The Sasha girls are excited to see what’s in this little box that has just arrived for them.
One of the girls (a very pretty 1970 Trendon blonde Gingham wearing a beautifully smocked and made dress by Jill Mackley of ‘Frocks and Socks’ for my birthday present) carries in it in from the hall….
…and opens it up for all of them to see. Inside are four delightful tiny hair slides.
Lorraine sent me these delightful little hair slides for my Sashas as the third part of my birthday present.
Many, many thanks indeed!
My girls too wish to thank you very much indeed, Auntie Lorraine.
Below we see a few of the girls wearing them. First to try one on, in the shape of a dainty little butterfly, is my 1966 Frido Developmental red head Dungaree girl as she felt that the slide colour went perfectly with her Dollydoodle hoodie.
Next in turn is my little 1970 Trendon brunette wide faced gingham waify tot in Sarah William’s open fronted dress …which was again a birthday present to me. Aren’t these birthdays GREAT! My Sasha Brood definitely benefit enormously from them thanks to my daughter and my wonderful Sasha friends. (The rest of my extra large family and I don’t exchange presents unless it’s a very special birthday number or they are under 21 years.)
The fabric of the butterfly is beautifully detailed with embroidery
The second little slide is in the shape of a flower in blue, green and yellow. This was quickly snapped up by my small 1969/70 minty blonde Gingham girl but who is seen here wearing another of vintage-sasha’s cute white collared and cuffed dresses.
Nestling in the centre of the flower there is a tiny sparkling diamond. The girls are absolutely thrilled with the sparkle!
The third and fourth slides are a matching pair in the form of a little silver bow with another tiny diamond in the centre seen here firstly on my Frido 1966 blonde Jeans Developmental doll.
She is wearing a very attractive dress by Egonbrookes in patchwork using silks and a selection of Liberty prints.
All the above photos were taken against the superb English country garden backcloth that Shelly so very kindly gave me for my birthday. Many thanks again Shelly.
The pair of slides then went onto be worn by my Trendon 1970 wide faced girl who insisted that they matched yet another of my ‘gifted for a Christmas present’ vintage-sasha outfits.
I think that they look absolutely delightful on her too.
This was one of my rare eBay doll purchases.
I really need to maybe remove her faded lip paint one of these days.
As I mentioned in my title this was my 600th blog post and I hope that you enjoyed it on this our ‘World Doll Day’ as I’m afraid that I will have to take a break from blogging until after the festival as need to spend this next week trying to undo the damage that the recent high winds and rain have done to my garden and re-sow some more of the Runner Bean seeds which due to the latest cold spell haven’t all germinated. Plus it’s my daughter’s birthday the week of the festival.
Hopefully on the 24th/25th June I shall then start to list any of the photos that I managed to take during the shortened time (Friday afternoon to Sunday morning) that I will be at Stratford-upon-Avon….but I’m not holding out too much hope as my camera basically doesn’t take kindly to ‘snapping’ in artifical lighting unless it is on a tripod with a wide lens aperature (and I’m unfortunately not taking the tripod as I already have too much baggage with the sales table items.)
