Well I thought I'd covered everything from the Sasha Celebration Weekend, then realised I'd not shared my few purchases and my raffle prizes.

So first up my raffle prizes. I was fortunate to have four of my tickets win and I would have given on of them to someone who had not been so fortunate but by the time my numbers started to come up it was nearer to the end of the raffle so most people had received a couple of nominations each by then, so I kept them.

First up I was able to bag the donation given by Sharon , which I had so wanted when she'd been showing what she was sending.

And here is Libby wearing it in the garden. I love the detail that Sharon puts into her clothes, the little hand cut flowers with button centres and heart balloon.

The second time I went up , even less to choose from but I spotted a little bag who I was sure of the maker.

and I was right, a Frances Trickett bag !

The third time I went up , yet again less but then much to my amazement I found another France Trickett item.

This beautiful needle case. Result!

Then just a few before the end , with the last prize being a Sasha with eyes painted by Janet, they only went and called the ticket I was sure was going to be the last and winning one, number SEVEN BUT they called it too early!

So I found the last piece of treasure up there , this sweet hat by Rosie Laird.

Then it was time for the finally ticket.. It was drawn and I could see the colour .. yes I had that colour... I could see one of the numbers SEVEN, I still had thirty seven in that colour ! I could see that it was just one other number in front of the seven but could not quite make it out! Then it was called TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT WENTY SEVEN! WHAT 27 !  Yes fate had done the dirty on me and given my Sasha to Jonny!  But in truth I really didn't need another Sasha , so I was pleased Jonny won her but also pleased I came quite close with my tickets 7 and 37.
On the table I was sitting on, Liss won the first prize of  the Gregor with trolley of toys, Annette won a Gotz Sasha, so it would have been tempting fate for me to get that last girl!.

I was more than happy with the prizes I did win, I'm not usually that lucky in raffles.

Next my few purchases.

I went for the dress sets I had admired when Petrana had been selling them on Ebay or her site, I could have bought soooo many, just like if confronted with Sarah Willaims outfits, one is never enough and also Judith of Dolly Doodle, I could and would have spent a small fortune if I'd managed to get over to her sales table!

So without realising it most I went for are more autumn winter sets but that's good as they'll have something to go into later in the year.

First up is this Black and gold set, I just love that combo.

Then this deep pink and brown set, I love this fabric and bought a few dress sets in this last  year as Christmas and Birthday presents for Sasha Friends but if you are anything like me , you can only buy what you like , so it's sad to see them go! So when I saw this one I just had to get it for me!

Quite an unusual colour choice for me but I do like the modern pattern of this dress set.

Loved the colours of this set with two skirts and a sweater and tights.

I also bought one summer style set but I have used it on my Kaye Wiggs girl.

Being the longer length I thought it might work and it did ! and it goes so well with her Lilac hair!

and it can also be used by the Sasha's.

Petrana  very kindly gave me a couple of the outfits I was going to buy for helping her sell her clothing. I was a top sales person , even if I do say so myself ! Not only was I making very good sales I was having to keep her in check too! ;) I was so good I was selling the things I wanted! Drat!

A little hard to see through the cover but this longer length white dress as pretty green spots and hem detailing.

I just loved this white dress with beautiful detailed hem and net underskirt.

We were also given a goody bag when we arrived.

I love that Janet? spent the time to sew the Sasha logo on. A pair of cute little shoes with contrasting blue and red ribbons with Sasha C Weekend on.A pen, note pad, doll and car make up the rest.

I embellished a little bag , seen on the left bottom corner and due to chatting and time did not managed to get to the other tables. Theresa kindly gave me everything needed to complete a mask.
Anna gave me my Marionette kit , I'll need to get some feather's to finish him/her and Emma gave me a sheet on how to make the boots and slippers, which though interesting, there is no pattern piece's in the correct size to follow, which is a shame. But then I should have paid more attention and gone and gathered up what was needed.

Kendal kindly came round giving out these little gift sets.

And the lovely Ginger gave me these wonderful sandals.

So a lovely haul of treasure did manage to find it's way home with me despite me missing out on the sales tables.



  1. Isn't it just great when you come home with all these Sasha gifts and sales buys to try on and explore rather like 'the icing on the cake.'
    I like your choices!
    I always get great enjoyment from trying on any new outfits and discovering on which doll they suit the very best.
    I usually buy several gifts too to give to special Sasha friends who couldn't get there themselves and which will hopefully make up a little for their disappointment. (Hoping that they like them when I eventually get to unpack and post them off as I find that it's much more difficult choosing items for other people's dolls!)
    I'll be looking forward to seeing your Village kids in these new outfits in the Autumn then.

    1. It is Kendal. One of the nicest things is getting to open and look at all the purchases , gifts, raffle prizes etc.
      Thank you , I liked your choices on Petrana's sales table, in fact I quite fancied them all myself!
      I find it so hard to buy for others as everything I buy I love , which means it's so hard to part with!!
      Yes now I just have to remember they have these new outfits come the Autumn !

  2. Everything from start to finish whether won or purchased or even free are just so gorgeous. I've had my eye on Petrana's black and gold dress for a while now and went to buy it the other day and it wasn't there so now I know why, serves me right for dawdling. Sharon's outfit is just perfect for this time of year, what a lucky lady you are to have come home with all those goodies.

    1. I have to agree, I did have a very good haul considering.I'm sure if you asked her Petrana would make another one.
      I loved Sharon's outfit as soon as i saw it when she donated it, so was so pleased that it was still there when my first ticket came up! :)

  3. Oooh! A lovely haul, Dee! I'm so pleased you had a great time and brought back some lovely things.

    1. Thanks Jenni. I did and I was very fortunate with what I got hold of :)xx

  4. Love the outfit made by Sharon. But I believe your girls also will be very pleased with their lovely bags, the one you won and the one you made - they might even look forward to winter when they'll wear the stunning Petrana dress sets.

    1. They will be very happy to use all these lovely things we brought back from the weekend. It's nice we can use Sharon's and a couple of Petrana's now and the other's we'll have as a nice treat when the year comes to a close.

  5. WOW you did bring a great haul home with you Dee! I didn't realise all the outfits you'd bought although I did know about the raffle prizes. I was dead chuffed that you chose my outfit, thank you for that....and I'm glad that you're happy with it.
    Petrana's outfits are lovely, and what a lot of choices! So hard to choose.

    1. I did not realise just how much I did manage to get. Loved that outfit of yours , so was over the moon to get it.
      Problem with helping out on someone like Petrana's sales table, you want to buy all of it yourself! lol xxx

  6. Very lovely outfits Dee and so nice to have the accessories too. Sharon's outfit is fantastic and Patrana's outfits are wonderful too. A great post! :) xxx

    1. Thanks Ginger , I did very well :) and thank you for the lovely sandals once again, will be most useful now the summers coming! :)xxx
