Flower Frocked Dollies

Corgyncombe Library Notes
"The Story of The Three Dolls" written by Josephine Scribner Gates and illustrated by Virginia Keep is on display at the Corgyncombe Library. Inside are such interesting stories as "The Story of the Gold Beads", "The Story of the Candy Heart", "The Candy Island", and "Borrowed Feathers". In "The Story of the Gold Beads" the girls decorate the baby, carriage, and her doll with flowers. The same author and illustrator also worked together to make a book called "The April Fool Doll".

Corgyncombe Cottage has its own little doll called April... April Thistledown. Tillie Tinkham was inspired to make April Thistledown's sweet pea outfit by the Hollyhock dolls made by the reporters at The Corgyncombe Courant and was also inspired by an illustration of a lady dressed in a sweet pea outfit.
