Valentine's Day Sweetness!

Jerusha and Myrtle Mae Made by Martha Bishop!

Lovely Jerusha, an Izannah Walker inspired doll, made by talented artist Martha Bishop, recently came to join the dolls at Corgyncombe! After she came, Jerusha told us about her sweet little sister back at Martha's, named Myrtle Mae. Straight away, we sent for little Myrtle Mae. They are thrilled to be together again and all the other dolls just love them!

Martha made all their beautiful clothes and Jerusha's delightful shoes! When I saw Jerusha's pretty red frock, I thought of Valentine's Day. In the photograph above they are each holding a Valentine.


Myrtle Mae holds the Valentine she received from Jerusha. It says "To One I Love". Little Myrtle Mae picked out a Valentine with a basket of flowers on it for Jerusha. Jerusha and Myrtle Mae were so happy to sit to have their portraits taken with their Valentines by the Christmas tree. We still have our Christmas tree up, it's so festive and still holding its needles why take it down!

Happy Valentine's Day
to our Dear Readers!

Martha Bishop is also a talented painter. She sent us a card of a delightful Noah's Ark painting she did.

Cousins, I love the little smudge on her nose... This artist is so good at making her dolls looks wonderfully aged. I went to her site and her paintings have a special Gramma Moses feel to them, very charming and folk-like. Jerusha is one of my favorite old time names. The ladies will fit right in at your home! Cousin Jeri

Dear Cousin Jeri,

Martha is a wonderful doll artist and makes many sweet dolls! Her cards make delightful greetings! Jerusha was my third great grandmother's name.

Your dollies are so lovely. I have 3 Martha dolls and love them all. I am in the process of making them some clothing. I also have a print of a painting, and one of her Mother's paintings too. I am one lucky lady. Martha is a wonderful folk artist.

Dear Sherri,

You are fortunate to have the three Martha dolls, and a print of her and her mother's painting! Your Martha dolls are delightful!
