We are experiencing extraordinary rainfall in July. It has rained every day and many days we have had major downpours along with the expected thunder and lightening. I am reminded of the old saying “Rain, rain go away…come again some other day!” Since I am not able to take photos outdoors, I have been playing with a new computer application that transforms a photograph into a work of artistic expression. Specifically, this program creates a “water” color expression of a photo and I have to say that this “water” medium is most appropriate at this time and it is also a wink and a nod towards our dreary weather. 😉 So, making the best of a bad weather situation, I hope you have a substantial sized cup of tea and/or coffee to sip while you sit back, relax and view this substantial sized post. I hope you enjoy these Sasha Shangri-La watercolor masterpieces. 😉 Abby, an A1 early studio girl. ❤ Amber, 1966 Gotz girl. ❤ Sylvia, 1966 NP girl. ❤ Heidi, Janet Myhill-Dabbs repaint, 1970’s Trendon girl. ❤ Finn, 1967 NP boy. ❤ Tink, Kelly Wenarsky repaint. ❤ Gwennie, BIII studio girl. ❤ Ryder, 1960’s Gotz straight nose boy. ❤ Zoey, 1967 NP girl. ❤ Claudia, 1968 Dungarees girl. ❤ Smootch, Janet Myhill-Dabbs studio doll rendition. ❤ Joy, 1966 NP girl. ❤ Ellie and Betsy, 2001 Gotz toddlers (Ionas). ❤ ❤ Drew, 1968 Trendon boy. ❤ Briana, 1965 Gotz girl. ❤ Gracie, studio bebe and Marie, BIII studio girl. ❤ Jessie, 1967 NP girl. ❤ Mae, 1966 Gotz girl. ❤ Faith, 1968 fringe girl. ❤ Emily, Trendon factory anomaly, blue eyed brunette. ❤ Hazel, Gotz no navel girl. ❤ Whitney, a glorious reroot with braiding by Sarah Willams. ❤ Peg, Gotz no nose. ❤ Jackie, 1970’s wide face gingham girl. ❤ Course dolls with bebe Gracie. ❤ Fozzie Bear with Lucy, Cassie Rogers repaint, Emma Flood reroot. ❤ Kim, factory anomaly, a Gregor with lashes. ❤ Trendon. ❤ Rena, Gotz Yamka. ❤ Adeline, 1967 NP girl. ❤ Val, 1968 waif Trendon girl. ❤ Brett, 1969 Trendon boy. ❤ Casey, 1969 Dungarees girl. ❤ Ebo, Shelly Baxter repaint. ❤ Tilly, 1967 NP girl. ❤ Fara, 1968 fringe girl. ❤ Claire, BIII studio girl. ❤ Chris, 1968 shorts boy. ❤ Sarah, 1970 Gotz no navel girl. ❤ Ellen, 1966-67 NP girl. ❤ Avania, Kelly Wenarsky repainted baby. ❤ Quinn, 1968 shorts boy. ❤ Diana, 1965/66 Gotz girl. ❤ Gertie, Janet Myhill-Dabbs repaint. ❤ Gracie, studio bebe. ❤ Mike, 1970’s Trendon boy. ❤ Marcie, 1970 Gotz no navel. ❤ Johhny, 2001 Gotz toddler (Erik) ❤ Polly, Nikki repaint. ❤ Chloe, 1966 NP girl. ❤ Lewis, 1968 Trendon boy. ❤ Duncan Hans, factory anomaly, blue eyed brunette boy. ❤ Carney, 1966 NP girl. ❤ Ben, BII studio boy. ❤ Gertie again, Janet Myhill-Dabbs repaint. ❤ Joey, 1970 PJ boy. ❤ Briana again, 1965 Gotz girl. ❤ Ryder again, Gotz straight nose boy. ❤ Carney again, 1966 NP girl. ❤ Max, Cassie Rogers repaint. ❤ Nancy, 1980’s Shelly Baxter repaint. ❤ Pearl, 1966 NP girl. ❤ Tassie and Sammie, Cassie Rogers repaints. ❤ ❤ A Sasha Gathering. ❤ Little Dawn, 1960’s Gotz girl. ❤ A peek at Gigi, a BIII studio girl soon to be introduced. ❤ Kate, Janet Myhill-Dabbs studio rendition. ❤ Ginny with llama, 1970’s gingham girl. ❤ Finn and Chloe again.

2015 A Happy New Year —It’s a Baby!
What better way to start a new year than by introducing a new baby? This sweet baby girl is Avania and she has been wonderfully repainted by Kelly Wenarsky. Avania began as a 1980’s baby and she now has newly painted and beautiful eyes, freckles, and a great Monique gold synthetic mohair wig with a great blending of colors. Precious baby girl and I am ver happy to adopt Avania, my first Kelly repaint. 🙂
Avania is signed and dated on her left foot. She came to Sasha Shangri-La wearing this cute outfit made by Alexissophie. 🙂
She also came with her very own snugglie, a terry cloth bunny with a white cotton tail of course!
Val is welcoming Avania and she just loves her new baby sister. 🙂
Val is explaining to Avania that there are other sister and brothers too that she will be meeting soon and that each and every one will love her! Avania is so happy to know she is loved! ❤
Jean can’t resist babies and so she also reaches out to Avania with great love and affection. ❤
We love you baby sister, dear Avania!! ❤
Avania is feeling very happy to be be with her loving sisters, Val and Jean. She loves them too! Avania sends her love to you too and She sends her big baby hugs and she wishes for you to have the bestest year in 2015 possible! 🙂 xxx
