4. Which doll have you had the longest? How long has it been?
I've had Millie the longest, it's been about 14 months since I got her!
5. Which doll is your favorite?
I don't like to have favourites but there are some I like more than others!!!! Lets leave it at that!
6. Are you waiting on any dolls now? If yes, which one(s)?
None. I'm trying not to add to my dolly family for the time being, so that I can enjoy what I already have.
7. What is your grail doll?
I think that there are several of Kendals girls, particularly her Gotz girls, that would be Holy Grail dolls for me I think!!
8. Did you learn something new because of this hobby?
I have been learning about the history of the Sasha dolls and how they came to be made, I've also been learning how to tell the approximate age of a particular doll. I've found that there is a lot to learn but it has been fun doing so!
9. Have you made any friends you might otherwise not have because of this hobby?
Yes, I've met some really lovely lovely helpful people who've pointed me in the direction of dolls that they knew I would love.....You know who you are!! I've yet to meet them but really hope to do so this year!
10. What are your doll plans for this coming year?
Eventually I would like to have another Gotz girl, I would like a redheaded slate eyes girl to go with my blond and brunette. I'd also love to eventually have one of the sharp nose Gotz boys too...oh and maybe a toddler! To be honest, there are sooo many lovely ones that I'd not turn away if they came knocking on my door!!
I am really happy with what I currently have so I'm not desparately hankering after anything at this moment in time. I would like to add Sasha sized props to my collection so that I can take more interesting photos. I would also love to make more things for my own dolls as well as for others.....I just need to get myself organised!!
Here is a mosaic of my Sasha family as of today!
