For Ms Riot Kitty

The lovely Riot Kitty asked me what a 'poppet' is after a recent post.

According to Wikipedia (reliable sources FTW!): "The word poppet is an older spelling of puppet, from the Middle English popet, meaning a small child or doll. In British Dialect it continues to hold this meaning. Poppet is also a chiefly English term of endearment."

So a poppet, to me, is a sweetie, a darling, a lovely.

Rather like RK herself! :-)

  1. I love the term poppet, always have. You've just reminded me of another endearment I can use with my Sloane. Thanks. Happy spring.

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
