My most favorite and touching gift of my life was when I was a little girl around 7 or 8 and I loved Barbies. I would play for hours with my hand me down Barbies and clothes, dressing them and setting up their home. I am the youngest of five children and at that time, my parents were struggling to make ends meet with a working father and a stay at home Mom. My mother would make things at home and my sister and I would go door to door selling her book marks, stuff animals, etc. that she would sew or crochet by hand to help out with little things we needed. (That was back in the 60's when you could send your children out door to door). Anyway, it was before Christmas and things were really tight. I wanted some new Barbie clothes and a Barbie carrying case from Santa, but my parents couldn't afford all these things. So for weeks my mother sewed by hand the most fabulous outfits imanigable. Feathered bathrobs, fun party dresses, leather boots, purses, etc. all from fabric she had saved. She even repurposed a small leather mini suitcase she got from a neighbor into a fabulous Barbie apartment with images she cut from magazines for furnishings she glued to the inside of the case. Wire was fashioned into tiny hangers and cardboard was made into pull out drawers to house the handmade clothes. I would stand at her sewing machine, my tiny hands gripping the table in awe of her creations. When I asked who she was making the clothes and house for, she told me my cousin. So when Christmas morning came and I opened the Barbie case/house containing fabulous new clothes fashioned all just for me, I was overjoyed. To this day, no gift can compare to that wonderful gift my Mother gave me years ago.
