MERRY CHRISTMAS to YOU ❤️🎄🎄❤️

Baby Sheila is wearing her new Christmas frock made by Marilyn Hotchkiss.  The beautiful mug made by Emma Bridgewater is a loving gift from a very dear friend and is a special treasure to receive at Christmas as we so miss and remember our son Lance. ❤️

We are very blessed to have an unexpected and unpredicted white Christmas. 🎄

A light dusting came overnight and it is a most welcome sight here on Cow Creek. We all so wanted a white Christmas but hardly dared to wish for one with the warmer temperatures we received lately. A delightful Christmas present. 🎄

Merry Christmas from all of us here at Sasha Shangri-La. Thank you for visiting with us. We hope your holiday is a wonderful time with family and friends and also a very healthy and happy one!     ❤️🎄🎄❤️ xxx

 

Babies, Babies, and more Babies

Photographing on an overcast day, I just took a few photos before the sky opened up and buckets of rain began to pour and it poured for quite a while too. We made it back inside just in time!

I am sharing a few more Festival finds in this post.  First, the unusual lavender Steiff  bear came home with me and I was happy to find him. Bears are just nice to cuddle.  Next, this Curly headed brunette baby charmed me from JoAnn Staricha’s sales table. I initially resisted but at the end of the sales’ room time, she was still there and so I happily adopted her.  She was wearing a long white dress and her purple dotted bow, so I redressed her in a purple dress, made by Sheila Foery.  I added her socks and white leather JJ shoes.

Please meet Baby Jo.  Baby Jo and bear are sitting in a favorite old chair placed on the new patio that Rick made just before my return from my overseas.

Hi there Baby Jo. ❤️

You have previously met Baby Don Don when Dawn Law curled his hair last year. He was excited because he went to the Festival.  I also added a blanket made by Granny Peggy which greatly improved the appearance of this old chair. 😊

Hi Baby Don Don! ❤️

Here is Baby Don Don modeling a new protoype outfit that Diane Duke made for the Festival. The display of Diane’s’ knitwear was amazing!

 

Next, please meet a dear, sweet little imp named Baby Sheila.  She is a waif with a bald head but Sheila Foery had great plans to make her a wonderful wig which she stitched Saturday night during the festivities. Baby Sheila came to me completely transformed  Sunday morning. How special she is. ❤️

Hello little sweetie. 💕

This little girl was an auction win. I won 3 auctions which consisted of this Baby and two outfits. This baby was donated by Peggy Livingston and her complete outfit was donated by Janet Myhill-Dabbs.  She is adorable!

 

Please meet “Baby”.  Baby also came with the cutest felt doll with yarn hair. What a darling pair. ❤️

A sweet group of babies! 💕💕💕💕

Baby Gracie also went to the Festival and is wearing a new romper made by Diane Duke.  Gracie had a wonderful time and reunited with a group of studio bebes and also reunited with the lovely ladies attending the Festival.  This Bebe is one of Gracie’s new friends and she is also wearing a new romper made by Diane. ❤️

All the babies and I want to thank you for visiting with us. We hope you have a great day and weekend to come. 😊 xxx
