Francie/Barbie

When I was a little girl I would play with my mother and aunt’s vintage Barbies.  I melted the hair on a swirl once…what a terrible thing to admit, isn’t it?

I try to only buy the dolls that really speak to me, so I do not have many Francie or Barbie.  Francie and her fashions were the first vintage dolls that I really got “into” in 1999-2000 but she is so very pricey (especially those perfect outfits) that I quickly concentrated on collecting other things.

I have 2 American Girl Barbies…I think one has a mismatched arm, but it’s hard to know.

I especially adore the 1965-66 girls with those faded buttercream lips and super soft hairs <3

1961 White Ginger Bubblecut I got in a junk lot…experimenting on green ear removal with her, but I don’t want to mess up her perfect hair and face.

I learned to sew on Barbie patterns when I was a pre-teen.

This is what I still have.

I just got 2 “Made to Move” Barbies and really really like them (no photos yet).  GREAT body design (though ugh to the consta smiles that Mattel seems to adore on the Barbie line).
