Two New Arrivals and My 100th Blog Post!

image
I thought it would be a very nice way to kick off the introductions of two new additions to the Sasha Shangri-La family by posting their cheery little faces on my 100th blog post, a notable milestone!  So, I am popping the cork of celebration by first introducing the petite Marcie. Marcie was adopted from the loving home of Ellen Church. She is a 1970 Gotz no navel with beautiful blue eyes and remarkable red hair. ❀

image
Marcie came in her original blue cord farm pant outfit with white blouse and white leather sandals. Ellen kindly added this wonderful blue sweater knitted by Christine Durand. It really brings out the blue of Marcie’s eyes. πŸ™‚

image
Ellen also included the information and photos posted on Shelly’s site in 2008 when Ellen adopted her. It is so nice to have information about a doll’s history. πŸ™‚

Blue is a very good color for Marcie. I will be redressing her soon and showing her on the blog with some of her Gotz sisters. πŸ™‚

image
I just love her hair styling and the sheer volume of her hair, along with this shade of red, is a delight!!! ❀

The next four photos were taken by Ellen and I wanted to share them so you could see Marcie so beautifully redressed.

I hope you have enjoyed meeting Marcie.  I just love her! ❀

 

The second addition is a very different kind of Sasha doll repainted by Kelly Wenarsky. Kelly named her “Sepia” and she is marked and dated on her foot. Kelly wrote that she is a 1980’s Sasha doll, (English production), and said that she was a “unique being” and a study of color. The next three photos were taken by Kelly and you can see the care-free creation that Kelly has put forward. She dressed her in a slip and bloomers that she dyed to support her having more of an ethereal or elfish persona. I was so taken in with this beautiful child doll, that a nick name immediately came to me and so I affectionately call her “Tink”, a derivative of the well known “Tinker Bell” and very befitting. πŸ˜‰

I recently purchased a beautiful dress made by Pine Street Studio and the coloring of the outfit I thought would be just right for Tink.

image
This dress is so nicely made of linen and with the perfect addition of a velvet waist sash along with a pair of coordinated bloomers. πŸ™‚

image
I added a headband to “tame” Tink’s hair a bit. πŸ˜‰

image
But the back of her hair remains wild and wispy! πŸ˜‰

Tink easily found a puppy friend. All of the animal friends here on the farm were immediately drawn to Tink. They feel very safe and connected to Tink and very loved by her.  A very unique kinship. ❀

image
A touching moment. πŸ™‚

Tink’s well made brown leather shoes are by Betsy May and her striped knitted socks were found on Shelly’s site. πŸ™‚

A last photo of Tink and I hope you have enjoyed viewing this 100th blog post for Sasha Shangri-La plus the two new Sasha dolls that are well loved here on the farm. We thank you for visiting and we are all sending you loving hugs and happy wishes for a wonderful week to come! πŸ™‚ xxx

    • Hi Sharon and thank you! So very nice that you like the new girls and it is always nice to hear from you. Yes, the first 100 posts seemed to go by quickly and now on to the next 100!! πŸ™‚ xxx

  6. Two super new red headed dolls to help you celebrate your 100th blogpost.

    Congratulations and very well done. Always enjoy visiting you and your ever increasing Sasha Doll family here to see just what you’ve been up to.
    BTW have you had a complete head count of late in the various categories?

    (Have always loved it when my dolls bought a little bit of their past history, including their previous owner’s names, with them…. and I do so miss Pinestreetstudio’s regularly eBay listed OOAK outfits.)

    PS. I daren’t begin to think what YOU will REWARD yourself WITH when you reach ‘my soon to be published 750th post on my WordPress blog (not sure just how many there were on my previous Blogspot one before I changed over on account of the difficulty their followers were having trying to leave comments on all the Blogspot blogs.)

    Keep up,the good work!

    • Thanks Kendal! I have loved your blog posts ever since I knew they were there! They really have inspired me and led me to try a blog myself and so I am very thankful to you. ❀ I cannot imagine 750+ posts but I am so glad that you continue to post and always please the viewers. πŸ™‚

      I am also glad you liked the two new redheaded girls and I do not have a headcount at this time. Yikes! That might be dangerous! ;). I really am behind with the baby head count. Hopefully I will get a handle soon! Thank you for the lovely comments which are always appreciated. πŸ™‚ xxx
