Tea Party Hostess, 18 inches, B 2005
The first Claire was a gift to a little Claire who always greeted her daddy with: "Daddy, can Claire and Claire have tea with you today?" Born in the spring, she is all about our garden's birthing in pastel floral calicos in her pristine costuming. She almost has a "Mary, Mary, quite contrary" look. Her looped mohair braids will last for a lifetime. Like many of her sister Bundles, she has a pocket for secrets too.
