A few of my Sasha Dolls admiring my Birthday flowers.

A delightful Trug of Campanula, highlighting the mauve/purple colour vein in the living room from my special sasha friend, Jill Mackley and her well known Sasha Doll model, Georgia.

An attractive dainty bouquet of yellow roses and greenery to herald one of our first days this year of sunshine from one of my brothers and his wife.

Beautiful frees'ia, the purple/mauve again chosen by my teaching/Sasha friend Kate to co-ordinate with one of the colours incorporated in my living room.

A lovely bouquet of Spring sunshine to brighten up my special day from one of the school children's (that I taught) parents who has remained a good friend to me throughout these many years.

New doll for my birthday. A gift from me to me!

My very first 1966 developemental doll, although she has been in the 'wish list' for some time now. She has greyish coloured eyes rather than the usual bright blue and a full centre part so most probably came originally dressed in the brown cord 'Jeans' but is now wearing an early OOAK Ruthsdolls outfit.

New birthday baby (a gift from me to me) wearing a birthday gift prototype little coated babygro given to me by Judith (Dollydoodles.)

1970 Frido/Trendon baby Woolly wearing a delightful Dollydoodle teddy bear motiff 'all in one' babygro underneath a little top coat for added warmth.

If the Daffodils are blooming then we know for sure that Spring is here.

'I wandered lonely as a cloud....'

'When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils'

'Fluttering and dancing in the breeze
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance,'

'And then my heart fills
and dances with the daffodils.'
William Wordsworth.

Four of my five lads. (The fifth hadn't returned in time from visiting his friend.)

Fun with an empty Easter egg box.

We all know how much fun young children can have with empty boxes, well judging from these photos it seems that my Sasha babies are no different!

Three of us went to visit a nearby farm.

Gregor up close to a newly born lamb.

Who are YOU then?

Rather glad here that there was a wire cage separating the two!

Meeting some real life bunnies.

Bea and Anis go on an Easter Egg hunt.

As the garden is rather a large place for little people to search Bea and Anis were told to look amongst the flowers that matched the colour of their clothing.
Anis busily searching for her eggs amongst the pale yellow Primroses.

Anis, look carefully I think that there is still one that I can see that needs to be collected into your basket.

Bea hunting for her eggs amongst the purple Spring crocus.

Bea, although your basket is nearly full, look around you as there are still many more to be found.

My very first pair of Jean Jenson's studio style Mary-Janes.

Seen here with a Sashadollstyle duffle coat and off white cotton tights, (the latter a gift from Jill Mackley.)

New baby pram suit.

A pretty and very finely knitted pram suit by eBay ID Maz480.

A GORGEOUS new re-rooted by Lisa Hartley baby arrives to join my Sasha family.

New baby in her best dress, a OOAK by Ruthsdolls, manufactured shoes and Ruthsdolls picot topped socks.

A million/trillion thanks to Lisa for her outstanding re-rooting skills seen here on one of my previously falling haired Nightdress babies. I can honestly say that when it comes to re-rooting, 'Nobody does it better'!
A simply irresistable photo (and one of my favourites of her so far though more to come) of my new baby wearing Ruthsdolls OOAK dungarees and hugging a Merrythought bear (a firm favourite gift from Shelly a few years ago.)

Here we are ready for bed wearing a delightful pink/white spotted Dollydoodle babygro.

Ready for the outdoors in a Sashawardrobe fleece and Doll Works tights.

New kid on the block. My first 1970 No-navel.

It has taken fourteen years of Sasha Doll collecting to get me interested in the No-Navel dolls. I already have a 1969 brunette and now this, a very attractive 1970 girl. She is wearing an unusual knitted coat won off eBay and Sashadollstyle trousers and JJ boots, all chosen to enhance the colour of her eyes.
