Gorgeous shots! The pig in the window made me smile :)
Wow. Not only are you so so so lucky to have such an amazing and storied family home, but also to have forebears that valued preserving and passing things down. I don't think I have anything from even before my grandparents, which makes me very sad indeed.How did Elmwood get its name? Are there lots of elms on the property? Is the house made of actual elmwood? Inquiring minds want to know!
I can't think of anything more beautiful than this home- it makes my heart break it is so gorgeous.
Yes, keep the Elmwood posts coming. I love all of the pictures.
ugh, can we just all compile our blogs, get a reality show, and buy a farm together and make the whole show about working on the farm and redoing the farm house? Is that so wrong?!?!
Yes, John! I love it! We should put some sort of ex marc jacobs city slickers spin on it, too!!and PS- Elmwood is so named because there used to be a lot of elms growing on the property but they were all killed in the dutch elm blight of the 20s... boo...
What's the story behind that interesting lamp on the long stick? It looks like it's meant for something in particular, but I can't figure it out.
wow. this post makes me dream so much.. love the photos.!
I agree, the Elmwood posts are some of my favorite!!!! THANK YOU!"dutch elm blight of the 20's" While this is so sad it is also endearing hearing someone one say something that I usually only read in books....is that weird?
ps. what's the make and model of the camera you used?
Wow, first off, I'm impressed you read books that discuss the dutch elm blight. I'm not exactly reading Twilight over here, but it's not for lack of nerdiness. I've been known to dabble in Harry Potter, myself.My camera is not even a month old, my biggest and bestest birthday present to myself ever. It's a canon eos rebel xti.Oh and Laura- I'm not sure what the stick is for on the oil lamp.... anyone have any ideas?
AHAHA, Twilight (admittedly...and most ashamedly, I have!!!!) I would love to take credit for impressing you but I am sadly too honest. I haven't read about that particular "blight". I just meant how you often hear books mention such things, "the big blizzard of ___", "the summer locust blight of ___". It's so sad and makes one really appreciate of how easy we have it in these modern times, but at the same time there is something so whimsical about hearing such phrases, I guess it just makes books more alive for me.Am I making any sense at all or am I now drawing attention to myself as the weirdo that read twilight and likes elm blights? ;-)
these pictures are really great.
Hm, that does not look like a camera. It looks like a projector!
Wait a pretty little minute...I'm new to your blog but I live in NH. Where is this house? I wuv it.
It is very interesting and Id love it there,. My kinda place so peaceful
