How is Your Summer Going?

My summer is a mixed bag. Between surgery trips, things breaking down and illness, its been off. However, there has been some fun in the bargain!

We are really enjoying the pool this summer. It has been such a blessing, especially the week we had no AC! My grandsons are little fishies and, like me, would spend hours in the pool if allowed!

We celebrated my Beloved’s birthday with friends at our home.

Then his brother had us over to celebrate again at their home! What a surprise they had for us. We both got gifts! Here is a large part of mine:

Barbies from the late 70s early 80s. Any clues as to who they are?

There are a few Skipper pieces though sil says she does not remember ever having had a Skipper… I have one here some place I wonder if these will fit her…

My favorite Barbie shoe is the basic black boot. I have always had a thing about black boots.

So when I do the fashion show post, what should go first?
I have too much to do today to do that part.
Tell me how your summer is going!
Hugs y’all

  1. Love , love , love it all!!!
    My absolute favorite though is the white nightgown penoir set. Pretty sure that is misspelled lol!
    So I vote to see the very first Barbie on the left in the first picture in this set!
    I don’t think there are many Skippers around. Don’t think I’ve seen one at all lately , though I’d love to have an original with the long straight hair , bangs and freckles.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh Helen, I would Love an original Skipper! I have one that has lots of curly hair… Doesn’t look much like a Skipper if you ask me!

  3. Hi Mel! I love ALL OF THESE! I have a few of those outfits. 🙂 I think my favorite ones though are the ski outfit and the “I’m a Toys R Us Kid!” long sleeve. I’m going to to have to find one for my dolls. I am a child of the 80’s when Toys R Us was THE place to be! Was so sad when they shut down.

    My kiddos are fish as well. We have been spending many a summer days at the lake. But the weather is turning now and sad to see summer come to an end.

    Your dolls are beautiful. The middle doll is a PJ. Gotta love that Steffie head mold!
