Something to Do While It’s Quiet

I just wanted to warn you that it’s going to be a little quiet here for the next month or so.  I’m taking a little break from updating this ...

Goodwill Barbie

I’ve been checking out the articles on this website, a lot about fixing old dolls and making clothes for them.  That’s where I got the idea for the sock clothes I made before (See Sock Couture).  I may have been influenced quite a bit by it all.  The other day, I went to a different Goodwill location in search of something I never did find. 

I came across this:

photos 601

She was sitting on a shelf looking all sad and pathetic.  No clothes, messed up hair, I took pity on her.  She has the most interesting face for a Barbie doll, plus she was only 99 cents.  Who could resist?  I’m going to clean her up a bit and maybe make some clothes for, that is as soon as I finish my current list.  I think I’m going to name her “Amie” too, how’s that for a name?  It was the first one that popped into my head, that’s usually how I come up with names for everything.  Sometimes I come up with some unusual names that way.  I named a stray cat Max once, okay except it was a she.  Anyway, look forward to seeing “Amie” all dressed up.  Maybe in future she’ll be joined by a few more Goodwill friends.


  1. I look forward to seeing her all flashed up in a new outfit :-)
    That's a cool website you've linked too

  2. Glad to hear it. I already have a few ideas on clothing styles for her.
