Art Doll — Springalina

Since the temps hit 70F today, I thought is was time to introduce Springalina.

IMG_2096Springalina was born in her den in New England, where the winters are long and the nights are oh so cold.  She spends many months underground fearful for the coyotes, fisher cats, raccoons, hawks and owls who would hunt her for food.  This winter has been so harsh on her that she decided to change the color of her fur to a more tropical hue and seek warmer climes.  Hawaii, with it’s sandy beaches, few predators and handsome surfer dudes is where she is headed.  Here big yellow smile captures the sun and holds it and her fashionable, floppy ears beckon sailors from near and far.  With her fiery hair, Springalina is ready for some hula and sun.

    You had me at “surfer dudes,” Corrine! Springaline is absolutely adorable, and, like most of us in New England, has survived to greet the more Spring-like temps of today, thankfully! I hope she finds a special surfer dude soon!
