See those parenthesis around the title? Those are hugs, because I really, really like this little thing:
Yesterday I went to the yard sale of some acquaintances of mine. They had advertised the yard sale on their Facebook page, and when they mentioned that they were selling their daughter’s 80’s Barbie stuff, I knew I needed to drop by. I am sooo glad I did. I walked away about $25 poorer, but I snagged some really awesome Barbie stuff for my daughter: a picnic set, a doctor’s office, a “Skipper” doll, a jeep, some clothes, shoes, and little odds-and-ends galore. I realized that back in the 80’s Mattel used to make so many tiny accessories that are so much fun: tiny pop bottles, cups, plates, mirrors, etc. Among the awesomeness I collected yesterday, there was a wind-up mixer and this incredibly cool wind-up sewing machine. When you wind it up, the needle actually moves up and down, the handwheel turns, and it sounds a lot like a sewing machine. I love it!
Well, if you’ll excuse me now, I’m off to play Barbies!
