Six Word Saturday - 6WS - 20 August 2011

Six Word Saturday  has arrived today...... via Cate from "Show My Face" blog where she offers us an exciting way to say what's on our mind.... or in our thoughts...all of course in six words.

On my mind today is.....




Why? Ever since Cate's trip to San Francisco, my heart can't stop thinking about going there again, (and including a stop over) it's only an hour's drive south of San Francisco to San Jose and the famous Winchester Mystery House!

A most interesting mansion with the world's strangest 160 rooms, that all began with an unfinished eight-room farmhouse and over the next 38 years Mrs. Sarah Winchester (heiress to the Winchester rife fortune) created a mystery that you can still visit today!

Also known as, "The Mansion Designed by Spirits" and will forever be both Beautiful and Bizarre, not to forget the unbelievable Gardens and Grounds about the sprawling mansion.

The Amusing and the Mysterious and all the curiosity in between will forever follow the memory of the late Sarah Winchester ....and FYI - the mansion is open for tours, facility rentals, special events, or even birthday party packages every day of the year except for Christmas Day.

Here's a link to filled with everything about the Winchester Mystery House.

Remember this famous San Jose tune....

thanks for visiting my blog (at the end of the day) and leaving such a nice comment. I was at the Winchester House years ago, was too late for a tour, but it was absolutely an amazing looking house with lots of history in it. I hope you get to see it soon! Have a great rest of the weekend!

Sounds like a fun adventure

Audrey O, sorry about that...the mansion itself (without all the hype) stands for itself as being quite a masterpiece in the making, I know it seems sometimes they need to use sensationalism with some things just to draw more public viewers, but the gardens all of their own are unbelievable, art in the eye of the beholder!

Thanks for visiting! I am following back. The mansion looks really interesting. I would love to get there one day.

And now we've come full circle because this post has made me want to go back to SF and add that to my itinerary. I think on my next trip, I'm going to make it happen.

Thanks for playing 6WS!
