Last December our STASH group planned to visit the Pittock Mansion, in Portland's West Hills, which is always decorated for Christmas, then have a nice lunch downtown somewhere. It snowed so seriously that none of us could leave our houses. Last December we just kept cancelling all kinds of things due to snow and bad weather, so STASH never got to celebrate. Yesterday we finally got to the mansion. It was a beautiful, cold, clear day. Every year different groups decorate the mansion. This year it seemed to be interior designers who each took a room. Pretty uninspired Christmas decor in my opinion, but the house is so beautiful that it is always fun to visit and great for photographing. One year the quilt guild decorated the house. It was better.
