Barbie Wednesday


Hello friends!
I found this wonderful treasure at an Antique store this past weekend!
A Barbie and Ken Jigsaw puzzle from 1963!


I didn't know at the time when I bought it, if it was complete, but I loved the box enough to get it and hoped that it would be complete. It was!!


I love the scene! A bubble Cut Barbie and Ken at a Wishing Well with a castle behind them that looks an awful lot like the famous Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany.

Wishing you all fun, Lindsey

What a beauty, I have never seen one like that. I love your craft room you must have worked so hard to get it like that but what a lovely space. Well Done.

What a lucky find with all of it in one piece! I always look towards the Barbie post. I don't have another blogger that post on vintage Barbie. It's so fun and refreshing to me that you are keeping vintage Barbie alive and kickin' at your young age. That is way...cool Lindsey!

That is the most totally adorable Ken and Barbie picture. I understand why you had to buy it! I also love the little house on your banner...oh, how I love houses like that. And I adore the bluebirds under the banner. Blue birds make me really happy. Such a cheerful blog!
Hugs,
Suz
