Had planned to show my Christmas doll today BUT what with still having huge problems with my computer NOT allowing me to even get onto my own blog (or the others that I follow, plus limiting access to the Sasha websites, Facebook, Paypal and Moonpig for 99% of the time) it’s been a none Sasha productive week all in all. (According to my computer geek it’s down to still being on Vista and Internet Explorer which can no longer be updated… SO sometime next week he is coming over to change me over to Windows 7…. when hopefully all my recent IT problems will disappear.)
So am making do this week with photos that have already been taken and stored in my Pictures! First up is the box of Thornton’s chocolates that Chon gave me for one of my Xmas presents. Naturally Bea has decided to show them since they are sporting a photo of her on the front.
3. On the sides is written ‘Christmas Sasha love’ and the inside was filled with my very favourite of their chocolate assortment.
Denise at Sasha Village was asking for home shelf displays on a monthly basis so I sent in this one from the corner of my living room this week. (Luckily when I looked around my bungalow I realised that I have 12 main Sasha displays (plus two smaller individual ones) so I’ll be OK in supporting her.) The two girls on display here are my 1966 Dungaree girls, on the left a Developmental girl in a vintage-sasha coat, hat and dress and on the right my Graphic eyed lass in a Ruthsdoll’s dress.
The flowers behind them were one of the first accessories that I bought after moving into this house 22 years ago. It took me about a month to finally purchase the whole bunch, buying around four flowers or sprays a week. (I thought that they enhanced the colours of my two Derwent floral two -seater settee’s.)
Last week but one Theresa O’Neill came over to visit me for the day to play Sashas! She helped me to sort out the hair and dress one or two of my girls ready for the SCW in May.
….and last week I had another lovely surprise as Petrana sent me this beautiful bouquet of Hyacinths… (though still not sure what I did to deserve it!) Their perfume is simply delicious.
The first two photos are taken on the day after their arrival and the third one a day after that to show how beautifully they had opened. A million thanks Petrana and I am pleased to say that they are still as gorgeous today.
Unfortunately because of my ‘very naughtily playing up’ computer I totally missed seeing Dollydoodle’s latest listings of the baby snowsuits that I had been waiting a good two years for now. Talk about being disappointed! I would have loved to have bought ALL of the following (although wouldn’t have dared been THAT greedy!)
Thought that these last few photos, taken when we un-expectantly came across this feature when driving back from a day’s shopping at The Trafford Centre in Manchester via the Cheshire country lanes instead of the M6 Motorway. Luckily on investigating in the car boot I found this Trendon Gregor lurking there and who was more than willing to get out and have his photo taken. Aren’t some folks clever with their wayside art?
Do hope that this rather scrambled together post has made up for the lack of the expected Xmas Doll photos. Will try to get some pics taken asap of the intended subject. Meanwhile thanks for popping by to see us and we look forward to meeting you again in our next post….though not sure exactly when that will be with these future computer changes lined up..
PS, A special welcome to my latest two new blog followers.
