Hello Your Grace,
You deserve all the rewards you can get.You are such a wonderful Sweet Lady deserving of a Dutchess.
Thank you so much for your words of comforts.I was upset of course,but it passed.I was more upset because it cost so much to send in the dolls.And my dolls are very big vignettes.Then they kept them for almost a yr. I will try again sometime.
Thank you again Hon and those pictures of cookies look so good.
XXOO Marie Antionette
