A New Girl Arrives at Sasha Shangri-La ❤

Some of you may have seen this rare girl on Shelly’s site and you may have wondered where she went after leaving Sasha Doll UK.  She is a Gotz girl but with her eye painting by Sasha Morgenthaler herself.  I immediately fell in love with her. ❤

The first three photos of this post were taken by Shelly. 😊

I love Sasha’s studio doll paintings and this girl was no exception.  She is a very special, miniature studio-like doll. ❤

After she arrived, I immediately took photos of her on this coral colored blanket. ❤

My hands were shaking while taking the first photos. Such anticipation! 😊

I think I was in shock with excitement for quite a while after she arrived. Thank goodness that I did hear her whisper that her name is Morgen. ❤

Next I took a few photos of Morgen in her original brown cord dress with brown leather shoes. ❤

❤ Hello Morgen ❤

Welcome to Sasha Shangri-La dear one. ❤

❤ Morgen ❤

Next, I gave her back her ponytail to see how it would look.  Morgen loved playing in the doll room. 😊

She has the little curl at the base of her neck. Plus the nice side wings.

I really like her ponytail. 😊

Then, I dressed Morgen in a studio style dress by Dolliepatch.  I think she looks very pretty in this outfit.

I hope you enjoyed meeting Morgen today.  Thank you for visiting with us. ❤

I styled Morgen’s hair back into her ponytail and then she joined her sisters Gracie, Joanie, and Gwennie.  They love to share stories of when they came alive as they were painted by Sasha Morgenthaler in Switzerland long ago.  Wouldn’t it have been wonderful to have been there to see the dolls come to life in her extraordinarily, talented hands? ❤

Yippee Yippee……It’s Me…..Gracie

Hi everyone, it’s me Gracie!!!  I am whispering to you because Mummy is in the next room and I don’t want her to hear me talking on the blog but I think something is up here at Sasha Shangri-La!

image

Mummy just redressed me in my pretty turquoise outfit made by Thu Cuc Faes.  Plus she put this suitcase on the bed and that means she is going somewhere!!! 😊

image

Plus Mummy has been talking a lot about the Sasha Festival to be held in Rochester, New York sometime very soon. 😊

image

So…..I am thinking that there is a good chance that I might get to go with Mummy to the Festival!!!  I think I can fit nicely in this side pocket of her case…..she would not see me! 😊

image

Or maybe I should slide in this zipper pouch and hide away….image

Oh jeepers….Mummy is coming back in the room….I want to be a very good girl for Mummy. Maybe she will take me with her. Oh I hope so! 😊

imageHi Mummy!  I love you so much and in my heart of hearts, I want to go with you to Rochester and to be able to be with you and to see everyone at the Festival.  Oh please Mummy, pretty, pretty please with whip cream and a candy heart on top and all just for you!  I love you so much! ❤️

image

Guess what everybody?  My sweet Mummy said I can go to the Festival in Rochester and I will meet so many nice people.  I am so happy and my heart feels bigger than I am!!!! ❤️

imageThank you all for visiting today with me, Gracie, and I am waving bye bye and sending you all big hugs and kisses!  Plus I wish you all a very happy weekend and week to come.  I hope to see you inRochester and if not, maybe I will sneak a few blog posts to you, my blog friends that are not coming this time.  Mummy cannot watch the blog all of the time.  I am sure she will not mind at all. 😉

Sending much love, Gracie ❤️ xxx

Happy Thanksgiving!

“Happy Thanksgiving to you!  It’s me, Gracie!  Mummy said we will have turkey for dinner if I can find one here on the farm!” 🙂

image
“I am not certain where I should look for a turkey except in the refrigerator….maybe if I concentrate really hard…”

image
“Oh my, here he is! Hello there Tom Turkey! You are so cute, don’t worry, you are safe with me, I am Gracie!”

image
I Gracie, and Tom Turkey, and all of us here at Sasha Shangri-La wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!!  We are very thankful for our blessings. We are sending happy wishes and hugs to you! ❤ xxx

Hi, It’s Me! Gracie! Psssssst, Don’t Tell Mummy Pretty, Pretty, Please!!

Image

Hi everyone, it is me, Gracie! I am really having fun here at the Sasha Shangri-La farm playing with my brothers and sisters each and every day!  Mummy bought me a new dress that was made by Auntie Diane Duke in the UK. But Mummy made me wait ever so long, an eternity really, to open the shipping package.  Mummy would reassure me that she loves me and that she wants me to see my new dress but then she would kiss me, gently put me in my chair, and tell me goodbye.  Mummy would then leave and go someplace called “work”.  She spends ever so much time there at “work” and she is not here with me!   I really do not think it is fair to all of us here on the farm because we want Mummy to be with us each and every day and all of the time!

