A ”Sasha” Bunk Bed


Recently on Facebook, a lady asked about beds for Sasha. i remembered I had bought one some time ago and had not assembled it. So I found the box it was shipped in and pulled it out. Rick kindly put it together for me over the weekend. It is a very nice, sturdy bed.

The end panels are a barn red color. The bed measures 21 inches long by 11.5 inches wide. It is 17 inches tall to the top of the bed post. The bed came with two mattresses and one pillow.

I have no idea when this bed was made but I like the floral pattern. Maybe late 1960’s to mid 1970’s???

Betty Jean is excited about the new bed and wanted to help me show it by modeling for us. Her lovely cardigan was made by Linda Simpson. Her terrific shoes and socks were made by Betsy May. I think her beautiful dress, though untagged, was made by Karen Warnaka.

It is most comfortable according to Betty Jean. Plus just her size. Kids just love the top bunk!

If you look closely next to Betty Jean’s hand, you will see a sweet surprise! The name ”Sasha” is clearly there in a lovely script.

I don’t think Betty Jean will ever move. She has staked her claim!

Thank you for visiting with us today. Have a great week!

Welcome Home Briana


Briana returned to Sasha Shangri-La last week. She was living with a very good friend who kindly allowed me to adopt her back.

Briana is an early Gotz girl with lovely golden eyes with fine eyelashes. She has silky brunette hair. She has a tuft of hair at her neckline which indicates she is a ponytail girl. I am very happy to see her again.


Briana is wearing a corduroy dress and i am not certain of the maker and I am uncertain who made the knitted items. Her olive green leather shoes are from Sashapotamus.

Thank you for visiting with us today. Have a very happy werk ahead.

Please meet Ana


A beautiful studio doll, a farm child, has come to Sasha Shangri-La last year. I have named her Ana.

I moved Ana to the front of the cabinet for photos. I hope to take better photos soon and to go outdoors! Meanwhile, I hope you will enjoy seeing Ana with her doll family and the late winter lighting surrounding them.

Ana is holding a Steiff boar in her hand. Being a farm girl, she is used to being with animals and loves them. They love her too as seen by the dear little chick hiding in her apron pocket. Ana is totally at home here at Lost Horizon Farm.

A few photos showing Ana up close.

Always so interesting to see how Sasha painted her dolls.

Aso so interesting to see how Sasha dressed her dolls. A view of Ana’s slip, knitted socks, and leather boots.

Oh, let’s not forget Ana’s pretty pants.
