84 and hoping for more.
Birthdays are also for looking back and here are some sweet pictures Sue Spivey took of the last workshop in the red cape. The year was 2005, when lightening was to strike the cape and change our lifestyle completely.
The big sun porch was 40 feet long, the full width of the cape, making a great place for the workshops.
Our dining room was the old kitchen with a wide hearth.
The living room or sitting room would have been called the hall in the 18th century. It was not large, just under 16 feet square.
The cape was originally built in 1768 in Willington CT.
My wonderful little studio building!
Garden between the studio and the shop building.
Cashmere goats made charming pets. If I would walk or sit near them most would come to nuzzle and be petted, they were armloads of downy sweetness for me. However they would butt each other around a bit.
Words cannot express my love for the little farm. e
