Happy Winter Monday.

DH and I had a great Christmas Weekend.  On Friday evening we went to Chatsworth House for the Twilight Visit around the rooms dressed for Christmas.  Each year they have a different theme and this year is “Around the World in Eighty Days”.  Warning this is a picture heavy post!!!!

Unfortunately we did not get any pictures of the house outside as it was pouring with rain yet again!!!!  We got a drink and mince pie when we were in the Great Hall and there was a string trio playing Christmas carols.  It was a lovely evening and all the real fires were lit in the different rooms adding to the visit.

Tomorrow I will show you where we went on Saturday.

Happy Monday everyone.

Hugs, Susie xx

    That is simply amazing!!! I wonder how many people and how many weeks went into creating that wonderland!!?? And how long it will take to bring the rooms back to normal!! What is an anti-room?? Like the entrance to the room?? Anti-library leads to the library?? How far is Chatsworth House from your house? I put up the Christmas lights outside this weekend after cleaning the gutters…does that count? LOL
