Sitting atop an iron layered display thing-a-ma-bob that was filled with pine cones for the winter holidays, then sprinkled with valentines, I stuck little folk art fabric dolls - an Adam and an Eve from Latin America. Eve is offering up the apple and I thought this was an interesting topper for a Valentine display.
So did guys who came to visit my husband and these little dolls were found in all sorts of positions, varying from day-to-day. So I'm told. I was in Dallas visiting my daughters.
Now I've pulled out all the Easter eggs, the fragile shells decorated over the years by my children who stopped doing this awhile ago. How they have made it through major cross-country moves must be because that Easter grass is ultra protective. So I've left the naked dolls with their fig-leaf protection at the top of the display wire thing. Now we've moved to the fertility idea of the eggs and all the Oester/Easter/Spring things this means. If my kiddos were around, the dolls wouldn't be up there. Would you have a problem w/ this at your house? Want me to tell you where you, too, can get these dolls? (at Pachamama in Santa Fe on Canyon Road).
Easter is March 23 this year. The last time Easter fell on so early a date was 1913, and the next time it will do so will be in the year 2160
