A wonderful time was to be had at the Deb Canham Tea Party....

....The day started with a Quiz and ended with an Auction of one off pieces.

Well the very first task was to find a seat for everyone....

Once seated, it was heads down and the quiz was in full swing....

Do you think teacher would notice if we did the quiz together, I must admit even together our answers were wrong.

Well not many answers being found at this table ladies, talking in class will bring low scores.

We are delighted to Present to you all >> Mrs Tiggy-Winkle by R John Wright...

.....The sixth of Beatrix Potter's little books, The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-winkle was first published in 1905. The story follows a meticulous washer-woman completing her bundles of laundry.

The character was inspired by a Kitty McDonald, Scottish washerwoman, "a comical, round little old woman, as brown as a berry and wears a multitude of petticoats".

Many of Beatrix Potter's story-book animals were based on her own pets to which she often gave human qualities. Beatrix's tame hedgehog, which she had named "Mrs. Tiggy-winkle", did her duty as a model for the illustrations: "So long as she can go to sleep on my knee she is delighted, but if she is propped up on end for half an hour, she first begins to yawn pathetically, and then she does bite! Nevertheless she is a dear person."

For 2008, John and Susan Wright are proud to add Mrs. Tiggy-winkle™, to their highly-acclaimed Beatrix Potter Collection.

Measuring approximately 12" tall, this delightful roly-poly character is fully jointed and constructed of the finest custom made mohair plush and cotton.
She features realistic coloring, a molded nose, glass eyes, inset whiskers, and separate fingers with resin claws.

Mrs. Tiggy-winkle comes outfitted in a layered felt and cotton costume which will include custom printed fabrics in the soft, delicate shades of the watercolor illustrations.
Her spiky tipped mohair pokes through the fabric of her organdy bonnet and on her feet she wears hand cobbled felt and leather boots.

In one hand, Mrs. Tiggy-winkle holds a quilted felt potholder and her own custom made miniature sadiron!

No detail has been overlooked in striving for the utmost in accuracy to the original Beatrix Potter images.

Produced in a numbered limited edition of just 500 pieces worldwide, Mrs.

Tiggy-winkle will come inside a deluxe RJW presentation box. Included will be the signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity and forms for owner registration.
