It’s time for another round of article-sharing y’all! Link up your posts on antiques, vintage collectibles, history, and historic places, I can’t wait to see what wonderful things you have to show us all this week. If you’re not a writer and here just to read, we welcome you and are so glad you’re here. Let the We Call It Olde Link-Up, Week 10 begin! (Sorry, I just saw the Hunger Games sequel, I’m talking like Effie Trinket…)
My share for this week is a beautiful, historic place that I’ve shared before, Biltmore Estate. But this time I have Christmas pictures to show. We visited Biltmore at Christmas back in 2010 and wow, was it decorated beautifully.
Of course, with front doors this elaborate, a pair of simple wreaths is enough. I missed these two gargoyles in my gargoyles post in October – bad blogger!
Interior photography is not allowed in the house, so I guess my cell phone just “went off” and got this shot of the grand staircase. Oops! How about that domed ceiling?
I’ll tell you one thing, I don’t stand under that chandelier. Do you see that big, round tier up there? There are two more layers just like it below at the two lower floors. I can’t imagine what that thing weighs. And it’s all held in place by one bolt. The tour guide said so.
This lovely sitting area is in the Conservatory, just across the formal garden from the house. What a peaceful place it was.
Thanks to Kathe With An E for letting me spread the word about this link-up at You’re Gonna Love It Tuesday.
