In The House

I promised to share glimpses of the inside of Historic Deepwood Estate in Salem – as seen through my camera! I know you’re going to love what you see.

A corner in the front parlor calls you to come in and make yourself at home.

The beautiful stained-glass window above the parlor mantel adds beauty to the front parlor.

Details of the carved woodwork above the mantel are enhanced by a gorgeous, red candle lamp.

On a nearby table, a beautiful chocolate set and an old, brass lamp welcome frequent guests.

Would you care for a cup of chocolate, my friend?

Seen from the top of the stairs, the lower landing is a beautiful place to rest a bit.

An old, oak-framed mirror reflects the intricate details of the paneling in the entryway.

A beautiful silver service and crystal candleholders are displayed on an exquisite oak buffet.

Afternoon sunshine and shadows dance across the original leaded glass door from the dining room to the side porch.

Around the corner from the dining room, teapots in the Butler’s Pantry wait - ready to serve tea to visitors who stop by.

A cupboard in the Butler’s Pantry holds dishes, cups and saucers and serving pieces.

A wonderful, old Victrola adds music to the beautiful, old mansion.

An old organ lesson book from days long ago is displayed on an antique pump organ.

The Carriage House is seen through a beautiful stained-glass window in the bathroom off the downstairs ‘master bedroom’.

Forgive me is I take you back upstairs to see a display that is dear to my heart. Just one more peek – please. I want just one more look at my yellow depression glass collection before the display is taken down.

Tomorrow – bits and pieces of the autumn garden at Deepwood. And a ‘visit’ with a furry critter who happened to get very close. Please join me for another part of this beautiful, old home. I’ll look for you.

  2. Oh, this home is gorgeous. Love those beautiful stained glass windows. It's so elegantly decorated without being stuffy, don't you think?
    I've also loved seeing your pretty yellow depression glass. It must be rare as I don't think I've seen much of it.
    Be a sweetie,

  4. Gorgeous! Do you use your flash on these inside pictures? They are so bright and clear. Whenever I visit a beautiful place like that my pictures seem to come out to dark.
