2023 Spring Photo Contest Winners


Spring has sprinkled its magic dust, and with it comes the announcement of the winners of our 2023 Hello Spring Photo Contest! We were blown away by the number of beautiful and creative entries we received, each showcasing the unique ways in which individuals are bringing the season and Easter holiday into their homes. From enchanting centerpiece arrangements to charming outdoor displays among spring’s vibrant blooms, our contest was brimming with inspiration. We spotted some of our very favorite Annalee dolls, both new and vintage, in the seasonal showcases, adding a playful touch to the festivities. It was a tough decision, but after much merriment and laughter, and steadfast deliberation, the elves finally chose a few winning entries that truly embody the spirit of spring.

Before we unveil the winners, we want to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in our spring decorating photo contest. We were taken back by the outpouring of creativity and passion that you all brought to the table. Seeing the beautiful displays that you created, full of colors, textures, and playful details, was truly a delight for us. We hope you had as much fun decorating and sharing your photos with us as we did admiring them. But with out further ado, congratulations to all the winners. gift card prizes are being sent — so check your email.

Jeffery used vintage catalog images to adorn his walls with large removable wall stickers and even a framed print — made complete with a glowing egg in the fireplace, detailed wreath, and an Easter tree.

Congratulations, Jeffrey L.! You are a true artist with an incredible eye for detail. Winning our spring photo contest for the second year in a row is a remarkable achievement that speaks volumes about your talent and creativity. Your collection of Annalee dolls is impressive, and the way you bring them to life in your photos is nothing short of magical. The magical world of Easter characters you create is simply enchanting.
