I received an early Christmas gift already this year~~~it was an autograph from YOU that I received at Women's bible study!!! :) THANK YOU!!! It made me giggle--and I loved it! I told the gals that I was just certain our paths would cross someday soon as we have many mutual friends! I love your writings Linda~~~you are such a gifted person.

Nice Thursday post! I just posted my Thursday, with a few add-ons, come on by and visit!

Love the list. My Malibu Barbie was on eof my favorites too. I always wanted an Easy Bake Oven - Mom opted to buy me the little pans and mixes and put them in the real oven though. You can see where I get my practical side from.....

I just subscribed to your post - that should make up for the one who unsubscribed! Poor person, they don't know what they are missing!

This was a fun list! Brings back lots of memories.

I can't get over how much your youngest looks like you did in that 1974 picture. I had to look twice.

I had several of those, but I am coveting that piano!! Oh that would have been marvelous.

I'm too young to have had a Crissy doll as a child BUT given that my name IS Crissy my uncle gave me one that he found still in the box at an estate auction for my 18th birthday. I've had her for 10 yrs. now.
