Now at Dawn’s do there is a sales tent…….those two beautiful words to a Sasha lover.This time , unlike at the festival, I sold a few things on ebay and saved a few pennies, so that I could buy what I wanted without having to spend ages trying to decide between two items.
Of course I could have bought twice or three times what I did , if I had never ending pockets but I spent what money I did have wisely.
Ashley is modelling a Dolly Doodles outfit which I am not sure if she made for a Sasha or a
Gregor, modelled here by Toby, does she know she’s gone unisex???
I think the outfit looks great on both.
Next we have Raven, modelling another DD summer outfit teamed with Boneka sandals.Now the next item’s I purchased I could not make my mind up on which one or possibly two to buy, here I was encouraged by both Plum and Cathy and also Callie to get them all, as Callie said close your eye’s picture yourself at home, would you be thinking, I wished I bought the other one as well?
In the face of such help? what could a person do but buy all three!!!!!
“George come back here please!”
” Quinn! Quinn can you look this way for Mummy please..”
“Quinn sit up please! Come along!”
” No..No ..Boys! Boys..come on you can play in a minute just let mummy take your photo…Please…George! Elton Ron….”
” Thank you Boy’s you all look very handsome in your new DD outfits. “I could not make my mind up between the one Quinn is wearing another in the reverse of white with blue and white stripe and was going to get both but then saw that the one Elton Ron is wearing had been put back, so went with that so his head would be protected from the sun, him only having such short hair. I am wondering if Plum and Cathy were on commission???? I seem to have gone down the blue route with my DD purchases , although I did love a red set and also a mint green set for Sasha but I could have spent twice what I did with Judith, her clothes are always so tempting and so beautifully made.
I purchased a few props from Catherine,s items. The kipling tart box’s contains six perfect jam tarts!Was also lucky enough to get one of her exquisite cardigan’s in a lovely creamy lemon.
and another first I had spoken to her about a dress and I bought this lovely one which Arabella is modelling for me.
I do love smocked dresses and here is a beautiful one in lilac and white tiny check.
A closer view of the smocking.
A view of the tiny heart buttons and cross belt.
Another look at the full dress.I am going to tell you a story about the Sasha festival concerning Catherine’s sales table. It was at the bottom of the stairs almost the first you came to, So when I reached it, I picked up two of her beautiful winter sweater’s and then put them down, it was not winter why would I want one!…listen it gets worse… then I picked up a smocked dress but passed…yes..passed it over to Ronny …no you have not gone deaf..or miss heard..it gets even worse I also passed over a beautiful deep cerise cardigan with beautiful pointing…yes I know was I in my right mind ?..well it was the first ever festival I had been to and also the first time I had seen Catherine’s work and did not know that it would not just sit about until I returned and I did not know what else was on sale , so I purchased a beautiful detailed waistcoat and went on my merry way ..of course when I returned all knitwear and dresses were long gone and when I got back home and looked back I realised what an idiot I had been!!!But there you go, you can but learn from past mistake’s…Catherine really should be thankful that my mother raised me well or she could have found herself rugby tackled to the ground at Dawn’s while I rummaged through her box of delights.
Oh and don’t think there is not still an item I wished I’d bought from Catherine but that appears to be the way of it!!
I am well pleased with my purchases, this time and now must start saving for the Snap and Chat where even more goodies will be available……unfortunately Catherine’s not selling any thing….but there will be lots of other great sellers there, so save save save…
