She has arrived! No I did not cry! She is very unique! and first I was rushing around trying all sorts of clothes on her and taking photo's but now I have calmed down and decided that Anastasia and myself need to spend some time getting to know each other and so for now I will just put on this photo which was the only one that in the end looked really nice.
The DH cannot see what all the fuss is about and as just said she's got a look of Hattie!
That outfit is just perfect for her! She looks stunning in it.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that your husband can't tell the differences between her and Hattie but it's so easy to forget that we, well I was anyway, were very similar to him in the begining of our collecting.
There was no internet or Sasha collectors around to ask, discuss and discover what we all know now, when I first started to collect and I couldn'tn't understand why some of the dolls that I purchased didn't look as lovely as some of the others. Of course now it's common knowledge about the earlier eye paintings etc.
So pleased that you are 'over the moon' with her and ready to enjoy some super times together.
She is absolutely beautiful and quite rare with the blue eyes and red hair.
Thank you Kendal. I am glad I stopped myself from putting a lot of jumbled up photo's on! not how I would her début on the blog to have been.:)Delete
She's been sitting beside me wearing a linen dress which look s quite nice but she's agreed to try some others on later.
Apologies for the couple of spelling mistakes in the comment above (beginning and couldn't for starters) but have been on the computer this morning for far too long and getting quite dizzy as having to delete thousands of un-necessary photos stored in my 'Pictures' so that my laptop can be sent away for a repair on it's left click key.ReplyDelete
Daren't even begin to think of being without it for well over a fortnight!!!
Again, a fabulous doll, Dee. Lucky you.
That is the problem with the internet one minute becomes one hour so quickly and then the day is gone and nothing done!Delete
We have two computers, the family one and the DH's work one plus the DH now has a ipad and the no 2 child a laptop, so I can still get me fix as long as the connection does not fail!!!!
Well, Dee what can I say? She is absolutely fabulous!! I bet you were up at the crack of dawn waiting for the postie to arrive :) Enjoy your new girl...I look forward to seeing her in the 'vinyl' at your Sasha day in October and don't forget my hug you promised me :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Ronny of course you can have a hug and I get Lonely for a weeks visit..... :)Delete
Ooo-dreamy. The white is gorgeous on her. Your photos are every bit as lovely as Shelly's. Sounds like such a nice day.ReplyDelete
Thank you Julie, my rushed one's were not so good :0 which is why I am going to take my time with her!Delete
I think she's going to be a bit like that actress( Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond) who said " I'm ready for my close up" Lol
Ohhhh how exciting. I think Dad O has a bit of a soft spot for Hattie!ReplyDelete
I wonder if Anastasia Valentine will be as feisty?
She certainly seems to be enjoying all the attention-that looks like a very satisfied smile.
Wishing you all happiness.
Thanks Rosie, I think the DH does have a soft spot for all the Sasha's and Gregor's, when I say I am putting one up for adoption he accuses me of running a Dr Bernardo's!!Delete
I think Anastasia Valentine knows her own mind , just like Hattie but without the strange Helena BC clothing...I hope !
Just a quick note to say congratulations on your new arrival Anastasia. She is just beautiful and her picture just perfect.ReplyDelete
Enjoy getting to know her.
Not quite believing she is living here in the village yet!
Congrats Dee! She's really very pretty and has a lovely colour hair and those eyes, they're gorgeous. I think the white outfit looks great on her, these girls look so nice in white with their tanned skin!ReplyDelete
I look forward to seeing more photos of her on here as she settles in!
Big hugs Sharon in Spain xx
she is trying different clothes on trying to find 'her'style!
I am sure she will be 'arriving sson' into the village properly
