The Unlikely Adventures of Miss Hyla Bibbit

…a small frog in a big world…

Midwinter’s Eve 2015 December 21, 2015

Filed under: At Home in Sycamore Springs,Holidays,Outdoors — missbibbit @ 2:23 PM

Traditionally, Midwinter Eve gifts are given and collected between close friends and children; but this year, Velvette Slydale convinced the townsfolk of a different plan…

Phineas Underwood and little Ella finally moved into a home of their own, courtesy of the resident carpenters, Wade Waters and Hornbull Buttercup, in late November. All of Sycamore Springs gathered any extra bits and bobs to help fill their home for this year’s Midwinter Eve festival! Phineas was humbled by the warm reception he received when he first arrived in the forest, but this…this overwhelmed him and his niece. With teary eyes, he embraced his best friends in the woods, Velvette and her husband, Slick. He would endeavor to continue his contributions to this new place they could truly call home.

“Good morning, Miss Bibbit!”
“Good morning, Durwood!”
“Got some mail for you. No packages today!”
“That’s alright, I wasn’t expecting any today. Thank you!”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“I love my job!”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Hmm…fan letter, junk mail, pen pal….”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Who the heck is ‘Mrs. Moppet’?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“I bet Durwood Chestnut mixed up the mail again! Silly postman!”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Hello, Miss Bibbit! What brings you here?”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Hello Pansy! I found this letter with mine, but it doesn’t belong to me.”
“Oh dear, that is a conundrum!”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Well, Durwood is still on his rounds and I have a new batch to record and sort….”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“I suppose I could deliver it myself. It’s a nice day for a walk anyways. I’m curious about this ‘Mrs. Moppet’, too!”
“You’re a gem, Hyla! I’ll have one of the children send over something tonight as an apology and ‘thank you’!”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Well, this is the place…”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Hello, can I help you?”
*GASP*
“Another froggy!”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“…and that’s how I came to Sycamore Springs.”
“Wow! it must be exciting to have a sea captain for a husband!”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Oh, very! We’ve been to so many places! But it does get lonely when he’s out to sea.”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Don’t worry, Mrs. Moppet, that’s what friends are for!”

Behind the Scenes:
One weekend my friend Nick was staying with us and noticed a Sylvanian City magnet on our fridge. While he knew vaguely about Miss Bibbit, he still wasn’t too hip on what/who she was. He pointed to it and asked my boyfriend and our roommate, “Is that that Mrs. Moppet thing?”. The story was eventually relayed to me and this tale popped into my head.

This is for you, Nick.
