Please Welcome Bea 🐝


I would like to introduce the first arrival and newest addition to the Sasha Shangri-La family for 2019.  Her name is Beatrice and we call her Bea.  Bea is a BII Sasha studio doll.  B means her body is made of cloth and II is her face mold number.  Bea had been redressed when she arrived and so I dressed her in this beautiful Ruth’s dolls outfit and added a childhood, scarab bar pin.

She loves this dear little troll doll which is my sole remaining childhood doll and this sweet Steiff lamb just happily follows her around.  🐑

Bea has very unique and special eye painting.

Please take a closer look at Bea’s eyes.  Sasha has used sgraffito but differently than just the tip of her brush. It looks like she used a stiff piece of fabric that created a textured pattern in her eyes. You can also see that she used the tip of her brush too.   Amazing!


A closer view.

This is another photo showing better her painting in both eyes. Please look at Bea’s eyes up close to see the textured background.  I think it gives her eyes depth and interest.

Bea has really won my heart.  I love everything about her.

Look, Suzanne has come over to welcome her new sister Bea.

“Hello Bea! I am so happy to see you. My name is Suzanne. I think we look a lot each other. Just like sisters.”

“Hi Suzanne. It is wonderful to see you. I was hoping my new family would be nice like you. I am a little nervous.”

“Don’t you worry Bea. I will take care of you and introduce you to your new family and show you around the farm when the weather improves.”

“Oh thank you Suzanne. I feel so much better with you by my side.”

It looks like the two girls have quickly forged a sisterly bond. I love seeing them together.

Suzanne and Bea. ❤️

Loving sisters together.

Bea is a very happy little girl. 😊

I hope you have enjoyed meeting Bea and thank you for visiting with us today.

Bea, Suzanne, and I are sending you hugs and happy wishes for the weekend ahead.

I am hoping we have some sunny days soon.  The photos are so nice when taken outdoors.

❤️❤️❤️ Cow Creek hugs coming your way ❤️❤️❤️



Please meet Suzanne


This lovely B-II Sasha studio doll is named Suzanne. Suzanne recently arrived and I am thrilled to have her here at Sasha Shangri-La. ❤

Suzanne’s gingham outfit is original to her. 😊

Hidden behind her pinafore is beautiful smocking.

Smocking also on the back of her dress.

Her Sasha label along the back hemline. I turned the hem up to take the photo which is why you see the smocking.


Turning back the clock to last October, I first met Suzanne at Dorisanne ‘s lovely home when Janet and I paid a visit. You might remember that I adopted Bertie Karli from Dorisanne at that time. Bertie is a molded head boy that captured my heart. I brought Bertie home then but Dorisanne kindly accepted a layaway for Suzanne. This photo shows us together admiring the dolls. It was such a happy visit. ❤

Suzanne has a nice mohair bear friend to keep her company.

Suzanne is in excellent condition. She was made in the early 1950’s. We are both 1950’s girls. 😉

What s pretty girl.  Her smocking is shown on page 82 of the Sasha Clothing and Patterns book.  See below.


A wonderful book authored by Ann Chandler, Susanna Lewis, and Anne Votaw. 😊

Suzanne ❤

I took a couple of close-up photos to show her eye painting.

Suzanne and I thank you for visiting with us today. We hope you enjoyed this post.  We wish you a blessed week to come. 😊 xxx
