A New Arrival to Sasha Shangri-La

Image

Please welcome the newest arrival to Sasha Shangri-La.  Prior to living in Switzerland, this beautiful studio girl lived in the Netherlands. She came from a loving home and a very kind lady. I am privileged to provide this dear one a new home and family here on Cow Creek. Since she was unnamed, I have named her “Celine” meaning sky or heaven. I think she is heavenly indeed.  ❤️

 

I took these photos quickly and will take better ones in the future. I wanted to share her right away because I am so happy. 😊

Hello Celine!

Sadly, Celine’s foot markings have almost entirely worn away.  I can make out the “S” in Sasha.  I think that Celine is made of hard plastic.  She does show some wear and discoloration in places but overall she is is great condition. 😊

Her jacket’s label. I love her outfit. ❤️

Finn is our number one greeter here on Cow Creek. He is very infatuated with Celine and Fetch also greeted Celine.   I think she feels very much at home. 😉

Sweet Celine and Finn and I thank you for visiting with us today. We hope you enjoyed this post. We will continue with the traveling posts in the future. For now, we are taking a break from the trip reporting and focusing on our beloved Sasha dolls.  Have a wonderful day and weekend coming up. 😊 xxx

Hello It’s Me….Joanie ❤

Image

The newest Sasha studio doll addition to Sasha Shangri-La is the sweetest of little girls named Joanie.  She is a pure delight and she sings daily which lifts me up especially now that I am home most of each day.

Joanie arrived in a green checked studio dress that is without a label but appears to be original. Gwennie immediately extended her sisterly love to Joanie.  Both girls have had some repairs in places on their lovely faces which is a sure sign that these older girls have been truly loved by others over the years. I am continuing their love story.  ❤

I took a few photos of Joanie when she arrived last Fall.

This pair of dear ones really brighten my day. 😊

Sisters forever. ❤

A nice photo of the pair and a waterlogue image too.

While the girls were modeling, sweet Joanie noticed that Gwennie’s dress was older and showed signs of wear. So she offered her dress to Gwennie! What a nice and generous gesture towards her sister. 😊

So pretty Gwennie tried on Joanie’s dress and I think it looks lovely on her. Do you agree?

You might remember that Gwennie was my first Sasha doll and I am very attached to her. I adopted her from Marie Morgan who was very kind and allowed me to pay for her by a layaway plan. Gwennie is a B-III studio doll. The B designates a cloth body and the III designates the type of face mold. Sasha designed four different face molds for her child dolls. ❤

Gwennie loves her dress very much but she immediately asked me to find a nice outfit for Joanie to wear so they both would have new outfits. 😊

I asked the very talented Janet Myhill-Dabbs to help us find an outfit. She found this wonderful studio-length, vintage dress that was among studio/course doll clothing she had acquired and it is perfect with Joanie’s green eyes. Janet knitted her cardigan and fabulous hat and made her lovely felt shoes. I added her onesie and her knitted socks and now Joanie has a new, fantastic and unique outfit. Janet suggested to put her braids up on each side which is a perfect enhancement to her pretty face and outfit. 🌹

Speaking of faces, Joanie’s face mold is a type I.  Since she has a cloth body, she is a B-I studio doll.

A close up view of the dress details. I love this fabric which is silk I believe and I really like the unusual fabric design . ❤

Lovely matching shoes and warm socks. 😊

The cardigan is very pretty and the hat is fantastic! I love the Pom Pom on the bottom. ❤

Joanie is very happy to have her new outfit. I was so touched by her kindness and generosity that I thought I would keep my eyes open for a Sasha studio outfit for Joanie. Guess what? I recently won an auction of a studio outfit and it arrived today in the mail! 😊

Here is a peek of Joanie’s outfit. She has not seen it yet. Do you think she will like it?  Let me know if I should surprise Joanie with this outfit and hat too. 🌹

The blue top is not tagged but is nicely made. 😊

“Hello Edith. My name is Ingrid.  It is nice to meet you.  You are very pretty Edith.”  “Thank you Ingrid, you are very pretty too!  Look, we have matching boo boos on our hands.  My boo boo is on the right hand and your boo boo is on your left hand.  But together, we can do anything.” ❤
