Please do not think poorly of me but I am re-posting. I wrote this post before I knew many of you and before I joined Vintage Thingies Thursday. It holds such special memories for me, I thought I would share it again. sorry for cheating!!!
I thought I would share a little bit about my childhood. I loved Barbie, I was born September 16, 1955 and Barbie was born on March 9th 1959. I got my first Barbie for Christmas 1960.
This is my case....
In those days you would get a little booklet with your doll
and I would spend hours looking and hoping for certain outfits. You had one doll, and the outfits were sold separately.
I then was lucky enough to get Ken, her boyfriend,
Midge her best friend
and Skipper her little sister.
One Christmas I received the whole Wedding Party Outfit. It was the best!
I still have my Barbie things and whenever my girls, (27, 24, 12) were sick, they would be allowed to play with my Barbie and clothes. When I was little, I would go to bed and when I would wake up in the morning my Barbie had a new outfit on ,that my Mom had made for me! I know some of the items look old and very well loved and may be worth money, but I would not part with them, not even for a million dollars!!
