This is Christmas Rose basking in the glow of the Christmas tree. Rose was carved and clothed by doll artist Judy Brown and came to live with us on Christmas Day 2011.
I was trying to think of a name that was Christmas-ish but not too obvious, and something pretty but not really lively. I sometimes find a pretty name in the scientific classification of a plant or animal (like my dolls Eugenia, Carya and Min), but Hellebore didn’t work at all for obvious reasons. She’ll fit right in with the dolls that have ordinary plant name like Tansy, and Fern. I know she will have a good time here with us.
