Happy Easter


I was out shopping for goodies to fill Easter baskets today and I found a few goodies for myself. I was at Walmart looking at all the toys and I saw this Barbie case. It is a fiftieth anniversary case. I had one similar to it when I was a child......so of coarse I had to have it. I will put my Peek-a-boo Barbies in it. I'm sure they will love it.  The pink foil wrapped bunny and the fairy bunny were so cute.........   Then I went to Borders to check and see if they had "Marie".....and they did....I was so excited. I have not even opened it yet. I am going to wait until later when I can sit and relax and  thoroughly enjoy it.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter.

Happy PS,

Way cool Barbie case. I haven't had the pleasure of reading Mare, but maybe I'll head to Borders and pick one up.

Have a happy day

My little sister had that case! I remember her carrying it around, stuffed to overflowing with little dresses.

Is it really 50 years old?

How can I remember it, as I'm only 35 myself?! ;-)

Have a lovely holiday weekend!

(I have not seen that faery chocolate bunny - I may have to search that out today!)

Hi Sue, and Happy Easter! I am going to Wal-Mart...love the Barbie Case...gotta have it. I have already poured over the "marie" magazine for hours, and will probably do so even more. It is just exquisite. I hope you enjoy every page. Hugs, Kathleen

Sue, I always do the same darned thing at Wal-mart...I go in to buy one thing, and end up finding some "treats" of my own! You're going to LOVE your Marie! It's a wonderful issue! Happy Easter to you! Enjoy the peace of the season.

Barbie case is lovely. I have seen it at Walmart and was tempted myself to grab one. As a young girl, I was never that into Barbie. Although I did have a Barbie and Ken and her Camper with the pop down tent. However, I was always a Dawn Doll girl. Had lots of those and a beautiful rectagular shaped, colorfully illustrated, vinyl carrying case to store them in.

My gosh, no peeps? I found green, blue, purple, yellow, pink, orange and brown. Next year if you can't find any, let me know and I'll send some to you. Our stores were loaded with the little stinkers.

Happy Easter to you too! I love the image of the vintage greeting card. I have ordered my copy of Marie but it takes about 2~3 weeks to arrive in the post from the US to England and I am getting impatient!

Lol, I think we had a similar Barbie case...unfortunately I hated playing Barbies when I was little, and it was my best friend's FAVORITE thing to do. :) I always preferred Baby Dolls!

Your site is always so beautiful to browse, and never fails to bring a smile!

Good luck with the garden! Fresh, sun warmed tomatos are heaven on earth!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter. I have not heard of Marie. Have to look for it.

My daughter had that same Barbie case! What fun to find it again! She also had one of the first Barbie's and when stores offered a brand new Barbie for turning in the old one, she took advantage. She sure wishes we'd known better and kept the original. But both my daughters enjoyed all their Barbie treasures through the years! Great fun!

I just spent a huge amount of time looking at all the Barbie stuff at Walmart!!! What a treat it all was. We were buying one of the grand daughters a Barbie Blackberry. She is on her 5th Barbie phone, she keeps dropping them in the poddy. I told her ladies don't use the phone in the washroom. she informed me it was just a toy!!!

Sue,

I saw the new Marie in Barnes and Noble but decided to wait to make the purchase.(They had a lot of them)

I never had the Barbie case, but am glad you found one for yourself.
