Vintage Love Saturday - Dolls
Vintage Love Saturday
My original Barbie - American Girl
My original Barbie is an American Girl - an early 1966 American Girl Barbie.
The butt markings on the American Girl Barbies differ and because mine has both raised and indented markings she is an early 1966.
That kind of ages me, too, doesn't it? :)
I am planning to have her model some of the new fashions I will be adding to my ennadoolf shop on Etsy so watch for her debut there hopefully in the new year.
When I was younger I loved paper dolls too.
Lennon Sisters - purchased on ebay
I had a set of Lennon Sisters. Sadly we lost them during a move.
I did find a well-loved set on ebay! I bought them. LOL
Even though one of the sisters was missing, I loved the fact that they had fold marks at their ankles because I remember how fragile the ankles of paper dolls could be! All of them had tape to reinforce them.
Now I'll be adding them to my vintage shop on Etsy one day as I enjoyed the chase of recapturing my youth and am now ready for them to go to a new home.
