From Palm Springs, we flew to Chicago, where the weather wasn’t so kind. After the quick drive to Woodstock, a quaint, little suburb northwest of the city, we settled into our digs at the Royal Victorian Manor, otherwise known as the “Cherry Street Inn” in the 1993 film, Groundhog Day. While in town, I did two presentations on holiday decorating and entertaining, hosted by the Fine Arts Association. Woodstock and its people are truly magic, and I encourage anyone traveling to Chicago to hop the train north and tour the town square, the charming stores, and the historic opera house. I know you’ll love it! Here’s the story that appeared in the local paper with a few of my tips on how to add style to your house this holiday season. Back shortly with more inspiration, including our own Thanskgiving table!
