Oatlands plantation Green house

The second oldest green house in the Country

 paper lantern?

a mixture of stone and brick underneath the stucco

The sconce I do like

I think it looks like an artists studio

close up of paintings and no info on artist who painted the two

A walk to the downstairs
Attached to the interior brick walls are pipes that are connected to the fireplace, the internal heat along with the  southern facing glass wall and roof capture the daily sun made growing possible in cold months.

Out the door is this huge gnarly red maple - It is so large ,  no info on the age of the tree

I am sharing with  Dwellings - the heart of your home - amaze me monday 

you can see the exterior of the home and gardens here in my previous post  - oatlands plantation garden and home 


  1. So much charm! Love the brick and stone peeking through the stucco. Your photos are so beautiful, I especially love the shot of the indoor window sill with the stack of clay pots, such a deep sill...beautiful!
    Thank so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday!

  2. Hi Betsy! OH, this is so interesting and I'm wondering if this may be an ancestor of my husbands. He's related to Carters from Virginia and is a member of the Carter Society who holds an annual reunion of family members. We'll have to check it out.
    I wanted to thank you for popping in to Cindys blog to see my home tour. I was just so honored she asked me.
    Be a sweetie and I hope you'll come back to see me sometimes.
    Shelia ;)

  3. Betsy! I was just so excited to come back and tell you that Robert "King" Carter is my husband's ancestry line! How fantastic and if you hadn't come to visit my home tour I would not have met you and gotten to see this! You've just made my day and of course my husbands day!
    Continue being a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. love all the flowers. that maple tree is amazing. ( :
