YOU ARE THE ORANGE OF MY EYE
It was thought that the pupil was a round object much like an orange (a piece of fruit). When you look at someone, their reflection appears in your pupil. So if someone is the 'orange of your eye', he or she is someone that you look at a lot and enjoy seeing.
You are the orange of my eye, I love you more than anything on earth!

Kokeshi (こけし, 小芥子 kokeshi), are simple wooden dolls with no arms or legs that have been crafted for more than 150 years as a toy for children. Japanese dolls, originally from the northeastern region (Tōhoku-chihō) of Japan. They are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face. The body often has floral and/or ring designs painted in red, black, and sometimes green, purple, blue, or yellow inks, and covered with a layer of wax. One characteristic of kokeshi dolls is their lack of arms or legs. Since the 1950s, kokeshi makers have signed their work, usually on the bottom and sometimes on the back.
