Photo and Sculpture by Carrie M. Becker
I'd be surprised if my Barbie turned from fashion addict to hoarder — my brunette twist-and-turn Barbie was always fastidious, even if we did store all of her tiny shoes in an old cotton sack that once held chewing-gum.

Maybe your Barbie was more of a slob?
On the other hand, I had my doubts about Midge. In my opinion, this is her house.
Looking at these photographs is adding more fuel to my fire to declutter our apartment with a vengeance as soon as the tree comes down and the decorations are packed away this weekend. (As if I needed any more inspiration after last month's three-dumpster cleanup project.) I've already started tossing some of the obvious candidates.
