Just before Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive two new Sasha kids who came to join my dolly family. They made their appearances, a day apart, just after my mum and brother arrived from the UK to visit us for Christmas, so I was unable to really do anything more than take them from their boxes and check them over. The first to arrive was a little red head Sasha 'waif', who I have mentioned in a previous blog entry. She had previously had her beautiful two tone red hair cut into a cute bob, and I couldn't resist her when I saw her face looking out from my computer screen when she was listed for sale on Ebay.
I have dressed her in a little dress that I had previously made for my blond Sasha, Millie, because I didn't have time to make her anything in anticipation of her arrival. My mum gave her a pretty pink cardigan which she'd knitted for her for Christmas, and so this morning I made her some pink lacy knit tights to go with it and added brown suedette shoes, my 'not so great' first attempt at making dolly footwear. Unfortunately, Ellory, as she is now called, let me know in no uncertain terms, that pink really is NOT her colour! But as I told her, "It's pink or nothing for the moment, I'm afraid!" she agreed to wear the pink outfit until I can make her something more suited to her tomboy personality! (LOL, you can see from her face in this photo that she is not overly impressed!)
Next to arrive was a cute brunette dark jeans Gregor from 1973/74 from Shelly at Sasha Dolls UK. He had been described on her website as having good shiny non falling hair that needed restyling because it was sticking up in the air. I found his face really appealling and knew that with a bit of patience his hair would soon settle down! So he was bought by my husband as one of my Christmas gifts. As soon as he arrived I put a beany on his head to help flatten his hair and sure enough it is now more or less flat and what a cheeky little chap he is! He is very handsome and his name, he tells me, is Alexander, but we can call him Alex, apparently!
Now that my (human) family have gone back to the UK, I will make some clothes for these two new kids! Luckily the weather has been beautiful and sunny and very warm, so I was able to take quite a lot of photos in the garden today. Here is a cute photo of Devon and Millie, my little blond twins hanging out in the sunshine:
And finally here is my full Sasha family!! I don't know how it happended that I ended up with four kids, I honestly only planned on having the two!
The fab four are certainly looking fab and obviously enjoy living in Spain! I can see why you adopted Alex, I think he has the cutest face and like his proper 'little boy' hair...a real little scamp :)ReplyDelete
I will put money on it that in 2013 you will have added to your Sasha kids..two has already doubled into four...:)
LOL Four! How did that happen? Yes, isn't Alex a cutie, he is really very handsome.Delete
I am sure you'll double your money, but I really hope I don't double my Sasha family!!!!
They just keep growing on you!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, and I already seem to have an addictive personality!!!Delete
Ha! I told you they were addictive and multiply at an alarming rate! ;-) Love your two newbies and those shoes you made look pretty good to me, although she is right, pink isn't her colour...but definitely better than nothing. They all look great standing there together. What a great family.ReplyDelete
Oh by the way, my son is enjoying your sunny weather at the moment!
Oh boy yes, they are addictive! But I don't have the room for any more....famous last words! Thanks on the shoes, they're not bad from a distance I guess. I will try making some more, I need to get some nice soft leatherette stuff.Delete
Oh that's great! Where is your son at the moment?