So, I am writing today and Mummy is not here at all.  She left her Ipad on her bed and well, you all know by now that I have memorized her passwords, so I am blog posting for my dear sweet Mummy to help free up her time and then she will be with us even more!!   We love and miss you Mummy, come home please, please. Pretty please with sugar on top! ❤

image
Here I am again and I want you to see how Mummy “reads” her books most of the time. This is an Ipad and Mummy purchases audible books that are narrated and she listens to them often. Mummy says it helps her because she listens on her drive to “work” and back home plus Mummy listens at home because she says it frees-up her eyes and hands up so that she can spend more time with me–Gracie!!!  Oh, and also with everyone else living here too!  It is hard to sit still while Mummy is away but I do try so very, very hard to be a good little girl….I just know Mummy will be so happy that I posted her photos for her! 🙂

image
Mummy is listening to a mystery book by M.C. Beaton and about Agatha Raisin and the reader is Penelope Keith.  I love to hear her voice very much and the sound of it reminds me of other happy places I have been before Mummy adopted me. 🙂

Mummy did dress me in this one piece undergarment, socks and shoes and these were all made by Thu Cuc Faes.  She put this clip in my hair so I am getting an idea of the colors that I will see in my new dress! I can hardly wait!!!!! 🙂

image
Just lookie!!!  Mummy opened the package and look at the pretty colors in my new dress!  Plus, look, look, a present from Auntie Diane just for me, Gracie!   How very sweet of Auntie Diane!  Thank you! ❤

image
Mummy took this close up photo so you can see how happy I am! 🙂

image
I asked Mummy if I could open my present first and she said yes!!!   I wonder what is inside???

image
Oh my, it is a perfect, pink teddy bear and it is just for me! I love this teddy so very much! Thank you Auntie Diane!!! ❤

image
The gift bag is so very pretty with its floral pattern and I think it makes a lovely hat! Don’t you??? 🙂

image
I feel like such a big girl wearing my new hat!  How happy am I. 🙂

image
Here is my new dress! Isn’t it so very pretty and it is so soft too! 🙂

image
I am such a happy Gracie now! Look at Auntie Diane’s tag.  It has a flower on it!  I love all of my new things very much! ❤

image

Mummy asked me to put my new hat away for some photos that will show my pretty  hair clip. 🙂

image
My pink teddy feels so soft too. I am one happy girl! 🙂

image
Mummy says that she loves taking photos of me!  I like it too! 🙂

image
A last photo taken on Mummy’s bed. Next, we are going to show a few photos of me standing up! 🙂

image
Hi again, it’s me Gracie and I am standing up like a big girl! 🙂

image
Isn’t it nice how good you feel inside when you wear a new dress? I feel very happy! 🙂

image
A nice full length view of me Gracie! 🙂

image
Teddy and I want to thank you for visiting us today and for not telling Mummy! I think she will be so happy when she comes home from “work” and sees how her little Gracie has helped her once again!  Maybe we will “read” a book together! 🙂

image
Teddy and I are sending you big hugs and loving wishes for the rest of the week to come.  Much love coming from us to you!!  I hope Mummy comes home soon! ❤ xxx

Psssssst……It’s Me…..Gracie!

Hi everyone! Mummy is in the kitchen again and it sure smells wonderful here at Sasha Shangri-La.  With Mummy away, it’s time for another “Gracie” blog post!  We received a big, wonderful box from Thu Cuc Faes wo lives in Switzerland.  Mummy was so happy to get this box and look at my new outfit that was found inside! 🙂

image
My brother Bennie has a new outfit too. We look like twins! 🙂

(Bennie is a BII Sasha studio doll and Gracie is a Sasha studio bebe)

 

 

image
I love Bennie! Everyone calls him Ben except me. He is my Bennie! ❤

image
Bennie and me, Gracie!  We can play outdoors now, yipee!!!

image
When I stand next to Bennie like this, I am taller than he is! 🙂

image
But, when Bennie stands up, he is a bit taller than me…don’t we look nice in our new outfits?  They fit perfectly!

image
Please hold me Bennie, I feel so wee next to you.  I need a hug!

image
Well, Bennie found my new red wool, hooded duffle coat to help me feel better. 🙂

image
You know what? Bennie is so smart, I do feel better! 🙂

image
I just love sitting on Bennie’s lap. ❤

image
He is so big and strong.  Bennie told me that God made him strong to help others that are weaker. I know this is true, I can feel it in my heart. ❤

image
But most if all, Bennie is kind and sweet and he loves me. ❤

image
Bennie found this nice wooden sled and it fits me perfectly! 🙂

image
He promised to take me outdoors to ride the sled when we get a good snow. I can’t wait to have fun in the snow. 🙂

image
A last photo of Bennie and me and we thank you for visiting us here at Sasha Shangri-La. We send you big “Bennie” hugs and sweet “Gracie” kisses too! ❤ xxxooo
