As many of my Sasha friends know I have a tendency to fall in love, and buy, Sasha Doll waifs… purely on account of their overall looks… and definitely regardless of their faults. Well, imo no-one’s perfect are they?
So today we are looking at one of these dear little examples, and with my apologies to Simply Sasha, (although I think that she has finally seen their light and is coming round) and anyone else who is not as keen on the Gotz Sasha Doll versions and their wonderfully unique facial expressions.
On seeing this little waif for sale on Sashadolluk, though many years ago now, I immediately knew that she was, what has now been termed, a ‘Kendal-must-have-doll!’ I named her Sophie. (Yes a named Sasha!)
…And so yet another waif joined The Sasha Brood. Whilst still on that massive task of trying to delete as many of my ‘rubbish’ photos that have unfortunately remained stored in my Pictures through lack of time (coupled with slight laziness and a tendency to put off until tomorrow what should have been done today) I have come across what I think are some rather endearing photo shots of Sophie over the years, although there must be many, many more that I haven’t had the time to find for this post.
Yes, I know that you love your fringe falling over your face but would you mind if, for just this once, I could clip your hair back so that we can all see your really pretty face?
You see, that’s so much better isn’t it? No! Surely though you can see much clearer now? No!
Unfortunately she prefers this ruffled, untidy hair look as she likes to think she is more of a tomboy.
In 2015 she travelled down to the Chat n’ Snap and was taken from there by Chris Meatyard back to her home where Sophie’s neck and arm splits were repaired and she was given a complete spa before being returned home to me. Many thanks again Chris for all your help with this.
Last month on Facebook was a ‘Sasha Doll Mini-me’ theme running and I would have liked to have joined in but at the stage I didn’t know just how to add a photo/s. Quite recently I came across these very old (well I am OLD!) photos of me and think that there just might be a SLIGHT resemblance between Sophie and I at these ages…(although I certainly wouldn’t have been allowed to let MY fringe fall over my face!)

I do hope that you weren’t somewhat bored today with this post centred on just one doll. although wearing a few different outfits and hope that at least some of you liked, or even fell a little bit in love with her, as I did/still do.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful month of May. Special wishes to all those attending the SCW next weekend. I am so disappointed not to be able to come and meet you all these but am sure that you will all have a ‘ball’ and look forward to seeing all the resulting photos.
