Yesterday was the first warm, sunny day since last year and so I took Joy, Chloe, Kendal, and Tilly outside to take photos. I dressed them in pretty, bright outfits and charged my camera. The photos did not turn out as well as I had hoped. They do show some interesting shadows and so I will post them.

I photograped each girl standing on our garden angel plant stand with the thought that they would look pretty with the purple pansies that I had not yet planted in the garden. Β I still have much weeding to do and would rather play with Sashas of course. Afterwards, I viewed these photos and it was really unexpected that the girls looked like they have wings! So I am sharing their angelic images.

I do not think the photos captured the beauty of the outfits and so I took additional photos indoors hoping to show them better. I will combine them and cross my fingers that you will enjoy the variety. Β This is a rather long post. Β πŸ™‚

First up is Joy wearing a lovely Vintage Sasha outfit by Sarah. She is standing next to our watering can and a wild violet has crept in among the mulch.

A side view of Joy. She has very thick hair. I just braided it for the first time. Joy is an early English production girl from 1966.

Joy wearing Sarah’s lovely outfit. I love Sarah’s leather shoes that always fit perfectly πŸ™‚

image

So often we do not see the very special touches given to our Sasha’s under garments. This lovely trimming on the pants just had to be shown–thank you Sarah πŸ™‚

image

A last close up photo of Joy. I love how the blue color in the dress enhances her big blue eyes πŸ™‚

image

Next is the beautiful Kendal wearing part of a Carol Mitchell studio doll outfit creation. Kendal is a 1967 English production NP.

This pinny makes a wonderful sun dress for Kendal to wear on warm days. Her sandals are made by Jean Jensen.

I could not pass up the chance to show you the beautiful pants and the inset detailing. My sewing skills are very limited and I so admire the skilled and creative abilities demonstrated by our talented Sasha designers.

Chloe is next and she is wearing the rest of Carol Mitchell’s studio ensemble. Her shoes are by Ruthsdolls.

image

A different angle. The colors in the dress are very bright and beautiful. The sun affected my photo and does not show the colors well.

image

So, I took indoor photos of Chloe in this lovely dress.

image

Her pants are a neat lime green color with dots and it is perfect with her dress.

image

A close up of sweet Chloe. She is a 1966 English production NP and my first brunette. Her eyes are a very deep blue.

image

I topped off Chloe’s dress with the pinny to show her wearing Carol’s studio dress completely. I changed her shoes to the JJ sandals because the checked slippers were not quite the right color for the pinny.

Tilly posing outdoors by the watering can. She is wearing a star dress made by Lorraine Tyler. I just love this dress on Tilly. Her lime green leather shoes were made by Jean Jensen.

image

A bit of a breeze and Tilly standing strong.

Have a great week everyone and thank you for visiting Sasha Shangri-La Β πŸ™‚ xxxx

  1. A lovely bunch of girls Ginger, and yes, looking very ‘sun kissed’…..Sashas do sun kissed so well with their tanned ‘skin’!!! I’m glad you’re getting some sunshine, long may it continue, especially if it means you can share your beautiful Sashas with us!
    Big hugs Sharon xx

  2. I think that we’d consider all your dolls here as ‘angels’ even before they had stepped into the angel plant holder for their photoshoot to give them the golden wings that they duly deserve!
    Great idea and use of the planter prop! Well done.
    Special love to Kendal from Kendal.

  3. Lovely group of girls Ginger I do love the studio style outfits on the Sasha’s. I particularly like the one with the lime green long pants, great bright pattern and colours in that one.
    The little Angel plant holder is so sweet and just perfect for Sasha πŸ™‚

  4. You have such a lovely family of Sashas, Ginger. (That Tilly does have a little “something-something” going on.) Their outfits are awesome from their hair ribbons down to their shoes and sandals. They do look like little angels; so pretty in the bright sunshine! (But where is Finn? We will all need a Finn fix before too long πŸ™‚

    Thank you for sharing them!

    xxoo
