A Girl for All Time Doll - Matilda - I'm Giving One Away!

On September 1, 2012 I'm giving away one Matilda, A Girl For All Time Dolls. This doll is truly beautiful with her grey, velvet gown from Tudor times. I'm also including the book, Matilda's Secret, so you can know the story of Matilda. I really love how the Girl for All Times dolls follow the story of Matilda and her descendants - what a fun way to learn the history of England!

With the recent Jubilee for the Queen, the wedding last year of Prince William and Katherine and the upcoming Olympics, England has certainly been in the news a lot! It is fun to learn about other places and times, so I thought I'd share some information on England which I found on the Girl for All Time website. Enjoy!

Tower of London The Tower of London is one of the most historically important sites in the world and has been home to monarchs and menageries. With over one thousand years of thrilling tales and secrets buried in its walls, you are sure to discover something for you and your family to enjoy. Visit the Tower and imagine what it was like when Katherine and Matilda were imprisoned... Image courtesy of Peter Pikous

Henry VIII had more than 60 houses at the time of his death in 1547 but none were more lavish than Hampton Court. Take a day to discover the magnificent palace that was Henry's most loved home, and see if you can glimpse Katherine Howard's ghost in the Haunted Gallery. Image courtesy of Historic Royal Palaces
