Mosaic Monday – The Biltmore Estate

Every time you visit the magnificent Biltmore house you see something different. My husband and I went last week and spent a lot of time in the Conservatory!

Biltmore

I wanted to join with everyone at The Dear Little Red House on Mosaic Monday!

Looks like a wonerful place to visit. Made me think there when I saw the bird cage with the flowers. I have one in the dungeon downstairs that if I got energetic I could use like that. Hmmm.

Hi! Thank you for following me. I wanted also to write and let you know that I really enjoyed your photos of the Biltmore Estate! This is a place I have always wanted to go. My son and his girlfriend (now engaged) traveled from Houston to a wedding not far from the Biltmore last year. They had the opportunity to visit the Biltmore Estate and LOVED it! Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos. Thank you also for the birthday wish to my hubby. Just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed the photos on your blog and also love your gratitute page. Have a wonderful day! xoxo Kim
