Bookkeeper

Nancy Drew has been feeling a little intimidated ever since I brought this perky pink Barbie book home. Miss Drew thought that she was the only gumshoe in town, but Barbie Roberts had news for her. If Barbie lingers in Rivers Heights much longer though, Nancy has threatened to steal her boyfriend. We may have a super sleuth cat fight on our hands ladies and gentlemen. If so, my money is definitely on Barbie. Never underestimate the power of pink. Which reminds me, check out the list of Pink Saturday participants over at the blog of our fabulous hostess Beverly.You'll be glad you did!
Now before you leave, you have to peek inside the book at some of the great illustrations that mark each chapter. Love the pointy toed shoes and the ponytail!

Love that secretary desk with all the cubbyholes and the shoes AGAIN!

Okay, it's difficult to pick a favorite here. Love the sweater tied at the neck and the ice cream sodas, but most of all I LOVE that Ken had worn a hat. Oh and by the dreamy way in which he is gazing into Barbie's eyes, I don't think Nancy stands a chance.

Oh what a hoot! I read all of the Nancy Drew, Bobbsey Twins, Betsy, Tracy and Tib or whatever it was, Tacy? And the "Jo" books, Little Women. Big reader when I was young.

Good morning, I'm stopping by to say hello, and Happy Pink Saturday. It's been stormy and rainy here in Southwest Florida. I hope your day is full of sunny skies, warm temps and plenty of Pink!

One day of the week I can count on for self-indulgence, Beverly's Pink Saturday. My l♥ve for the color is fed over and over and over by the generosity of everyone who participates. This week is no exception.

Thank you for sharing such great eye-candy. It was an absolute pleasure to visit your blog. Hoping this weekend finds you surrounded by l♥ve and happiness.
