Homecoming for Sarah

image
“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?”

image
“Hello there, my name is Ryder. You are most welcome to Sasha Shangri-La and I am your new brother!”

image
“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.

image
“Hi, I am your sister Peg.   Ryder, Little Dawn and I are so happy to see you!”

image
“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?”

image
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.”

image
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.

image
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.”

image
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!

image
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.

image
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.

image
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.

image
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.

image
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.

image
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.

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

  1. Always such excitement when a new member arrives and what a super welcome from the other three Gotz Dolls. Obviously these four are going to be firm friends and have a great time together.

    • Thank you Kendal! Yes, I agree that they are going to have a great time together. The Gotz children are fewer in numbers here but they are much loved and bring a great diversity to a Sasha family! 🙂 xxx

  2. How lovely that you have had a new arrival and a special one at that. I t was very nice of Ryder to share his experiences with her and thus comfort her. They all look like they are going to be great friends and have lots of fun and games together.

  3. Welcome to the no navel club Ginger 🙂 I must warn you that one no navel is never enough! lol Sarah looks like she’s going to love living in the US with her new family.
    Norvel’s shorts set is lovely and looks so nice on Sarah along with the red sandals , they all look like they are ready to enjoy playtime outdoors.
    Your four Gotz kids look really good together 🙂 xxx

    • Thanks Dee! I do hold you largely responsible for Sarah’s adoption because I have loved seeing your girls in their beautiful outfits with their sweet faces beaming at the world. 🙂 They are just delightful and even better in person. Thank you Dee! 🙂 xxx

  4. A lovely new arrival Ginger, congratulations, she’s really sweet looking! You have a great bunch of Gotz kids there, and all very handsome I have to say! I look forward to seeing more of Sarah on here in the future!
    Big hugs Sharon xxx
