Results are in! Please allow me to introduce…


Last week I asked for friends to suggest names for the newest boy here at Sasha Shangri-La.  This shy boy is a redheaded 1967 NP shorts boy. We received many excellent name suggestions and we want to thank each of you for taking the time to write to us to share names.  We thought about each one over the weekend and Finn took the lead to help narrow down the names to two possible choices. He reviewed each name with his new brother and asked him what name he liked best.

Finn says the two finalist names are Bryn and Harry (William was third).  Again, many thanks to you all that helped us so much with great suggestions.

Finn is wearing a Diane Duke sweater, britches by luvzone7 on eBay, knitted socks maker unknown, and wonderful leather saddle oxfords made by Betty Jean Densford. Fetch is staying close to Finn as always.

Finn will now make the name announcement.  Drum roll please ……..

“My new brother’s name is Bryn!  I hope you love Bryn as I do.”

The 1967 boys club are gathered around to play with Bryn and to give him a puppy to keep him company and ensure that he feels part of the family. Bryn loves his new puppy.  The boys from left to right are Bronson, Bryn, Finn, and Ferris. ❤️

Ferris is wearing a knitted sweater, maker unknown and Ruthsdolls denim dungarees.

Ferris likes his comfortable outfit and boots by Lisa Hartley.  He is staying warm today since it is pretty chilly at 38 degrees at noon time.

A most handsome boy.  Ferris says hello to you. ❤️

Bronson also says hello to you!

Bronson is wearing a sweater by Rosie Laird, a Dollydoodles gillet, jeans by Sashapotamus and red leather boots by Jean Jensen.

Bronson is happy to have a new brother!  He and Brynn are best buddies already!

Bryn is wearing his Diane Duke  sweater, Dollydoodles jeans, and Noreen Walters made leather boots.  He looks right at home with his puppy in tow.

Bryn thanks you for visiting with us today. We wish you a very happy day and wonderful week to come. ❤️ xxx

Bryn sends hugs to you!

A Very Merry Sasha Christmas


Our lovely daughter-in-law Mollie came straight to us this happy Christmas morning after her work shift ended. She is a nurse and cares for elderly patients throughout the night. Here you can see her unwrapping her Christmas gift in this photo. 😊🎅🏻😊🎁

Oh look! Santa has brought Mollie a beautiful brunette gingham girl.   Mollie is so happy to have her first Sasha child doll. She had two Sasha babies in her doll family and now she will add a sweet brunette girl. 😊

Look! Santa also brought a special box for me! 🎅🏻😊

Oh my, a very interesting box! What could it be? 😊


Oh my!!  A Creative Playthings box. This is getting better and better! 😍

Look! A beautiful blonde, ochre eyed Gotz Sasha doll!  I feel like I am 10 years old again. What a fantastic gift and a Christmas I will always remember.  This special girl was adopted from the original owner and her name was and is Sasha! How perfect is that?  ❤️🎄❤️🎅🏻❤️🎁❤️

Thank you for visiting with us here at Sasha Shangri-La today and throughout the past year. I am thankful and feel very blessed to be a part of our Sasha community which is full of kind, generous, and caring people. ❤️

Merry Christmas to you and your family.  I hope you have a very blessed holiday season and a most Happy and Healthy New Year in 2019!!!  ❤️🎄😊❤️🎉



Rain, Rain Never Go Away 🌹



A beautiful new addition to the Sasha Shangri-La family is a lovely and unique girl repainted by artist Mary Madeco-Smith. Her name is Rain.  Mary posted her on Facebook as ready for adoption and I was lucky to write to her first. 😊


Mary sent Rain to me dressed in an amazing outfit and wearing a wig made of many colors of the rainbow. She also sent a fantastic black wig and I have taken photos of Rain wearing both wigs. Mary sent a beautiful African dress with Rain and I will show that in another post.  Both of these creative and unique outfits were made of fantastic, organic fabrics and made in collaboration with Tim Purk. ❤




img_5632❤  I love this outfit!







Rain came without shoes at my request.  I love her stripy socks and wanted them to show so I paired them up with a pair of leather sandals.  The sandals were made by Paula of 4 Angels in the U.K. ❤

img_5645❤ Next is Rain wearing her fabulous black wig.  I think both wigs are just wonderful on her!



img_5647❤ The ties on her bibs and the rolled collar really are special touches to this outfit.


❤ Rain feels confident and so ready to embrace life.






❤ We hope you have enjoyed meeting Rain.


❤ Rain and I want to thank you for visiting with us today.  We are sending you hugs and happy wishes for the weekend days and the week to come. 😊 xxx
