CHAT’N’SNAP 2016

rAnother amazing Chat’n’Snap arranged by Dee.

The theme this year was Girl Guides, Brownies and Cub Scouts and we were not to be disappointed.

At the rear of the village hall Dee had set out a lovely camp display for all participating, Sasha’s and  Gregor’s to take part , there was even a course doll and Studio doll Brownie.

There was a camp site with a brownie ring and a wonderful tent. My girls who consisted of Ruth ,a blonde centre part and Pippin, a wider faced brunette and Binky my 1968 fringe girl in Girl Guide uniform, were trying to encourage the others to join in there competition  to guess the bears name, which they thoroughly seemed to enjoy.

    1. Thank you Kendal and it is such a shame that you could not make it this time, but your health must come first. I am so excited about my visit to Switzerland I could actually implode. As to my Birthday I have decided that I will be 27 this year, hope to speak to you soon xxxxx

    Thank you SO much for sending these wonderful photos! I appreciate knowing the names to go with the faces, as I have come to know many Sasha fans via email but never in person!!

    I also loved the doll photos very much; I had never seen the English Toddler ( I assume they belong to Brenda W ?) and of course Dawn’s studio toddler is a special treat, but she does come to the USA so I have been fortunate to see some of her dolls (and also at her home after the festival in SUA in 2012).

    Again, I appreciate your making these pics available to others, and it surely looked like everyone was having a really GREAT time!!! All those Scouting uniforms were FABULOUS. Did everyone have to make a Scout uniform? Were there any for SALE?

    Thanks again

    1. Hi Susan so glad you enjoyed the post, it was indeed a great day. Those who wanted to take part in the Scouting displayed their dolls in uniforms some people made their own and some were bought. There is a lovely lady who often sells Sasha costumes and is happy to make one for you if you should ask.
