I'm back! And I feel that life for me has started to slow down just a tad. Holidays are over, all the Christmas decorations are down and put away, and now settling into turning my office into a nursery!
The Barbie shelf is going away. SAD!
But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. In a short couple of years, we will have a new house. Which then I will have my own office. And the hubby said that I could have displayed AS MANY DOLLS AS I WANT TO. Now THAT is exciting! But I'll still have my dolly projects and incredible finds to share with you. I'm not going anywhere!
I was excited to find this under the tree. She has been on my dolly wish list for FOREVER.
1988 California Dream Barbie
*squee* I had such a hard time keeping the secret when I shared my last post. Her (and Dance Club Barbie) have been on my wish list and now I finally have her! L.O.V.E.
Ah, the classic 90's face. Her bangs needed a little fix up and they are styled really strange. They are in a ponytail and then flared out. They were a mess in the box so naturally (and since the box was open) she came out and got a little bit of style. And like our friend Glitter Hair Barbie, she has palm tree earrings.
Super cute outfit with a hot bathing suit too! She is so "California"-ish. And she even comes with a little camera. Unfortunately she has "sticky legs" too! I wonder why my Teresa doll doesn't. Maybe because her packaging was immaculate while Midge and Barbie had less-than-stellar packaging that had gotten damaged through the years.
Barbie comes with her own comic book called "The Treasure Map." It's actually a pretty cute read.
And look what it has! Still the original record of the song "Living Doll" written just for Barbie by a favorite band of mine, The Beach Boys!
My mom looked at the doll and contents on Christmas and started laughing like crazy when she saw this record. It's not a "real" record. It's just flimsy plastic and she was wondering how a record player could even play it. I'm not sure either but I do have a record player and I'll find out someday. I'm sure you could also search YouTube for the song as well!
So now, I had to get a picture of all three of the girls together.
I love them. And I can't wait to get them off the cardboard and display them with a pool (which I still have yet to get.) And I'm also looking to possibly get the Ken and Christie for the set. I have NEVER had a complete set of one line of dolls. This would be the first and I'm so excited to see what I can come up with!
And then maybe get her too because, well, the socks with the high heels always got me.
