Show & Tell Friday - Coca Cola Barbie Bedroom

Today is Show and Tell Friday over at Kelli's House, There's No Place Like Home. I haven't participated in awhile, so today I thought I would join in the fun.

For Show and Tell Friday I thought I would show pictures of one of my guest bedrooms at my vacation home on the Colorado River in Parker, Arizona. Each room has a theme and this room is decorated in Coca Cola memorabilia and Coca Cola Barbies.

The whole room is done in red and white

Throughout the room I have every Coca Cola Barbie and Ken that has been made. Each one is still in their original box and has never been openedIn the 70s Coca Cola came out with their own doll and clothing line, and I have almost every one of themI also have several vintage Coca Cola Trays and signs hanging on the walls tooI took an old Coca Cola crate and hung it on the wall and put in each slot Matchbox Coca Cola collector carsWe refer to this room as if it was on the corner of Coca Cola Court and Barbie Doll Blvd.

It must be so much fun to own a vacation home and decorate in themes.

What wonderful treasures you have. I wouldn't mind sleeping in that room. I love the red and white comforter. The whole room is really pretty.

Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my Aunt. She was cured at the Mayo Clinic but don't know what the cure was.

Anne! I love it! Did you know I have an old Coca Cola ice chest. It still works and is wayyy better then any cooler on the market today. It keeps things sooooo cold!

I need your expert advice. I got two gardenia plants/bushes as a bday present and I'm not sure "where" to plant. I thought I'd put them by my bedroom window, but I read an article that said not to plant by a concrete wall or path. I thought maybe you could help me out :0). Thanks either way!
