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

Have a Little Bit of Faith


I have neglected my lovely Faith!  I have been blog writing about other Sasha dolls and most of them were new arrivals highlighting the happy holidays.  Because of this, I thoroughly enjoyed dressing Faith in this delightful Charlie Brown outfit.   I was lucky to find this outfit on Shelly’s wonderful site. 🙂

Faith is a 1968 fringe girl and her eyes are hand painted. Most of her fringe has blended with her longer locks and I love her hair styled just as it is. ❤

Faith came to me in her birthday suit and I have had a lot of fun dressing her in different outfits over the years. 🙂

Faith’s eyes are very beautiful. ❤

I thought of putting tights on Faith but decided to leave her with socks and boots since her legs are such a lovely tan and they look nice with her mini skirt. 🙂

Faith has a nice, very full head of hair.

Another view of Faith’s fun outfit. 🙂

A pink puppy catches Faith’s attention. 🙂

Finn and Faith have long been brother and sister here at Sasha Shangri-La.   Finn’s pup is named “Fetch”. ❤

Her brother Finn is one year older and he is a non philtrum boy made in 1967.  His outfit was a “helper” at the 2014 festival that I was lucky to win!  I removed the matching boggin to better show Finn’s hair. 🙂

A happy pair! 🙂

A final photo of Faith. I hoped you enjoyed seeing her and I wish you a wonderful weekend!  Hugs are coming to you! 🙂 xxx
