Her doll is a Trendon 1971 Gingham girl with bobbed hair who arrived at Shelly’s in search of a new home looking very appealing in just her vest and knickers (see photo below) and is called ‘Little Kendal’ (LK for short) as Anne asked me to help her find a suitable Sasha girl to give to Cerelia since her other grand-daughter who is now two had her own baby Sasha.
LK originally came from Shelly’s but stopped to visit me here for a ‘check up for suitability’ before continuing on her journey to California. There she went off to Jan Johnson for a re-string and spa before meeting her new adopted mummy.
After Anne had bought LK she heard from the doll’s one and only previous owner telling her a little of the doll’s history.
It turns out that both she and her elder sister were given Sasha Dolls and one day LK’s young owner wanted to cut her doll’s hair into a bob. Before doing this though she was assured by her sister that the hair would grow back again just as hers did when it was cut.
LK’s bobbed hair unfortunately never grew again…. as was anticipated. Jan told Anne that she is rather different in that her ‘meant to be’ centre parting is slightly off centre and to the side which is unusual.
Cerelia, herself, took the next three photos using Anne’s camera showing ‘LK’ playing in Anne’s garden on one of their Sasha fun days together. This house belongs to some of Cerelia’s small plush toys. (Unfortunately I have just forgotten the names of this series!)
Definitely thinking that we have a future Sasha Collector and photographer in the making.
Spotting some Dollydoodles wear here!
Might even become a future Sasha Blogger! Some trellis climbing attempted here!
Many thanks Cerelia and Anne for sharing these delightful photos with us all. Hoping for more to follow.
