Christmas at Phipps

If you are ever in Pittsburgh, you must see this beautiful place called Phipps Conservatory.
It was built in the 1890s by Henry Phipps as a gift to the city of Pittsburgh.
This is the extension off to the right of the main area and the same sized extension goes off to the left also. The inside is stunning and they change the displays with each season. I'll just share a few of my many pics but you have to come see it for yourself. 
This tree was so big I couldn't get the whole thing in the shot.

Not Christmasy but a fabulous glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. I love how it mimics the plants.

Look at these plant chandeliers.
How about these picture frames? Aren't they gorgeous?

This was such a wonderful place to visit and I can't wait for the spring show!


  1. Oh, the gingerbread house! The poinsettia display! The picture frames! That was all a breath of fresh air!
