Having promised Denise Owen for over a year now to send a photo from here for her 5th of the month Sasha Shelf Photos Post I finally managed it!
It is of my ‘second chance’ 1967 Miss Concave Sasha Doll who is wearing a beautiful Petrana dress with Marti Murphy Birkenstocks, standing alongside my stunning Moonpig Birthday card from Denise and Paul and Casper, on one of my bedside chests.
The stone heart was a gift from Chon and the little pottery vase I brought back from Cornwall.
Belle, a Shelly customised 1970s wide faced Gregor wearing one of my favourite vintage-sasha dresses (re-cycled from a man’s shirt) and Ruthsdolls cardigan and JJ sandals standing on a small bookcase in my bedroom.
These three graded pottery bowls are from my Pottery Craft Course when I was attending Teacher’s Training College. Unfortunately I had to give this up after three months as I couldn’t bare the way the wet clay dried out the skin on my hands.
A 1968/69 Frido Fringe bobbed haired girl in a Bambino Bello lime green coat outfit and Ruthsdolls shoes standing on my hall bookcase.
The two pieces of pottery were mementos from a holiday in Jersey plus another little of my embroidery pictures, depicting a hedgerow boardering fields.
My Trendon 1970s baby boy in a Sasha, Sasha, Sasha (or Sashax3) outfit sitting on the side table by where I sit on the settee. (I made that little poppy field picture from fine painted silk and a wide variety of embroidery stitches.)
Sienna, a 1972 customised and Cossette wigged by Shelly Trendon Gingham girl is standing on the antique Pine chest in the living room and wearing a delightful little vintage-sasha outfit with commercially manufactured socks and shoes. She does have some JJ matching toned sandals but they couldn’t be located in time.
This chest used to be full of standing and sitting Sasha Dolls which has now been replaced by ornaments and knick-knacks collected over the years due to the Sasha downsizing. The pottery vase on the left is another souvenir from Cornwall and the attractive tray was purchased from a local craft fair at Keele University. The two handmade pottery vases were remnants from my Teacher Pottery training days and the little brown candle was a gift from Chon when she went on an African Safari.
The rather imposing metal structure Moose was brought from John Lewis at one Christmas time.
Niklaus, Fritz’s s older brother, a straight nosed slate eyed Gotz lad, in a Diane Duke knitted school house design jumper and hat (a birthday present from Chris Taylor) and Pinestreetstudio Chinos and Ruthsdolls shoes. (I bought the Pinecone back from Teneriffe.) The brown pottery medicine bottle we found in our previous garden when rotavating and sowing the lawn.)
The attractive metal and wood Tricycle was another craft fair purchase.
Jac and Mike, two Trendon Dark Denim lads wearing Passion 4 Sasha outfits, are standing on my sideboard in the dining area. The picture on the wall I bought from my visit to Faversham on my 60th birthday whilst spending the weekend celebrating with Chon in Bletchingley, Surrey. The beautiful cream vase was a gift from Florida from my friend and ex Headmaster, the pottery ink-well was from Chon and I bought the religious statue from the RC Catherdral in Liverpool, when I took my class of school kids for an Easter Duty week visit.
An early proffessional baby photo of me with some other little candle gifted ornaments and an ash/pin tray purchased as a holiday souvenir.
Mike, in his specially commissioned Passion 4 Sasha hoodie outfit and JJ leather boots, climbing in the Silver Birch tree in my back garden and enjoying the last rays of the evening sun.
Just love this wide faced lad that Sarah Williams originally bought for a re-root project but then decided that he was too handsome and let me buy him. Love these new leaves are sprouting from this Speckled Laurel bush.
My dear little wide faced 1970s waif with Shelly enhanced eyes in a Dollydoodle birthday outfit from Judith and JJ boots climbing in a upright Twisted Willow tree, a £10 reject from Trentham Garden Nursery.
She’s such a little Daredevil!
Enjoying the late evening view from the cream berry Cotoneaster Tree a few feet away.
Jac, a Shelly customised 1970s Gregor wearing a Passion 4 Sasha outfit and Ruthsdolls shoes playing in my Dark Pink Cherry Blossom Tree. Well it does match his tartan shirt!
Thanks for popping by to view these photos of some of the Brood Remainers at home and we hope that all those in the UK are enjoying this fabulously hot and sunny Bank Holiday weekend.
(Unfortunately I shan’t be around here next weekend as have to go into hospital for an operation midweek but hopefully the other eight Brood Remainers will get to feature the following weekend.)
