The A-Frame Barbie Dream House (Circa 1978)

1978 Barbie Dream House -- The818.comFor Christmas this past year, Scott Mom brought out the pristine 1978 Barbie Dream House that had belonged to my sis-in-law Maegan. We were all overwhelmed that they’d decided to bestow this treasure on Delilah, but obviously Dee most of all.

Every detail. Every gasp of glee, every mid-century bit of styling, every. tiny. detail. And so I did. But what do you do with all of those details?Do you put them in a photo album? What’s the point?

I share a lot of things on the internet, and I can see where Story will come in super handy with that but more importantly, I take a lot of photos that I’m only really intending to share with family and close friends, and Story is a really beautiful way to do that. Check out the Story I created of Dee’s first visit with her vintage Barbie Dream House. Finally, I was able to compile them and then delete them from my phone. Every tiny detail included.
