A Beautiful February Day

Today was the most beautiful day. Not only were the temperatures in the 60’s but the sun was shining nearly all day long. Β It is also my son Luke’s birthday and Β we had a great time celebrating his special day with family and friends. 😊

I could not resist taking photos outdoors today. First up is Carney, my first NP and she is an early girl made in 1966. ❀

Carney is wearing a very beautiful dress made by Petrana. Β Her purple boots are from Sashapotamus and they have 8 individual buckles to give her a fun, spirited look.

Carney is a very sweet girl and I have missed dressing her up.  I love her large blue eyes. ❀

Next for us to see is Pearl, a 1966 graphic eyed NP. She is wearing a lovely dress made by Petrana. Her green leather shoes were made by Marti Murphy. 😊

I love the detailing on Petrana’s dress. ❀

Pearl is a very thoughtful girl and she loves to read. ❀

I would love to have an outfit like this to wear!

Our next little lady is Chloe, an early 1966 NP with deep blue eyes.  She is wearing a beautiful outfit made by Petrana.  Her boots were made by Ruthsdolls.  Chloe positioned her scarf as a sash for her dress since the weather was too warm to wear a coat and scarf.  I like the look! 😊

What a joy it was to be able to be outdoors and photograph the girls. Chloe enjoyed the sunshine too. 😊

Chloe would like to introduce the last lovely lady, her sister Ellen. Drum roll please……..

Here is Ellen, a later 66 NP with lovely graphic eyes and just a hint of eyelashes.   She is wearing a beautiful studio outfit by Ginny of a Passion for Sasha.  Her wonderful leather shoes were made by Marti Murphy. ❀

🌹 Ellen 🌹

I love this outfit with the ruffles at the neckline and cuffs.  It fits perfectly and the colors are lovely. ❀

This week on Facebook, the early Sasha dolls were featured to include photos of eye paintings up close.  I really enjoyed the photos.  So, next are a few photos of eye paintings of these four girls. 😊

Merry Christmas! Do You See What I See?

Four early 1966 girls are gathering to wish you a very Merry Christmas. πŸ™‚

image
Four unique redheaded girls. πŸ™‚

Sylvia’s hair is in a ponytail which looks nice with her “wings” on each side of her face.

The sweet Sylvia up close. πŸ™‚

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

image
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! πŸ™‚

image
My Pearl up close. ❀

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

By Early Morning Light

Image

image
The big beautiful sun is out today and shining in all of its glory! Yeah! πŸ™‚

image
I first thought of Adeline and how I wanted to take her photo wearing our newly acquired Karen Warnaka dress. Her olive green, leather shoes are from Sashapotamus. πŸ™‚

image
Adeline is a 1967 Trendon NP and I named her after my late and much loved grandmother. It seems just right that the heavenly rays are shining on us today. ❀

image
I thought it would be nice to see the first light of the day as it filters through the trees and warms us on this very crisp and frosty morning. πŸ™‚

image
It is interesting to see the different light on Adeline as the day wakes up around us. ❀

image
So I took a lot of photos to share with you. πŸ™‚

image
Adeline. πŸ™‚

image
A full length view for you to see. πŸ™‚

image
Adeline up close. I love her eyes. ❀

image
I love this outfit on Adeline. ❀

image
The lovely smocking. πŸ™‚

image
The lovely belt with snap closures and button accents. The dress details make for an exceptional garment. πŸ™‚

image
The knitted socks are perfect and the shoes worked out very well. πŸ™‚

image
A waterlogue image of dear Adeline. ❀

My grandmother Adeline’s middle name was Pearl. So it seemed very fitting this morning to bring with Adeline her sister Pearl. ❀

image
Pearl in the early morning light. ❀

image
Wisely, Pearl dressed warm this morning. πŸ˜‰

image
This lovely oufit was sold in two lots on Shelly’s site. I crossed my fingers that I would be in time to get both lots to join this lovely coat with the matching pants. πŸ™‚

image
The knitted hat and scarf came with the coat. They are perfect together. πŸ™‚

image
This knitted top and matching socks came with the pants. πŸ™‚

image
This beautiful outfit was made by Sasha Wardrobe. ❀

image
Pearl wearing her new outfit with ballet pink leather shoes from Sashapotamus. I have the perfect pair of brown boots for this set but I wanted to show these pretty matching socks. πŸ™‚

image
Pearl is a 1966 NP Trendon girl.   We took her hat off so you could see her pretty red hair. ❀

image
I love her pretty brown graphic eyes. ❀

image
We took a few photos with the coat removed. πŸ™‚

image
The sun is shining on Pearl. ❀

image
Pearl in pink though some say redheads should not wear pink, I always wore pink with my red hair and felt great wearing that color. Β Pearl likes pink too! πŸ˜‰

image
Pearl up close. πŸ™‚

image
Pearl in a pose. πŸ™‚

image
Pearl is getting a bit cold without her coat. 😦

image
“Please Mommy, may I put my coat on?” Yes, of course Pearl, let’s warm up! πŸ™‚

image
There, that is much better my dear Pearl. ❀

image
“Where is my sister Adeline?”

image
There she is! Now Adeline and Pearl are together again. πŸ™‚

image
Sisters. ❀

image
Adeline and Pearl want to thank you for visiting with them today. They hoped you enjoyed your time with us. πŸ™‚

image
They also are sending you hugs and happy wishes for a wonderful week to come! πŸ™‚

image
Neither girl wants to go back inside the house. It is a beautiful day here at Sasha Shangri-La and it is best to enjoy the day outdoors if you can. ❀

image
A final farewell photo. πŸ™‚ xxx

A parting gift of a waterlogue image of Adeline and Pearl. ❀

The under blouse was made by JoAnn Staricha. Pearl is happy to be outdoors in the warm sunshine. The rain finally let up and allowed us to go outdoors. πŸ™‚
