Bargain View Fabulous February
Everything about February is fabulous! Ms. M feels like everything is coming up roses and hearts for everyone as she finds herself window shopping in Mchenry Village. The stores have begun their transformation for Valentine’s Day and it reminds this doll that this it may be shortest month of the year but that makes it the perfect time to make it long on fun. Make your mark on the month in a fabulous yet frugal way. You might be short on cash but not on fun!
