“Oh my, where am I? It seems I have been in the dark for a while but now, I am in a well lit place. Where am I?”
“Hello there, my name is Ryder. You are most welcome to Sasha Shangri-La and I am your new brother!”
“Hi and welcome dear Sis. My name is Little Dawn. I am overjoyed to see you in person. Mommy has showed us photos of you in happy anticipation of your arrival. We loved you even before your arrival!” said the sweet, little Dawn.
“Hi, I am your sister Peg. Ryder, Little Dawn and I are so happy to see you!”
“Hello and thank you kindly for your warm welcome wishes. I feel a bit out of place and must wonder where I am. Ryder, you said Sasha Shangri-La, is that in the UK or perhaps Germany?”
Ryder said, “No dear sister, you are in the USA. I remember when I traveled in a box like yours just last year when I came home from a visit with Auntie Lorraine and my close friend Henry in the UK.” Then Ryder climbed into the box showing his fond memory of the trip. This helped his new sister to feel much better so she sat down too. She said, Well, I have made the same trip too. How nice that we have shared similar experiences.”
Little Dawn and Peg go to their new sister to comfort her and to show their sisterly affection. Peg told her new sister that they were all from Germany originally.
Little Dawn explained that Mommy was so looking forward to her arrival. They showed her the outfit Mommy brought home from the Festival in Phoenix. It was made by Norvell Jones and was just for for the new sister. “Oh, my what a lovely short set! I just love it! It will be fun to change clothes and be ready to begin my new life.”
The girls are very happy to be together and are becoming close.

“Look, I am ready to play! How do I look?” Ryder told her that she looked perfect and ready to play!
Ryder suggested that they all climb into Mommy’s bag and they would surely be able to go outdoors to play. So, they all climbed inside and waited for Mommy to return.
Well, Mommy did return and outdoors everyone went to enjoy the day.
This is my Ryder, a 1960’s straight nose Gotz boy. He is wearing a Sashapotamas t-shirt, colorful shorts made by Auntie Lorraine and later Trendon sandals. I think he is a handsome boy.
Ryder is joined by Little Dawn, a 1960’s Gotz waif. She is particularly affectionate and kind and is the comforter of the group. I was fortunate to buy her from Dawn Law at the Sasha Festival in 2013. She is quite petite and well loved by all.
They are joined by their new sister and her name is Sarah.
Next, Peg lines up with the group. They liked playing on Daddy’s cart.
Peg is a 1960’s Gotz no nose that belonged to Jackie Hyatt. She is wearing a pretty outfit that was made by Jackie and I felt fortunate to find it at the Festival this year on Gayle Rotheim’s sales table. Peg was so happy to wear a new dress. Her shoes are made by Monica Jarpey and the socks are made by Jackie Hyatt.
This lovely girl is a 1970 Gotz no navel and it is true, she does not have a navel :). I have named her “Sarah” and she is the first no navel doll to join us here at Sasha Shangri-La. Her outfit is by Novell Jones and her red leather sandals are by Jean Jensen.
Another photo of Little Dawn. Her outfit was on Shelly’s site and I do not know the maker. Her leather shoes are by Ruth’s dolls.
Little Dawn and sweet Sarah sharing a sisterly moment.
Ryder, my only Gotz boy.
Sarah, Ryder and Little Dawn enjoying the pretty day!
Having great fun acting silly!

A final photo with Peg joining the group. We had a great, Gotz time today and we wish you a very happy weekend and week ahead too! Great Gotz hugs are coming from us to you! XXXX
