Barbie Wednesday


Hello Friends!

I love collecting Barbies! I enjoy sharing them with you and reading your sweet comments, stories of your own and questions about them.


I was three years old when I received my first Barbie. She was a special doll to me. My Mom let me know when I was old enough to understand that she was my first and so I made sure she always was my most well played with doll.


I used to dress my dolls up and try to comb their hair (never cut) pretty. I would then make Mom be the pagent judge and judge which doll was the best looking.


Because of the era that I grew up in, some of my favorite dolls were my Disney Princess dolls.



When I was young we would go to a flea market that had a Barbie room. Although I don't remember it, I am told that I would just love the Disney Cinderella Barbie and all her accessories.


iv>For my fourth birthday I received the entire set! I am lucky enough to remember this occassion. I also have photos and a home video of this Birthday. I will look for them soon to share.



I will always remember that Birthday as one of the best!

I remember having two or three Beauty and the Beast, Belle Barbies. I also had Snow White, Jasmine and Mulan.



I loved spending my days playing on the floor, setting up my little house for Barbie and only worrying about how I could get Skipper's cute outfit on Barbie!

Although I know that I never ever pulled on my dolls heads, I had when I was little, several Barbies and all of my Kens Heads fall off. I don't know why but I know I didn't pull them off!



I hope you have enjoyed seeing pictures of a Barbie puzzle I put together! I found this cute puzzle at a flea market.

Happy Wednesday, Lindsey

Hi Lindsey ...

That's a pretty puzzle! I enjoy "doing" them, but don't attempt it too often since our cats end up knocking pieces off the table, hiding them, 'n chewing on them ...

I really enjoyed reading about your sweet memories with Barbie! How very blessed you are to have such a kindhearted Mom that has loved you and encouraged your dreams ... weaving precious memories for you to treasure for a lifetime ♥

Hope all's going well for you at work and with your new adventure! You're in my thoughts ...

~ hugs ~

I like the puzzle, very Pink! It is nice to hear about your memories of your Barbies. My niece loved Barbies, but my three girls were never too interested. They were into baby dolls. In recent years one of my granddaughters liked Barbies so I haven't been deprived in having the fun of shopping for Barbie and her clothes.
