Sasha Celebration - part 8

It is a month already since the Sasha Celebration weekend and I still have a post about it.  We were immensely fortunate that weekend as my daughter was given several winning raffle tickets by kind, generous people who had already won prizes and liked to spoil the only child at the event.  On the last day of May she dressed the girls in some of the lovely outfits she was given and I did a quick photo shoot in the back garden on a very windy late afternoon.  The following photos are not all the outfits she received (some of those have actually appeared in previous posts about the weekend) and hopefully we'll get more photos done soon (this weekend has been a dull rainy washout so far for photos and last weekend when the weather was glorious we were just too busy with other events to find the time for photographing the dolls).

Miranda wears a very pretty lilac floral dress, matching underwear and hair ribbon (donated by Trish Smith), she is also wearing the hair clips from the gift bag Janet gave everyone at the Sasha Celebration.  The sandals by Ruth Hartley I bought last year.
Laura wears a smocked Frilly Lilly dress which my daughter chose when Kendal gave her a winning ticket.  She is wearing the other set of hair clips from the second gift bag.
Florence wears a beautifully made dress, pantaloon and double hair band set by Petrana - my daughter chose this when Kendal's ticket was called and Kendal asked her to help choose then promptly gave her the prize which my girl was not expecting. 
Miranda and Laura wear a pair of trouser sets, one of which my daughter got from the raffle and the other which she was given afterwards (one of these was donated by Trish Smith).  Miranda's set is is a 3 piece beret, long sleeve blouse and trousers, Laura's set is a 4 piece beret, short sleeved top, cardigan (with hearts knitted on either side) and trousers.
Florence wears a party dress (my girl calls it a Christmas dress) and golden bow on a hair clip which apparently was one of the dresses donated by Trish Smith
Apparently today (13th June) is World Doll Day, so these photos are our way of marking the day.

The girls look lovely and I can imagine the delight your daughter would have felt by the kindness of others. She made some very good choices.

How really lovely these dolls look in their new gear. Your daughter looks like she has had great fun dressing them so attractively for these photos.

It was super to see her again at this latest Sasha event with her usual polite, pleasant and always helpful nature and wonderful to think that she, with these delightful qualities, will form part of the next future Sasha Doll collecting generation.

Your daughter is such a lovely friendly girl that I'm not surprised people gave her their raffle prizes! When I met her last year I thought straight away what a nice child she is :)
Her dolls and their outfits look very nice indeed, what a lovely bunch of outfits they were able to bring home with them!
Hugs Sharon x

I love all of your daughter's outfits both won and chosen! I love the generosity of spirit of our Sasha friends and your daughter chose very well. What a special way to remember such a happy time together! :) xxx

What lovely people all the Sasha people there in your community are! It is so nice that they shared the winning raffle tickets so that no one would go home empty-handed. Your daughter chose some really pretty outfits. It seems that she has great taste. Your lovely dolls look like they are very pleased with their new clothes.

I am glad that all of you had such a nice time on your Sasha weekend, but am starting to wish that I lived in the UK myself so that I could attend all those wonderful events!

I know that the Sasha Festival is here in the USA most years, but unless it's coming to good old Pennsylvania, I'll be regularly missing out on that too! Meanwhile, I am really enjoying sharing in the wonderful Sasha community out there, and enjoying all your wonderful posts and happiness.

May you continue to have wonderful days of Sasha play and fellowship. Thank you for the pleasure.
