  1. Oh what a lovely idea and gesture Lorraine!
    Congrats on two years of blogging! I have no idea how long I've been blogging, it doesn't feel that long, I will have to go and look. I think I'd give away the rain that is currently pouring down on us!!
    Hugs Sharon xx

    2. Lorraine, I just went and looked and I started my current blog on the 17th July 2011!!! I didn't even realise it was one year, never mind almost two!

    3. Lorraine, this is a truly lovely gesture. I wish I could sew, cross-stitch and artwork is what I do best.

      Thank you and please enter me in your giveaway contest.

  2. That is so kind of you. Especially since I know you are trying to raise money for the Sasha festival. How is that going so far? I myself am trying to plan for 2014...I would love to enter the give-away! Of course if I was lucky enough to win, I wouldn't want the post to be too costly. Interesting that it's been two years- I didn't realize that. That's how long I have been following the Sasha community and your blog!

    1. A lady in the US made the blue dress I believe and Norvell made Meredith's dress.

    1. It certainly has! Where have the last two years gone?

      I have been blogging since 2007 (although the first was a private invite only blog). My Balancing Kiwi blog I have had since 2009 - seems incredible!

  5. Congratulations on two years on blogging. I've really enjoyed the Sasha related posts. Thanks.

    Not at all, sure just how long I've been doing it. I originally started on Blogspot but then transferred to Wordpress.

    Will try to see if I can find out tomorrow when I visit my blogs although I know at the moment that I have done 702 individual posts on Wordpress.

    Lovely girls, very prettily dressed, enjoying a celebratory scrumptious looking afternoon tea.

    1. Oh it could be scary to know Kendal! To think I have been blogging since 2007 is rather scary!

  6. I like the smocking on Marcia and Meredith's dresses, very pretty. I hope they are careful not to spill their tea on their dresses.

    1. Just got to get my son packed off on his next cruise, and then I will definitely be doing more to keep my mind off his absence - I think it will be harder this time, it has been so lovely having him home.

  10. This morning I visited my blogspot and Wordpress' blogs 'Kendalsashabrood' and discovered that my very first introductory post on there was on 28th July 2009 followed by a Sasha Doll post on 20th August 2009.

    Can hardly believe that I have been blogging for nearly FOUR years now! Unbelievable! (Three years ten months.) Where has the time gone?
    (Daren't think the other way as to how much time I have spent with my Sasha Dolls instead of doing those things and jobs that I should have been getting on with instead.)

    'Thanks' or should I be saying 'No-thanks' for high-lighting this as now feeling rather guilty as I often complain that I never have the time to do the things that should be done!

    1. Amazing isn't it Kendal? I wonder where the time has gone as well. To think I started following your blog not long after my surgery four years ago!

  11. Marcia and Meredith look lovely in their party finery. I can't believe it's been two years in the sense that your blog seems like an old friend that I look forward to seeing and have known forever. Mornings are much more enjoyable when they start out with news of Henry or another of the clan. Here's wishing you many more posts.

  21. So much to do and see and enjoy-------- It doesn't have to be Sasha Related but sure is nice when it does have Sasha in the story line.
