In This House : Abbey Garden 1

Aurelia is the daughter of Alexandru and Constanta,
two circus artists who travel the world performing
for public in a big, colourful tent. Aurelia is for the
time being living with Constanta's sister, Camelia,
because her parents want her to get a good
education which is impossible for her to get when
always on the move. Alexandru and Constanta
send Aurelia at least one letter a week and toys
from every corner of the world. Aurelia collects
the stamps on the letters she recieves in an album
and tries to find out as much as she can about the
countries they come from. Her uncle has a large
bookcase with an Encyclopedia which she uses
very often, and every week she visits the library
to check if there is more information to be found.
The toys she puts on shelves in her room. Every
toy is accompanied by a small card with the name
of the country it came from. She likes all her toys
but there is one in particular that she likes the
best. It is a dollhouse that was made in china.
It has pretty furniture and a family of six dolls
that live in it. All the dolls have silk clothes and
have pretty painted faces. Aurelia has lots of
teaparties with her dollhouse dolls and in the
evenings she puts them into their beds. There is
one thing that is very odd with this dollshouse
though. Every morning when Aurelia gets up and
takes a look in the dollhouse, its inhabitants are
already sitting round the kitchentable having breakfast …
