Millie's head arrived back today from visiting with Shelly of Sasha Doll UK where her slightly faded blue eyes were repainted a warm chocolate brown. Shelly has done a super job on her and I'm really pleased with her new look. I really do love how Shelly repaints the Sasha eyes, they are very natural and like the original Morgenthaler ones, but with Shelly's special touch.....just perfect! Lovely dress set by Ruths Doll, a present from Steve last year when we met in England.
She is looking beautiful now Shelly's repainted her eyes Sharon. The brown looks lovely with her blonde hair and I love that dress by Ruth that Steve gave you. I do think Shelly does the best eyes and they so lift the doll to another level.ReplyDelete
Great set of photo's showing off Millie to a T!
Hugs Dee xxx
Thanks very much Dee, I'm glad you like her, Shelly does such beautiful work. And yes, I'm very lucky to have received the perfect dress set for her from Steve!!Delete
Those eyes turned out wonderfully. There really seems to be a distinct expression to them.ReplyDelete
And I love how you managed to photograph that deep brown eye colour seems to get it to work so well with the earthy colours in the outdoors!
There really does, doesn't there! She looks a bit sleepy sometimes....or maybe that is because I'm sleepy myself LOL!Delete
Thanks very much jSarie!
Gorgeous girl xReplyDelete
Thank you Louise!Delete
Hope that's a good 'ooooooohhhhhh' Jenni! ;)
her eyes match her dress perfectly. She needs strong eye paint in the bright Spanish sunshine.ReplyDelete
She really does, the sun would wash the colour out if it were paler......I love the deep brown, it works very well for her!Delete
Millie looks fantastic with her beautiful brown eyes. Shelly is so very talented and I love her repaintings. I particularly like the brown eyes with her lovely blonde hair. She is a vision in her dress by Ruthsdolls and what a perfect and generous gift from Steve. Congratulations on a special and unique addition to your Sasha family! :) xxxReplyDelete
Thank you very much Ginger, you're right Shelly does lovely work, she is a great artist.Delete
I am very lucky :)
What a pretty girl..I have always loved a brown-eyed doll. They just always seem "warmer" to me (and I have blue eyes!) I love how she slightly extended the lash line up and out a little...really pretty.ReplyDelete
Thank you Farrah, me too on brown eyes, they are my favourite, and like you I also have blue eyes but my hubby and son have brown.Delete
I was sure I had left a comment on here Sharon when you first posted, but perhaps it was just on FB. There are so many places to post pictures and comments it is easy to forget what we have commented on! She is absolutely delightful and a wonderful transformation. Shelly does such lovely eye paint and how nice to see a brown eyed blonde. Her dress suits her beautifully as well.ReplyDelete
Always adore the brown eyes/blonde hair combination in both humans and dollsReplyDelete
Adore that Ruthsdoll's dress!
Thanks very much Kendal, I too love this combination and thought that if Shelly could do her eyes in brown for me she would be perfect. I think having two other blonds with blue eyes from the late 60s, this poor girl seemed to pale into insignificance compared to them....although she had the better hair of the three. So now she can hold her own with the best of them and I love her new look :)Delete
