To sort out and let a few more of my dolls go down to Sashadolluk to hopefully be adopted out to new homes.
I’m unfortunately one of these people who immediately love and become VERY attached to their dolls whether they be waifs or strays, customised or the minty/gently- played with… so therefore find it very hard to let go when needed.
So, as this was one of my slightly better health-wise days and since the warmth and light in the conservatory was conducive to taking a few photos I decided that seeing them re-photographed (plus looking at some older snaps) might help with these mammoth decisions.
A random nearby group was therefore selected and taken into the conservatory.
Firstly a Frido 1969 PJ boy who still has his gold printed backed tag, tube and original outfit. He is wide faced and has beautiful blue eyes with the pin pick pupils.
Here he is wearing a Dollydoodle hoodied track suit and T shirt with commercially manufactured trainers that he attended the 2016 SCW in.
Next is his sister, a Frido 1969 Gingham girl with her printed backed gold tag and gingham outfit. She again is wide faced with beautiful eyes and gorgeous silky two toned blonde hair… although her lips have oxidised over time.
She is seen here wearing a delightful Sharon of Spain complete Ra-ra outfit and commercially made bar shoes.
This was the eBay photo that I purchased her from ALL those MANY years ago!
These two, brother and sister (or twins?) have always stood side by side together on the bookcase and usually complimented each other in their clothing colours.
This Frido 1966 Blue Cord Graphic eyed FCP girl came to me with her original blue cord dress and pants and old rather yellowed vest but unfortunately missing her gold tag and shoes and socks. She was recently re-strung and hair washed by Brenda Walton.
She is wearing one of vintage-sashas very first Dungaree outfits and some red checked material trainers from Little Princess Frocks. On her back she carries a little denim rucksack.
(Couldn’t find any older photos of her. Hence the extra ‘library’ photos.)
Here is a 1966 Frido Jeans girl with her eyes, I think it was mentioned, painted by the Manchester art student. Here she is wearing one of only two Pinestreetstudio sailor outfits (Cindy kept one for herself and let me buy the other) and commercially made socks and JJ bar shoes.
Hoping that the above photos might help me make a few more decisions as to who goes or stays for a little while longer and that you have enjoyed seeing these photos. Thanks for dropping by.
