Christmas at The Breakers

Hello, Dear Ones! I must tell you Mr. Precious and I left the day after Christmas to fly to Palm Beach, Florida(Mr. Precious' last business trip with fun mixed in). I apologize to my Dear Florida Blogging Sweeties - we were here only three days and I only decided to go at the last minute and being right after Christmas thought it would be a little selfish of me to tear you away from you families. I would have so loved to have contacted you to see if we could meet! There has to be another time or I'll just die!!! :(

Well, I had to share some of the inside of this beautiful place! My photos do not do this place justice! It was so gorgeous!

I just can't take night time pictures - even with the night time settings! Shoot!
There goes Mr. Precious! Wait for me!! That boy walks too darn fast!

All of these most beautiful flowers were real and of course - I touched them!

Perfect place for a photo! I'll share some more with you in a few days.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Puttin' On the Ritz

Have you seen the well-to-do
Up and down park avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air

High hats and Arrow collars
White spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time

Now, if you're blue
And you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the ritz
Different types who wear a daycoat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits
Puttin' on the ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like gary cooper

Come, let's mix where rockefellers
Walk with sticks or umberellas
In their mitts
Puttin' on the ritz

Tips his hat just like an english chappie
To a lady with a wealthy pappy
Very snappy

You'll declare it's simply topping
To be there and hear them swapping
Smart tidbits
Puttin' on the ritz
~sung by Mr. Precious and Me

It was back in the late 90's but I can still remember it quite well. Who could ever forget that beautiful place? We took a picture of our heads and shoulders wearing those white robes..lol! Aren't the fresh floral arrangements something else? Oh it was so fun to see you and Mr. Precious where we once stood as well!
