Every now and then some one will ask me where do I store my Barbie's. I never have a really good answer to that. I don't have my entire collection in just one place.

I have them separated between my bedroom and my craft room. I used to keep them all together in the craft room but the space just wasn't big enough.

Now I have my most special items in my room. I have cases on my bookcase and a house on top of my dresser. Their are just boxes here, there, and everywhere!

But this is how it use to look a couple of years ago when it was all together in the craft room.

Since my favorite pieces to collect besides the dolls are the houses and cases, I have a much harder time finding room for it all. Let me tell you they take up a lot of room!!!!!

I hope and plan to some day have a whole room to devote to just my Barbie collection.

Until then I just enjoy and rotate my collection around as much as I can so that I can see it all!

I am really lucky to have the collection that I do! I enjoy it and I enjoy sharing it with everyone here on our blog.

If you can believe it, I think I am running out of things to show you as far as my own personal collection. It's been almost a year now that I have been showing off my collection. On June 10, it will be one year!

Not that I am saying I will stop doing Barbie Wednesday but it is starting to become a struggle with remembering what is left that I haven't shown!

Someday I want my room to look like this! I can't imagine having a collection that looks like this but you never know! I just love how this display looks. It takes your breath away right? :)

And of course I would like to say that if any of you have a Barbie that you would like to share that you are welcome to grab my banner and you use it for your own Barbie post! I would love to see them!
Wishing you fun, Lindsey

Good morning, Lindsey! ♥

Well, since I'm one of those girls who asked where you keep everything- thanks for answering! ☺

I've never even come close to having such a large collection of anything! It must be a lot of fun. ♥ Wish you could have that doll room now but until then- have you considered the ceiling?

If you're coming to the end of showing us your personal collection you'll just have to buy more to add to it!!!

Oh, Lindsey - I am just so unbelievably envious of your fabulous collection. I am just sitting here clicking and reclicking on the pictures to make them bigger and study every detail. Wow.
Seriously - I can't stand it! My envy is making me crazy. Your collection astounds and delights me.

I think instead of a Barbie room you need a whole Barbie house : ) It is fun to see your collection. I hope you have a good week.

Hi Lindsey
I always love seeing your collection. You must continue with your posts, don't worry about repeating things. I wish I had a room just for my collection of Sindys. Perhaps we should start our own doll museum between us?!!!!
I love the Barbie boat and all your cases. My favorites are my houses too and all the horsey things that Sindy had. One day when I can get to my collection I will have to have Sindy Sunday or something! Your collection is amazing. Thanks for sharing it with us every week.

I hope you will continue showing us your collection! I don't mind seeing a photo again or you could feature one doll each week! I just LOVE seeing them all! And appreciate all the wonderful info you pass on! Thank you, sweet friends!

Wow Lindsey, It is amazing to see your collection all together! I saw a white furniture piece on top of the big house that was a set I had. How fun to see it again! Great post, you could always have Scrapbook Thursdays and teach us how to make beautiful pages! E

Wow!!! That is some collection you've got there! You really do need a whole room devoted to your Barbie stuff, don't you!?

Found you by surfing late at night. .. I just have to say my 5 yr old dd would be in heaven turned loose in your home... I don't think we would see her for days... she may fall asleep but would not surface for food but maybe for a play partner. :)

Even at the advanced age of 5, just turned, she has started on quite the collection for herself.
