The Gift Shop Is Open For Business!

I know I have been a little slack about posting, but I have been busy since we got back. Please forgive me. As the weekend drew near, we were off to the Biltmore House again! NO, I am not sick of it yet....

As usual, I have left the pictures clickable so you can get a closer look. I hope you enjoy browsing as much as I did.

Since I am pressed for time, I have decided to post some of the more important pictures *smile* first. Those of you that know me will understand why. The gift shop was under construction the last time we went, but look at it now!

These are the replicas of the Biltmore tea service. Aren't they just lovely! Expensive!

I like the cake server in this one and the tea for one pots.

Ahhhh..... a tea lover's dream! Look at all these! They have really expanded their tea accessories. It has been worth the wait.

Although this one looks as if it were taken in the house, it isn't. Remember the "no camera" policy? This one is also in the gift shop. I think this setting would have looked a little more authentic if the hardware on the door would have been Victorian. Hmmm....I think when they send me the questionaire about my visit I may suggest this.

In case you're wondering, I did ask before taking pictures inside the gift shop.
I hope to share the others later.

We're Back!

We're back from our wonderful vacation. I want to thank everyone for their prayers. We came very close to being in a car accident, but God was gracious to us again! I have been trying to catch up on everyone's blogs, so I haven't time to post right now. Hopefully I will get some pics on later! Happy Tuesday, everyone!
