I have loved dolls, history, and the Victorian Era since I was little and can credit my grandmother for that. As a young girl she gave me a Godey’s Fashion print for August 1870 from my great, great Aunt Flossie. I was captivated by the dresses and became hooked. I just love to research everything and anything about the Victorian Era. I also love to design Victorian dolls. I hope you enjoy my Victorian Dolls, Victorian Traditions,The Victorian Era, and Me blog.

How Can You Not Love A Quartet Of Flossie's? - Victorian Lady Dolls

It doesn't get much better than a quartet of "Flossie's" all modeled after their cousin "Flossie" (LW011). In fact, the Flossie quartet's idolize their cousin Flossie so much that they decided to have similar names, look similar to their cousin and wear similar outfits. But, that's where the similarities lie as they are nothing like their cousin Flossie.

Flossie May (LW011A), Flossie Anne( LW011C), Flossie Jacqueline (LW011E), and Flossie Kate (LW011E) are 4 completely different "ladies." They are all refined and well bred, but their personalities couldn't be any different.

Flossie May is a book worm and very studious. She is hoping to be the class valedictorian when she graduates from college and wants to be the first doctor in the family. So, she spends a LOT of time at the library and studying. However, that doesn't mean that she doesn't like a little fun here and there.

Flossie Anne is very quiet and shy and doesn't like a lot of attention which she tends to get because of her long curly blonde hair and facial beauty. She'd much prefer to be in the background helping wherever she can. She love organizing parties and afternoon tea's. She just doesn't like to be the center of attention.

Flossie Jacqueline is the most dignified of the Flossie's. She wants to be a refined lady of society and marry into a good family. To do so she has to be a well mannered, dignified, intelligent, and talented lady. Flossie Jacqueline thinks she is all that and more.

Flossie Kate loves adventure and wants to be out hiking, mountain climbing, playing tennis, or on some wild safari. She just loves the outdoors and hates when she has to be presentable and make an appearance at her cousin's afternoon tea's. She may look every bit the "lady" but she is an adventurer at heart.
