How did you get here?

I realised yesterday that somehow I had 10 of my Sasha family down here at the coast with me!  Now how did that happen?  I'm sure I only brought a few down here when we loaded the car to come to the coast for the summer.  I am assuming they must have made their own way down here by bus or maybe by the high speed Ave train! ;)

Anyway, here they all are, they wanted to show you their new outfits too, so I thought I'd take photos of them all, even those who aren't wearing anything new!

Here is a group shot:

L to R: Gabrielle, Eden, Willow, Skye, Wren, Teddy (in front), Devlin, Nuria, Stella and Bailey (trying another new wig)
 

I love how, despite having the same face sculpt, they all look so different because of how they have been painted.

I know that readers of my blog will have seen most of these kids before, but I thought I'd still share some closeups. 

Gabrielle is a late 70s Sasha Pink Dress but her eyes have been repainted by Shelly of Sasha Dolls UK and I added freckles and blush.  Her wig is by Mary Madeco Smith and is made of Tibetan Lambswool.
Her outfit is made by me and her shoes are by Marti Sanders Murphy.



Next up is Eden who recently joined us here in Spain from her previous home in the US.  She is a Sasha Gingham from 1970 and is wearing an outfit I made last year, plus boots by Ruth of Ruthsdolls:




Next we have a little newbie who slipped in last week having come to live here from her previous home in the UK.  Her name is Willow and she is from 1969.  She is wearing a lovely new smocked dress by Marilyn Hotchkiss, socks by me and shoes by Marti Sanders Murphy.  I have since changed her socks for white ones as I don't think these striped ones go well with this dress:



Next up is Skye, she is a 1969 Blond Sasha and is wearing another new outfit also made by Marilyn Hotchkiss.  The outfit is made up of a blouse, shorts and this lovely biscuit coloured pinafore over the top, so in effect could be two outfits :)  The socks are by me and shoes are again by the lovely  Marti Sanders Murphy and were a Christmas gift from my dear friend Louise who knew that I really liked mustardy yellow shoes :)   Although you can't see it very well in these photos, the blouse and shorts fabric has orange and yellow owls on it, so the shoes are a perfect match :)



Next we have Wren who is a 1969 Sasha Kilt.  She is wearing yet another new outfit, again by Marilyn, consisting of white shorts, blue and white 'angel' top and sun hat!  I love Wren in blue as it really brings out the colour of her eyes.  Her socks are by me and her shoes are by the late great Jean Jensen.



Next we have Wren's twin brother, Devlin.  Devlin is a 1969 Blond Pyjamas Gregor and poor lad doesn't have anything new to wear.....but I struggle to take off his blue hoodie as it matches his eyes perfectly!!!  His tee shirt, hoodie and denim cap were made by me, his brown cord trousers are Dollydoodles I believe and his shoes are by Boneka.



Squeezed in here is little Teddy!  Teddy is a Gotz Toddler Erik from 2001.  He is wearing striped dungarees and matching cap plus lemon knit tee shirt, all recently made by me especially for him and his shoes are by Lisa Hartley. 



My little redhead Nuria is up next and she is a Ballerina Sasha from 1968.  She is wearing an outfit that I made especially for her last week, consisting of bubble shorts and top.  The shorts are made from a lovely soft fine needle cord which I got from Finland.  I also used the fabric for decorating the top.  Her socks are also made by me and her boots are by Ruthsdolls.



Alongside Nuria we have Stella, the second little brunette girlie who arrived a couple of weeks ago from the US.  I think Stella is from late in 1969 but not completely sure on that.  Regardless, she is a little sweetie and is wearing a pretty three piece set by Passion for Sasha with yellow socks by me and leather shoes by Noreen Walters.



And last but by no means least is Bailey.  Bailey is my wigged ex Brunette Sasha from 1971.  Today she's trying out yet another wig  but will probably go back to one of her others tomorrow.  I am not overkeen on this look for her!   She is wearing white dungarees and navy and white gingham blouse and socks all made by me and her shoes are again by Jean Jensen.



Finally, some photos of groups together:

The boys, Teddy and Devlin:  (Cute teddy bear being held by Teddy, was a gift from the lovely Ginger!)

