And another slip down the slippery slope.........

Oh dear, I should have listened when they told me about the slippery slope....because I've slipped a little further down....wweeeeeeeee!!

My new little girl arrived yesterday and I'm already smitten!  Let me introduce you to Little Miss No Name!  She is a 1968 redhead English Sasha who I bought last week from Sarah of Vintage Sasha.  I never meant to buy her but when I saw her staring from Sarah's blog....well my heart melted!  I have learned thorugh experience that the expression "(s)he who hesitates is lost..." so I quickly contacted Sarah and the rest, as they say, is history!!

Her hair is beautiful, it's thick and glossy and the colour reminds me of copper when it has that pinkish glow to it.  Her eyes are soft and brown.  She can look dreamy or even slightly peeved, depending on what angle you're looking from, she really is quite lovely!!  She even has her small gold wrist tag. 


Here I think she looks quite pensive but dreamy


 Whereas here, she just looks....well beautiful in my opinion!


Here she is wearing a dress that I made for a friends birthday, before realising that it would be too long for her tastes, so this little one is the first to wear it, and my friend got another outfit instead!


Deep in thought here....maybe she is thinking "wow, have I come to live in an oven?" as it reached 42C in the shade today!



Here she looks ever so slightly 'peeved'.....


Whereas with a little movement of her head, she looks deep in thought again!


And here, what can I say?  She just looks GORGEOUS!!! Ok, ok, so I'm prejudiced!!! :)


Love this one too, there was a slight breeze and it picked up some strands of her hair.....


Thanks so much Sarah for putting her on your blog to sell for your friend!!!!!

    If the results are like this then I'd carry on slipping down that slippery slope!

  2. She is gorgeous , the 68's are the best Sasha's, the eyes have that little something extra! And well I just love the reds!
    I'm sure she'll love living with you, as long as she can stand in the shade!! 42 c.... I feel hot just typing it!!
    What about Mia or Melody ? if you not keen on Amanda but I will say that if they want a name they tend to get it!! :)

  4. She's a stunning girl. What a lucky Sasha Mum you are to have seen her just as others must have been hesitating.. and losing.
    I love the redhaired early dolls. Congratulations!
