Just a bit....

Saturday we went to the Maple Festival in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania.
My camera promptly died after just five photos.
Fairly typical for me.
So we have no photos of the Berlin Fife and Drum Corp in the parade (my favorite in the whole parade), no photos of the maple tree taps, no photos of the maple syrup bubbling away, no photos of the sweet horse and buggies and no photos of the yummy delicious maple syrup!  Even if the camera were working, the maple syrup lasted less time than the blink of an eye.  It was THAT good.  Pancakes and Waffles for breakfast and dinner...whoo hooo!
I do have photos of beautiful quilts.   These quilts were in the Historic Meyers Homestead which was the first stop on our visit of the festival.
So this is just a bit of a post...since I only have five photos and I was so busy admiring the house and furnishings that I wasn't **really** listening to the tour guide.  So I'll let them speak for themselves.

The photo below isn't actually of a quilt, but I thought this little lead glass window in the nursery door was rather sweet.  I was told it was installed to keep a quiet eye on the children whilst they slept.

Aren't those quilts and of course those rooms just wonderful?  I could have stayed in the house admiring the beautiful details all day.

I hope you enjoyed this little bit of a post....
