Meet Taisie!  (SOLD)
  Taisie is a special doll created for the holiday season 2012!  She began as a 1970's girl with badly falling hair.  She has had some playwear, but she was well worthy of a remake and is now a whole new personality!

 Taisie's is named after the legendary Irish princess with bright blue eyes.  With her flyaway blonde hair, ethereal aurora and in her blue and silver snowflake outfit, hand sewn by Dreaming Under The Lilacs, she looks like a winter sprite!  But on her feet, she wears a wonderful pair of handmade ice skates, made especially for Sasha!  Sasha Morgenthaler created special dolls for the winter; including ice skaters, and Taisie follows that tradition!

Taisie wears a very high quality synthetic wig by Monique.  It has mohair like qualities, but it is very durable and soft.  It is glued so that it is adhered carefully all around, so it can be pulled back in a ponytail and still looks great!  It can be styled in many ways; the front part has a "skin" cap so that it can be parted different ways. 

 Taisie's eyes have been patterned after Sasha's studio doll style.  She has lightly blushed cheeks which accent her blues, along with her strawberry blonde hair color.   She has a very light sprinkling of freckles. 
She has some playwear, but no chews or strange odors.  She has been cleaned inside and out and restrung with all new elastic.  She has a stain on the back of one leg that lightened considerably when I washed it.  I have not tried to remove it yet with clearasil, but will be applying it over the next few days.  Fortunately, it is light and on the back of her thigh. 
  Taisie is $329 and includes her entire outfit, including skates.  US Shipping by Priority based on zip code; Express overseas/international is $51.  

While Taisie's feature and hair color combination were created with a winter look in mind; she is versatile to dress any way you like! She is a fabulous doll to display any time of year!  If you would like to adopt Taisie, email me!

Kelly Wenarsky Custom Sasha Dolls: An Album

 I have been asked several times if I have an album of my previously made custom Sasha dolls.  I do have a facebook album of many of the dolls I have created; at this link: 

But I have also decided to place as many photos as I can here on this blog.  All of these dolls are previously re-created Sasha dolls.  They have all been sold, but if you are interested in new dolls, email me at to be added to a mailing list!

(SALE PENDING) Meet Halliana!  Halliana began as a mid 1970's Gregor in need of a remake.  She has been restrung, repainted and rewigged and is now a one of a kind Sasha girl!

I wanted to experiment more with Sasha's technique of using a pink was behind the eye features; something she did very frequently on her studio dolls; while at the same time, creating a rounder iris and higher center of the eye lid.  I really do like the way Halliana came out with her wide, innocent features.  I hope you love her too!

 She will come fully dressed in this beautiful handmade outfit by Dreaming Under The Lilacs.  My 10 year old wanted to be involved, and she knitted her this little shawl and sewed on this button that she found. (I'm glad my daughter can knit - because I cannot! :)  Since she's only ten, it's not perfect, but looks as if Halliana may have made it herself, to adapt her short sleeved dress to cooler, Autumn weather!

 On her feet are velvet shoes.  Her wig has been cut and styled just for her and is a high quality acrylic.  It is cut in a way and has been adhered to her head so that it can be pulled back, braided, put in ponytails, etc. and it still looks lovely.

 Little prop friends not included.....but she loves little dolls and toys!

She will be sealed and comes with a certificate identifying her.  I'm not sure how many more dolls I will have time to do before Christmas, so this might be a good opportunity Christmas shop!  :)   Hallianna is $370; if you are interested, please email me at  Express overseas shipping is available as well.
