Pink Saturday's PINK Plantation Belle

It's Saturday today and that means it's a day to post PINK along with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound and all the other pink ladies!
This is my very lovely #1 Brunette Barbie. She was made in 1959 and she is the first style Barbie ever made! I have dressed her in the PINK outfit called Plantation Belle.
Look how beautiful her face is and I just love that PINK Straw Hat and her PINK pearl necklace!
Here is her matching PINK Straw Purse! Even Barbie back in 1959 liked PINK too!

Happy Pink Saturday!


Love this Barbie! So elegant!
I have one that it's a princess and wears a crown...
Never had one as a girl...they were very expensive.

Oh...right up my alley. Just seeing these old Barbie dolls brings back memories of playing for hours with my Barbie dolls. I never owned any outfit quite that exquisite...but wish I had! The detailing is unbelievable. Great post!

OMG!! That is a face from the past!! My sister had that very Barbie, too. I recall she came in a striped swim suit. The plantation attire is wonderful, however, and I love her straw bag!! Happy Pink Saturday!! L, Dana

I never had a Barbie Doll :( but my Daughter Nellie had one when she was 5 and she could never get her pants on and was bugging me all the time to help her..Thank Goodness for the CP kid..much easier to dress but we still have her Barbie packed away and all her CPK dolls too.
Check out my blog when you get a chance..I just finished creating my first web site and have some specials on it and will be having a give away in my blog soon in honor of my new web site

Oh you have a REAL collector's item there! My daughter is still ticked at me for giving her Barbies to her cousin. She had one of the originals too.

I love your Barbie doll! I remember playing with my 1959 blonde hair Barbie. I cut, shampooed and styled her hair and made doll houses and clothes for her! Just a couple of weeks ago, I got her out again, found a lady in CA who restores Barbies and sent her on a little spa vacation (restoration). Can't wait to get her back. Good memories. I love your Barbie's Planataion dress. Do you have a source for vintage clothing? I don't have any original clothes for my Barbie. Thanks, Kathi (Atlanta)
