The Sasha Festival was fantastic. I am posting photos of the lovely things that I brought home with me.
My rescued pet, his bed and the crafts are shown above. The bag with the gray fabric is a cute hat to make and the bag in the bottom of the photo is a net to catch insects or maybe a butterfly.
The delightful Fiona’s bag was sewn together by my sweet daughter-in- Law Mollie. ❤️
A terrific denim Festival dress received plus fantastic brown leather sandals by Marti. Love the fringe!
Another wonderful Festival outfit received to include a great safari outfit, socks, and sturdy brown leather boots. Very smart!
This sweet lion outfit for a lucky Sasha baby was such a nice surprise. A wonderful gift for helping with the Dress a Sasha contest. Thank you dear Heidi. ❤️
A beautiful dress received during a hostess gift exchange.
A most useful Festival gift received on Sunday. Plus an invitation to next year’s Festival in Pittsburgh.
A handmade, lovely table gift received from hostess Laura Osterdyk.
A hostess gift from Laura Ward and me to those who sat at our table the first night. 😊
Cassie Rogers of Sashapotamus made these wonderful custom bags, and filled them with these goodies, for us to offer as a hostess gift. Each one had a t-shirt, a nature journal, and an insect in a see through container. I love it! Cassie personalized the back of the bag too. Thank you Cassie!
A wonderful auction win donated by Ellen Church. Beautiful!

Colorful Marti sandals I received in the gift exchange.
I bought in the sales room this gorgeous Scottie dog smocked dress made by Julie Ruleman.
Other new things bought in the sales room. On the left a Dollie Patch outfit that was on a new girl I adopted. The three dress sets on the bottom were made by Frances Tricket. The shorts above were made by JoAnn Staricha, the orange leather tie shoes made by Sheila, pretty sandals in the plastic bag made by Monica, purple leather shoes by Marti, and an orange print dress with pinafore also made by Marti.
Gorgeous shawls made by Diane Duke. They were quickly snapped up by happy studio dolls living here at Sasha Shangri-La.
This cheery corduroy dungaree set was gifted to me by Laura Osterdyk. I loved it on sight when I saw it on her studio doll. She kindly gave it to me. Fully lined too! Thank you Laura.

Shared dress pattern. A beautiful envelope isn’t it? I hope to try and sew it!
Laura O. made this dress and donated it to the raffle for Betty Jean. Tricia won the raffle and so kindly gifted me this sweet dress to remember Betty Jean. Thank you Tricia.
Beautiful girls that I adopted at the Festival. You have met Flora (on left) in a previous post but I am thrilled to say that Shelly (center) has returned to me. Shelly is a BIV studio doll that lived here before and was adopted by Cathy Himmel. Cathy recently asked about a studio doll living here named Nellie. Nellie was not for sale but Cathy and I talked about her and also about Shelly. Cathy already loved Nellie so much and I loved Shelly so much that we decided to have an exchange between us. I am over the moon to have Shelly back! Plus Cathy is very happy with Nellie who now is called Nell. Thank you Cathy!
I also adopted this beautiful Jackie Rydstrom rerooted girl on the right. Since she came in a winter outfit, I redressed her immediately in this beautiful outfit that I bought from Julie Ruleman in the sales room. She is wearing purple leather sandals from Sashapotamus. I have named her Candy.
Sasha Shangri-La is a much happier place since the Sasha Festival in Cincinnati. I am very grateful to Heidi for giving us a wonderful Sasha experience. Many thanks also to everyone that contributed to this happy event. ❤️🥰❤️
