End of the Year Fun

I picked up a vintage Barbie the other day and of course, checked the date on her derriere. 1966 was the golden year, and after reading some online info, discovered that millions of Barbies have "1966" printed on their backsides, but that only refers to the body mold. But, mine does have "Japan" printed as well, so she might have a little more than average value. She's got blonde hair which needs a complete re-do, and her skin is a little grubby, but otherwise she's in great shape. While I was looking for info, I found the "Vintage Barbies" Flickr group photo pool. Enjoy the slideshow !

Sending Photos to Flickr Finally !

Photo0030, originally uploaded by ambrosianbeads.

OK, this looks like a mess and it is, it's a test shot of my kitty amongst some craft show junk. It's ugly, but I'm excited because my attempt to install Shozu on my camera phone ACTUALLY WORKED !!!! I tried it over a year ago, and got stalled out at downloading it onto my cheapo phone. Tried again and "voila" I'm in business ! Hurray
I've been dying to get this working because I want to upload photos of what I call "ugly duds" (hilariously ugly clothing I find while I'm thrifting). At one point, I wanted to devote a whole website to this, sort of like that ugly bridesmaid dress website (I hope it's still out there, such a hoot). Stay tuned for lots of "ugly duds" now !
