Holly Hobbie

Do you remember the Holly Hobbie dolls?

Denise Holly Ulinskas marred Douglas Hobbie in 1964. In the late 60s, she created the Holly Hobbie character and sold the image to American Greetings cards. The beautiful watercolor paintings struck a chord with Americans, and the image of the bonneted little girl in the patchwork dress quickly became ubiquitous.

First of all, I didn’t know that the doll was actually named after a person.

Secondly, I did not have one of these dolls growing up.

I remember lunch boxes, TV trays, T-shirts, blankets and books with Holly Hobbie on it.

It seems I remember things like this when I see an old friend’s post on Facebook.
