Wordless Wednesday | Christmas Decorations At Pittock Mansion, Portland OR

Wordless Wednesday is supposed to be about posting a photo(s) without any words. But, I'm a rule breaker, so here are a few words:

1 - While I was in Portland visiting my family, we went and saw the annual Christmas decorations at the historic Pittock Mansion.

2 - Every year they pick a different decorating theme. This year it was hobbies and pastimes including such things as knitting, stamp collecting, hiking, puzzles, card playing, painting, and my favorite pastime - drinking and eating.

3 - We don't decorate for the holidays on our boat, but if we did I think I'd do something with a bookish theme. Or maybe a Crazy Cat Lady theme.

What words does this picture(s) bring to your mind when you look at it?

  1. Pretty! We could easily do crazy cat lady.

  2. How fun. I would have liked to see that in person.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Ellen. ♥

    1. It's a really gorgeous place, especially at Christmas with the decorations.

  3. Very pretty, not something i could pull off with the critters here.

  4. With lights in the rigging and around the mast Tickety Boo would look fabulous with a deck strewn with over sized gifts. It would only be possible to sail in the harbour though. I personally like the display with the mixing bowl.

    1. We have some friends who put Christmas lights on their boat and it looks great.

  5. The Santa mugs made me grin. But the eggs puzzled me until I read Geoff's comment and it clicked with the cooking hobby theme. ~grin~ Happy Holidays!

  6. Beautiful photography. All the photos were warm and inviting

  7. Cheese is a dairy product full of healthy nutrients . It is commercially produced in varying forms by many food industries. Safe transition from manufacturing company to the customer essentially requires the durable packaging boxes. Custom Cheese Boxes
