“Hello! Come in, we are so happy that you could come to the party!”
The dolls are all rushing around with last minute party preparations, Isane and Ismay are in the kitchen, along with their dearest friend Prudence, who came early to help. Isane is arranging all of the freshly cut garden flowers, and Ismay is making the Sage Tea while the Birthday Puddings cool. The tea is from their grandmother’s receipt book and one of their favorite teas. Prudence has volunteered to read them some poetry to keep them amused while they work. ❤
“Now that you have had the chance to stop by the kitchen and say “hello”, let’s go on up to the parlor.” “Please watch your step, the stairs are rather steep and worn in this old house.” “The parlor is quite crowded, but we will find you a cozy seat somewhere!”
