My daughter came over today to
move some of
her stuff out of my shed.
While doing that we pulled some
bins from the back of the shed and
I brought them in the house to go through.
One bin was full of my old Barbie doll
clothes. They went through me, my
daughter and my niece.
Inside ~ two of MY dolls and Barbie
My daughter laughed over this poor doll.
I am not sure what happened to the hair but
my great grandma gave me this doll when I was
a young child.
The clothes are what I was excited about getting
into. Oh the memories.
When I was playing with Barbies there were
several girls my age that lived around me
and we would get together to play Barbies.
I felt so out of play cause I could not go to
the store and buy Barbie clothes. That was just
a luxury that we could not afford. I was a bit
ashamed that when I played Barbie I carried
an old suitcase full of HANDMADE Barbie
Little did I realize that I was so much
more lucky to have them then store bought
clothes. My mom sat and took the time to
make all these clothes for me and my dolls.
When I look at the work that went into them
today I do realize that I was so lucky to have
a mom that could do this for me. I am sure
that my friends are not sitting and going
through a bin of store bought clothes
today cause I am sure they did not hold
up as well as mine have.
Let me show you the love my mom
put into these clothes for me and
Lily wanted to play with them. This is what folks
used to use to polish and shine their shoes.
My mom put snaps on it and it became a mink
stol for my dolls.
Isn't she just so fancy in her mink?
But that was not all mom made me....
a fur coat for Barbie.
My Barbies were richer then I even knew at the time.
This was one of my fav dresses.
Heavy, thick, long red dress.
It dipped down in the back and would
drag the floor as Barbie walked.
Over look the wrinkled look since it has been packed
Here is the brides dress made from the same
pattern as the red dress.
Check out this cool veil.
