Please Welcome Gertie and Heidi to Sasha Shangri-La

This is my darling Gertie that was repainted by Janet Myhill-Dabbs recently.  She is a twin to Janet’s “Edith” and they were both on display at the recent Sasha Celebration weekend in the UK.  Gertie has really touched my heart in a very special way. ❤

 

image
Gertie came to me in this lovely outfit and it is perfect with her coloring. ❤

image

A nice closer view of Gertie.  She was previously a Pinntucks girls before her repainting.  Janet dyed her wig and styled it into plaits which I love ❤

image
Gertie was barefooted so I added the hand knitted socks and nice leather JJ shoes.

image

A side view of Gertie.  Gertie was inspired by a vinyl girl that sold on ebay recently and she was handpainted by Sasha Morgenthaler. 🙂

image

A closer view of Gertie.  It was windy that day so please ignore the wayward hairs strands.

image

Another full length view of sweet Gertie. ❤

image

She looks nice with her plaits behind her shoulders too.  I am totally smitten and so I took many photos. ❤

image

A real close-up photo for you to see.  I am so amazed at Janet’s artistic talents and her other talents too. 🙂

image

This sweet girl is Heidi and she was previously a 70’s Trendon girl and Janet has wonderfully repainted her face. ❤

image

Some of you may have seen Heidi on facebook where Janet showed her in this farm pants outfit with duffle coat.  Also, some of you may have seen Heidi on display at the recent Sasha Celebration weekend.  Heidi’s eye painting was inspired by a very early Gotz girl that sold on ebay recently and that girl was wearing this outfit. 🙂

image
Heidi’s dress was made by Frances Trickett. If you look closely, you will see tiny little beads that line the neck and arm openings on this wonderful dress. Such nice detailing. Heidi’s white leather sandals were made by Jean Jensen. 🙂

I took a few photos of Heidi with Gertie. They both traveled to Sasha Shangri-La in the same box and have become great friends! 🙂

Hi there girls, are you taking-in your new surroundings? 😉

A final photo and both girls and I want to kindly thank you for visiting us here at Sasha Shangri-La.  We are sending you big hugs and happy wishes for a wonderful weekend to come! 🙂 xxx

The Beauty of Sasha Studio Dolls

Image

image
The beauty of a Sasha Morgenthaler studio doll is what first brought me to the wonderful world of collecting Sasha dolls.

image
This beauty is a Sasha studio doll with a “B” type, cloth body and a “III” type facemask. Her name is “Marie” and I never tire of looking at her beautiful, unique eyes, lovely expression and perfect human hair wig. ❤

image
Marie came with this original Sasha outfit.  It is a wonderful color for her.

image
A Sasha tag is always nice to see. 🙂

image
Marie is very dear to me. ❤

image
I hope you enjoy seeing Marie up close too.

image
Marie is totally devoted to Gracie and welcomes her baby sister to sit on her lap. 🙂

image
Sisters. ❤

image
Tender moments. ❤

image
Little Gracie with her doting, big sister Marie. ❤
