Barbie


A birthday gift from a dear friend and her family. A 1959 collector's edition of Barbie. Hey Barbie and Madonna and I are all 50!

I always wanted a Barbie as a child, never got one. I always wanted to have children who would play with Barbies and my boys were never into that. Now I finally have a Barbie, my first Barbie ever!

Talk about excitement...

Awesome--some pretty well perserved dames, too! I'll see if my Mommy will sew her some clothes for your next birthday to compesate for the deprivation in childhood! [hahah] Lisa

Thanks Maria - and orange is a really gorgeous colour , isn't it, very trendy..btw, couldn't participate in your pay it forward idea as I REALLY can't do art and cratf so no one would want a hand made gift from me. Truly!

I've had my eye on that Barbie for some time - she is seriously stylish! Lucky you. Maybe next birthday you will get a lovely pink convertible for her to go for racy drives in the country...
