Gertie and Lizzy are so happy it is Christmas time! They both are holding beautiful Christmas stockings gifted to them by their Auntie Janet. ❀

image
This lovely gourd was painted by Jessie Geesey. I love that he is a blue Santa. πŸ™‚

image
Gertie is excited! Santa Claus is coming tonight! πŸ™‚

image
“I have been a very good girl Santa” said Gertie. πŸ™‚

image
Lizzy is excited too! πŸ™‚

image
“I have been a good girl too Santa” said Lizzy. πŸ™‚

Brigitte loves this large Santa gourd also painted by Jesse Geesey. Β Brigitte’s knitted stocking and bear were from Diane Duke last year at Christmas time. πŸ™‚

image
Brigitte has also been a very good girl this year. πŸ™‚

A Gotz Girl Gathering Waiting for Santa

Image

image
Mimi, Annie, Briana, and Diana are so excited to spend their first Christmas at Sasha Shangri-La. They cannot wait for Santa to arrive and they are enjoying this special Santa gourd. πŸ™‚

image
A closer look at Santa. He is painted by artist Jessie Geesey and is a fine example of gourd folk art. πŸ™‚

image
I have really connected to these girls and appreciate their very distinct looks and personalities. πŸ™‚

image
Mimi is a ponytail Gotz adopted from Dee’s clan, Annie is an early 1965 Gotz girl with no mold line and found on Shelly’s site, Briana was adopted from Liss and Diana was from Shelly’s site. Both Briana and Diana were most likely made in 1965/66. ❀

image
A little holiday ribbon to play with helps to expend some of the Christmas energy that is building up each day as December 25th draws near and Santa arrives! Β  Annie and Briana’s outfits were made by Ruthsdolls. Annie’s green suede slip-on shoes were gifted to me one Christmas by Jackie Hyatt and they are precious to me. I think Briana’s outfit was once in Kendal’s Sasha closet. πŸ™‚

image
Pretty girls. πŸ™‚

image
I think both of these lovely cord dresses were made by Ginny, at A Passion for Sasha. Their shoes are from Ruthsdolls. πŸ™‚

image
Pretty girls. Diana is such a sweet, petite girl. πŸ™‚
