How Does She: This woman gives dolls clothes and stories based on her ancestors

We love the idea of these ancestor-inspired dolls!

If you are familiar with American Girl dolls, you know each one has a distinctive character look and personality. Some dolls even have their own storybook. We met a Rose Park woman who has a big collection of dolls just like that, but their stories are real and their purpose is for much more than playtime.

Liz Frandsen has poured her creativity into the most incredible doll playroom.
