"Summer Sand" Barbie

Here's a look at my new favorite doll,. 1967 Twist'n'Turn Barbie, trade-in program doll, in her original vintage swim suit and fish-net cover-up, with ash brown hair. So pretty!

If I could send a gift back through time to my ten-year-old self, it would be this doll. Plus $100 to buy up a whole bunch more dolls in boxes to never play with but to save for my future self.  That seems fair.

Update: 6/28/2015.  It turns out this girl's hair is actually "Go Go Co Co," a pretty light brown. I found a doll with the "Summer Sand" hair color at the same booth that I first found this one!

She's gorgeous, and in such great condition! The time traveling would be awesome, I would do the same thing :-D

Thank you, Night Owl! I can't wait to see how your Barbie-scale dollhouse comes along--such an exciting project!

Thanks! I'm afraid it's going to be a slow project, but I'm looking forward to it :-)
