Tulip - A Spring Doll
The flower Tulip is grown here in Britain during Spring. It originated from Persia and Turkey but is more commonly thought of as a Dutch flower. Tulip means 'perfect love'.
Tulip colours have different meanings. Red - true love, yellow - hopeless love, orange - warmth & happiness, white - forgiveness, pink - happiness & confidence. Purple is used for royalty. The centre of the tulip is the heart and a striped tulip is said to represent beautiful eyes!
I have used colours associated with spring in my doll design: greens, yellow and pink. My Tulip is pink - she is full of happiness & confidence. The green represents the stalk and leaves and the yellow the sun!
Tulip has a detachable pinafore dress, which has a picot edging collar and hem.
Tulip wears a pink & yellow striped jumper with yellow cuffs.
She has a detachable spring bonnet with a large green bow.
