Recently i was scanning all things sasha on ebay and paused to admire a sasha reroot being sold in Spain.She had lovely long brown hair, i admired and moved on.Later that week the film Lara Croft Tomb Raider was shown on TV, i loved the way Lara's long brown hair was tied in a plait. I needed a Lara, remembering the sasha reroot i turned on my computer and put her into my watching, yes this was my Lara.
When the day came i made my bid and won, Lara was coming home.Well she was taken to the post office in Spain and posted.Well i waited her arrival and i waited, after five days i emailed, was Lara on her way? yes came reply she was posted five days earlier here was tracking number and Spanish post Office said She was in uk...mmm, Uk post office said ' Not in Uk, no record' well i emailed seller to tell her that having decided to call the sasha after Lara Croft she was obviously living up to her name and decided to go travelling! Was she in europe? Asia? south America?? who knew, We emailed back and forth, seller checked with her Spanish Post Office to be told Parcel had only left Spain seven days after posting!! this he just shugged his shoulder at, she reported back to be these details and we both waited to see if and when she'd arrive.......

Dusty is named for the sixty's singer Dusty Springfield , who i met when i was about nine or ten outside the London Paladium one night in the sixty's. And as soon as i saw this sasha the name Dusty fit her so well, her hair style is very much like Dusty's of that time.

Now since i have been an admirer and 'mother' to Sasha's and Gregor's I had seen the dolls customised by Kelly and despite a rapid email was unable to manage to get one from Shelly's site sashadolluk, when scanning ebay .com i came across a beautiful doll by kelly being auctioned,she was called Lorraine no 1 in Kelly's Tin type series based on a picture called ' Lorraine So Serious'.
I was luckily enough to win her and she came home to England and i have renamed her Tamsin and her old life as been packed away.
