I loved Barbies - did you? I saved up and sent away to the Sears or Eaton's Christmas catalogue for mine - the Twist 'n Turn Barbie is the one I had and still have , sadly, the bathingsuit is no longer around - I had one Barbie, Carla must have had fifteen, so, I think some of my Barbie pieces were mixed up with her friends Barbie collections... I have been wanting to do this post for months, finally, I am doing it today so I can pack all this stuff away again....
How about a little fashion show with my Barbie? I had very few store bought outfits, my great aunt made most of Barbie's clothes - she had quite a wardrobe!!
My poor Barbie's feet are not in the best of condition, they're all twisted and out of shape! I wonder too if Carla gave her bangs a trim - her hair is a bit wild!!
Carla had the whole set of these Barbie cards - look what 1966 shows - my outfit!
One Christmas I got a set of wigs and hair pieces - this blondie is one of those - wearing another store bought outfit. The dress had a sheer shawl but that seems to be missing too.
Isn't that little zipper the cutest?
This is a homemade set - perfect for travel!
Party time!! How 60's is this?
Barbie even had a pair of Prince Edward Island tartan pants!
Evening wear for another party - this dress has a little top to go with it.
Barbie deserves the best - including a fur collar!
This is my Susy Goose Barbie closet - I was so proud of this, none of my friends had this, they all had the plastic Barbie bag - it's seen better days, it's missing a leg and one of the door hinges is broken, I played with this a lot and then Carla used it.
I had the Susy Goose Barbie bed too - it's gone!!
There's that Barbie head sitting in there - these are all pieces that I had with my Barbie. I had so much fun playing Barbies with my friends, I remember having fashion shows at my birthday parties.. You know, it was kind of fun dressing her up again....
This is a wonderful book that I have about all things Barbie - I don't collect Barbies nor do I want to - I'm just happy to drag my one lone Barbie and all her finery out from time to time.
I'm linking Barbie up with Junkin Joe, Time Travel Thursday , Sunny Simple Monday and The Blog Post Office
