Little Girls LOVE Barbie....

but so do big ones too....


It is my friend Kelly's 30th Birthday next month as a collector of Barbies I thought I'd make the theme this year and so I was pleased when I found these old magazines which I'm sure I can pull apart and use pictures for tags and pages for wrapping.

So far I've received the Barbie game for, it's a reproduction of an old game and I thought it'll look lovely for the box alone!



Also on order are a couple of books and a Collectible Doll which I'll share with you as they arrive.

I've just returned from the boot sale, unfortunately one doesn't start for another week or two so that was disappointing but we did find another one where I was able to add to my Halloween collection with these items,



I am waiting for roast chicken to cook and after lunch I'm going to (hopefully!) get on with my Halloween scrapbook which is more than overdue!

PS Can anyone help me with my spacing on here?! I'm putting the spaces in the compose section but they're not carrying over to the actual posting? Anyone else had this problem?

I laid out my Halloween pages in my scrapbook this week too, I'm a bit behind.

I'll always love Barbie, and hope to have my grandaughter be a fan too. I remember the very first Barbie that came out, I was entranced from the beginnning.

Oh I have a vintage Barbie, Ken and Skipper hidden away in the wardrobe, must get them out sometime and do a post about them. Thanks for the inspiration.

Barbie's great, I always wanted Santa to bring me one as a child but she never came, when I was about 10 I saved up my pocket money and bought my own. I still have here somewhere, a bit the worse for wear now though!

I agree- that is a great Barbie box- I really like that Vintage Barbie best- the one with the chic 50's look.
