Gracie’s Gingham Gathering



Hello all, this is Gracie with great news! First, Mummy is taking me to the Sasha Festival in Minnesota! Yay!

Second, I asked Mummy if I could wear my gingham dress and she said yes! Yay!

And third, I asked Mummy if we could go outdoors today and gather up my sisters that are wearing gingham dresses and she said yes! Triple yay!!

So, here we go!

My my first sister is Sara. A beautiful NP with hand painted eyes by Sara Doggart.

When Sara came to Sasha Shangri-La, she was wearing a non factory dress.  As a result, we are not certain what outfit she would have worn from the factory.  Mummy had this wide skirt gingham outfit and so it now belongs to Sara. I hope you like these photos of Sara.


Next is is my sister Chloe. She is a 1966 brunette NP with deep blue eyes.

Chloe came to Sasha Shangri-La wearing a pretty pink dress and, over time, Mummy found this wide skirt, factory gingham dress just for her. I hope you like Chloe’s photos.

Next is big sis Alaine with her pretty hand painted eyes.

Alaine came to Sasha Shangri-La in her original gingham outfit plus her original gold tag.  She is a 1968 fringe girl.  Here are a few photos of Alaine. I hope you like them.

The next sister is Faith. I love Faith so much especially when she reads to me.

Faith came to Sasha Shangri-La without any clothes! Brrrrr…  Now she is wearing a wide skirt mini-check gingham dress that Mummy bought for her. Faith is an early 1968 fringe girl and we have learned that the mini check was made later in 1968.  So this dress was probably not one that Faith would have worn from the factory but Faith likes it and so do all of us here on the farm.   I hope you like these photos of Faith.


Clare is the next gingham sister for you to see.

Clare came to Sasha Shangri-La also redressed. Mummy  found this wide skirt gingham outfit for her. Clare is a 1968 fringe girl and she has a wider face. Here are a few photos of Clare in gingham. I hope you like them.

Last, is my new sister Jenn. Jenn just came to Sasha Shangri-La recently.

Jenn came to Cow Creek wearing this original gingham outfit with its narrower skirt.  She also came in her original crayon tube. Jenn is a 1969 side-part.  I hope you like her photos.  I gave her a soft bear to love.

The next photos show the gingham girls in groups.

This is my favorite photo!  I hope you liked this post.  All the gingham girls and I want to thank you for visiting with us today.  We are sending you hugs and happy wishes for a wonderful week ahead. xxx

The Waterlogue images are for you to enjoy.


Clare in the Pink


A quick post today to show Clare in a pretty, pale pink dress found on Shelly’s site.  Underneath, there is a sleeveless dress that acts as a slip. It has a pink top and white bottom. Also, there are pretty pink petit pants with a lace trim on the legs.  This dress/ outfit spoke to me because I remember wearing a similar one to a birthday party when I was 5 years old. A very happy memory and I love the dress!


Shelly’s photo of the outfit.

Her pretty leather shoes were made by Marti Murphy.

A sweet bear to play with and enjoy makes for a happy day.

Clare’s hair is longer in the back.

Have a wonderful day. Thank you for visiting Sasha Shangri-La. xxx

Sasha Shangri-La’s First Born in 2018


Please meet this very sweet wide faced fringe girl that has just made a journey across the pond and she is now free from her wrappings.  She is overjoyed to be here today!   I redressed her in this warm and toasty corduroy outfit made by Jackie Hyatt and a lovely knitted sweater by Christine Durand.

I added a pair of pretty knitted socks and dark olive leather Sashapotamus shoes with bright pink ties.  After the ribbons were placed in her hair, I only added her cow puppet to play with. ❤️


A close up photo.

Very nice eye and brow detailing. ❤️

What is your name little one?  Please tell Mommy.

Mommy, you know my name is Clare. 😊

Boy it is sure cold outside. Mommy said it is best to stay indoors. Brrrrrrr.  I took my coat off, okay?

I hope we can go for a walk soon.  I love playing outdoors! 😊

Clare and I both thank you for visiting with us today. We hope you enjoyed this post. ❤️

We are sending you hugs and wishes for a very Happy New Year! ❤️

Bye bye everyone! I hope to see you again soon!  😊 xxx
