Barbie Wednesday

Hello Friends, First I would like to thank you all for the Birthday wishes!
I want to show you another beautiful Barbie I received for my Birthday. She is from the Silkstone Collection, called Lady of the Manor Barbie. Both her and my amazing American Girl Barbie were gifts from my wonderful Brother this year.

I love this Mattel photo showing off her beautiful dress! I had never seen her before my Birthday and was thrilled to add such a lovely doll to my collection.

I love this closeup of her jewelry!

Here is a closeup of her dress! The ribbon flowers and seed beads are amazing!

Lady of the Manor Barbie came out in 2006. She was created by designer Robert Best. There are less than 6,300 dolls worldwide! She was designed to capture the posh life, during a fab British Invasion.

Hope you are having a lovely week, Lindsey

A truly gorgeous Barbie! I am suddenly tempted to become a collector, too. :) Did I ever tell you that I first learned to knit by making my own Barbie clothes as a girl? I may have mentioned it, but I can't remember. Other girls had store-bought Barbie clothes, but mine were knit by my Grandmother (and then later by me, once I learned how). Though I thought they were dorky at the time, I look back with really fond memories. After all, how many Barbies have custom hand-knit costumes? ;)

Oh, my goodness, Twyla. She's stunning! I love that dress and can appreciate how much work would go into a full-size one. Wouldn't that be delish?

What a beautiful Barbie--I used to have a Barbie--I think I got her in 1959 and played with her for years. Somehow she got lost when my children were little and we moved--I'd sure love to have another one with the striped bathing suit and the cottony hair! They had such pretty faces--not at all like the modern faces they have today.
