CHRISTMAS AT PORTLAND'S PITTOCK MANSION

On Friday, Dec. 13th (did not realize the date at the time!) I went with my friends Lisa and Beth to visit Pittock Mansion, a historic home here in Oregon.  It was all decorated for Christmas.  Of course, I took LOTS of photographs but cannot post them all (a little over 200) so will post a few to let you see the holiday decor.
 
Some rooms have ceilings that are gold-leafed so they provide a warm glow to the lighting.
 
Windows have unique woodwork.
 This dressed up swan caught my eye. Santa with his list is adorable.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I hope you enjoyed the view of their Christmas decor. I will show some of the special features of the mansion in a post in the future.
Merry Christmas!

  5. How good of you to share your photos with us. The Christmas colors and staging seem to stir atavistic memories of a past we likely never lived, but somehow remember! Nice mirror shot that captures Beth and Lisa! Alice
