I thought I would show you my Christmas gifts which this year are almost all totally Sasha !

These are the gifts I received from my friends.
Gill bought me the sweet shop so I can use them with my shop front on the blog and of course I will need to eat and replenish the stock on a regular basis  😉

Steve gave me the union jack suit which he knew I loved when I saw it on his NP eyed boy and now the boy’s gone off to pastures new and I have an NP eyed lad ( Erik the Viking) he’s passed it on to me, also included with his gift is the tiny brown Schuco bear from the 1940’s/50’s he tells me (The Bear that is ) that he is a very good friend of Reuben’s!!!!!

Kendal very kindly gave me the red desk lamp and torch which are a perfect size for the Sashas. I also received from Kendal the beautiful  green Vintage Sasha outfit, which I was over the moon to get as I had missed the one that Sarah put on for sale and just adored the colour and I love Sarah’s smocked dresses with shorts outfits.

As luck would have it  I had bought a matching pink outfit from Sarah at the Chat n Snap in October so cannot wait for next spring/summer when I can start using these outfits on the girls!

This is my present from Paul the DH!!  About a month or so ago Cathy put a link to this on the Ruby Lane site. I went to have a look and thought what a gorgeous almost mint pram complete with it’s little apron.
I worked out the sterling cost and mentioned to Paul that this perfect Red pram with apron was on at a good even with postage price.
I saw him looking at the three I already own and I went off to reply to an email I had received from a friend.
When Paul said ” I’ll buy it for you for Christmas if you like” !
You would think I jumped at the offer but no I carried on with my email and thought about if I truly needed another pram ! Once my email was finished I thought about the fact that the price was very good for one with an apron and in such good condition and then that I could always sell one of the others later, so I accepted Paul offer to buy it and it arrived a few weeks ago beautifully wrapped in Christmas paper with a bright pink ribbon.

You can see how clean it is.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt still retains it original price ticket from the 50’s /60’s of $8.95 !!! oh to buy them for that price!! although no doubt that was a small fortune in those days!.

I bought one of DollMum’s games sets at the Chat n Snap for the Sasha Village Clan for Christmas. They cannot wait to start using all the different games.
I also bought the babies the beautiful swing by KD, details are on my sales page. I would show a photo but it’s packed away at the moment while the visitors are here but it will be featured in blog posts in the new year.

For the bears I bought this pet carrier. It attaches to the American girl bike I have and means that the bears can be transported about the garden on mass! I found this for sale on UK Ebay which was great as it saved on cost of US postage and customs charges.

I also have a new girl on her way to the Village which I bought with the money my three daughters gave me for Christmas. Well I actually bought her before they gave me the money as I saw her and she was too good to miss, so she should be here in the New Year, so more details when she arrives.

These are the Sasha cards I received from Sasha friends, I love receiving Sasha cards so interesting to see what people do.

A lovely selection.

These are the cards I sent to Sasha friends but being me I could not find the file I had put the photo in from last winter that I took especially for using as a Christmas card. When I finally found it and ordered them,on 2nd December! ) I did not order enough and had run out of time to get any extra, so if you received an ordinary Christmas card from me this year I apologise and promise to do better next!!

This is Claudia in her winter Dollie patch outfit pulling some of the bears along in the snow last Winter.

Well I think I have done very well this Christmas on the Sasha front and cannot wait to start using all these wonderful gifts in the coming year and beyond.
