I want to share a few beautiful photos of the trip to Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh that we took on my birthday. My two friends, Lori, BJ and I have been to Phipps in the past, but never at Christmas.
The gardens are decorated and lit with stunning displays of flowers and lights for the holidays. Its just breath-taking in person.
The photos are pretty, but it should really been seen in person to really appreciate the beauty.
This is the what it looks like as you enter the Conservatory.
The snowman is made of a bunch of white hydrangeas.
We had to get a few selfies while we were there!
Rows and rows of Poinsettias.
Very cool outdoors displays as well.
These were some of my favorites.
We even witnessed a proposal on the other end of this archway.
Check out these super cool tubes that lit our pathway.
One last photo of one of the beautiful trees and an ice skating reindeer.
It was a fun trip and my friends even took me to dinner afterward. If you are in the Pittsburgh area from now thru January 11th, stop by Phipps Conservatory to get a first hand look at the gorgeous displays while they are still up.
Meanwhile, back at home... I received this birthday card in the mail from Shannon West. Shannon works at Stampin' Up's! home office in Riverton, Utah. The most amazing thing about getting this card is that Shannon actually had a heart attack on my birthday and still managed to get this card to me a few days later. Unbelievable. Shannon is okay and doing well, I'm happy to report. This is even one of my favorite birthday stamps in the Stampin' Up! catalog. Marque Messages- how did she know?
She even took time to write a sweet note:
I hope YOU are doing well Shannon and I'm so thankful that you were able to celebrate Christmas at home with your family.
I'm glad you all stopped by my blog today... I hope you enjoyed seeing photos of my little trip to Phipps.
Come back tomorrow, for a sneak peek of the New Occasions Catalog which debuts on January 4th.
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
