I Love Abby …… I Also Love Abby

Abby is a lovely A-I Sasha Studio doll made in the earlier days of doll making by Sasha Morgenthaler.  Her face was painted by Sasha and I think she is beautiful.  I just love Abby. ❤

Abby is wearing a floral studio dress that Janet Myhill-Dabbs graciously allowed me to buy while I was visiting in England.  You may remember that Gwennie modeled this dress earlier on the blog and it was lovely on her but a bit big for her.  When Janet visited, she suggested that I try the dress on Abby since Abby is a bit bigger than Gwennie.  Well, Janet was spot on and this dress looks like it was made just for Abby!  Wonderful to find a perfect dress for Abby. 🙂

The lovely Abby who is very, very happy with her new dress. 🙂

During the 2016 Sasha Festival, I met Ellen Church and it was so nice to meet her after years of being internet friends.  Ellen had a beautiful Kilt girl for sale that was minty and in her original outfit and so beautiful.  I have not adopted a Kilt girl before though I have admired them and I always have admired Ellen’s dolls.  So, as you might guess, I adopted the Kilt girl.:)

Please meet the beautiful and newest member of the Sasha Shangri-La family.  Please meet Abby. ❤

I at first thought about changing this dear girl’s name.  After all, I have a Sasha doll named Abby, right?

image

So it did not seem to make sense to have two Sasha dolls named Abby.  So I thought of selecting maybe a new name like Gabby or Tabby or maybe a name entirely different and new…..

image

And then she whispered to me that her name is Abby and that she loves her name very much.  Well, after looking at that sweet face, hearing her sweet whisper, and giving thought to having two Abby’s, I wholeheartedly agreed with her that her name was and is Abby.  I love that name too!   So, why change it? 😉

Abby is modeling my third auction win at the Festival which is a very pretty dress made and donated by Millie Dingham.  I teamed the dress with smokey pink leather shoes that were made by Jean Jensen and hand knitted socks found on Shelly’s site. ❤

The back of Millie’s dresses are as beautiful as the front of her dresses. Wonderful. 🙂

Abby’s pretty pants for you to see. 🙂

Dear Abby, please meet your new little sister, Abby. ❤

image

The Abby sisters together and they immediately bonded as loving sisters.  The big sister Abby said “Look Mummy, we both have blonde plaits!  We look just like sisters, don’t we?”

image

I answered quickly, “Yes dear Abby, you do look like sisters and in fact, loving sisters and best friends too!”

All is wonderful here at Sasha Shangri-La! 🙂 xxx
