We were among the first to arrive when the doors opened
to freshly-decorated Brookside,
the lovely Bass Mansion located on the campus of St. Francis University
in Fort Wayne, IN.
Fascinated by many displays of nativity sets and multiple Christmas trees,
I pretty much kept my camera ready!
Thirteen fireplaces (none alike) are decorated beautifully...
From lavishness to simplicity,
the tour never disappoints.
This year, my father went along with us!
I caught his reflection in the mirror above.
The spotlights were turned on when we exited the building.
We turned to admire its stately beauty as we headed to our car.
