Look what I got...

I have a great letter carrier named Pam...she brings me wonderful things like bills and junk mail with a smile everyday...today she knocked on the door and handed me this!! Oh yea!! I having been waiting for this...I have always wanted one of these...well...maybe not this exact model...I really want a vintage one that costs an arm and a leg more than I have...but this one was up for bid on ebay...so...
I bid on her and I won! I admit she was pretty cheap...but easy...and a little wonky...but then I'm not perfect so why should she be...
I tried a bit of bling...she told me she likes bling...I have no bling...I wear shorts and T shirts and flip flops...but she insisted...this is the best I could do on such short notice...I mean I couldn't show you her naked could I??? We talked it over and I told her I would work out the details of her life here...she insists on some better scarves and jewelry...and a room of her own...we'll see I said...I may be able to come up with something a bit more dramatic...until then...we have to think of a name...nothing plain she said...OK...OK...but you're going to have to work for this...
Thanks for the package , Pam...even it did come with an attitude!
Enjoy the day, my friends!!

LOL!!! That is so funny, Linda! But she is cute, even if she has an attitude. Good luck choosing a "fancy" name for her. With her attitude, she could be Anastasia or Drucella, who were Cinderella's step-sisters! :o)

XOXO,

Cyndi

Very cool! I have wanted one for a long time as well! I keep dropping not so subtle hints to my husband!
I thought the ending today was pretty lame, too. I guess they are hoping to pick up the story line online?? I thought the last show would be more of a tear jerker..anyway, sad to see it go.
Have a great weekend!

What a cute post, Linda. I have two child size ones, but would love to have an adult one too.(minus the attitude)LOL
I'm no good with names. My white one is Rosie, but I never did name the one that lives in my garden. Sounds to me she needs to be named after a queen.

You will love her!! I have a wicker one! I keep my wedding dress on it in my sewing room. LOVE it!
YES, let's meet up for lunch. I suggested somewhere off 91, like at Savi Ranch. Deb suggested maybe El Torito or something. What time do you think? Like noonish?

This was cute! I am imagining her decked out for Halloween and Christmas...maybe a heart apron for Valentine's Day. This will be like having a big doll to play with!

Aw, cute!! I think you'll have to come up with a French name for her. Maybe Colette, Monique, or Sophie. Something like that :)
Blessings,
