Sorry, this item has sold.

So much more than a suitcase with furniture and accessories. This little suitcase is packed ready for a journey into imaginative play and storytelling....

Just across the fields, following a well trodden path, there is a walled garden belonging to Petunia Piedmont the Baker. Her Courtyard Bakery is at the foot of a mountain on which, it is said, dragons once lived many years ago.

Set into the wall is an arched wooden doorway that leads into a cool courtyard, where on a hot sunny day many of her customers enjoy a glass of iced home made lemonade and a delicious slice of cake whilst sharing their tales of magical creatures.

Their happy voices, carried by the warm breeze, drift like thistledown into the Bakery shop, where they inspire Petunia to create some of her speciality cakes. The "Golden Empress" cake - was named after the celebrated Dragon Empress herself. She had golden scales and eyes that glowed like rubies.
Another speciality cake she named after "The Emerald Prince" He was the only son of the Dragon King. His huge wings and tail were covered in scales of iridescent green that flashed like emeralds in the sun.

And this is where my story ends and yours begins.....
