Meet one of the Trippet Castle ghosts. No one knows their names, but they inhabit the castle in the same way as all the other dolls, visitors, (and the owners, of course), and they have as much right to be there as anyone else. They all have their own sorry little stories – this one is from the nursery in the round tower. She killed herself when her lover died. It is quite hard for a doll to commit suicide and takes a great deal of determination and practice. She managed it in the end though – one has to be persistent when one is making a statement! She created her own costume to go a-haunting in – it is made from the wrapping of the one bouquet of flowers her lover ever bought for her, and the ribbon which was around the only box of chocolates he ever gave her. Tragic, isn’t it? If only she had fallen in love with one of the teddy bears instead – but sadly she fell for the one toy in the tower who was absolutely destined to come to an early end – his name was Humpty Dumpty.
