A Visit From Silken Flame Barbie

Mrs. Smith went to California a few weeks ago to become a grandmother (at the ripe old age of 40) but it hasn't happened yet so she came back, bringing with her a Silken Flame Barbie that I think she said belongs to her mother.

I cut off her hat, but this shows her outfit. I had one of these bubble haircut Barbies back in the early 60s. She was one of the first bendable leg Barbies. I made her a Jackie Kennedy pillbox hat out of cardboard covered with green felt.

Silken Flame Barbie accepts an invitation to have a drink.
Things start off pleasantly
Silken Flame makes a play for Ken
Sabra becomes a little tipsy

Silken Flame decides maybe G.I. Joe is more to her liking
When the empty pineapple drink rolls under the table, order is restored


  1. Wow, she's a very stylish Barbie!!! Loved the story, I see they are all more up to date in their behaviour though, I think the 18960s Barbies would have been more ladylike LOL!!! What do you think?

  2. I think you are absolutely right! Sabra and Silken Flame have been very badly influenced by the younger generation. They should be setting a good example but instead they were the first ones to get--I was going to say drunk but I'll stick to tipsy, because it sounds a little nicer.
