An “A” Number One Addition

Some of you may remember this painting of my Mom that was painted from a black and white photograph during WWII.  My great uncle had it painted while he was stationed in England.  He had brown eyes so I think the artist thought my Mom did too. However, my Mom and my Grandmother both had blue eyes.  Other than the eye color, the painting is very accurate and resembles Mom, Mary Adeline.  My Grandmother’s name was Adeline Pearl.  Please let me introduce a new Sasha studio doll who is named Addy after my Mom and Grandmother.


Addy is an AI studio doll and I love her beautiful face and painting.  She reminds me of my Mom as a young girl.

Addy came wearing this sweet outfit.

Addy is a tall girl of 20 inches.

Addy’s wig is wool yarn and styled into nice full plaits.

A few close up photos of Addy.

I have loved cloth dolls all of my life and finding this beautiful girl feels like finding a treasure!

Addy is standing next to her sister Abby, an AI studio doll that has lived here at Sasha Shangri-La for several years now.  They are both about the same height.  It is so nice to see them together.

I dressed Addy in a pair of blue corduroy overalls made by Thu Cuc Faes but kept her shirt and duffle coat.

Recently, Ruth of Ruth’s dolls listed several beautiful studio doll outfits for sale. I bought this pretty plaid dress with red leather belt for Addy.  She is looking festive with her ornament in hand.

Hello pretty Addy.  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season.

Ruth included this beautiful pinafore too.  What a beautiful outfit!

With Sasha’s birthday just a few days ago on November 30th, I want to thank her once again for bringing such beauty into our lives.

Brigitte came over to say hello to Addy and she brought her Santa ornament with her. They both want to thank you for visiting us today and for helping Addy to feel welcomed.

We are sending you hugs and happy wishes for the week to come. xxx

  1. How wonderful to own TWO ‘AI’ Studio Dolls, Abby, blonde hair and brown eyes and now Addy, with her brunette hair and blue eyes, which delightfully replicate your mother and grandmother’s own personal colouring’s.
    I have also noticed their different hand shapes and which I intend to look up and read about in the Sasha information books, when time allows.
    Addy’s new Ruthsdolls Tartan dress so reminds me of my first BI Studio Girl’s original outfit…if you can remember it?
    They definitely look to have already become the very best of friends.

    • Thank you Kendal. I am on cloud nine with Addy’s arrival. She arrived a couple of months ago and I am still pinching myself. She reminds me so much of both Mom and Grandmother. Addy is making friends quickly and she is especially close to Abby. 😊

      I do remember that BI studio outfit and I think she is a blonde with green eyes and named Erin. She now lives with Jackie. I thought the dress was similar to Erin’s too and extra nice with the pinafore so to have two different looking outfits. I have ordered some shoes from Ruth too which will be here shortly. ❤️ xxx

  2. Addy is just wonderful, a perfect compliment to Abby as Kendal said. I just love her face, as you know she has been a big influence on the SCW upcoming project. I love that she now has a compilment of outfits at her disposal, she is a treasure for sure.

    • Thank you Steve. I think they are a great pair of sisters. My Grandmother had the portrait of Mom on her bedroom wall and I remember it so very well as I grew up. I would ask her about it over and over again over my young years and she was always so kind and patient and would tell and retell me that war time story. Then after she passed away, my Mom put it on her wall. Now, it is on my wall. I have wonderful memories of this portrait and its interesting story told and retold by my Grandmother. ❤️ Xxx

  3. What a lovely doll, and yes, very similar to your dear mum. I love the painting from the photo too.
    I really like the yarn hair on these dolls, it works very well with the cloth. And such pretty outfits too.
    Happy Christmas Ginger, I hope Santa is good to you 🙂
    Big hugs and lots of love
    Sharon xxxx

    • Thank you dear Sharon. I like the yarn hair too. I think it really makes the dolls very special. I am glad you like the outfits and they are really fun to dress.

      Merry Christmas to you Sharon and your family. I hope Santa 🎅🏻 brings you all lots of goodies. Sending you much love and hugs. ❤️ xxx

  4. What a lovely tribute to your Mum and Grandmother is your new girl Addy, she’s also a lovely edition to your Cow Creek Sasha’s.
    Two A1 girls are a treat to see together thank you for sharing her with us.
    I hope you’ve had a lovely week and also that the week ahead is wonderful and full of Christmas cheer 🙂 xxx
