My first Sasha doll arrival for the year is the lovely Barbara. She came with Lena (the Sailor baby) the week before last. When I first saw one of these girls at the Sasha Doll Festival this year I thought I would quite like to have her one day, never suspecting that wish would come true only a few months later.
I always take 'arrival' photos of my dolls and here is Barbara's.
She is wearing her denim skirt so I believe she is the first year these were produced, so around 1997.
She has a cute splattering of freckles, although they don't show up especially well in this photo.
Fortunately the day was nice when she arrived so she got to go for a wander in the garden.
Love how the sun is reflecting in her hair.
I am really pleased with this girl and absolutely love her.
I haven't had a Sasha doll arrive since I think it was late October or November last year and I'd almost forgotten how exciting it was to get a Sasha package in the post! I have of course had other dolls arrive (and some depart) in that time, but there is nothing quite like a Sasha (or Gregor) doll arrival!
Thank you to the lovely person who made this dream a reality for me.
