A New Girl Arrives at Sasha Shangri-La ❤

Image

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! 😊

img_1282

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 ❤

img_1305

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? ❤

Gracie and Joanie together at Last 🌹

Hello! Remember me? I am Gracie!  I am wearing a dress made by Thu Cuc Faes and my teddy was knitted by Diane Duke.  My socks and shoes are original I think. They were on me as long as I can remember. 😊

img_5365

Mummy said I could post on her blog today and be with Joanie, my newest sister. She took our photos inside today because it is very cold outside. Here we go!!!

img_5366

It is my pleasure to introduce Joanie wearing her new outfit. Mommy found the outfit on eBay. The pale blue knitted socks belong to Joanie and came with her when she arrived here at Sasha Shangri-La. The blue leather shoes were made by Ruthsdolls. ❤

This is a photo of the outfit Mummy found on eBay. The blue top fits Joanie perfectly and is vintage and made of a wonderful crepe material.

Joanie’s dress has the Sasha label. 🌹

I love Joanie very much but I can hardly reach her!

img_5373

Look I am taller now! 😊

img_5371

The better to hug Joanie with. ❤

img_5372

I love you Joanie with all my Gracie heart. ❤

Let’s look at a few photos of Joanie wearing her new outfit. 😊

A very pretty hat. 😊

😊   Isn’t Joanie pretty?  She sings lullabies to me at nap time. ❤

img_1053

😊  Joanie sings like an angel. 😇

😊  I think she looks like an angel too. 😇

I hope you enjoyed seeing Joanie in her new outfit. We have had the best time being with you.  Thank you so much for visiting with us today. 🌹

We are sending you “Gracie and Joanie” hugs and happy wishes for the upcoming week. Take care everyone and hug your Sasha dolls!  😊 xxx

Hello It’s Me….Joanie ❤

Image

The newest Sasha studio doll addition to Sasha Shangri-La is the sweetest of little girls named Joanie.  She is a pure delight and she sings daily which lifts me up especially now that I am home most of each day.

Joanie arrived in a green checked studio dress that is without a label but appears to be original. Gwennie immediately extended her sisterly love to Joanie.  Both girls have had some repairs in places on their lovely faces which is a sure sign that these older girls have been truly loved by others over the years. I am continuing their love story.  ❤

I took a few photos of Joanie when she arrived last Fall.

image

This pair of dear ones really brighten my day. 😊

image

Sisters forever. ❤

A nice photo of the pair and a waterlogue image too.

While the girls were modeling, sweet Joanie noticed that Gwennie’s dress was older and showed signs of wear. So she offered her dress to Gwennie! What a nice and generous gesture towards her sister. 😊

img_5304

So pretty Gwennie tried on Joanie’s dress and I think it looks lovely on her. Do you agree?

img_5305

You might remember that Gwennie was my first Sasha doll and I am very attached to her. I adopted her from Marie Morgan who was very kind and allowed me to pay for her by a layaway plan. Gwennie is a B-III studio doll. The B designates a cloth body and the III designates the type of face mold. Sasha designed four different face molds for her child dolls. ❤

Gwennie loves her dress very much but she immediately asked me to find a nice outfit for Joanie to wear so they both would have new outfits. 😊

img_5308

I asked the very talented Janet Myhill-Dabbs to help us find an outfit. She found this wonderful studio-length, vintage dress that was among studio/course doll clothing she had acquired and it is perfect with Joanie’s green eyes. Janet knitted her cardigan and fabulous hat and made her lovely felt shoes. I added her onesie and her knitted socks and now Joanie has a new, fantastic and unique outfit. Janet suggested to put her braids up on each side which is a perfect enhancement to her pretty face and outfit. 🌹

Speaking of faces, Joanie’s face mold is a type I.  Since she has a cloth body, she is a B-I studio doll.

A close up view of the dress details. I love this fabric which is silk I believe and I really like the unusual fabric design . ❤

img_5291

Lovely matching shoes and warm socks. 😊

img_5292

The cardigan is very pretty and the hat is fantastic! I love the Pom Pom on the bottom. ❤

img_5313

Joanie is very happy to have her new outfit. I was so touched by her kindness and generosity that I thought I would keep my eyes open for a Sasha studio outfit for Joanie. Guess what? I recently won an auction of a studio outfit and it arrived today in the mail! 😊

Here is a peek of Joanie’s outfit. She has not seen it yet. Do you think she will like it?  Let me know if I should surprise Joanie with this outfit and hat too. 🌹

The blue top is not tagged but is nicely made. 😊
