I just read the NY Times Magazine article on this gal Margaux Lange and her Barbie remembered funky Barbie jewelry. Like Margaux, I too admit to playing with Barbies through my junior high school years, until my sister (who is just a year younger) yelled down the hall at our school, “…oh yeah, well Noelle still plays with Barbies!” Slightly embarrassed, but not completely deterred – I think I still played with them in secret- like, in the bottom of the closet for a few more years.
I had the hugest Barbie doll house made by my Dad for Christmas one year- decorating it was my favorite pastime… ahhh, the days before the Nintendo DS….. I’ve got a picture of that Christmas morning somewhere… I wish I still had the doll house but my parents moved too many times and it was sold at a yard sale along the way.
So, when I saw Margaux Lange’s Barbie remembered jewelry I fell in love. You know- I love the goods that are crafty, clever and a little bit silly.
