Hi! My name is Betsy. I live here at Sasha Shangri-La with my loving brother and sisters though I have been the only toddler. My sister, Gracie, acts like a toddler but Mummy said she really is a bebe with a toddler heart. ❤
I love Gracie so much. She holds my hand to show me she cares and she is a wonderful sister. ❤
Gracie is wearing a beautiful, new dress and shoes, socks, and hat made by Thu Cuc Faes who lives in Switzerland.
Gracie’s dress is blue like mine! I really like the red ladybug button on the front. I have butterflys on my dress. 🙂
Gracie, I love you! ❤
Gracie’s lovely outfit.
Mummy took this photo of me when I first arrived at Sasha Shangri-La. As much as I love everyone here, I have secretly, in my heart, dreamed of having a sister like me to play with and to love. ❤
Drum roll please….
Well, dreams do come true and please meet my sweet sister, Ellie. 🙂
Ellie is almost my twin. Mummy said we were both named Iona at one time. I feel like Ellie is my twin sister. ❤
Mummy shared that Ellie was made in 2001 in Germany at the Gotz doll factory just like me! She came to Sasha Shangri-La in her original outfit and tube which are safely stored.
Ellie has been redressed by Mummy in an pretty outfit found on Shelly’s site. Her leather shoes were made by Jean Jensen. You might be able to see the faint JJ marks on the soles of her shoes.
A pretty gingham ribbon seems to work well with Ellie’s head of beautiful curls.
Ellie toddling and on the move.
I gave Ellie a tiny puppy to hug. 🙂
Gracie welcomes Ellie. Gracie shares with Ellie that she is a toddler too just like Ellie and like me! Well, at least in Gracie’s mind, she is a toddler! Gracie says that she has to be a toddler since she gets around the farm more than anyone and a baby cannot walk, right?? Ellie believes Gracie and loves her with all of her heart. We all love Gracie! 🙂
Well, look here and how nice it is to see us three sisters together. 🙂
Gracie wants you to see that she has legs that do “toddle” very well! That is how she moves around when Mummy is not watching. 😉
Three sisters in a row sharing sisterly affection. 🙂
Loving sisters up close.

Ellie and I want Gracie to stand up but….
Gracie says let’s sit down to wave goodbye to everyone that has visited us.
We are also sending big hugs and well wishes for the week to come. 🙂
A parting, framed gift of dear Ellie, from me, Betsy, to everyone that loves toddlers. ❤
