12 weeks for Abby and a treat for me

Sweet Abby just had her 12 week needle today.  She was a brave little girl :). Very well behaved and now having a little rest after enjoying her favorite bone.  I do so love this little pup

And she's growing like a weed.  It was only a couple of weeks ago she could barely stretch enough to peek out the window on the front door.  Now it's no problem.  And I was curious to see how much she weighed because I can definitely feel a difference.  She's my little chunky monkey.  She's a whopping 5.6 pounds!  If you remember poor little Millie barely got to 4 pounds.  

Now for my treat.  I splurged on myself today. And it has to be my last big house splurge but I could not resist.  Lauren.........you're going to be so jealous!  Lol.  I know how you love cabinets.

This is a 1930's Hoosier cabinet.  These are the sellers pics, as I have yet to fill it with goodies

I just love it.  It reminds me of my grandmother.  I love the enamel slide out baking table, and below it is a slide out cutting board,  it's distressed and chippy and I love it!


  1. Oh Kim I love your new cupboard!!!! and your little baby is growing like a weed.

  2. What a beautiful cabinet! It is gorgeous and since it reminds you of your grandmother...even better!

    Chunky Monkey? That made me laugh! Her and I are the same. We gain weight when we're happy!

  3. Great cabinet! Can't wait to see where you put it - post pics!

  4. I am so glad Abbie is doing so well and so are you! I am so excited about your cabinet!! It is lovely. I have wanted one for years. I am so glad you found one. That is so cool!

  5. Heh, you have good karma this week. Look at that cabinet.... Sometimes it's good to splurge and make yourself happy. A plus is that it reminds you of grandmother. That is so sweet. I'm looking forward to see what you'll put in it. Some egg coddlers?
    Have a great week.

  6. Yes, I do love cupboards...sigh. So happy you found one that reminds you of someone so special. Can't wait to see how you decorate with it!!!
    Oh, that Abby just melts my heart. Chunky monkey...lol!

  10. Hi Kim, sorry I haven't been around again for a while. I got a new laptop. My goodness what a thing to get used to. And I was unable to get into my blog account for a while.

    That cabinet is cool, I love it. And I love your dwarfs. lol

    And Abby is just soooooooo cute. I am so glad you have her and that you two are doing so well.

    Gotta run, take care....Janet W ((hugs))

  11. Abby looks cute. He is busy in his work. Cabin looks good...

  12. I always wanted a Hoosier too but never purchased one. Now I've no room for it but have plenty of other antiques which I enjoy. Abby is definitely a keeper and glad you found a good one. Love her new nickname. Looking forward to seeing pictures of the Hoosier in it's new location in your home.

  13. I just want to give Abby a hug she's so darn cute! The cabinet looks great. I just love the older things, sure beats modern in my book!

  14. In love with your cupboard Kim, wil. Be fun decorating. Abby is a darling,Hugs Francine
