Pink Saturday 10/17/2009



Happy Pink Saturday!
Thank you Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting each week.
Check out her blog for more pretty pinks.

This Saturday I am sharing the new 2009 Holiday Barbie. When my daughter and I saw her we were so excited. She is wearing the most beautiful pink gown this year!

This year is Barbie's 50th Anniversary. So it's just fitting that she should be wearing her signature color for the holidays.

Barbie brings back such wonderful memories from when I was a girl. My favorite pass time by far was to "play Barbie's" . My Mom would give me leftover scraps from her sewing projects and I would make my Barbie new dresses.
Now I have newer memories playing Barbie's with my daughter. And making clothes with her for her dolls :)
Did you play Barbies when you were a girl?




Have a fun Pink Saturday,

MY DAUGHTER AMY WHO IS 33 YEARS OLD HAS GOTTEN THE HOLIDAY BARBIE EVERY YEAR FROM HER GRANNY SINCE THE VERY FIRST ONE. THIS YEAR WILL BE EITHER HER 21 OR 22 HAPPY HOLIDAY BARBIE AND THE FIRST ONE IS THE ONLY ONE TO BE TAKEN OUT OF HER BOX...SHE IS IN RED. MY NIECE RECEIVED ONE THAT YEAR....THE VERY FIRST IN THE SERIES AND SHE CUT HER HAIR OFF UNTIL SHE WAS BALD.
MY DAUGHTER HAS OVER 350 BARBIES IN THEIR BOXES AND THEN HER VERY FIRST BARBIES IN HER LITTLE SUITCASE WITH ALL THEIR CLOTHES...THOSE WERE HER PLAY BARBIES.
THIS YEAR THE DRESS IS GORGEOUS.
I DON'T EVER REMEMBER A PINK DRESS....GREEN VELVET, SILVER, WHITE, RED,GOLD, THEY ARE ALL BOXED UP OR I WOULD LOOK THROUGH AND SEE.

Hello, Mary,
Isn't Barbie beautiful in her pretty pink gown? I played with Barbie for hours on end when I was a little girl in the 1950's and 1960's. My Barbie had short hair, and we called it a "bubble cut" back then. Happy Pink Saturday to you! Vicki

Sorry I'm a little late. Seems like when the sun is out I feel a desperate need to go outside and run errands or just life my face to the heavens and soak in the last rays before winter hits my neck of the woods.

It's always so much fun to share in the pink goodness of the blogs gathered together for Pink Saturday. A collection of some of the nicest women and prettiest blogs in cyberspace!

Wishing you a weekend filled with l♥ve and sunshine!

I love her! That dress is divine!

Sares said...

wouldn't you just love to have a REAL dress like that! I could wear it while I did the laundry or took a walk! My sister and I always played with Barbies when we were young. I liked to get them dresses and built them a house and after that I was done. I was never very good at the make believe part. It would be fun to collect the fancy/Holiday Barbies. She comes in some beautiful gowns. Happy Pink and have a beautiful Sunday!

CC said...

Leslie said...

Happy Pink Saturday a day late! I had two Barbies when I was growing up, a Midge with a bubblecut that was originally by sister's and a quick-curl Kelly. I sure wish I still had them!
Please stop by my blog-I'm doing a giveaway until Friday, 10/23. Hugs, Leslie

Ruth said...

My, Barbie looks very elegant these days! When I was small, I played with a Sindy doll; I think Barbie was only just becoming popular in the UK in the mid-1970s.
