Spring Cleaning



Spring is here
all is in bloom,
and little doll Millie
is holding a broom.

She is giving the playroom
a good old clean,
going over and under
and in-between.

The grumpy bear says:
"Well, if you must,
but what is wrong
with a little dust?

Millie doesn't listen,
she is on a mission,
she polishes the floor,
fluffs up the cushion.

The bear tries again:
"You go a bit far,
we do like things 
just as they are."

Millie says to the bear:
"You really are sweet,
now stop complaining 
and move your feet."

"Open the window,
let in the air,
and enjoy the season
you silly old bear!"


Featured: Corkscrew doll Millicent,
in her little shoebox home.
She knows her own mind and speaks it too.

If she runs out of things to clean in her little house, Millie would be welcome to clean at my house )))! I like a girl who isn’t afraid to speak her mind! (Actually she is so wonderful, she’d be loved here even if she didn’t do a bit of work! ). .... Seriously Amalia, that is an adorable poem as well as the cutest doll and doll house ever.

Dewena said...

Millicent knows that everyone is happier when the house is fluffed up and clean! You go, Millie!

Veronica Lee said...

That little curtain is so cute! But of course, everything else is very lovely and adorable!

Happy Thursday, Amalia!

Amalia, you have an attractive blog, with photos of beautiful things and happy lyrics!
I saw some crocheted things and I would like to ask you, do you know a way to crochet like Jacquard? I would be glad if you knew and told me.

Have a nice day!
