Hello: Just wanted to share my Barbie "Cottage Industry", inspired by my wife who like you was born the same year as Barbie and still looks like her too. Lucky me!! The diormams feature a lot of differnet ideas for who likes what. Many times I use a "used Barbie" as a mannequin by painting her white to give more drama to the clothing. They are made of wood and size about 15 x14 and are lighted, ususally over the "picture" thank you for letting me share. Your site has been invalualbe to me for my research and discovery.
Best wishes, Ben Jones
Thank you so much Ben! Your creations are lovely - what a great idea!
