It’s funny living on the other side of the world, while all my friends back home are chirping about the joys of spring, and visits to the beach (albeit too chilly for a dip!) I’m ordering logs for our fire and airing our ida down quilts ( yes it does get chilly here).
It’s also creates creative questions for my little ladies. In Europe, Dolls are being made with lovely floral dresses being photographed in wheat fields surrounded by spring flowers and the community is chatting about how summer gives their creative juices renewed vigour.
My ladies are cold, they need their coats and scarves as the wind rattles the windows! The idea of putting them in light summery clothing, is at complete odds with our reality.
But will people be able to identify with the girls if they are wrapped up in their winter best??
I hope so, because we’ve had far too many colds this year already !
