Christmas at the Govenor's Mansion

The husband and I went to the Governor's Mansion in Montgomery, AL on Monday night. Each year the Governor (Bob Riley) and his wife (Patsy Riley) open their home up a few nights in December to the public. The decorations are just fabulous! Of course I was also noticing fabric on furniture, crown molding, and beautifully restored wood floors! Enjoy the pics! We only snapped a few because sadly our camera died before we left. Have a Merry Christmas (Alabama style!)

The "Black and White" Room was decorated by Pasty Riley herself! It was stated that this is the Governor and First Lady's favorite room to spend time in!

If you live near or are ever in the area during the Christmas Holiday's you should check out the tours! The mansion is beautiful. There is also a sister house next door to the mansion, the Hill House, that First Lady, Patsy Riley, has raised money to restore and has fully restored! It is gorgeous!
