A good friend of mine gave Bronwynn her childhood collection of Barbies, complete with an extensive (largely handmade) 1970s wardrobe. Say what you want about girls playing with Barbies. But I think this is pretty excellent.


  1. My daughter played with my Barbie box, which was also loaded with hand me downs from my four older sisters. We had dolls and clothes ranging from the very beginning through the 1970's. Now HER bits of Barbie lore are in the box...I am not a big Barbie lover, but the funky clothes and handmade dresses from our grandmother make more of a connection...

  2. Yes. Exactly! I don't love Barbies, but I LOVE the back story of this collection and how each piece was lovingly handmade.
