Weekend Wanderings


Happy weekend!  As I am wrapping up the last week and a half of schoolhouse related posts, I thought I would leave you a few fun places to visit (either virtually or in person!) for the weekend.

Hope you enjoy. 🙂

If you happen to be near Chappel Hill, Texas you can cook in a gourmet chef’s kitchen at a restored schoolhouse and stay in your choice of some precious farmhouses on the grounds of Wakefield Farms (photos above and below.)

Or, if Texas is not within driving distance for you, how about staying in a restored schoolhouse at Washington School House Hotel in Park City, Utah?

It is gorgeous.

Perhaps you are not a big fan of hotels and inns and would rather travel in your own little camper made from….a schoolbus!  Check out this one:

 If you are more of a homebody, you can just stay home and party this weekend.  Here is a little vintage school themed birthday party shoot that I thought was charming.

Or maybe you are more in the mood for a nice quiet weekend at home where you cook some comfort food.  Try out Jenny’s easy little cinnamon roll-ups.  Not only do they taste delicious, but your whole house will smell wonderful.

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Hello Kelly:

Thank you for posting about our Rosenwald Schoolhouse at Wakefield Farms! Could we return the favor by posting about your website on our facebook page (Wakefield Farms)? Thank you for featuring us!
Hi Susan! Wakefield Farms looks gorgeous! I would love to stay there if I can get to your part of the country. I would be more than happy for you to include a link to the post from your website or facebook page. Thank you!

What charming places. Who knew there were such great inns and “resorts” from schoolhouse beginnings. I always enjoy the recipes of Jenny Steffens. Since they just moved I assume it may be a bit of time before we get any new recipes.
Have a wonderful weekend. I sure enjoyed your school house series.
Karen – I found a site – not sure where – that tells about all these inns made from “different” beginnings – factories, schools, libraries. I should have bookmarked it. I believe you are right about Jenny taking some time before she sends us any new recipes. Moving is a lot of work!
Thank you for being such a faithful reader!

Wrapping it up? Oh darn, I was hoping to see a post on schoolhouse clocks. I love vintage (particularly vintage industrial) schoolhouse clocks. Regardless, thank you for this series of posts. I really enjoyed it.
Lisa – Sorry, I didn’t include the clocks, but I am tucking that good idea away for next year! I am so glad you liked all the schoolhouse posts! Thank you for reading and leaving your kind words here.
