In reality, Quentin and Angelica were delighted to be back to the mess that was Charleston.
Old soggy toast on the table, left there all day, Duncan as vague as ever. He wasn't their father anyway so why should he be interested in their doings. Vanessa greeted them abstractedly - she was thinking of a new painting and Roger Fry was coming for the weekend. Wherever would she put them all? The narrow single beds were not conducive for more than one occupant at a time although----- her mind hedged - Duncan and Bunny seemed to manage when the mood took them. It would be an uncomfortable weekend - but perhaps the sofa..... Again her mind blanked - and Virginia was here too. Heavens, she must consult Grace in the kitchen - she would be bound to have some ideas.

Hee, hee.hee - of course he is - but you are not meant to know this at this moment in Grecon time I think - but you are usually right, Julie. We are in the early 1950s here now.. Bunny was in at the birth and made his future marriage decisions back in the 30's. And people think Greconville is a bit wild......

This is glorious! I adore the remains of breakfast on the table - and all the rest of the clutter. The painted interior of the cabinet in the corner is gorgeous, too.

Quentin and Angelica are a robust pair! They're beautifully dressed. I've always imagined that my mother, born 1928, would have had a coat and hat like Angelica's, in her infancy, like the little girl, Anne, illustrated by E. H. Shepard in "Now We Are Six".

Sorry, Rosemary but it does look more like a hare! Great scene & lovely dolls!

fatten up the dog and s/he will be more dog-like, maybe!?

Try to make a Hare and it may turn out looking like a dog! Either are an achievement.

Oh dear, Rosemary, I'm sorry about the mix uo, but your response did make me LOL! I realise now that if I put my pipe cleaner dog in a jumping position he would look EXACTLY like yours... Do you think maybe we both need to hone our pipe cleaner dog making skills?!!

LOL Zoe! That "Hare" is my attempt at a dog........Quentin has the cap on, Angelica the 30's cloche.

Q and A are splendid (as is this room!) but which one is which? Love the pipe cleaner hare, my attempt at a dog is not dissimilar!

Poor Vanessa - someone has to maintain a modicum of order amongst all the chaos.
