We had a great Christmas and I received a few gifts for Christmas that are perfect to share with you this Barbie Wednesday!

Mom gave me this wonderful new Barbie book. I have learned a lot of new things that I find fascinating and plan to share with you all.

My Brother gave me a vintage Ken and Allen doll.

And then he gave me an original vintage Ken box! It even came with the original wire stand! It is so beautiful and in wonderful condition.
I can't begin to say how exciting that was to get.

A little birdie (me) told our friend Susan to get Mom (Twyla) this beautiful vintage Barbie outfit.

Mom is always telling me that this outfit called "Barbie Arabian Nights" # 0874 is one that she would pine over in her Barbie booklet.
So when Susan asked me what I thought would be a good gift that would remind her of their childhood, I told her this outfit.

Some of my other Christmas gifts included this Hello Kitty toaster!
So cute!

and digital alarm clock.

This vintage poodle planter and new Perfume!

This cute Juicy Couture necklace that has the cutest box!

Two boxes filled with some of the cutest vintage cards I have ever seen!

It's time to announce our first year blogaversary giveaway!
It will last for one week. Just leave a comment on any post between now and next Wednesday and you will be entered into our giveaway!

The winner will receive a set of Barbie tags and ornament handmade by me. They will also receive a pair of cozy house shoes and scarf handmade by Twyla.

Good luck to everyone!
I will pick the winner using a random number generator.

Enjoy ringing and partying in the New Year tonight, Lindsey

Hello Twyla
I loved seeing your Christmas gifts. The vintage Ken and Allen are great. Is Allen Ken's friend or brother? The Hello Kitty toaster is really cute and your necklace is gorgeous.
Please can I enter your wonderful giveaway?

Happy New Year, Twyla and Lindsey! I love the scarves and slippers I have from you, but these colors are great too, so please enter me too!! I saw some AMAZING barbies the other day in a thrift store, ones I had never seen before, I think they were cheap, and in their boxes, if you want I'll write down what they were and see what they wanted for them and take pictures and send you, the man who is selling them is doing a kind of estate sale thing in a little store nearby. Just let me know! Suzie

I made those same booties for everyone in the family when I was in college and had no money for Christmas presents. I also remember giving a presentation in grammar school about making these.

Thank you for a giveaway.
