Which Barbie Doll Are You?

Hello and welcome to my blog. I have always been fascinated with the history of the Barbie Doll and wanted to share my interest in Barbie’s world. The interest in Barbie is that she could be anything and everything you envisioned. From everyday lives, careers, fashion, relationships, family, and travel the possibilities are endless. With interpretation and imagination what qualities in Barbie would you want to bring to life?

Welcome to The World of Barbie 1950 & 1960 Era


A blog for those who loved Barbie growing up and whose fascination remains today! Let’s get right to the reason for this blog and more to follow. I will be posting the extraordinary world of Barbie and highlight her growth in everyday life, careers, and fashion. Sure, she has been surrounded by controversy, whether for her physical proportions influencing a false sense of body image, her narrow view of beauty, or how some of Barbie’s professions portray women as unintelligent. While I don’t think Barbie’s looks or fashion choices are trivial issues, I do see Barbie as iconic in fashion, career, and beauty. My Barbie blogs are simply meant to give you a feeling of familiarity and entertainment. Hope you enjoy them.

Begin a New Tradition

The holidays are the most tradition-rich time of the year. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. There is just something magical about pine trees, holiday music, twinkly lights, and dreaming of a white Christmas! Tradition is home and how we create that cozy feeling. And a cozy Christmas has just as much to do more with tradition and family as it does with the décor we choose.

Over the years I have gathered quite a collection of holiday treasures. I began my own yearly tradition of scouting out that one special piece that brings back family memories. So, I am excited to share with you some of my favorite holiday treasures. Each year, I will be adding to my collection and will share with you the special item and why it was the ‘one’!

So, for all of you who love the holidays, please share your favorite item and why it is meaningful to you.






Let the search begin for my 2018 addition! See you next Christmas.
