I should know the answer to this, but I don't.

What's the title (or what are the titles) for the story where the good sister has diamonds and roses dropping from her mouth every time she speaks, and the bad sister has frogs and snakes?

For the life of me, I cannot remember what story that is.

Charles Perrault's "Toads and Diamonds" (Andrew Lang's Blue Fairy Book)
Thank you. (My copy of Perrault has only a selection of stories, of which that is not one.)

Also sometimes called "The Fairy Gifts."
