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. ❤

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.

Her leather boots were made by Ruthsdolls. 😊

Jessie loves her new outfit very much. ❤

Brunettes and Barn

A very beautiful, past weekend with warm, sunny days led me to take Jessie and Adeline outdoors for photos.  I used one of the barns as a rustic backdrop to contrast with these fine and lovely girls and their outfits.

Jessie is wearing a new, pretty pink and red Ruthsdolls outfit that I was lucky to find on Shelly’s site.  I added pale pink knitted socks and found red leather shoes made by Ruthsdolls that came with a Christmas outfit.  I borrowed them to go with Jessie’s new outfit. 🙂

image
Adeline, on the right, is wearing a dress made by Maureen Hallenbeck and I had previously shown Adeline in this outfit.  I have not changed it because I do love it on Adeline and she looks so nice next to Jessie and in her new outfit. 🙂

 

image
Jessie and Adeline are both 1967 NPs from the English Production. I love that they both have their own “look” and also love Jessie’s bobbed hair cut. ❤

Sisters having good conversation together. 🙂

Adeline holds her favorite “lovie” toy which is a soft, sock monkey. 🙂

Jessie shown alone but somehow, she does not look as sad as perhaps she did when she first came to the farm. 😉
