Friday Show & Tell ~ Madame A.

I received the "Wonderful Mom Award " from
on Thursday!
Melissa, thank you! I feel so honored!

I think this award is written in French.
What do you think Debbie?
Could we have a translation please?
Congratulations Debbie,
I see you also got the award from Melissa!
I'd like to pass this award along to
Becky @
I can tell Becky is a loving, hands on Mom
who loves her children very much.
My show & tell today is something I probably took to school for show & tell.
Meet my Madame Alexander doll . . .
Isn't she pretty?
My Grandma Minnie gave this doll
to me for my birthday when I was in the 4th grade.
I remember she took me downtown to pick
it out at Billings Hardware.
That store had a large variety of hardware
items & things for the kitchen.
They also had a wonderful assortment
of dolls, books, & toys.
The doll is in really good shape for
being 46 years old!
Have a wonderful weekend friends!!

Congrats! It's so well deserved by you. I know you are so excited about your new grandson.

I also have a Madame Alexander doll I got for Christmas when I was nine.
That makes her 34 years old. I should show her too.

Have a wonderful week.

Wow! Thanks for the award! That was a pleasant surprise!
I will have to ask Chelsea to see what she can translate on the award. She is learning a little bit of French...

The doll is in great shape!

How nice to have kept it all of these years.

I have been so "away" that I hadn't realized your grandson arrived---congratulations!!! There's nothing better!

My grandson will turn 3 in March & I love him more each day.

As for your name search--Hank calls me "ya ya" & hubby "papa Gy"
I found that ya ya is the Greek name for grandmother & tho I'm not Greek I just love it!!

What ever he decides to call you will sound like music in your ears!

Little Town Big Life said...

Ok--I'm back with one more thing! I love that you have my little Abby's pic on your side bar. Do share how that happened!!!

Hi Carol
That doll brings back memories for me too. Congratulations on the award. It's not french though. I couldn't see it really well but it looks like German or maybe Dutch.

Hugs, Rhondi
