A Day at Turning Stone Casino....

Each year the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, NY displays a wondrous gingerbread village in the lobby....

...some of the houses are 3-4 ft high, and over...

...and they are decorated to perfection...

...a train circles around a part of the display...

(I spy Chuckles - my favorite candy!!)

...and there is more candy that you could ever imagine...

...and the aroma is so sweet...

...the attention to detail is amazing...

...and the creativity is magnificent!

The trees throughout the Casino and hotels are splendid and festive!

My dear friend Maureen and I had brunch at Wildflowers, in the Lodge...

...Do you recognize the sweet smile on the right?  Debbie from Mountain Breaths and her friend Colleen (on left) joined us for brunch - and there were a lot of Mackenzie-Childs gift bags being swapped....

...and a lot of coordinating totes, too!

I highly recommend the delicious pancakes at Wildflowers, too!

We all attended the craft show for a few hours and never gambled away a penny at the Casino!!

It's always enjoyable to meet up with fellow bloggers and blog makes blogging so special  and meaningful!
