I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

I'm a Barbie Girl

Have you seen the new commercials for Barbie? It has these women who are about my age talking about their Barbie house with the pull cord elevator. I had that!! Then at the end of the commercial you hear a little girl say "Hey Mom! Wanna play Barbies?"



Ahhhh!! I don't know if it is some bad PMS or what but my throat tightened up and I got kind of teary eyed thinking about huge Barbie collection back in the 80's. Playing with my sisters and cousins. Making up story lines like a soap opera and always picking up where we left off. Being the oldest of 3 girls left me with nothing to pass down to Emma except lots of good memories. I remember a good bit of 80's toys. I didn't really have any of them though because all I ever wanted was Barbie's. I had Peaches and Cream,Loving You Barbie,Crystal Barbie,Western Barbie-She blinked! And I had her horse Dallas too! I had the Hot Dog stand....jacuzzi...boutique....

*sigh*

I tried to find the commercial but was unsuccessful. I did find THIS though!
