I thought I would share more photos with you today of my pink Barbie tree!
This tree was a Christmas gift about 5 years ago. I discovered it at Macy's Department store and I talked about how much I wanted it constantly! But I knew that I wouldn't get it because of how very expensive department store trees are. But on Christmas Eve night which is when we open our presents, my Mom surprised me with this as my last gift! I put it up that night and kept it up until late spring! It is a 7 foot tree and is very wide. I usually somehow squeeze it into my bedroom but this year I have it in my craft room. Since I spend more time there I knew that I would get to enjoy it more! My craft room is too messy for a full shot of the tree but here is as far back as I dare show you!
I love collecting Hallmark Barbie ornaments! My Grandmother started collecting the Barbie ornaments that matched the Holiday Barbie each year and I just started to build my collection from there.
I certainly don't have all of them yet but I love them and hope that some day I will be able to go back and buy the special ones that I missed.
Every year Hallmark amazes me with their beautiful new ornaments! I was given a beautiful Barbie ornament display that came out this year that I featured in a Barbie Wednesday post several weeks back. I also received 2 of the ornaments from this years collection. They have yet to make it to my tree and may not, I think I will enjoy them all year long!
If any of you are out doing your day after Christmas shopping then you might stop by your local Hallmark store and see what they have left! This year's collection featured some of my very favorites like a large replica of Barbie's famous open toed heel in glittery pink and small replicas of both Barbie and Ken in their original boxes also available in miniature size.
Luckily, now days I can go to ebay to find more of these beautiful ornaments. Of course I am always on the look out at Flea Markets and Antique stores to find good deals on these beautiful little works of art.
