Christmas splendor....

We have a very rainy Thursday morning here.  Some parts of the country are experiencing blizzard conditions.  While a little snow for a white Christmas might be nice, blizzards cause big problems.  I hope you will take care, whatever your weather conditions are.

Recently we were able to go to a nearby town for a visit to a theater there.  Just as in most towns these days, theaters that were once very lively have given way to developments in the suburbs with shopping malls and larger multi-screen capabilities.  This may have happened where you live.

In this case, someone has purchased the former theater building and transformed it into quite a showplace.  It is available for private functions; however, on the evening we were there, oddly enough, nothing else was scheduled, and we - along with the Country Couple - were the only ones in the building!  We enjoyed coffee, tea, and ice cream treats - all delicious.

There was some marvelous Christmas decor that I want to share with you today.

In the stage entry.

In the reception area.

Falling snow.

The last picture doesn't pick up the snow that was being "recycled" through, just like a fountain recycles the water.  I had never seen a tree that would have falling snow going through in that way.

Feathers on the stairway to the balcony.

Crystal lighting.

More crystal lamps.

Then, there was this lovely bench!

Isn't it cute?

The ice cream was delicious, too!:-)

I send along wishes for a good day to each of you!  Next post - all about progress!

Thank you for reading.  I appreciate your comments.


  1. What a beautiful place this must be! I commend the owners for trying to keep an old building, from the wrecking ball.

    Hope many people frequent it, much of the time!

  2. Nellie, That is the sweetest place. I loved the trees. The bench is wonderful:):) We are having rain with snow approaching. I pretty much can do without snow. Stay warm. xo,Susie

  3. What a fun place! I never heard of a snow fountain. It looks really pretty. I love how pretty the Christmas trees are decorated.

  4. Oh, what a lovely place that must be now! Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos with us!

  5. What a lovely place to visit. The trees are beautiful!

  6. Nellie- What a neat experience. I love all the holiday trees. I have never seen one that had snow falling through it. What a fun idea. Blessings to you- I hope you got a nice little rest on the bench! xo Diana

  7. We had a front blow in, in the wee hours and the wind hasn't stopped howling. I feel windblown and I'm inside! Hope your weather stays manageable!

  8. Looks like a great place to spend some time. Nice that it wasn't torn down!!

    The first part of the day was nice here but now it has started raining. Just rain here but up at Happy Trails 8-12 inches of snow are expected. We will not be going up there this week or probably the next either!!

  9. Oh Nellie...What beautiful photos! Great job! Loved seeing all the beautiful decor. Thanks for sharing.

    And thanks for all your visits to my blog, too. Susan

  10. Such a beautiful place....full of atmosphere and cheer.
    Yesterday sunshine and warm, today cold, rainy and blustery, maybe a few snow flakes !
    Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas Nellie..

  11. HI Nellie! Oh, what a lovely place and sound like you had a great time there! Thank you so much for popping in to see me and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.
    be a sweetie,

  12. How nice that the original building has been saved. The interior looks lovely Nellie. I love your photos of the Christmas trees. Glad you were able to take time out and enjoy some treats with your family.
    Hope you keep warm as Christmas approaches. Sending best wishes for a very happy Christmas Nellie. Thank you for reading my blog and for your much appreciated comments.

  13. What fun decorations. That ice cream bench is fantastic!!

  14. Oh Nellie what a neat place to visit! The trees are all so pretty! I've never seen one with falling "snow" cool! We had a little snow here, so guess we are having a 'white' Christmas! But our temps re going to be very "cold"!

    Thanks for this wonderful post!
