When we were in Paducah in April, some of the St. Louis ladies came by our cabin for apple pie. They kept telling me about Joy, a lady in one of the St. Louis suburbs who has chickens, and all kinds of stuff.
After the Saturday workshop, we went by to see Joy and her house full of stuff. I think I want to be like Joy when I’m her age.
These are fake chickens but aren’t they cute and . . they just made me smile as I was walking up to her door. Look at the window of the house. There’s so much character at Joy’s house.
This is her front door. This is one interesting place!
These are some of her real chickens. She had several rooms with chickens.
These are some of her gardens. She has several greenhouses and most of the plants will soon be brought into those greenhouses.
This is Joy bending over to put a rock in the right position. Can you see just by the way she’s dressed that she’s quite a character? She also has bees and was painting beesewax ornaments when we arrived. She also sent me home with some of her honey! Such an interesting lady, and a quilter too . . a lady I will never forget!
