A Wee Irish Cottage.....

When searching through my pictures I came across this one of a display at our Harvest Service - and I'm sure those of you who frequent the WaltzingMouse site will immediately associate this with Claire's little cottage....the display stands on an old hand cart which would have been in use many many years ago, indeed I remember when a child patiently waiting for the post man to come on Christmas morning and hoping he would have a parcel for me on his red painted cart - it was just like this one...there never was a parcel! They'd all been contained in my Grannies big long black stocking which was tied to the bedpost and probably held an orange in the toe, a box of Maltesers (sweets) a pair of Ladybird pj's (they were lovely and warm as they had a fleecy lining) and more than likely there would be a doll my Mother would have made from knitting older sisters can correct me if I'm wrong.
