Christmas Tour at Fanningbank



                                                                         Hello everyone,

                                                        Last night I went to the open house at
                                                        Fanningbank the home of our Lieutenant
                                                        Governor in Charlottetown. It is something
                                                        I look forward to every December.
                                                        The took lots of photos so you could
                                                        come along too. Isn't it breathtaking?

                                                                      So elegant and beautiful.

                                                                        I didn't use my flash and it was
                                                                        harder to get enough light but I
                                                                        think you will get an impression of
                                                                        it all anyway.              
                                                                       
                                           Shelley Campbell did the decorating again this
                                                   year and she always does an amazing job. She also
                                             decorates homes for people at Christmas time.



                                                                       Moving on ~ love this manger scene.

                                                               The first impression of the elegant dining
                                                                room. I love how the doorways were
                                                                decorated.
                                                                     The table is all set for Christmas dinner.




My photo of this tree doesn't do
it justice ......so beautiful!







                                                          There was a choir singing lovely Christmas songs
                                                           on the wide staircase.



                                                            Just a few shots in this cozy room
                                                            with a red and white theme.
                                                                       Beautiful!

Fanningbrook is stunning this time of year all decorated for Christmas. I haven't been there since a young friend of mine played in a concert there. The LG's granddaughter was one of the young ladies in my hubby's and my Young Adult group. The Island is a small place, isn't it? One never knows who they're going to meet along the way. Thanks for sharing, Carolyn, and enjoy your weekend.

Christmas blessings,
Sandi

Love the paintings on the walls, especially the one with the white cat & the nativity below it. The gilded mirrors & crystal shandies are gorgeous, a beautiful place. I would have really enJOYed the choir, too, Carolyn. I've added to my bucket list. Who knows! One day we just might visit PEI in December! XO Thanks for sharing your photos o Fanningbank. Really lovely!
Hugs,
Wishing you a beautiful day,
