I am making 2013 the year of the blonde and to start the year rolling I have put on this photo of Belinda ( Belle) my 1968 single fringe Sasha.

She has the most beautiful face as do all 60's girl's.there is something about these older Sasha's, I t could be that the hand painting of the eyes and face is what makes them so special.

I was lucky to get Belinda in almost her complete original outfit minus her shoes but was then able to find a pair for sale on ebay and so she now has her shoes to.

I always put my Sasha's original clothes away and change them into a new outfit when they arrive because I like to 'play' with them by dressing them up and using them for this blog .I worry if I buy a Sasha or Gregor who is minty and sometimes I have to sell them on because they are too fresh!

So this year it's blondes and if anyone would like to send me a photo when it's coming up to a new month I will be happy to use it .



" and Bears, It's the year of the Blondes and the bears........." whispers Mossy.....


  1. Well obviously blondes (and bears?) it is then. Sorry brunettes! You'll obviously have to wait until the year 2014!
    Belinda/Belle is absolutely charming. I too love these 1968 SF girls although at the moment I only have two, one redhead dungaree and the other a blonde wide faced waif (on account of her hair cut.)
    Sasha love from Kendal.

  2. Belinda is super...I do love the single fringe girls my SF girl Ellie is definitely one of my faves.
    Most people have 'blonde moments' trust you Dee to have a 'blonde year'!!!! :)

  3. Maybe Mossy is trying to claim being a blond bear!

  4. May you have a new year filled with lots of delightful surprises. I wish you a very sweet and prosperous New Year!

  5. She's lovely! I have just one blond girl and am very happy to have her, they are so pretty, aren't they! And what a cute little bear too!
