Barbie Wednesday

Welcome to Barbie Wednesday!

I found a 1966 Francie doll last week when I found the Twiggy! It was my lucky day! She is the first Francie in my collection. She has rooted eyelashes!

Included were some Francie fashions!

Mattel has started featuring new Barbie's for the Spring 2010 line! From the popular "Dolls of the Worlds" series, is Russian Barbie. Isn't she gorgeous?!! I love her long blue coat!

I think this one is hilarious!!!! Do you remember the I Love Lucy episode #22 "Lucy is Envious" where Lucy and Ethel dress up like women from Mars for a publicity stunt? If not, then you should youtube that episode because, wow, that episode has always stuck out in my mind from when I was little!

Pottery Barn Kids have come out with an amazing collection of sheets and pillows in a most dreamy Barbie collection!

Love it!!!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed looking at these Barbie goodies!!!

Good morning, lindsey! Happy Barbie Wednesday!

Well of course a doll from 66 would have to have GREAT eye lashes! How fun! ☺

Oh my! What a SWEET little girls room with Barbies on the wall! That would have been a dream come true room for me when I was little.

I want those Barbie sheets!!.. or at LEAST the throw pillow! As for Francie.. I always liked her, because she was "built" a little more like ME, and not Dolly Parton! (0;

Hi Lindsay
Thanks for introducing me to the Francie doll. She is gorgeous. The Russian Barbie is lovely too and she looks just like somebody out of a James Bond movie. The bed linen is adorable.

We are going to get along just dandy in the world of Barbie. I love Francie and I'll be showing my two this month on one of my doll days. I have the bathing suit in the second picture, but my Francie has the dark hair. What a great find! I'll make sure to post a couple of my Barbie stories too, you'll enjoy.

A warm welcome to your new Francie doll! What a lovely addition to your collection! And Mattel does such a bang-up job when it comes to replicating Lucy. Even in these young, Martiany funny-pixies, one can't mistake it: that's a twinkle directly channeling Miss Ball's eye!

I was at Tuesday Morning, yesterday, where I nabbed a little something special for Puppet's Christmas stocking: "Lucy Gets a Paris Gown": a miniature Lucy and Ethel-- SEE IMAGE HERE! Smitch of a Lucy's hilarious horse feedbag hat is to die for! LOL! I was thrilled to come across this "stuffer"-- God, how I love that store! There's always treasure to be had!

SparkleFarkle said...

P.S> Oops! Channeling Ethel's eye, too! Poor Ethel, she always seems to get short-changed! (Shhh! Don't tell anyone, but sometimes I like her more than Lucy! LOL!)

Sally Annie Magundy said...

I love Barbie Wednesday! I had a Francie doll too - wonder if I still do??? (One of these days I'm going to have to sort through all of my stuff I found at my parents!)

bwahahahahhahhaha! Love the Lucy and Ethel dolls, too funny!

Heidi Ann said...

Hi Lindsey! I was going to e-mail you to tell you about the Pottery Barn Kids Barbie stuff! Of COURSE, you know already!
