298th Inspire Me Tuesday

Welcome to the 298th Inspire Me Tuesday.  Last week a few of you shared some of the fabulous trips you took to see special Christmas displays all over the country.  Here are just a few.

Hyacinths For The Soul shared some fabulous pics of the Texas Governors Mansion that she helped decorate and took us on a tour of historic homes that are all amazing.

Old New Green Redo took us on a tour of the Wonderland Express at the Chicago Botanic Gardens.  Such fabulous detail you have to see.

Everyday Living took us on a stroll down 5th ave. NYC.  This is definitely on my bucket list to see.  The decor and lights are awesome.  A gorgeous tour you don't want to miss. The buildings, store windows and unreal decor and treats.


Decor to Adore shared an amazing tour of the 12 Days of Christmas at the Dallas Arboretum.  Each display rotates set to music.
7 Swans a Swimming

12 Drummers Drumming

A Tray Of Bliss shares some fabulou stories of "giving" when times are lean.  You will definitely want to read this post. - Inspiring

                To me it isn't Christmas until I see my two favorite movies.  If you                                      missed them, you can see them here.

It's A Wonderful Life - you can watch this movie free online.  A definite must.

             Of course I always have to see Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" too.

I hope your Christmas was the Merriest ever.

Ok, let's see what you have for this week.
