Mimi, Annie, Briana, and Diana are so excited to spend their first Christmas at Sasha Shangri-La. They cannot wait for Santa to arrive and they are enjoying this special Santa gourd. 🙂
A closer look at Santa. He is painted by artist Jessie Geesey and is a fine example of gourd folk art. 🙂
I have really connected to these girls and appreciate their very distinct looks and personalities. 🙂
Mimi is a ponytail Gotz adopted from Dee’s clan, Annie is an early 1965 Gotz girl with no mold line and found on Shelly’s site, Briana was adopted from Liss and Diana was from Shelly’s site. Both Briana and Diana were most likely made in 1965/66. ❤
A little holiday ribbon to play with helps to expend some of the Christmas energy that is building up each day as December 25th draws near and Santa arrives! Annie and Briana’s outfits were made by Ruthsdolls. Annie’s green suede slip-on shoes were gifted to me one Christmas by Jackie Hyatt and they are precious to me. I think Briana’s outfit was once in Kendal’s Sasha closet. 🙂
Pretty girls. 🙂
I think both of these lovely cord dresses were made by Ginny, at A Passion for Sasha. Their shoes are from Ruthsdolls. 🙂
Pretty girls. Diana is such a sweet, petite girl. 🙂

Lastly a waterlogue image of this festive group of Gotz girls. 🙂

Thank you Julie. Merry Christmas! 🙂 xxx
They are all such lovely Gotz girls Ginger, with their little dreamy expressions. I really love the Santa gourd too, such beautiful work xxx
H Janet and thank you. Their expressions are dreamy, what a perfect word. I love the painted gourds and hope to show a few more. No sunshine here but I will take photos anyway! 🙂 xxx
lovely to see mimi with her beautiful sisters …merry christmas ginger xxxx
Mimi is a delightful child and she sends you a big hug! I am happy you enjoyed the Gotz girls. Merry Christmas Sarah. 🙂 xxx
Such lovely girls – I hope Santa brings everything they wish for.
You have such great decorations Ginger, I love your gourd.
A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you.
Thank you Rosie. I am happy you enjoyed the post. I have a soft spot for painted gourds especially Santas. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 🙂 xxx
Gorgeous girls Ginger – I especially love the brunette with the ochre eyes – she reminds me a bit of my Connie. I have a blonde on my wish list – one day! They look like they are looking forward to Christmas very much.
Hi Lorraine and thank you. Briana does look a lot like your Connie. I look forward to seeing your blonde one day. Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family. 🙂 xxx
A gorgeous set of Gotz girls Ginger. They are all so different and have such nice faces.
Love their clothes , especially the mustard yellow cord dress by Ginny.
Th Gourd folk art is a very special Santa, thank you for sharing these gorgeous girls and your Santa with us. Hello Mimi 🙂 xxx
Thanks Dee. It is fun to dress the girls and I am really enjoying them and their pretty eyes and very silky hair. Mimi sends you a big hug! Glad you liked the Santa gourd. Ho Ho Ho! 🙂 xxx
Lovely Gotz girlies Ginger, thank you for sharing them. I do like older Gotz girls, there is something very special about them. And your girls are all dressed in very nice outfits too.
That gourd is interesting, my husband has mentioned many times about gourds that are grown just for decorating, we tried to grow some once but they didn’t get very big so we ended up giving up on them! This painted fellow is brilliant!
Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and that the New Year brings you everything you would want for yourself, but including good health and happiness 🙂
Big hugs Sharon xxx
Thank you Sharon. I really like the older Gotz girls too. These girls are recent additions to the Sasha family and they each have their own look which is nice. They are a delight to dress like all Sashas. 🙂
I love the gourd art and especially the pieces by Jessie Geesey. I will show a few other pieces painted by her soon. 🙂
Thank you for the happy wishes for Christmas and the New Year. I wish the same for you and that all of your wishes come true. I wish you and your family all the best health and happiness for 2016. Hugs coming your way! 🙂 xxx
Great to see this delightful group of my favourite Sashas, the Gotz dolls, with their totally unique and wonderful facial expressions! A rather later acquired taste to many Sasha collectors but to me it was love at first sight!
My two particular favourites here are the early yellowed eyed girls, Briana and Diana. The yellow eyed dolls are back on my wish list again, having stupidly parted with my original two (a blonde loose haired and a blonde pony-tailed) over the last couple of years.
I immediately noticed (before you had mentioned it) my ex-Ruthsdoll’s outfit, which was indeed very modern for the Sasha girls when I bought it MANY years ago, .You certainly seem to have bought a fair number of my outfits. Perhaps I should send you some photos on of any outfits that are leaving here which then allow me to buy my kids some new ones?
Like Denise my very favourite outfit today is the Passion 4 Sasha cord mustard .dress with those multicoloured socks and pampas green Mary-Jane shoes.
Wishing you and ALL your Sasha Dolls a very happy Holiday season, or as we here in the UK say….. A very happy Christmas and a healthy New Year full of yet more Sasha Doll collecting!
Hi Kendal and thank you for the lovely comments. I always learn something interesting and new from your comments which edify and educate my Sasha understandings. A teacher’s writings are a gift to receive. 🙂
I have parted with a few Sashas to adopt them out and then had later regrets. I look forward to seeing you find a Sasha or two on your wish list. It will be a happy day of celebration! 🙂
I do have many of your outfits and I affectionally call them part of my Kendal collection. I would love to see photos of outfits you are planning to sell. How exciting! 🙂
I love that mustard color too on these nicely tan Gotz girls. Everyone here at Sasha Shangri-La sends you and your Sasha family wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year. ❤ xxx
