Gone But Not Forgotten

This weekend whilst licking my wounds from a lost eBay bidding war, I stumbled across the above.
For giddy purposes let's just refer to it as PURE GOLD.
In a frenzy of epic proportions I got swept out to sea calling the Chef (like he could care?)
and my mom who helped me curate a rather sizable Barbie collection back in the 70's. 

And then I forgot to swoop back over and bid.
Two epic losses in one weekend.
No wonder I've come down with the flu.

Dear 70's Disco Ken with Fringe: someday we will find one another.
Until then, stay strong.

Tee hee I was so curious what your post was about when I saw Ken laying on berber carpet wearing combat boots ; )

Please tell me that you don't have a Barbie without a Ken. #heartbroken
P.S. I used to set my Barbies on fire.

PURE GOLD indeed! That fringe! Those shorts! Oh 1970s...

Dancing Branflake said...

Feel better, my friend. Is that fringe on his shirt?! What? Yeah, you soooo need to have it.

If I didn't admit that seeing Ken laying there, just waiting to leap up, change outfits and take Barbie to the drive-in, didn't make my stomach flip in excitement..I'd be lying.

Yara Simón said...

I hate bidding. I was after this one phone recently and kept losing. Good luck with your future searches. =]

Polly said...

I hope that you find Ken again.

RosaLovesDC said...

Carrie, how could you let this treasure slip through your hands????? OMG this is indeed GOLD!

Amber said...

I am sure you and Ken will end up together in the end.
