Today I am listing dolls from GHANA, IRELAND, and ENGLAND.
The two dolls from ENGLAND are made by PEGGY NISBET. The one in the "POL:ISH" costume is NOT an authentic costume, but I have added her here for you to see that costume dolls are not always a true representation of the country which they are intended to represent. Having said that, she is a pretty doll wearing a colourful outfit.
For more photos, and information about the dolls, please see the website. Thank you.
I have had the costume on the Peggy Nisbet doll confirmed by a POLISH doll collector friend who specialises in Polish costume dolls. You can see her wonderful blog of Polish dolls at: Polishfolkdolls.blogspot.com

I have also added three photos of waterfalls, at the bottom of this Post, which I saw on one of my recent walks, as I know some of you like seeing photos from my walks.

Although the label on this doll states that this doll is dressed
in the costume of Poland, it is NOT an authentic costume.

HAFOD WATERFALL (The Cascade)
You have to walk through a dark, wet tunnel to reach this waterfall
but it is SO worth it!
My photo does NOT do it justice!
