  1. I'm so incredibly happy that you like her so much! Tomorrow I'll put a little bit of something more on my blog about you and your sweetness!
    Thanks and get some rest after such a busy weekend so far!

  2. Oh My Gosh Sweetie...
    You hit the jackpot today. I would say that Lady Luck was smiling upon you. I love the baskets, and I would have bought the exact ones. They are just beautiful.

    Your kitty is SO cute. I can't wait to see what she looks like with your real kitties sitting beside her. If she had a little cat nip in her, they would really love her.

    What a win from Michelle. I love it. Precious win for sure.

    Have a great Sunday and I hope you get a little rest. Wining is exhausting you know. I love it.

    Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
