Barbie Wednesday


Hello friends, today I want to share with you a few images from my Mom 's Barbie booklet.
I love these books! I am always excited to find these and I love to think about the girls who looked throught them over and over dreaming of which outfits they wanted.

Such beautiful doll dresses! These images would make wonderful tags!


Look at the check mark on this page! This book has several where my Mom had marked what she wanted. The ones she marked also happen to be some of my favorites too!


Here is what I would have checked. This Dream Kitchen is a dreamy piece that I hope to someday have!
As you know, I love cases and houses as much as I love the dolls!


Here is a recent flea market find. A figurine showing a Ponytail Barbie wearing The Little Red Riding Hood costume that went along with The Little Theater playset. This figurine is from 1995.


The original dress came out in 1964. It came with a theater program and wolf mask.


Thank you for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day, Lindsey

Hi Ladies,

What a neat post. You seem to have quite a collection, and unique, too! I've always loved Barbie, but just never fortunate enough to own more than one at a time. Have fun playing dolls!

Hugs,
Meri

Happy Barbie Wednesday! I always love seeing and remembering my Barbies which now lived at each of my daughters homes.

Midge was always my favorite one! My cousin gave her to me for my, I think it was my eighth birthday. Wow that was along time ago about 45 years this month.

Lindsey, I just adore your Easter tag. Something else new to learn - stitching on the card - you amaze me. Twyla, what a beautiful coaster pattern.
You both are so generous with your kindness and your talents. We are all so lucky for knowing you! E
