One morning Mom came home from garage saling with a wonderful surprise for me.
This beautiful Barbie Gift Set. She originally came out in 1996. I love how they featured her full name on the box.

I found this deck of playing cards at Wal Mart today!
It's a really cute set and it was only $2.88!

As part of the celebration for Barbie's 50th birthday, a designer named Jonathan Adler designed this Barbie house.

Those corset backed chairs are so beautiful!!

I love the floor in this room!!!!!

I also found this really neat video showcasing Barbie through the last 50 years! I hope you enjoy!

Wishing you a happy day, Lindsey

Hi Lindsey, I hope you will vist a Barbie Wednesday post in your honor on my blog today. A sweet lady sent me two books. If you don't have them, they are yours. The white "novel" is such a treasure. I read it in an hour, couldn't put it down. It was so much fun! The other book has crayon on the fron flaps, but incredible graphics such as the one at the bottom of the post that would make great tags! Let me know! Elizabeth PS You have inspired me to make some scrapbook pages. Yours are just too wonderful for words!

Such a sweet Barbie gift set from your Mom ♥

How fun to see some of those awesome Barbie rooms... I really liked the "circle" room, and the red circle seating makes me think of I Dream of Jeannie's Bottle House... I must be nuts...

The Barbie playing cards are so cute! Santa left a set of Tinkerbelle playing cards in my stocking... Isn't it fun to have cards with such Lovely dreams girls on them?!

Hope you 'n your Mom had a fun time thrifting on Saturday, and I'm looking forward to hearing about your adventures...
God bless...

~hugs 'n prayers~

The room is so fabulous. Wonder what machine-loving husbands would think about a house-makeover like that!?......

And thanks for the link to the video -- our girls will love it.
