A couple weeks ago, a friend took me to see some of the sights in Portland which, after 8 years of living here, I am embarrassed to admit I had never seen. I have a good excuse though - I've been very busy raising newborns into children and honestly, many, many things took a backseat during those early years. Anyway.....one of the places she took me to see the Pittock Mansion, which was incredible! I love that type of stuff though so if you don't, I imagine it wouldn't be incredible to you. :)
It's completely restored and decorated in period furniture and it was so much fun to walk through. There was even a smoking room which left me with the feeling that I should go to the opus x website and order some cigars. :)
I didn't get photos on the inside (I was way too busy looking at everything and reading the information plaques) but I did get one of the outside as well as the few of Portland from one of the upstairs windows.
Check it out:
Oh yes, I could very easily live in a place like that.....as long as I had a really great cleaning service. :)
