If you live in the Portland area, be sure to visit the Pittock Mansion this holiday season! One of my sisters helps to decorate one of the rooms of this historic property each year (with much support from our mom, too). A few years ago she and her friend decorated the writing room, and as the overall theme for the mansion was “A Locally Crafted Christmas,” they focused on Oregon authors in their room. I made sure my local heroes were represented, including Ursula Le Guin, Jay Lake, and others.
Here are some photos of the 2013 decorations:
