This last weekend Paul, Matt, and I went to State College for a Penn State game. The game was Saturday night but we left late Friday afternoon so we would have at least one day that we didn't have to drive. It's about 3 1/2 hours from here.Actually we stayed in Bellefonte, a beautiful, small, quaint town near State College. Paul and Matt had attended a game last year during one of my trips to Texas and found this great B&B in Bellefonte. It's a couple's home where they rent rooms during game weekends.
This was a perfect house in a perfect place-I could have moved right in. What a fab getaway.
Here is our hostess, Jill, along with Paul and Matt. What a wonderful, gracious hostess she was. The home, the food, all the accommodations were fabulous.
Jill is a retired school librarian and her husband is an-almost retired minister. Jill is a weaver and a very talented weaver at that. This and several rooms in their home reminded me of pictures of Carl Larson's home...be still my Swedish heart.One of Jill's looms in the works.
Some of Jill's works of art. She makes rugs, throws, scarves, pillows, etc. All beautiful.A little close up...
The beautiful living room. The house was amazing and I spent way more time studying than taking photos.
