A Hannah Hello

Image

You might remember Hannah a graphic eyed NP with very nice red hair.

Hannah is wearing a beautiful cardigan made by the very talented Diane Duke.  I love the hearts and the colors and it fits Hannah perfectly. ❤

I braided Hannah’s hair first with the braids covering her ears and then I tried braiding her plaits behind her ears.  I thought she looked prettier with her ears showing so I left them laid back and added pink and white checked ribbons.

Hannah up close.

Her shirt and checked trousers are made by unknown sewers. Her fantastic pink leather shoes are made by Noreen.

We took these first few photos in front of a newer shed out behind the house to see how they looked.

The last blog post of Hannah was taken this past Winter and it was so freezing and windy outdoors and honestly, the photos did not show her at her best. Today’s post will hopefully remedy the images from that frigid day.

Hannah on a pretty Spring day. The temperatures today are in the 60’s but the sky is cloudy.  We finally broke free from the rain and snow we were experiencing nearly every day for weeks. The past few days have been glorious!

We moved back to the old shed and used a towel to cover the damp block.

A couple of close up photos of Hannah.

A very sweet girl.  We hope you have enjoyed this post.

Hannah and I both thank you for visiting with us today.

We are sending you hugs and happy wishes for the week to come. 😊 xxx

Beautiful Knits on a Warm Winter’s Day

Image

Our weather has been unseasonably warm and also very rainy. Each day since I have retired has been cloudy and overcast with only very short lived and occasional breaks in the clouds to allow a ray or two of sunshine to cheer us here at Sasha Shangri-La.

Today I jumped up to take outdoor photos when I saw the sunshine, but alas, it had disappeared by the time I grabbed the dolls, the camera and went outside. So I took photos on the front porch and made the best of this non-rainy, limited sunshine, breezy day. 😊

 

First up is the lovely Sylvia and she is very happy to model her lovely knitted cardigan made by Linda Simpson. I was lucky to snap it up at the Sasha Celebration Weekend last May. Her corduroy slacks are by Sashapotamus and her leather boots are by Ruthsdolls. Sylvia’s ponytail hair style allows you to see her beautiful cardigan. ❤

image

Sylvia is a very early Sasha NP made in 1966 and she has detailed, hand-painted brown eyes with the palest of blue highlights on her lids. ❤

A very pretty girl. 🌹

Next is Hannah and she is a graphic eyed NP girl with lovely red hair. She is wearing a wonderful knitted sweater made by Christine Durand. I bought it at the Sasha Festival in Rochester last summer. Her black corduroy trousers are made by an unknown seamstress and her black leather slip on shoes were made by Ruthsdolls.

image

Hannah particularly likes the sweet sheep crossing her tummy. 😉

image

I arranged her hair to each side so you can see more of the knitted design. 😊

image

Thank you Hannah. ❤

image

Last is Jessie and she is a 1967 NP with a nice, longer bobbed hair style. I arranged her hair off of her shoulders to best show her lovely knitted cardigan with adorable ducks and it was made by Rosie Laird.  It has a very nice matching hat and gloves too! The maker of her trousers is unknown.

image

Her leather boots were made by Ruthsdolls. 😊

The pretty Jessie up close. ❤

Jessie loves her new outfit very much. ❤

Hannah, Jessie and Sylvia together as sisters. 😊

They want to thank you for stopping by today and spending time with us. They are sending you hugs and happy wishes for a lovely weekend and week to come. 😊 xxx

Joy has her hair plaited and is wearing a festive outfit made by Ruthsdolls.

I love Joy’s blue eyes. ❤

image
Pearl is wearing a lovely smocked dress by Karen Warnaka. The weather is unseasonably warm today, in the 60’s, so short sleeves are comfortable and no jackets! 🙂

My Pearl up close. ❤

Hannah is wearing her smocked dress by Karen Warnaka and your can see it better without the jacket and the crocheted collar. 🙂

Happy Holidays – Hannah’s Homecoming

Image

image
Hello, my name is Hannah. I have just arrived at Sasha Shangri-La.  My Mommy has gifted me this new dress to wear for Christmas. It was made by Karn Warnaka and it fits me perfectly. 🙂

image
This is my sister Audrey. Audrey was the first sister to greet me when I arrived. Mommy said my stringing is very loose and so she used a stand to help me “stand” up. 🙂

image
Mommy removed the stand when Audrey volunteered to help me stand up and Audrey said she would catch me if I would fall. I think Audrey is just the dearest of sisters. ❤
Audrey was born in 1968 and I was born in 1966. Mommy says I am an NP with graphic eyes but I am not certain what that all means right now. I do know that I am a bit taller than Audrey and I should be since I am an older, big sister. Isn’t my Audrey beautiful? I love her festive red knitted outfit with white bolero.  Her stripy socks and red leather shoes are by Ruthsdolls.   Audrey has a present for me! ❤

image
Mommy told me that Audrey and I are the first of the holiday posts for Sasha Shangri-La. That makes us both very happy! 🙂

image
My red leather shoes say “JJ” on the bottom and Mommy said that Jean Jensen made them. They fit me just right. I am on the stand again since Audrey stepped aside for this photo. She wanted you to see just me since I am newly adopted. I love my sister Audrey. ❤

image
Mommy took the rest of this posts photos indoors. The entire weekend was overcast with no sunshine. We hope this unusual warm weather will cool down and the sun will shine too. 🙂

image
Hi, it’s me, Hannah. 🙂

image
I love my new home here on the farm situated on Cow Creek, at Sasha Shangri-La. ❤

image
Mommy and I want to thank you for visiting with us today. We know how very busy you are especially at this time of year and yet, you took some time to spend with us. We are very, very grateful. 🙂

image
We hope you enjoyed your visit and will visit again very soon. 🙂

image
Mommy and I along with everyone living here on the farm are all sending you big hugs and happy wishes for today and the week to come. 🙂 xxx

In parting, waterlogue images of Hannah to enjoy. ❤

Happy Christmas and joyous holiday tidings to everyone! ❤
