Downsizing? Me? LOL, if you believe that, you'll believe anything!

Well I told myself that I was going to downsize.....dolls would be going up for adoption!  And fair enough, I did indeed sell some dolls and my paypal account was looking rather healthy.  Ahh, but as I've probably mentioned before, when I have money in my paypal account, so it burns a hole right through the bottom!  So although my BJD numbers have decreased, I've replaced those adopted out dolls, with ...... yes, you guessed it, Sasha dolls!  Yes, I was the person who initially was only going to have the one, a girl, I didn't want any boys. Erm, then I 'accidentally' bought a boy, so I had a boy and a girl....but then lo and behold I saw my redhead 'waif' on Ebay and just couldn't resist her.....and so we had four! 

But suddenly, I just kept seeing girls that I loved, couldn't resist and could afford......so I brought them home and slowly but surely my Sasha family increased.  Of course I'm completely innocent here, it is all the fault of Shelly of Sasha Dolls UK!!!  Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!

So now I have 9.  Yes, 9!!  Up until yesterday it was 8, but last week I saw another little girl on Shelly's site that I just had to have, and she arrived yesterday.  I had been looking at the later Gotz girls for some time, asking Sasha friends about them and looking at photos on Flickr and elsewhere but I was always a little wary of their eyes, which looked a bit 'staring' in photos so I wasn't sure.  Then I saw a little cutie on Shelly's site, a Wibke, who had repainted eyes by Shelly!!  Absolutely perfect!  I decided to think on it overnight   By the morning, having seen some very cute photos of a similar girl on Facebook, I had decided that yes, Wibke would be coming home to join my girls and boys.  The great thing was, between showing interest and making up my mind, the price of the doll was reduced by £50!!!!  Even better!  So here she is, and I'm really happy with her, she's so cute. I wasn't expecting her to be so petite, I thought she'd be bigger than my other girls but she is actually fractionally smaller even than the older Trendon girls!  I'm really pleased, she fits in perfectly with my darker skinned family.

So introducing Heidi, my little German pale skinned girl with lovely dark blue eyes repainted by the very talented Shelly!  She has borrowed an outfit from another of my girls because she had nothing to wear, but I will rectify that soon enough.  In the meantime, I think this dress suits her perfectly!!

    1. There is NO cure for me!!! I obviously have a very addictive personality!
      I am very pleased with the new girl though, but of course it hasn't stopped me from looking at other ones. I now have a wish list.....which is NOT good to have!!!!
      Glad you like her Dee!!

    1. Thanks very much Ronny! I think you're right, 12 would be a nice even number now, wouldn't it!!!
      Plus I could a girl for every month of the year if I had 12!!!!

  3. I did think from the photo of all your Sashas on your blog the other day that suddenly you had rather more than earlier this year! Your new girl is very pretty.

    1. Thank you DollMum! Yes, I wondered if anyone would notice how the numbers had increased....so I slipped this pale skin girl in quickly...but she didn't get here in time for the group shot!

    1. Thanks Valli! Yes, that is the hard part, parting with others ... I have some that I don't love so much, so maybe they will go!

  5. What a lovely new girl. You're right about the eyes - Shelly's repaint really brings her to life. I really love the hair style of these girls and their dainty little faces.

    1. Thank you very much Penny! I have 2 boys and 7 girls, no babies. I'm not really into babies but I do like the toddlers....I don't have one though. I have others on my 'wish list' before any toddlers come here!

  7. I'm afraid that there's just NO hope for YOU now.
    Sasha Collecting is just like an incurable disease with no known cure available! No help, support or counselling either from other Sasha members, just encouragement to buy more and more!

    I have always loved the later Gotz pale skinned Wibke and had two as twins for years.
    That dress suits her colouring so perfectly that I'm thinking that you might have to consider it well and truly hers!

    1. Thank you very much Kendal! And you're right, there really is NO hope whatsoever for me, is there!!
      I've had the encouragement alright, and I really don't need it, I can spend plenty of money quite easily all on my own! LOL
      And yes, she won't take the dress off yet, so it is lucky that Jojo, the original owner of the outfit, is more than happy to wear her angel top and leggings that I made for her last week!!!
