"Oh to have a little house..."
Mrs. Pegg is getting rather nervous, Christmas is not far away and Mr. Pegg has still not emerged from the workshop. She fervently hopes he will appear soon. She is also unsure if she can really trust the Architect who is planning the Pegg family home - she is after all a Human Bean and can hardly be expected to fully understand the needs of a Doll family... although perhaps one should not be prejudiced...

These are adorable dolls! I love the colours you've chosen for their clothes. I've got a copy of that edition of Rumer Godden's book the illustrations are wonderful and your people suit them well.

Perfectly adorable! I'm pretty sure this Human Bean can be trusted guys - she has an excellent track record.

The background is provided by the endpapers from the Macmillan edition of Rumer Godden's "The dolls' house" illustrated by Tasha Tudor.

The picture title is a quote from Padraic Conaire's (1882-1928) poem "The old woman of the roads" which we learned by heart in primary school.
