Holiday Traditions Open House At Filoli Gardens

Santa Cruz Woodie Club gals again made the trip to the Holiday Traditions Open House at Filoli Gardens on November 28th.  After meeting for a great lunch and chat fest in the Filoli Café, we ventured over to the mansion to begin our trek through this Christmas wonderland.  Stopping for a group photo outside the mansion, we did a pretty good job of hiding the fact that the vintage cars parked at the entrance were not woodies.

Maybe we can do something about that next year! Beautifully displayed throughout the mansion was everything from life size reindeer and polar bears, to soup to nuts, and everything in between.  A grand time was had by all! While we may not have broken the Black Friday bank, we no doubt hit the jackpot by spending time with our woodie family.
