Amazing decorations at our house

Posted by Francesca

We, Frenchies, really love the holidays because of the amazing decorations that get placed all around the house.  It's fun wandering from room to room looking at everything.  Martha has quite a collection and it's all just so beautiful!

Martha asked Laura Acuna to decorate the house for Christmas.  I think she did a great job!

They're supposed to be Frenchies, but I think the one on the left is an imposture.  It looks like a Boston terrier to me.

Look closely! There's another dog hiding in these decorations.

  • Hi Gals,
    I am glad I don't have to dust all the Christmas decorations ta he! The house looks so festive and my Mama says she loves polar bears, any bears really that's why I think she adores Chow Chows they remind her of bears.(like Kirby Bear here at the wag)

    Have a happy Christmas gals and enjoy the house with all the many activities your Mama has planned for you. I think you gals should get in as many naps as possible before the parties begin. I think they already have.

    Have fun love bugs.

    Thank you to the WAG regulars who posted to me about my surgery. All went well and I am now recovering with restrictions on lifting and activity. I am glad I had it done before Christmas now I can eat without pain lol!
    Thank you for your good thoughts and get well wishes.

  • Good Morning Ladies,
    I am up very early today and Mom is finishing a few knitting projects for gifts. I am not too happy with her. Thought I would check out the blog and you girls sure do have a lovely home set up for Christmas. Everyone has been working very hard to get things in place. I know with your supervising skills your were a big help. Martha said on her show last week that she had many parties scheduled throughout the holidays, so you girls put on your bling and be front and center you hear? Have a great day.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I just love Christmas too; the tree, decorations around the house and the gifts all wrapped up. Mommy made some small houses a few years ago complete with a train. The train is under the tree most of the time unless I play with it and then it is in the middle of the room. It’s a good thing that it’s unbreakable or it wouldn’t have survived as long as it has. The Chow they had before me did the same thing. There must be something about that train that keeps drawing me back to it. Daddy says that Christmas only comes one time a year and to enjoy myself. Mommy just laughs and puts the train back. By the way, are dug out of the snow yet?
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Good Morning F & S
    Your house looks great all decorated. I didn't see any Christmas stockings - doesn't Moma Martha hang stockings for Santa to fill?

    Well did we get a snow storm this weekend - 2 feet down in South Jersey. We were all snowed in Saturday so Mom and I baked cookies all day - lots of them. Yesterday it took hours to dig out the cars - thank God for the snow blower. Mom had to shovel paths for me off the back deck and past the pool so I could do my business. I noticed that she sure did eat lots of Advil yesterday.

    I got myself into another jam last night. Since our Christmas party was cancelled Saturday mom had everyone over after they finished digging their cars out yesterday to eat all the food she bought. People finished eating and went in the family room to watch football and mom and her sisters were in the kitchen cleaning up so while no one was looking I climbed onto a dinning room chair and jumped up on the table to help myself to a few cookies. I figured that your moms cats are always on the table why can't a frenchie sit on a table. Mom turned the corner and thank goodness she didn't yell but just started to laugh. She took pictures of me up there but I knew I was screwed because I couldn't figure out how to get down. She said I looked like a centerpiece. Next time I have to have an exit plan in place before I get up there.

    Well mom has to carry me out to potty - I refuse to walk out there it's too cold :(

    PAM (Bosley Chow Chow's mom), I'm happy all went well with the surgery and that you are now recovering...Delia<

  • Hi Francesca and Sharkey: It sure looks like you had a good time looking at all the Christmas decorations. I'm sure if momma had a bigger house, we could decorate with more and more things, but this house will do.

    Momma made some glittered shell ornaments this weekend to give to her c-workers. They are the same ornaments featured in your mom's magazine. Everyone loved them - so beautiful to look at. Really high-class. Mom used the Martha Stewart glitter and followed the directions and they turned out perfect. Momma let me look at them, but she didn't want me to smell them cause the glitter would stick to my nose. I think that would be swell to have glitter on my nose. Don't ya think so???

    Hey Mrs. Bosley Chow Chow - I bet your mom will have the best Christmas ever. Feeling all better now and can eat stuff. For me, that's the best part and of course my new toys from Santa Paws.

    I think I shall have a nap now. It is awfully cold here in NC today. I love it when dad takes me walking early in the morning cause it just feels the best. Dad doesn't take it that way though. Well, it's off to dreamland for a couple of hours or so. Take care and see ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Hi Girl Friends, You sure did a nice job of showing us all of those beautiful Christmas decorations in Martha's house. I sure would love to be there to see it all in person, but your wonderful photos will do for now. I love the photos of the polar bears and Empress Tang. They are so cute and so are both of you. Have fun and stay warm. Love, Dudley Do Right xoxo
