#tbt Do you remember the 1960s? This Hair Fair Barbie is a 50th Anniversary set from 2017. I remember my mother wearing a wig and hair pieces. She even put a flip braid like this on me. Remember when?
“In the late 1960s, the hot trend was hair! From big hair to ever-changing hairstyles, even Barbie® doll embraced this mod fashion trend in 1967. Barbie™ Hair Fair doll offered a complete wig wardrobe that allowed Barbie® to change her look to complement her on-trend outfits. Like the original, this anniversary set also includes a flip braid, a “fall” hair piece, a “crownette” headband, and a brunette wig! Wearing a bright “flower power” dress, 50th Anniversary Barbie™ Hair Fair doll celebrates this iconic fashion era. Her look features chunky over-sized earrings, a cute asymmetrical bob hairstyle and rooted eyelashes.”
#twinningtuesday Are you embarrassed to be silly in public? I gotta admit that sometimes people stop to see what I’m doing. They seem more interested than judgemental.
It helps if you hum Billy Joel while you do the photos, 🎶 “You may be right - I may be crazy - But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for..”🎶
Do you have any good “Taking photos in public” stories?

What’s Your favorite wine? 🍷
Every time I post a quarantine Barbie - I get asked, “Where’s The Wine?” This #iwinealot doll is for you!
What’s your Barbie story? I’ve had a chance to share mine a lot recently since my Quarantine Barbies went viral. Last December, Yahoo #OBSESSED came to my house and talked to me about Barbie. ** Link in bio and stories. What’s your story? Was Barbie a part of your childhood?
#tbt Are you an Audrey Hepburn fan? I have collected a few of the dolls. The Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is from a Swap Meet. From estate sales - I purchased The Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s Pink Princess Fashion and the Barbie Doll as Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady — Plus Breakfast at Tiffany’s The Cat Mask Outfit. What’s your favorite movie she was in?...
New YouTube Unboxing Video / Link in Bio to see what else I got.
Do you like my new computer?
I am always looking for tiny items for my one-sixth-scale miniature world. The artist who made these minis - “makes small batches and provides limited access to her creations.” I’m always so impressed to see what she creates and am fortunate to have been able to get these limited edition items. Do you think it looks 👀 realistic?
What “older” Barbies are out there? I was looking for some “friends” for Grandma Barbie - so I used the Minerva McGonagall doll from Harry Potter and Erica Kane doll from All My Children.
The whole time I was channeling Beyoncé and singing my own version of her hit:
“All the senior ladies (All the senior ladies)
All the senior ladies (All the senior ladies)
All the senior ladies (All the senior ladies)
All the senior ladies
Now put your hands up”
Any ideas for some other “older” friends for Grandma....
#tbt Did you watch Beverly Hills, 90210? The teen drama ran for a decade - the 1990s. These character dolls were produced by Mattel in 1991. Last year, I found them at the swap meet and added them to my collection. Do these dolls bring back memories?
😜 What’s the craziest place you’ve found a mini? When I saw these cheese spreaders at the swap meet last January- I wondered 🤔 if the tiny baskets of vegetables 🍅 🍆 🥕 🥬 would work for my mini life. I finally got around to taking them apart. I think they’re perfect. What unusual place have you found minis?
#fridayfun Do you enjoy humor? Any ideas for a new parody Barbie?

Do you have any ReMent? I have a few that I purchased on eBay. They are very realistic miniatures. The older sets are quite collectible and pricey. In January- I found a ziplock bag full of ReMent at the Swap Meet and I have been sorting thru them. I can’t wait to photograph them and show you my new minis. #Kawaii #かわいい
According to Wikipedia: “RE-MENT Co., Ltd. #株式会社リーメントKabushikigaisha-Riiment), located in Chiyoda Tokyo, is a Japanese manufacturer of collectible plastic toys.

Do you have any tiny photo albums? When I first started my Dollstagram - I saw these miniature photo albums and knew I wanted them for my 1/6th scale world. I recently received a set (there are 3 in a set) from them #freeproduct and wanted to share them with you. @socialps...

Are you a fan of Time-lapse videos? There is something satisfying about watching a diorama completed in 60 seconds - even though it took months from idea - to collecting the pieces - to actually building and putting it together. Do you enjoy the short videos?
▶️Scroll thru to see @aletile tile my tiny bathroom.
•For the long version of how I built my bathroom diorama - check out the link in my bio....
Have you ever visited Palm Springs? It’s hot! 🌞 Grandma and Grandpa Barbie enjoy swimming in the refreshing pool and drinking Coca Cola. #barbiegetsreal
Do you like trying / learning new photo tricks? I watched a photographer lie down and turn his iPhone upside down - so the lens was close to the ground. By flipping his phone - it changed the perspective. Have you tried this?
Have you unplugged lately? We decided a change of scenery would be nice - so we headed away from suburbia and to the Sierra Nevada mountains. It was refreshing to have a break from real life. We enjoyed the lakes, the trees, and watching the wildlife. We didn’t watch the news and I mostly stayed off my phone. We are driving home and we feel refreshed. Do you ever unplug. #unplugged
Have you built a miniature bathroom? Head over to YouTube (link in bio and stories) and check out my new video. I thought since my Son-in-Law @aletile does tile work – it would be fun to create and tile a one sixth scale bathroom. He was a real trooper and did such a nice job! Thank you @aletile for putting up with your crazy mother-in-law!

Can you believe it’s the first day of Summer? Do you have any summer trips planned or is this a staycation kind of year?
We are planning a family fishing 🎣 trip to Mammoth! I, also, hope to go to New Mexico to visit our grandkids there. What’s your summer looking like?
Do you have a best friend? My BFF, Nancy, has the Amelia Earhart doll as her mini me. She goes along with most of my crazy ideas. 😜 Tag your BFF 👯♀️ who puts up with your shenanigans. “In the cookie of life, friends are the chocolate chips.” .
When was the last time you went to the beach? I only live ten minutes away and don’t go very often. I usually go with my daughter’s family. They live walking distance to the sand and go daily. Her kids love the water. I haven’t been in the ocean since Jaws came out in 1975. 🦈 How about you? Do you love the beach life - salt in the air and sand in your hair? Do you go in the 🌊 ocean? 🦈 Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum da-dum da-dum da-dum daaaaaaaa 🦈. LINK TO BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO IN STORIES .
Are there any Barbie babies in your collection? These four little ones were purchased at @walmart and I’ve enjoyed using them in my photos. I would have loved these as a kid.
