I was out at work this morning!! (Yes I had to work on this bank holiday weekend !) and a box arrived for me , a lovely doll sized box!
It had arrived very fast from Switzerland and I knew what was inside! Well I thought I did !
I can hear you all now, A Sasha ! Well of COURSE!!
And here she is ! My very first Course doll. I had wanted one of these for a while and nearly bought one at the beginning of the year from Shelly’s then had to pull out due to unexpected expenses. So I had been watching out for another one. I saw this young lady a month or so back for sale on ebay but I was already buying another Sasha so had to watch her go by.
Then I was given the opportunity to contact the seller and I asked if the course girl had sold ? And as you can all see the answer was NO!! So I asked to buy her and here she is!
She is wearing a real hair wig and it’s RED! My favourite colour in Sasha’s and all connected to Sasha’s and the beautiful smocked and embroidered dress by Thu Cuc Faes. here is a back view.
These dolls are very top heavy and so are hard to stand but I managed to prop her against this piece of trellis on the covered bench to take the photo.
I decided to remove the hair from the plait and it’s lovely and long.
She is such a delight, feels lovely to hold. I have to say that she is one of those dolls, for me anyway, that since she’s come and I have handled her I feel very happy that she is mine, if you know what I mean.
Obviously we are happy when we receive a new Sasha etc but this girl is one of the one’s that’s made me smile and lifted my mood.
Kendal told me these girl were lovely to handle and they are!
Another back view, this time with her hair down, what’s not to love about this girl!
When I removed her from her box and was showing her to Paul and my daughter Lindsey I said now she needs a name. Lindsey suggested Beatrice, Bea for short and I thought it was just perfect for her,
So this is Beatrice my first Course girl.
Now in the box was something else I was expecting to arrive at the same time and something that was a complete and delightful surprise!!
YES! Another two red heads only one of which I was expecting ! The red no navel , who needs a partial re root and a repair to the inside of one of her arm holes in the body ( Paul’s department ) but I was not expecting the slate eyed head that also arrived!
This lovely waif’s hair is missing quite a few plugs and she has a mark on one side of her face on her cheek, it’s not showing up in this photo for some reason , her hair is the pinky red , she also has a rub to the end of her nose.So this lovely waif , who is body less! was a complete surprise and I am looking forward to seeing what I can do with her once all my other projects are completed!
Well I am sitting here smiling and so happy with these fabulous Sasha’s ! I must thank the lovely Lady in Switzerland who sent them all to me and especially for this extra head , it now appears I no longer need another red haired slate eyed Sasha, I just need to build my own!!
