We made our visit to Christmas at Callanwolde on Saturday....  The very festive tour made up for the cold & rainy weather! I've included a couple of photos of decorated trees below, but the large scale rooms & trees don't translate at their best in the images. Christmas at Callanwolde is open through tomorrow, December 17.

Following, was our annual visit to Polly the Potter's Holiday Sale - highlighting the goods & crafts of local artisans, including handmade knitted scarfs, wood accessories, folk art style items, as well as Polly's signature ceramics. This year, I noticed she crafted a couple of large platters, with holiday designs incorporating scenes from How The Grinch Stole Christmas!, and they were wonderful!

Topping off the afternoon, we stopped into Dr. Bombay's Underwater Tea Party (exterior image below) in Candler Park for tea & pastries....  This is one of those neighborhood spots that you've probably driven by countless times. Well, it's so fabulous -- cozy & vintage in style, and serving delicious baked goods, lite lunch items, coffee & tea. A real treat is to schedule some time to go for their High Tea service (which requires 24 hours advance notice), available from 3:30-5:30 everyday and is $30 for 2 people.
