Snow Date Night!

Chicago had its first real snow of the season last weekend. Ryan and Richelle with Jeffrey and Carly are meeting for a Winter Date night. An impromptu snowball fight in the backyard of the HFIM house begins.

  4. My Dad used to make all my Barbie Clothes and honestly I didn't appreciate the work and details that went into his Design of them all. The last of them I Sold several Years ago at the Antique Mall and they fetched a good price for someone who was far more appreciative of them and that made me Happy, I knew Dad would have been Happy that someone who will enjoy them is giving them a new Life and they're no longer just stored away unseen. A lot of Ladies that do what you do buy from our Showroom the Barbies and Clothing, the Dollhouse Furniture and Accessories, I thought Kids would, but it's more Adults that appreciate so much of it and will properly Care for it.

    1. I know what you mean about adults shopping---seriously I didn't realize that collectors span all ages, the first 'Barbie Girls' are now in or approaching their 70's. Considering I did antiques and crafts, tons of shabby chic furniture---that I am no longer able to do---the 1/6 scale doll world allows me to do the same things I did all my life, only on a small scale. Plus the 'Thrill of the HUNT', lol. Thanks for visiting,Dawn, and glad your heirlooms found appreciative home. I'm actually investing for my grand's college fund, all doll proceeds go in an account for her schooling! A PLUS!So I have nine years to turn this mess around, LOL.
