Do you think Barbie is pretty?

I am going to do a few posts on ‘being pretty’

so leave a pretty comment, pretty please!


I love to find a Golden Book that I don’t have!

And I could relate to this one...


And that was a rhetorical question...

of COURSE Barbie is pretty?

And I smell pretty with these wonderful soaps from

my girlfriend Tracy, the Sunburnt Cow Hand made shop !


The box arrived on a day when I was more BUSY

than PRETTY and I took a luxurious bath

with Lavender Vanilla Dreams soap!

She sent me several bars and she tucked this little brooch

in the box for me, too!....THANK YOU, Tracy!


I was so surprised to find out that she made this

wonderful scent...perfect for me! 

So I changed things up around my tub AGAIN!


Do you move things around a lot? I sure do!!!

I love your decorative pieces along with the soaps. They both go hand in hand.

Tina said...

That's a Little Golden Book I haven't seen before. But yea, I think Barbie is pretty. Too pretty.
Some of Barbie's friends on the other hand..well...
How exciting to get a package like that! I bet the soaps smells so good and the broach is beautiful!
I move things around in my house all the time...hubby used to think I went shopping every time I rearranged the house! :-)

I love the name "sunburnt cow"......too, too adorable!

Vee said...

Oh phew! I was hoping that I wouldn't have to commit to that question...

Yes, I move things around a lot. Daily. It's fun.

Enjoy your special soaps...

Lovely soap and soap dish. Looks pretty around your garden tub. Barbie is pretty and that looks like a cute book. Hope you have a pretty day.

Posting about pretty -- well, i just think that's pretty cool! I'm not a Barbie fan, sad to say (I also couldn't stand Shirley Temple...) but I'm all about pretty and girly! and lavender is my favorite scent.

I love lavender scents....and that broach is very pretty.

Pat Winter said...

No, Barbie isn't pretty, I don't like "plastic" people,LOL. Just kidding, of course she is...both plastic and pretty.
Lavender/Vanilla is my favorite scent in the bath. Lucky girl. Enjoy your sweet smelling gift.

Moving things around ~ who me? Ha Ha, it's my favorite pastime, I think.
What a pretty gift you received. I imagine it smells delightful. I used to buy a fabric softener with that scent and LOVED it. I think they stopped making it though. Bummer.

Shelley said...

A very pretty post indeed :)
Have a blessed weekend...

koralee said...

I am sure with you my friend...I am ALWAYS moving things all your pretties today. xooxo hugs

Vintage Gal said...

How funny ~ I move things around constantly and Mr. Vintage always says "one day I will trip over something" Barbie ~ funny story. I once said "I wish Barbie would get a job" then they came out with Doctor Barbie, Vet Barbie, Nurse Barbie. I guess the joke was on me ;-)

Prairie Patch said...

Oh, you have the soap displayed so prettily! I love your clam soap dish; the color goes so nicely with the soap.

I'm so happy that you like the scent! I might start making soaps again because you've been so appreciative and sweet. :) Glad you like the broach, too.

Tracy (of Sunburnt Cow and other blogs - lol)


Love moving things around and love handmade soaps. Love the old books on your bookshelf too!

I have that Barbie book here at my house. Got it for my granddaughter when she was little...she loved all the books and movies about Barbie.
I love how you displayed the handmade soap...very pretty!!

Well... personally, I prefer vintage dolls, but there was a time in my daughters life when these were all over my house! Now theyre packed up and waiting for my granddaughters to play with them.
Your friend has style! Lavender and vanilla hmmmm :)
