Drew Welcomes New Brunette Boys to Sasha Shangri-La

Image

image
Drew is a handsome 1968 Trendon boy with NP style eyes. We have been trying to find his puppy but he must be hiding. So Drew said this would be a good time to give the newly arrived boys a puppy to love and play with on the farm. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Drew’s wonderful sweater was knitted by Diane Duke who sells on Etsy. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Drew is a very thoughtful boy! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
His distressed leather boots were made by Lisa in the UK. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Well, here is Brodie dressed in a Kaffe Fassettย designed sweater with matching hat and hand knitted by Diane Duke. I love Diane’s knitted treasures! ย Drew is so happy to greet Brodie. He told me earlier that he thought for a long time that I was only adopting girls. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Drew brings a sweet puppy for Brodie to love. ย Brodie’s leather boots were made by Jean Jensen. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
“Thank you Drew, I will take good care of him.” said Brodie. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy brothers. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Bronson looks very handsome in his new outfit. ๐Ÿ™‚

Welcome to the family Bronson. Your puppy is so cute! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Bronson is fitting in very well with his brothers. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Drew pauses to say hello toย Nico. ย Nico has been here on the farm for a while but has yet to be introduced. Nico is a 1967 brunette Trendon NP. ย Nico came to Sasha Shangri-La carrying this sweet lion and he loves to play with him. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Drew said to Nico, “Let me officially welcome you to Sasha Shangri-La and give you back your lion to love.” โค

image
“Thanks Drew! I do wish we could go outdoors but it is rainy today.” ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

image
Nico’s sweater and matching hat are another Kaffe Fassettย design and hand knitted by Diane. His leather boots were made by Jean Jensen. ๐Ÿ™‚

Nico is a very cute boy too! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Welcome dear Nico! โค

Golden Girls……Ga Ga for Gotz

Image

image
These are the earlier, golden eyed Gotz girls that live here at Sasha Shangri-La. โค

image
This sweet girl has been introduced before and her name is Diana. She is dressed in a Ruthsdolls outfit with an added bolero. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Next is the confident Amber and she has also been introduced before. She is wearing a dress made by Frances Tricket. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
You may remember this lovely girl named Mae. Her dress was made by Jadzia. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
The lone brunette is the beautiful Briana and she is wearing a new dress by Molly and leather sandals by Paula of 4-Angels. Oh how I love those brows! โค

image
This very beautiful and early redheaded girl has a no mold line torso which makes her my earliest Gotz girl. Her name is Rae and she is newly adopted. Her dress was made by Hagnolly and her t-shirt was bought from Sashapotamus. Her checked fabric shoes were made by Ruthsdolls. โค

image
This lovely and very early girl also has a no mold line torso. Her dress has a tiny tag that informs “Made in France”. Her rose colored soft leather shoes were from Sashapotamus. Her name is Annie and she is also newly adopted. โค

image
The redheaded girls look very different from one another and that is easy to see when you put them beside each other. Amber is a 1966 girl with a small head and Rae is a 1965 girl with a large head. I really love the hand painting of the eyes and brows on the 60’s Gotz dolls. Each girl is very unique in appearance and personality too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

image
The blonde golden girls Diana, Mae and Annie. ย They are also very different from one another in appearance. Annie is the earliest girl and was made inย 1965. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
A happy trio! ๐Ÿ™‚

imageAnother trio photo. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
A few photos of Briana. ย I love her new butterfly dress made by Molly. ย I added a butterfly hairclip too. โค

image
Briana’s leather sandals were made by Paula of 4-Angels. A fun flower accent. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Another photo of sweet Briana. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Hello Rae! ย I thought to take photos angled from the side. Rae’s hair is very long and silky. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
A lovely full view of Rae. ย She is a very kind girl and she loves to read. ๐Ÿ˜‰

image
I really love the soft and silky hair on all of these golden girls. This shade of red is so very nice too! โค

image
Annie is a pretty girl. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
I wonder what she may be thinking about? ๐Ÿ˜‰

image
A full length view of Annie for you to see. ๐Ÿ™‚

imageIn closing, a watercolor of Rae generated by the computer. Rae and I both thank you for visiting us here at Sasha Shangri-La and we hope you enjoyed this Golden Girl post. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Annie and I are sending you Sasha hugs and happy wishes for a wonderful weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

Briana

Image

image
Every day has been rainy lately but I took a few photos in between drops yesterday. Briana is a new addition to the Sasha Shangri-La family. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Briana is a yellow eyed Gotz girl with dainty lashes and was made in 1965. ย She is wearing an original Gotz outfit. โค

image
The rain came and back indoors we went! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

image
Briana’s hair is very soft and silky. ๐Ÿ™‚

A close up photo of pretty Briana. โค

Thank you for visiting Sasha Shangri-La. ย Briana and I are sending you hugs and wishing you all a beautiful week to come. ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

