Rachel Field
On a recent rainy day, I reread Hitty and fulfilled a girlhood wish to have coral beads. Of course, I don't think these beads are coral, but they answer for the picture in my mind. I've had the supplies for months, but I think the whole necklace cost something under $10, thanks to a coupon.
What's your favorite part in Hitty? If you haven't read it, you've got a treat ahead!
