Christmas at Brookside

 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.


  1. I love house tours, especially at the holidays! Such a beautiful home.

  2. Wow, that looks like a really fun tour. Love all those unique nativity sets, and
    what a wonderful look back. Beautifully decorated for Christmas.......
    Bet you really enjoyed it.
    Blessings, Nellie
