Hi M & M,

Hollie and Janie said...

The tin man is so cute, although, Maggie, you don't look very happy to be posing with him! You grandpa's fork and spoon are great! That's so neat!! Mama has a bench that belonged to her great-grandfather. It was her piano stool when she lived at home with grandmama and grandaddy and actually played piano!


We like your doll house. But we thought it was your real house at first and mommy was admiring your antiques! She's so silly!

Nice job on the silver.

Mags! I love that picture of you and Mitchy at the top of your blog. You both have such big smiles.

I can't wait for pink. You should include my videos from my Vimeo site. They are always pink. Even my brother is pink in one of them.


P.S. I'm with you on the food thing. Mom can't feed us anywhere near each other.

Hi guys!
Your mom sure does have a lot of cool Airedale stuff! And Wizard of Oz is a favorite of my moms - gotta love the Tinman!! I have 2 silver hairs in the middle of my back (they officially make me a brindle, so I prize them)!

Is that miniature furniture in the photo? And what's a huntboard?

I came over to say thanks for the tip on doggie dieting.Did you mean cut down on meat and replace with vegetables?

Good evening m & m
Washing the pane is beautifully made.
If a lot of cobwebs are put, it is unpleasant for a moment in Japan.
And, the sightly house has a lot of windows.

Congratulations on grandfather's birthday though it slowed.
The tableware of silver is good-looking.
It is a wonderful age.
The hair of the dark hair changes into an argent hair in Japan.

A wonderful weekend with a wonderful grandfather. :D

So pretty and shiny, your silver. Moma would have bee polishing tarnish off for a week if she'd taken pictures of any of our silver. She's got dozens of spoons that were her Gramma's, and they are more black than they are silver. We think you may have just motivated her to drag out the polish and polishing cloth!

Lovely post... and we always like peeking inside the dollhouse. Puts Moma into a dreamy mode.

Love ya,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Oh cool the Tin Man!! Mom loves the Wizard of Oz a whole lot!
