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

 

Another Christmas, Long Ago

Image

image
Christmas always brings to the forefront of my mind, thoughts of Christmas past.  I thought I would share this most precious of my possessions, a photograph of my beloved Grandfather, Harold Long. I am five years old in the photo and I loved every moment spent with this gentle and kind soul. He passed away when I was seven but my recollection of us together is amazingly clear and strong.  What a gift! ❤

Happy holidays everyone and I hope you enjoy your blessings with your families and friends! Much love! ❤

A Christmas Gift of a Sasha Doll

Image

image
This little lady made a Sasha dream come true for me. I had yet to own a 1967 NP with red hair and now, thanks to my dear husband, that dream has come true.  She made a safe trip from Germany and arrived in about seven days no worse for her journey and happy to be liberated from the box. 🙂

image
She came to me wearing a dungarees outfit which is nice to have and is safely stored away.  Her previous owner sent unexpected and delightful Christmas gifts with her which are absolutely perfect for Christmas.  Please excuse my photo taken on a patterned quilt. I was so excited when I opened the wrapped gifts that I was lucky to have been able to remember to take a photo! The wooden elf ornaments are adorable and such a thoughtful addition. The beautiful knitted red sweater has a satin ribbon woven around the waistline and it ties into a bow for a nice feminine touch. The red gingham dress has a full skirt with a bottom ruffle. I love the white collar which looks especailly nice with her sweater.  A very pretty outfit! 🙂

image
Time for a few photos around the Christmas tree.  Look, a sock monkey!

image
The lovely red leather shoes and socks were made by Ruth’s dolls. 🙂

image
I hope you like how I styled her hair which has been trimmed to a longer bob length. The ribbon was from her Christmas package. ❤

image
Ellen was one of the first girls to say hello and she had to retrieve her shoes and socks from her new sister because they go with her outfit.  We found a nice pair of red leather boots for her new sister to wear. 🙂

image
The boots were made by Jean Jensen. ❤

image
Sylvia extended a warm welcome to her new sister.   Sylvia is usually very shy but she was noticably happy to meet her new sister. 🙂

image
A pair of reds wearing red!

Tilly is next to say hello and gives a warm welcome to her sister from the Sasha Shangri-La family. 🙂

image
Smile for the camera girls! 😉

image
Adeline is also very happy to meet her sister. 🙂

Girls ready for Christmas fun!

A close view of my Christmas girl. She then whispered to me her name, it is Zoey. ❤

Another view of the lovely Zoey for you to see. ❤

As I write this, it is now Christmas in the UK and all of us here want to share a Christmas card photo with you.  This little lady is the newest addition to the Sasha Shangri-La family and a Christmas gift from my dear husband.   She was born in the UK in 1967 and she is celebrating the holiday season with us.   I will share more photos of her soon. ❤

Merry Christmas and have a wonderful and blessed holiday with your family and friends! 🙂 xxx

A Colorful and Happy Christmas Eve

Image

image
A very happy Christmas Eve greetings from Ebo, a handsome Shelly repaint, Whitney, a gorgeous Sarah reroot, and Polly, a lovely Nikki repaint. 🙂

image
Both girls are wearing festive holiday frocks made by Lorraine Tyler. Whitney’s turquoise leather shoes were made by Sarah Williams and Polly’s orange leather shoes were made by an unknown maker.

image
Ebo’s outfit was made by Joan Wilson and his black leather boots were made by Jean Jensen.

image
A closer view of Whitney.  I added a turquoise ribbon to her lovely hair. ❤

image
Polly came wearing this wig though styled differently. I thought a nice side braid would be pretty with a red bow. 🙂

image
Sending you hugs and happy wishes that you have a wonderful Christmas Eve! Christmas is only a day away. 🙂 xxx

Adeline’s Christmas Dress

Image

image
Adeline is very happy to model her new Christmas outfit made by Karen Warnaka. I love Karen’s dresses with the beautiful smocking and her amazing wool jackets and coats. This outfit was made for sweet Adeline to wear for Christmas. ❤

image
Adeline is a 1967 English production NP.   I love her beautiful brown eyes and jet black hair. ❤

image
The wool jacket fits her perfectly. The silver heart buttons are so nice to see.

image
Lovely color for Adeline.  The flowers are a very soft and pretty addition. 🙂

image
Adeline’s red leather shoes are made by Jean Jensen. ❤
