  2. Wow, first time to your site, Happy Birthday!

    Haven’t seen a Barbie Dream house in awhile! 🙂 Wish I still had mine (so much easier to keep up with than the house I have now!).

    I will be back! You have lots of great information and I look forward to reading it!

  3. Thanks everyone and welcome Melissa!

    Merci Melanie! – yes the White House was very French at the time, Jackie (Bouvier) Kennedy raised eyebrows with the Frenchiness of her style – including, I believe, importing a French chef. Quel horreur!