Ra Ra for Gracie and No Ra Ra for Ellie

Image

image
Hi everyone, my name is Gracie! I have missed writing on the blog lately and Mummy changed her password. So, I am writing today with Mummy’s blessing to share with you some of the new outfits we received here at Sasha Shangri-La that were made by the very talented Sharon Humphreys. I am wearing my first ever ra-ra outfit and I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Do you like my dotted socks? They are so soft and fit me perfectly.

image
Mummy asked Auntie Sharon to make two toddler outfits for girls and one for a boy. When the outfits arrived, I just knew that one of them was for me, Gracie! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Here is a full view of my new prettyย outfit!

image
Yummy cupcakes!!! I wish I had a real cupcake. These are super nice especially since they cannot be eaten and so, will always be there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

image
Oh no, it is my sweet sister, Ellie. She is crying because she does not have a ra-ra outfit to wear. She said that Betsy and Johnny put their new outfits on and there was no outfit left for her to wear. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

image
I feel so bad and I tell Ellie that she can have my ra-ra outfit.ย  Dear, sweet Ellie told me that she loves me so very much that she could not wear my ra-ra outfit because she knows how much I love it. So, I remember another new outfit that did not fit me and I ask dear Ellie if she would like to try it on. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Ellie is very shy but she said she would like to see it. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
See Ellie, here are the pretty white tights and look at this pretty dress that is just your size. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Look Ellie, I think these new shoes are perfect for your new dress and tights. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Ellie, look at the dress tag, it says it was made with love by the Doll Works. I think it is very special to have a dress that was made with love. โค

image
Ellie is so excited. She said “Look, the tights and shoes fit me perfectly.” ๐Ÿ™‚

image
“I sure hope the dress fits me too!” Ellie shared.

image
I told Ellie that the dress fits perfectly and she looks pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Ellie shares that she loves her new outfit even though it is not a ra-ra outfit. โค

image
Ellie and I are happy sisters and we are now going to join our sister Betsy and brother Johnny oudoors. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Well, here we are outdoors and sitting on Dad’s new fishing boat. It was his birthday present and he is so happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
It is so nice to be together and be outdoors on a beautiful day.

image
Don’t I look pretty in my new outfit?

image
Johnny is waving hello. He loves his outfit that Sharon has made just for him. What a darling little doggie and the pants fit him perfectly. Mummy said she loved the little elastic in the waistline which helped to fit him better. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Johnny wanted to show you all his new socks too. They match his shirt and he loves them very much. โค

image
Look at sweet Betsy sitting up high and wearing her new ra-ra outfit. What a pretty green skirt and top with a bee hive, flower, a butterfly and a bow too! Betsy says she loves her socks too. I think we all love Auntie Sharon’s socks and outfits very much indeed! Thank you Auntie Sharon! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
A photo of just us girls. Johnny did not mind at all, he would rather be fishing with Dad! ๐Ÿ˜‰

image
We are waving to you all. Oh what a happy day for us toddlers at Sasha Shangri-La! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
We are sending big hugs to you and we thank you for visiting us. We hope you have a wonderful week to come! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

image
p.s. It’s me Gracie and I wanted to send extra big hugs to you all and I want to say that I am just so very happy to live here with my brothers and sisters and we all love each other very much. We all especially love Mummy and Daddy. Oh happy days!

Please Welcome Gertie and Heidi to Sasha Shangri-La

Image

 

image

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

 

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

image

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

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

image

A side view of Gertie.ย  Gertie was inspired by a vinyl girl that sold on ebay recently and she was handpainted by Sasha Morgenthaler. ๐Ÿ™‚

image

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

image

Another full length view of sweet Gertie. โค

image

She looks nice with her plaits behind her shoulders too.ย  I am totally smitten and so I took many photos. โค

image

A real close-up photo for you to see.ย  I am so amazed at Janet’s artistic talents and her other talents too. ๐Ÿ™‚

image

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

image

Some of you may have seen Heidi on facebook where Janet showed her in this farm pants outfit with duffle coat.ย  Also, some of you may have seen Heidi on display at the recent Sasha Celebration weekend.ย  Heidi’s eye painting was inspired by a very early Gotz girl that sold on ebay recently and that girl was wearing this outfit. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Heidi’s dress was made by Frances Trickett. If you look closely, you will see tiny little beads that lineย the neck and arm openings on this wonderful dress. Such nice detailing. Heidi’s white leather sandals were made by Jean Jensen. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
A closer view of Heidi’s pretty face. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚
