Hi Marie,
Love the names!!
My Grandmas name is Mildred. I can remember some people would call her Millie.
Love all your prim creations. Yes, you sure have been a busy bee lately. Your making me feel quite guilty. I havent done anything constructive lately.

Love your new goodies!
It have been years since my Hubby surprised me with anything. :) So you are one lucky gal. :)

I bet you cant wait for your shopping trip with the Bag Ladies!!
Your outing always sound like so much fun.

Enjoy your weekend and try not to work too hard.

Wonderful items you have created. Love the little witches. And the dollie's names. Love Maude. That was hubbys Grandmother's name, and if you have read older post, my favorite sister in law was named after her and her name is Maudie. Sure looks like you "Bag" gals could do some serious shoping, and might I say,,, lot of mischief?? Sounds like a great trip. Hug your hubby tight, that was a great gift.

Wow Marie, you have been busy as a bee, the old bag trip looks like so much fun, I laugh just looking at you silly girls.
I love all of your dolls and pumpkins, I am just hoping your pick my name. He He
And my flowers just look sick compared to yours. You definately have a green thumb, I believe two of them. So sweet of your hubby to surprise you with a gift. And love your gum display.
Hugs, Lecia

Love seeing what makes YOUR heart skip a beat Marie - and I'm so jealous I can't go with you on your shopping trip. That looks like my kind of fun! You pumpkins and witchie-poos are so, so, cute.....Wish I could adopt every one of them! And love your DH's wonderful gift (what'd he do wrong to try to sweeten you up with that kinda sugar?? ;o)). Can't wait to see where Millie and Maude are headed...I know wherever it is, they'll be welcomed with wide-open arms....Have a great week! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
