Tangerine the Traveling Sasha
Tangerine is a Sasha doll who is traveling across the country to
visit other Sasha doll lovers. She began her journeys in September
of 2006. So far, she has traveled across the southwest part of the
United States up the west coast, flew across to upstate New York,
went to the Sasha Festival in Portland, Maine, visited the Netherlands,
Switzerland, England, Spain, Morocco, Cuba, Scotland and is now
back in England. A number of people from countries all over the
world have signed up to host her. Updates will be posted as received!
where Tilily's Travels have taken her.

started her life as a Sasha Sweater - the only girl Sasha doll manufactured
in England with short hair. I read on someone's web site about an
American Girl doll that traveled around the country, and thought
that it would be a great idea to send a Sasha doll around the world.
I sent a query out to the Sasha_Mart email group, and a number of
members signed up to host her. The requirements are that they show
her around their area, take pictures, send a message to the group,
and send her on to her next stop. She has been featured several
times in Gregor's column in Sasha Friends newsletter.
(Ti-li-ly) was named by my daughter, who is quite imaginative when
naming dolls. She inadvertently became my first customized Sasha
doll, as I thought it would be a good idea to make her look different
from the other Sashas for her journeys. With advice from members
of the Sasha_Mart group, I dyed her blonde hair red (discovering
that you need to add blue to the "tangerine" color dye
so it's not flourescent orange), repainted her eyes green, painted
her eyebrows and eyelashes to match her hair, and gave her freckles.
I enjoyed transforming her so much - and got such good feedback
from other Sashaphiles - that I have continued customizing Sasha
most recent stop in her travels will be posted here. She will eventually
make it home to Albuquerque, New Mexico, but we are enjoying receiving
messages from her as she tours.
