Fleur, a wooden doll that I carved many decades ago, had an uncomfortable situation arise during our move- her foot went awol and had it’s own adventures.
Luckily, it re-appeared and is now firmly re-attached to Fleur.
Fleur was so happy to be re-united with her foot that she invited Tottie Tomato, Jane Austen, Albert Einstein and The Story Door Dolls all to come and sip a cup of tea with her.
There was one small problem….
Most of the teacups have mysteriously vanished from the Story Door Doll’s antique wicker suitcase.
Luckily, the guests were very gracious about being served tea in thimbles and assorted other vessels.
Professor Einstein was very accommodating about sipping his tea from a brass goblet, although he had to wait rather a long time for it to cool, as it was somewhat uncomfortably hot.
Jane Austen whispered to Tottie Tomato that she thought that the unusual nature of the teaparty was fun, but was rather glad that she didn’t bring along her silly sisters. She also thought that Mr. Darcy would probably have not approved….
Tennie did her best to help out by bringing along my favorite teacup earrings and a teacup crochet hook that I carved many years ago.
The Cat, puppy and turtle were happy to share a dish of tea.
Fleur gave everyone a few lessons on her tiny spool knitters, but then, she laid back to simply bask in the pleasure of the company of her friends.
The tea party was a success. Everyone agreed, even though the tea cups didn’t all make it to the party.
Perhaps they will be found in some unexpected place.
Moving. It is full of disruptions.
Thank heavens for dear friends!
