The two girls arrived yesterday and today they are settling in and resting after their long journey from the USA. As Ginger informed me, both girls have falling hair to some degree, but I have learned my lesson the hard way in the past, these girls will not be getting a hair wash, in fact they will not even have their hair combed!! So if they look a little windswept please forgive me!!
First up is Stella who was named by her previous mum, Ginger. Stella has white elastics although I'm not sure if they are her original ones, and pretty brown eyes, her lips have oxidised a little, she is in good 'played with' condition. She has very thick hair and as far as I'm aware has no empty plugs :) She is wearing a new outfit that I recently received from Ginny, of A Passion for Sasha, I think it really suits her colouring. Her shoes are made by Noreen and her socks are made by me.
Secondly we have this little lady. She had a sad start to life apparently, she was owned by a person who had acquired her in a 'lot' of dolls, and sadly the person didn't even like Sasha dolls!!! She has never been played with, and never had a name! I think you can see this sadness reflected in her face! ;) So she went to live with Ginger, where she was happy but still didn't get named, LOL, and now she has come to live here with me. She too has nice thick hair and no missing plugs as yet. Her elastics are also white and she has lots of sand falling from her joints. She came to me wearing her original gingham outfit but changed straight away into this outfit which I made a while ago for another girl. The reason she hasn't got anything new yet is because the outfit I made especially for her, just didn't suit her, so I will make her something else. Red leather boots are made by Ruthsdolls.
And here are some photos of the two girls together. They are happy to have one another because it's always a bit overwhelming to arrive in a new home in a strange country and not know anyone, but I'm sure that my other girls and boys will soon make them feel at home :)
Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoyed meeting the new girls. I will hopefully have a name for Little Miss No Name very soon!
Lovely girls Sharon XReplyDelete
Thanks so much Louise xxxDelete
Two new brunettes! They're gorgeous - congratulations on bringing them home! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks very much JS xxxDelete
Gorgeous girls Sharon, I do love the brunettes.I love how these two look different to each other, I'm sure you'll enjoy having these two living with you and if you don't brush the hair I'm sure it will last a nice long while and I personally like the wind swept look :) xxxReplyDelete
Thanks very much Dee! And now I have three! I love them too, they are so different to one another. I will have to do a post comparing them!Delete
Yes, I'm being really good and not brushing or combing their hair, so hopefully.....keeping everything crossed, they'll stay hairy for a while yet!
Oh, how wonderful to go from none (well after poor Bailey's little mishap with the hair washing!) to two and all thanks to Ginger!ReplyDelete
Pleased tl hear that you're not tempted to wash their hair. I'm afraid that ALL my brunette dolls have falling hair at one stage or another. Such a pity as I do love this colouring the very best of all!
Loving how you've dressed them. So young, sweet and trendy looking!
Have fun girls!
Well I've been a bit more naughty Kendal and now have three!!!! But yes, I'm not touching their hair at all :) I love this hair colour a lot too...but then I like the blonds and redheads too it has to be said, but I really wanted another brunette after Bailey's little mishap. :(Delete
Thanks for liking how they're dressed!
Congrats on the new arrivals, they look so sweet Sharon. You do such a great job making their clothes. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you very much Xanadu xxxDelete
Oh, they are lovely, lovely, lovely! Why do the poor brunettes have to suffer the indignity of potential, or actual hair loss? They are my personal favourites.ReplyDelete
The un-named girl looks very 'continental' to me. She reminds me of my French penpal.
Thanks very much Jenni. It is very sad about their hair, I so wish it wouldn't fall but I guess it makes them all the more precious to us, doesn't it? Well hopefully anyway!Delete
The unnamed girl is now called Eden :)
On the last 2 photos, the nameless girls almost seems to smile. Maybe she realized she can stay and will get lots of lovely clothes? The set you made (if not for her) suits her well! I think Sashas look striking in modern girl clothes.ReplyDelete
Is it so dangerous to wash brunette hair? Both my brunette girls had a hair wash when they arrived (due to strange hairstyles), but until now I don't think they shed any. Emme is early 70s, Modesty is a bit younger.
Now all you need is a name...
She really does, doesn't she! I thought the same. I hope that is the reasoning behind it ;)Delete
It does seem that most brunettes will shead their hair at some point in their lives. It used to be that people thought it was worse for dolls that had been stored away and that those who'd been played with were safer as they'd had the air circulation. But I really don't know now as sometimes it just happens. I'm glad that your girls have good hair and hope that continues for a long time.
How wonderful to see these lovely girls, Stella and Miss No Name, all settled in and redressed so beautifully. I love their outfits and especially the one Miss No Name selected for herself. It is wonderful to see her looking so well loved and well dressed!ReplyDelete
I am so happy they made the trip safely and hopefully they will make friends with your Sasha family and others too. I am thinking of Teddy, Nuria and Ellie and even Brodie! lol Thank you for a lovely, welcoming post Sharon. :) xxx
Thank you so much for allowing me to adopt them from you Ginger, I'm really very happy with both of them, they're lovely!Delete
I am really enjoying having them and they have a new sister! Who you will see in my later blog post :) I have triplets!!! Whooo hoooo!
Congratulations, they're lovely.ReplyDelete
Isn't it amazing that two brunettes can look so different?
Glad to see both smiling in the final shot - clearly they're settling in very nicely.
Thank you very much Rosie!Delete
Yes, I was saying the same thing to my husband, the dolls are all the same mould and yet they look so different....sadly he cannot see it! Oh well, that's his loss I'm afraid.
Dear Sharon :-) ... I love them both but I do have a soft spot for the one in the outfit with braces ;-). They are different and if I had to choose I don't know which one I would take. So you made a pretty good decision. With a big hug, LissReplyDelete
Thank you so much dear Liss, I'm glad you like them! As you see I just couldn't choose between them so they both came here, but it would have been cruel to leave one behind, don't you agree? ;)Delete
I will be in touch soon about your commissiona :)
Your Sashas always look so lovely, did you knit the socks?ReplyDelete
Thanks very much Penny! And no, I wish I could say that yes I knitted them but I actually sewed them from knit fabric.Delete
