Barbie Mondays

Hello Dear Ones! Just wanted you to know if you came by last week and commented, I may not have gotten back to you. But I have a good reason...we hopped a train (Amtrak) and I got to sleep for the first time on the train, then we hopped off the train in New Orleans and stayed the night at the Royal Hotel on Royal Street in the French Quarter, then we hopped back on the train and got off in Houston, took a little ride to Galveston, spent two nights in The Little House (our little condo) then we packed a few more little things and poked them into Mr. Precious' old Mercedes and then we were going to head back to New York. He wanted his old car so much. But the day before we left Galveston there was a funny sound coming from the car. Long story short - the water pump broke and caused a belt to break - bye bye $700! So God protected us from this happening on the road and so far so good. I haven't had any time to post but we're in Winchester, Kentucky, tonight and we have wifi so I thought I would bring you another Barbie Monday. What a life! :)

Okie dokie...
 Like I said earlier, when I made these Barbie clothes all of my fabric had been packed so I went and bought some more so you've seen many outfits made from the same fabric and this is one of them ~ a little country cowgirl looking outfit.
I do just love this sweet little red and white fabric and it made a cute little 3/4 length sleeved shirt.
To finish off her little outfit, Barbie had to have a blue jean skirt. I added the red and white trim around the hem of her skirt! Now if she only had some boots she could go boot scoottin'! :)

Now, same Barbie and same fabric! But here she is all dressed up in this darling little dress. I love this pattern and made quite a few dresses from it.
 It has a little boat neck and is sleeveless. You can tell by her face she feels special dressed in it.
 Barbie is getting tired and has stopped modeling for me and has sat down! I asked her if she would just turn once more so I could snap her picture?
Barbie shouts, "Let me outta here!" She must be from New York and she does need some shoes! :) Oh well, life goes on!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)
I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly "girl I like your face"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

Desmond takes a trolley to the jewellers stores
Buys a twenty carat golden ring (Golden ring?)
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing (Sing)

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on, yeah (No)

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ah ha ha ha ha ha)

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand (Arm! Leg!)
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

Yes, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on (Ha ha ha)
Hey, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)

Yeah, happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand (Foot!)
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

And if you want some fun
Take ob-la-di ob-la-da
