Barbie's Pink Dress and Genuine Generosity

When I posted my Barbie clothes recently (see it here), Jill from A Little Bit of Everything commented she thought she had the same pink dress for her Barbie. So we decided to post them and make a comparison. Mine was crocheted by my mom. I always liked the way it fit the dolls so well.

Pop over to Jill's and take a look.  Sure is a small world!

And speaking of Jill and the rest of my post title: genuine generosity, she posted some thrift finds recently (see the post here) and offered some of the playing cards to me as she knows I collect cards and also use them in paper crafting. What a pal! She wouldn't even let me pay for postage. That sort of thoughtfulness is hard to find nowadays.

Aren't they fun?

She also sent the cutest, funkiest owl note card.
 Thank you, Jill!

Have a nice day, everyone!


  1. Ohh, you had a mini - mine is more conservative!! Just posted!!

    And, you're very welcome for the cards - happy to share!!!

  2. How cute is that! I wish I had known it was Barbie Wednesday....I came to the party with black cats! heehee! And Jill is so sweet to share her goodies! She's always surprising someone with pressies! Let's sit on the floor and play dollies now! Sweet hugs!

  3. My mom used to crochet little dresses for my doll, too :)

  5. I think this pink dress is amazing on your Barbie- Loved seeing a pink dress on Jill's doll too.
    Blogging makes the world smaller everyday, it seems! You can jump online and read a blog-- and connect in a small way, or in a big way.
    Loved seeing all the clothes. The cards were a nice touch too.

  6. What an amazing coincidence, the dresses look like they were crocheted with the same yarn almost! What a generous blogging friend Jill is, the playing cards are wonderful.

  7. I came from Jill's page to look at your Barbie dress, but stayed for the! I love your header and history is one of my favorite things. =D
