Yesterday was the perfect day to celebrate World Doll Day by going to Dawn's wonderful Sasha Fun Day.
This is my third year I have been and it was just as good as the previous years.
In 2011 it was held on June 25th and you can read about it here and see some photos of her wonderful garden, which I didn't take this year.
In 2012 it was held on just after the Sasha Festival and we all gathered at Dawns for a lovely afternoon.
Henry of course came as he wanted to meet various new friends, and very pleased he was to do so.
He insisted that quite a few of the family came with him as he knew that they couldn't go to the Sasha Festival and wanted them to have some fun as well.
It was a good opportunity for Francis to get to know Rory...who of course was dressed in what is now his reptile outfit - New Zealand Tuatara - the world's oldest dinosaur! Molly and Sally are having a little chat, Alice and Meredith seem to be somewhat dazed by all the excitement and Danni is deep in conversation with Victoria who is listening attentively. All four girls wearing their New Zealand print dresses.
Dawn seems to have collected a few more wonderful prams since last year and the year before, and I enjoyed the new scene she has set up and of course loved the prams!
Just love this gorgeous brunette in her stunning red gingham smocked dress.
I loved how Dawn has coordinated the prams with the girls dresses.
Zooming in on another favourite girl.
It was lovely to see everyone's fabulous Sasha and Gregor families.
These three boys were right characters and have been very specially customised - the young boy in the middle capturing Callie's youngest boy at the age of 8.
Just as it says!
Lovely girls, Ginny (Dee's girl) on the left, Catherine F's girl in pink and Ronnie W's three lovely girls.
The two on the left are Sarah P's stunning NP's - the boy a new lad called Billy in memory of her Dear Dad. The red is Jocelyn's lovely girl.
Just look at this line up of Sarah & Jocelyn's, aren't they fabulous?!
Here we have Plum's, Cathy's and Joyce's kids.
This lovely group belong to Dollmum and her daughter, and the little redhead on the right is
Some more of Dee and Gill's girls. Not sure who the pretty baby belongs to.
Judith's lovely toddlers in their new trendy gear!
Sorry about the quality of the photos - difficult to take with the light reflecting in from outside.
Dollmum's daughter was delighted to get to hold the studio dolls.
Love this picture - the studio doll is looking up at the huge beaming, smiling face of the lovely girl holding her.
Dawn really has a stunning collection indeed and I feel very privileged d to have been able to visit and admire her beautiful dolls.
Some more - Joyces lovely two on the right - such lovely curly hair, this girl was much admired. Cathy's girls on the left
Plum's gorgeous blonde in her stunning dungarees and boneka shoes.
Loved Plum's toddler in her Sashopotamus pyjamas!
A very enjoyable day indeed.
I did take lots of photos of all the amazing outfits and accessories for raffle donation for the Sasha Festival but haven't included them in this post to keep it a surprise, but will of course be taking photos of it when Dawn and I set up the display at the Festival.
Thank you to Dawn for all your hard work.
