Spring has Sprung! – Confessions of a Dollaholic





Today is the first day of Spring – the Vernal Equinox – for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.  This means that the sun is directly above the earth’s equator.  It is just a moment, not a whole day like we may think.  With the vernal equinox, the earth will slowly start tilting towards the northern hemisphere to bring us beautiful spring weather.  (I know – this is more than you wanted to know about the first day of spring  🙂 )
My mother taught me this spring saying when I was just a young child: Spring has sprung, the grass is riz, I wonder where the birdies is!

You can see the birdies in the photo above.  This is Sophie from the Mary Engelbreit collection by Tonner Doll Company.  She is called “A Bird in the Hand” and does indeed have two little birdies in her apron.  I think it’s amazing that whatever the theme, there are dolls that go with it.  Whether it’s birds in spring or St. Patrick’s day green (shown below).

And of course a Christmas Doll! 

I know what you’re thinking.  You think I’ve only showed the easy themes.  Well, how about this.  A doll for Labor Day!  She’s working – she’s sweeping!

What are your favorite theme/holiday dolls?  Share with us.

Enjoy the Spring if you are in the Northern Hemisphere, and enjoy Autumn if you are in the Southern Hemisphere.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!
