Reaching out....

Seeing the ladder against the tree was an opportunity too good to miss...

Gosh quite a gap between rungs...but I think I can do it...

Now if I lean forward just a little....

I might be able to reach the apple.

Just a little bit more....

...getting closer 

Got it!  

Shall I eat it now or see if Mum will use it to make an apple crumble?

Pondering decisions....

Introducing Barbara

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.
