My Victorian Christmas Retreat


Christmas Eve - Settling in my Victorian b&b. I am taking a "Step back in time Retreat of the holidays. Just some time for myself to relax and reflect. One must do this from time to time. This is my Christmas present to ME.
















 This was a beautiful Airb&b  in Providence.. The  most glorious old Victorian home with so much class and style. It was truly a "Step Back In Time". The host was charming and attentive to my needs. A delightful breakfast was served by the host with such care.