    1. Thanks very much Dee, I enjoyed getting them all dressed up for summer, well except for my boy who has since taken off his hoodie, poor lad. Having said that, it was almost all that was keeping him standing, his stringing was so loose when I removed his clothes! Another job to be done soon.
      Yes, the weather has been beautiful since last weekend, thank goodness....I can't be doing with all that rain, no matter how essential it was!

  3. Your dolls are always so well dresses Sharon, I love them in the group shot and that little red elephant dress is simply gorgeous (my favourite) with that smocking.
    Hugs,

    1. Thanks very much Xanadu, that's very kind of you to say so.
      Isn't that red dress lovely! It has a white pinafore to go over the top but then that hides the lovely smocking so I decided to leave it off for now. But it really does suit my new brunette girl.

  4. Sometimes, I wonder why we Sasha lovers have so many. Then I see a post by an expert in clothing and photographing them, someone like you, and remember why.
    Sharon, your kids are all fabulous and perfectly dressed to suit their differing personalities They are fab and the new grls fit right in. The brunettes are my favourites and yous are great examples but, oh, Gabrielle is stunning.
    Hi, little Teddy!!! We love you. Your new clothes are great and you are ready for a day at the beach.

    1. Awww thanks very much Jen, glad you liked seeing them. I like them in groups but then I like them individually too, I like them all ways!
      I used to think that the brunettes were my favourite too, but then I fell in love with the blonds with their striking blue eyes...and then the redheads. Oh boy, does it ever end!
      Teddy says hi back to you too but he has been very exhausted this week ;)

  5. I just adore seeing all our different Sasha/Gregor individual personalities shine through due to their poses, face painting, hair colours/ styles and clothing.
    Never fails to make you again yet realise just what a fantastic doll Sasha Morgenthaler created!

    1. Thanks very much Kendal, I agree. Despite the fact that they are all the same face mould, they all look so different, their personalities seem to shine through. And that in itself seems magical to me :)

  6. Never tire of seeing your kids Sharon - so well dressed an stylish. I think Bailey need a darker wig, or maybe just a short wig?
    It was so great to see you at Celebration x

    1. Thank you very much Tricia, I'm glad you enjoy seeing them. I agree, she definitely needs something different...I like her in the short Prince Gregor wig, or maybe the long dark blond Monique Gold Ginger wig....she will be changed again soon I suspect!

  7. Hiya Sharon! Wow...love this group photo!
    All cute...
    Love Gabrielle's wig!
    Love Nuria's short set!
    And can't believe Bailey's dungarees!
    And their shoes! Just great!

    My kids' Sashas are now scrubbed and clothed. Barely an outfit each. Haha
    But I did get each of them shoes from Dotti! Coming soon!
    Yay!

  8. You've gathered an impressive collection in a couple of years and of course their clothes a great and filled with character. I didn't see who you brought with you to the Sasha Celebration.

    1. Thanks very much Anna....erm, coughs, this is just half of mine! LOL...and to be fair, it's getting on for four years now, she says trying to justify herself ;)
      Nuria (the redhead), Gabrielle (Shelly repaint in Lambswool wig) and Toddler Teddy were with me.

  9. They are all wonderful! And you're right...even the ones with similar coloring look different. I love how a dolls "personality" can really shine through...especially in their eyes. Gabrielle is gorgeous! I love Bailey's little face..I especially like the blonde/brown eyed combo. I do have to say that Skye's pretty eyes are quite mesmerizing, though! :)

    1. Thanks very much Farrah, I'm glad you enjoyed seeing my Sasha family. I'm also a fan of the blond hair brown eyes combo, definitely a favourite. Although it's hard to really have a favourite for me to be honest!

  10. A very lovely post Sharon and all of Sashas are beautifully dressed. Your Devlin is a stunning boy and I think I would have a difficult time removing that blue hoodie too. It is perfect with his beautiful blue eyes. I am so very happy we were able to meet in person at the SCW. It feels almost like a dream now.....but duty calls and I am now back to work though today is a holiday so I am enjoying some Sasha catching-up time. Thank you for sharing your wonderful Sashas. :) xxx (big hugs too XXX)

    1. Thanks very much Ginger, and yes, poor Devlin is still sweltering in his hoodie, so I really must remove it soon before he melts into a small tanned puddle!
      It was indeed one of the BEST things to meet you....such fun, but didn't it just go so quickly?!!
      Big big hugs xxxx
