A BARBIE, A CAT, AND A CHAIR


MY  DAUGHTER  HAS  A  COLLECTION  OF  OVER  300

"BARBIES!!!"

HER  BARBIES  WERE  NEVER  TAKEN  OUT  OF  THEIR

BOXES.   MY  MOTHER,  AMY'S  GRANNY  BOUGHT  THE

FIRST  EVER  HOLIDAY  BARBIE  WHEN  AMY  WAS

BATTLING  CANCER  AS  A  CHILD  AND  GRANNY  HAS

BOUGHT  HER  ONE  EVERY  YEAR  THROUGH  THIS  YEAR.

AMY  ALWAYS  TOLD  GRANNY,  SHE  WANTED  A  HOLIDAY

BARBIE  UNTIL  GRANNY  WAS  IN  HEAVEN.   ISN'T  IT

SO  IRONIC  THAT  AMY'S  GRANNY,  GRANDMOTHER,

MOTHER,  AND  AUNT  ARE  LEFT  WITH  THOSE  MEMORIES.

SOME  YEARS,  GRANNY  HAD  TO  HAVE  MY  SISTER

SHOP  IN  PHOENIX  FOR  THE  HOLIDAY  BARBIE

AS  NOT  ONE  COULD 

BE  ONE  FOUND  IN  OKLAHOMA.

IN  THE  NEXT  FEW  WEEKS  I  AM  GOING  TO  POST

A  PICTURE  OF  MY  MOTHER  WITH  ALL

"TWENTY  THREE  HOLIDAY BARBIES"  EVER  PRODUCED.


THE  EIFFEL  TOWER  BARBIE  IS  ON  MY  WISH  LIST. 

SHE  IS  ONE  IN  A  SERIES  OF  WORLD  TOUR  BARBIES.

I  THINK  ANYONE  WHO  ADORES  PARIS  WOULD  WANT  HER.

LOOK  AT  HER  ELEGANCE...I  AM  NOT  A  BARBIE  COLLECTOR

BUT  THIS  ONE  I  SIMPLY  DROOL  OVER  AND  MUST

HAVE  HER.  AMY  WOULD  BE  SO  EXCITED  BECAUSE  SHE

HAS  DARK  HAIR...MOST  BARBIES  ARE  BLONDS.  I  HAVE  A

FEELING  SHE  IS  GOING  TO  BE  IN  SHORT  SUPPLY  BECAUSE

OF  COURSE  BARBIE  COLLECTORS  WOULD  WANT  HER

AND  THOSE  WHO  LOVE  PARIS  WOULD  DESIRE  HER.

I  HOPE  MATTEL  SEE'S  MY  POST,  (AS  IF  THEY  WOULD)

AND  SENDS  ME  THIS  BEAUTY  REPRESENTING  PARIS. 

 WE  CERTAINLY  HAVE  BOUGHT  A

LOT  OF  BARBIES  OVER  THE  YEARS........

WALKER  WANTED  TO  POSE  FOR  A  PICTURE  AND

WISH  YOU  ALL

A  HAPPY  NEW  YEAR.

HE  IS  NO  LONGER  A  KITTY  AND  HE  LOVES  TO  EAT.

HE  IS  A  BIG  BOY.....BUT  SOOO  VERY  LOVING  AND 

ENJOYS  POSING  FOR  HIS  PICTURE  TO  BE  SNAPPED.

I  WON  THIS  PRECIOUS  CHAIR  IN  A

GIVE  AWAY  FROM

SUSAN  AND  BENTLEY.

SUSAN  IS  THE  CREATOR  OF  THIS  LITTLE

BEAUTY  AND  BENTLEY  IS  HER  COLOR  CONSULTANT...LOL

IF  YOU  DON'T  KNOW  SUSAN  OR  HAVE  BEEN  TO  HER

BLOG,  PLEASE  CLICK  ON:


SUSAN  IS  AN  INTERIOR  DESIGNER  AND  HAS  A  BEAUTIFUL

BLOG  AND  HOME.

YOU  WILL  SEE  THIS  CHAIR  IN  A  LATER  POST  AS  A

VERY  SPECIAL  PERSON  HAS  CLAIMED  IT  TO  SET  IN.

THANK  YOU  SUSAN.  I  WILL  TREASURE  THIS  CHAIR  FOREVER.

TWO  SURPRISE  KITTIES  CAME  THROUGH  THE  MAIL

TO  ME  TODAY.   THEY  ARE  SO  SWEET  AND  SO  IS  THE

LADY  THAT  SENT  THE  CARD.

THANK  YOU  HOLLY.

I  READ  THE  STORY  AND  HAVE  NOT  STOPPED

CRYING.

YOU  KNOW  THIS  DEAR  LADY  FROM  HER  FREE  GRAPHICS:


HOLLY  MAKES  BEAUTIFUL  JEWELERY  AND  SHE  WAS

A  BLESSING  TO  AMY  AND  LEILA  THROUGH  AMY'S

ILLNESS.  SHE  WAS  ALSO  A  BLESSING  TO  ME

YOU  ARE  ONE  OF  GOD'S  ANGELS,  HOLLY.

LIST.  DON'T  EVER  UNDER  ESTIMATE  THE  POWER  OF

PRAYER.


"COME  UNTO  ME,  ALL  YE  THAT  LABOR  AND

ARE  HEAVY  LADEN,  AND  I  WILL  GIVE  YOU

REST."

~MATTHEW  11:28

HAVE  A  SUGAR  SWEET  DAY

Good morning Debbie, I hope that you and your family had a wonderful New Year.

I am looking forward to seeing all of the pictures/posts with the Barbies.

I also want to let you know that the prayers from you and others are helping. I've had a couple of really good days in a row and I'm so thankful for the prayers and for feeling well!

Hugs from Heidi

HELLO GIRL FRIEND - WELL I HOPE YOU GET YOUR PARIS BARBIE FOR THE COLLECTION - SHE SOUNDS LIKE A DOLL! SANDIE

Stella said...

I have some Barbie's that my grandchildren play with that belonged to my daughters. They are a little worse for wear but well loved. I hope you find your Paris Barbie.

Linda said...

Hi Debbie, Thank you for your kind words. I just became a follower of you too. You have a lovely blog that I will return to many times. Good luck on your bag...they are so much fun to make. I too wish I had all of the bags shown. See you soon.
I loved Barbie too. I never had a real one. Just a copy. Still would like to have one now...

Mya said...

My daugher's Barbie's will never look the way they did when first taken out of the box. They all look shop worn.
It is nice that you have Barbies in great condition - look forward to your photos. The Paris Barbie is new to me - a real stunner.
Thanks again for managing the prayer list.

I must say I do not miss steapin' on those little Barbie heels in my bare feet!!! My granddaughter never got into the Barbie scene but my daughter, the Social Butterfly did.

Oh so many needs there honey. My prayers are for each and ever one.

Angel is not doin' as well as I'd like to see. She is very weak and has a feeding tube. It just breaks my heart to see her go through this.

God bless you sweetie and have an extraordinary New Year!!! :o)
