Barbie's 'used' Volkswagon....

I have been working so hard this week in my husband's office with his boiler business,Leo Paul and Associates , invoicing, picking up parts, delivering them to him, faxing, plus wrapping orders from my own business Pumpkin Hill Studios on Ebay  I have had literally no doll time. I have worked a little this week in the evenings on the Nativity - currently am working on one of the Wise Men's costume. Still have two more to do, plus possibly another shepherd and finding a good doll for the angel.
But today I could breath a bit, so I stopped by a large yard sale at the nearby Firestation in Hanover and found Barbie a used volkswagon. It is in a peach colored pink, but not too puke pepto-Bismol pink. I gave the man $2 and brought it home, and pivatol Barbie loves it- so its' her 'new' car.










 
I have missed being able to take pics and pay attention to Barbietown, this is the first time in quite a while I have been able to enjoy the dolls and start thinking of the holidays on how to decorate Barbietown for Christmas. I have wanted to do alot of different scenes- which call for MORE PROPS. lol....but I will try to restrain myself. Since Hurricane Sandy is due to hit tomorrow here in Va. and on the East Coast, I thought loading luggage for evacuation would be appropriate with the new car. After the yard sale I went to Walmart and the Dollar tree for supplies- water, matches, candles, flashlights, batteries- you know, the regular stuff.
Every time we have a threat of a natural disaster- I always wonder- what doll would I grab? This is hard to think about, since I have so many. And with the Barbie Collector sale ending on 10/29, I might possibly have more!
Here is some more pics of Barbietown...just because.

It's perfect for Barbietown! The color is even perfect. It just looks like it belongs there.

LOL! Thank you Vanessa! I gave it a good scrubbing when I got home, but it works right in there.

I think we need a good pickup trip for the guys. Might give me a good excuse to browse on Ebay.
