Well, we have spent the day finishing the finishes and taking down Christmas stuff. I usually do that soon after Christmas is over and got my desk now cozied up to the fire so I can chat with you, my friends!  : )

The fire feels so good. Hubbie has done an excellent job at putting down the liner and the stair treads. The matching 2 x 3 rugs for the top and bottom of stairs are on backorder. Can't wait. But here's a sneak peak. I thought Abbie would high-tail it up the stairs now but she still is leary with 3 steps.

Take a peekie from the top:

Stair treads from Yankee Sturbridge Workshop ( a new addiction)

This is the black multi.

BG did a good job with putting the liners and the treads on!

The 2 x 3 rugs to match for the landing up and down stairs are on backorder  :(

Anyways Abbie took a peek:

We were at the top calling her. But I don't think she is going to do this many stairs.
She just looked at us like we had 10 heads.

Nope, 2 stairs and on the way down.

Well, this is one accomplishment this weekend. BG has been vacuuming upstairs and cleaning out for the delivery truck for the new beds which could be tomorrow or 3 weeks from today.

Christmas morning was nice. I got way too much and somebody else who's name starts with an A did too.

notice the feet, and who do they look like????

Honestly, I didn't notice this until I bought this toy. Honestly.

Her Uncle Paul, said this is beyond spoiled. You think?

And again, I didn't intentionally realize this until I looked closer but don't you think this bow looks samplery looking?>>

And treats galore

Of course, snowman is her favorite. The carrot nose intrigues her.

XXSmall doggie T's

And after all that, she was even sweet, nose to nose, with Thomas at the door. She's NEVER done that.

Then we opened our gifts.

Just found out she completely shredded the pillow and chair pad I got from Yankee Sturbridge (shown in earlier posts). BG put them on the sofa instead of in the box where I had them.   Abbie I guess decided to shred them. I think I'm sick to my stomach now.

Carry on.


  1. You had me smiling all the way through to the end - then, uh oh! I hops those weren't a discontinued pattern, because they really were lovely. Love Miss Abbie's new clothes, though!

  2. Oh my but Abbie's sampler is just gorgeous and so perfect. I love the way you framed it with the fabric that is a perfect match! Excellent.

    Now why would you ever think that Miss Abbie is spoiled? LOL Adorable toys and her outfits are prettier tham mine! Oh, and Rory was pretty spoiled too. :)

  3. Abigail's Christmas Morning is adorable, Jennifer. Love the way you framed it.

    Miss Abigail is certainly one spoiled little Chi, But that is because she is loved so much.

    Take Care and have a Happy & Blessed New Year.
    Hugs, Sandy

  4. Abigail's Christmas Morning is so unique and lovely, Jennifer! Congratulations!

    Everything is adorable about Abbie...even her antics, who could resist?? Love your new stair treads, they are perfection!

  5. What a lovely finish--the buttons are so clear and pretty!

    Love your stair treads, and so sorry to hear about your other goodies; they sure were nice. :/

  6. I think rather than saying spoiled, it sounds better to say Pampered Princess! What cute things she got!

    And her Christmas sampler is so cute!

    Oh, I am sick to my stomach too after reading what happened to the pillow and chair pad!
